    Default cases for machines?

    I am looking at bringing my machine to a retreat and need to get a travel case. What would you recommend? I have a large and heavy machine not sure what brands is worthy of transporting my baby.

    Tutto cases are nice, but expensive. They come in different sizes

    Before you speak,
    T - is it TRUE?
    H - is it HELPFUL?
    I - is it INSPIRING?
    N - is it NECESSARY?
    K - is it KIND?

    I have the Tutto case, it is very sturdy. I have an Elna Expressive 900 I had to get the xl size.

    I also have a Janome 7700, and had the Janome case with it but the web carrying handles on the case tore off. It was not a cheap case I was very disappointed in that one.

    I have this case for a Janome 6600 and love it. I replaced an off brand case that I had gotten at a quilt show after a wheel broke. The Tutto case is worth the extra money.

    I got my case for my first machine at Wal-mart and it has lasted for several years now. Since my Topaz 50 is bigger than normal I had to get it's case at Joann's. Both have wheels and a handle. I made a bag for accessories that hooks to the handle so I don't have to carry anything. Lazy, I know!

    I bought the tutto case for a large machine but in the next size up to top load. Easier to drop the machine down into the bag. I also purchased a piece of cushion foam and cut to size to protect the front screen of the machine when traveling.

    Be sure to check sizes as the recommended size may not allow top loading of the machine. You would have to load from the front of bag due to the zipper area on the top. Another consideration is the wheels. I want all four wheels to swivel for easy movement of the bag. Some bags have two wheels and two stationary points. You have to tilt the loaded bag to move it.
