    I have a Pfaff Passport 3.0. It's a perfect little machine for travel. The power cord and foot pedal fit into the top of the carrying case, and the extension table has it's own case which attaches to the carrying case. The other benefit is that I don't need to mess around with a walking foot since it has one built in (the Pfaff IDT system). Everything is in one neat little package!

    I bought a Featherweight for retreats and classes. It is small, and sews a great stitch. I can put it in a rolling trolley and have plenty of space for my notions and fabrics.
