Tip 1 from 1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & TipsBy DianeSev on 9/12/11 12:35 PM

Tip 1: Take It Along

Every Monday, we'll post a tip from 1,000 Clever Sewing Shortcuts & Tips.

An insulated, soft-side 54-can cooler is perfect for transporting a sewing machine. Look for one with adjustable shoulder straps, straps on each end in case you need help lifting, telescoping handles, and wheels. These coolers are nicely padded, with pockets to hold all your sewing notions, and, best of all-- pretty inexpensive. Check the measurements of your machine case before you go shopping.

For Jootz: Why would you not want a "can cooler" to become an "item" in the UK? Jeez why so mean? It's a good tip. Don't be a hater. Just because something is different doesnt make it inherently evil.

Joolz, climb off of your high British horse. Do you have a better suggestion for transporting a delicate computerized machine five times the weight and size of a laptop? If, so, fine, then please share it. But in the meantime have a little respect for people who are giving their time and energy to give their solutions to this challenge. I'm sure that if you are so averse to a 54 can cooler which serves many people here who visit beaches in the U.S. with large families and friends on our many beaches from Los Angeles to Maine to Florida to the Carolinas to Texas, then you certainly don't have to purchase one. Now let me thank Deepika and Deborah L. for their efforts. I am new to the website and have already found it a valuable resource.Carry on, ladies.

Hi Julie, stay tuned for more tips. You can actually download a whole chapter for a much better preview.

I have to say that if this is the "quality" of the tips in the book then I will definitely not be buying. As a UK reader of patternreview I had never heard of a "54 can cooler" until now and I hope it never becomes a known item here in the UK. Julie
