Hi guys:)

Can anyone recommend an inexpensive case (or place to buy a case) for my machine? I have a Brother Cs5055prw.

I've only searched briefly but the only one I've noticed is this one:

http://www.amazon.com/Brother-5300-Universal-Machine-Carrying/dp/B0002KHBS2/ref=pd_bxgy_ac_img_y.

It's around 20 bucks on Wawak I think. I just wanted to make sure no one had any other suggestions before I bought it. We're getting ready to move and I want to be able to transport it safely and then have a case to keep it in when it's not in use.

Thanks!

Most places that sell sewing supplies should have generic cases that would be fine. I have seen them at Walmart, JoAnn's and Hancocks. They are all nearly the same and nice enough. If you wanted to spend more money you could probably find something nicer at a dealer's shop. I bought one at Walmart and it was fine; it seems to be holding up too.

I believe I would try JoAnn or Walmart stores first. Sometimes the case is too small for the machine and this would save time and shipping.

A softside may also be an option as long as you are the one who personally packs and transports the machine.

I have two of these cases - they will hold a serger OR a sewing machine. I have a sewing machine in one and a serger int he other. I love them. However, if I were going to transport a sewing machine to a class I would use my soft-sided tote or a rolling tote. These cases you linked to are wide and rigid plastic - they afford great protection. If you bought one you could put your machine, an accessory box and some padding in there when you move, but you would certainly take the machine yourself? I wouldn't have the movers toss it in a van.

Thanks guys!

I'm definitely taking the machine myself, I just wanted to make sure it would be safe in my vehicle on the way. Plus I wanted something to keep it in when I'm not using it and my toddler is prowling about.

I made a bag/carrier for my machine from an OOP McCall's pattern (the hole in the top is for the handle on the machine itself!):


When I moved, I "unloaded" the machine (took out the bobbin case and needle), and put a kitchen towel in the bag with it (but the bag is Home Dec fabric w/ thick fleece). Then put the bag in a moving box with other sewing supplies (mostly UFOs and stash). It made the trip fine. (I also keep my machine manuals in the case - even the ones for the serger, which doesn't have a case yet.)

Of course, if your toddler can use a zipper, it's not toddler-proof, lol.
