Carry On

I'm sure you were wondering how to transport a sewing machine if you aren't traveling by land. 

First, there is the option of shipping it and waiting an extra long few days for the already highly anticipated new gadget.

Secondly, there is checking it with other luggage on an aircraft. Um fragile!?

Third (and also counting for an arm workout), - carry that bad boy on!
And carry it on I did. Can't say I've ever had that many people staring at me walking through the airport but I'm sure i wasn't the first to do it. 

I was worried that it wasn't going to fit in the overhead compartment. I called the customer service number to see what my best option was. They didn't seem concerned that it wasn't going to fit, but I wasn't convinced. Not until we landed back in Alabama. It made it, it's set up, and sewing. Traveling can be stressful as it is but way to go me for throwing another element into the equation. 

Later on I'll tell you about my latest sewing project. It wasn't a total fail but an excellent learning experience. 


  1. Whew! Glad you were able to get it home with you! Mine is still at my mom's, mostly because she actually uses it and I have NO IDEA. haha

  2. Great Job! I doubt it's the oddest thing people have carried on. You rock!
