Has anyone used the Bluefig wheeled sewing machine carrier? Do you like it?

I do not have this one, but I can tell you a soft-sided trolley will wobble when transporting a heavy machine.

I got this rolling tool bag for my Juki TL98Q, which is larger than most sewing machines.

My local Harbor Freight Store had it in stock.

I bought the Blue Fig 23 roller combo to use with my Bernina 830LE sewing machine and embroidery unit. I also bought the foam inserts that help cushion and support each unit. That is one big, heavy, wide, bulky, cumbersome machine to transport. The Blue Fig roller case does an adequate job.

trolley

You mean this one? The small one in the picture would be ideal for most sewing classes so we could take the "tools" of our trade with us. I love all those pockets!

Is the handled one strong enough for a sewing machine? I did not see how much weight it could handle, but as it is made for men's tools and so forth, it should easily handle a 20 pound sewing machine.

I am a Quilter at heart. I love to play with fabrics, patterns and colors. Recently I have discovered I enjoy doing applique. I love making pictures. Using a sewing machine is much easier than counted cross stitch or oil painting for me. I enjoy landscape quilting as well. I am working on my first applique project in the spring of 2014.

Yes, I use the small one to take small items and projects (and it also makes a great cosmetic bag for vacations.) My machine is pretty heavy, so I like to have a man in the house carry it upstairs and then I can wheel it to the car. I don't have trouble with getting it in and out of the car and it's no problem to wheel wherever I need it to go.

I saw that at Harbor Freight just a few days ago and thought it would be great for transporting a machine. It seemed sturdy and the price was great. DS is stocking up on his construction tools these days and I was trailing him around, Home Depot and Lowes also have ballistic nylon carrying bags for tools and wheelies, Home Depot had a really nice kit where it was a rollie with another one that could stack on top. I always look at hardware stores with a sewing eye.

Thank you for the tool bag suggestion! It was a great price, and very roomy.

How sturdy is the blue fig? I am looking into buying one and wondered. What color did you buy?
