I am thinking of getting a Tutto bag for my Pfaff Expression 2034 and/or my 7510 that I use for classes frequently.

For those of you that have Tutto bags and hard shell covers for your machines, do you use the covers while they are in the Tutto bag for transport or not?

I do not use the hard covers when I pack in my Tutto. I guess you could, I just never have. I LOVE my Tutto bags!

I don't use the hard cover in my tutto bag. I don't really care for those covers, they stay in the closet unless the machine is going to the shop.

Thanks, ladies! I guess I just need to figure out if I want to go a little bigger so I can top load the machine or just load it from the side.

Have you found the top handle to be pretty sturdy? I have to carry it down 3 flights of stairs.

If it matters, I am debating between the medium and large size.

I can top load my Janome into my Tutto bag and I love the extra room for fabric and notions and such. The organizer panels are nice for small things. but I was also able to bring an Ott lamp, surge suppressor and extension cord.

A dealer told me to carry the machine by firmly holding it under the arm of the machine without a cover. Never trust the handle of the carrier or machine. Put a piece of fabric under the foot, foot down and needle down. Pfaff Sensation and all my other machines get carried that way.

I would get the large! It is VERY nice to be able to carry all your stuff in one bag.

Here is my little Passport in his large tutto. You can't see it in the picture, but next to him under that purple bag is an iron. When I go to Project Linus meetings I can take EVERYTHING I need into his case! This case also fit my Quilt Expression 4, but I have never transported my Creatives in it.


It has super long straps also that you can use to secure things on top. I had 3 bags of batting a HUGE bag of donated fabric and a big shopping bag on top, plus was able to fit a 50x50 quilt in the bag on top of the machine.

I don't carry it strictly by the handle for long distances, but so far no problems. My machine though is VERY lightweight.

I think I am going to order a large one! Now, I just have to finalize a color. LOL
