From that point on I had portable tool kit envy.
A tool kit on wheels has so much potential. But what to buy and why did I really need one?
It took my husband John to figure it through for me.
At Christmas 2017, what to my wondering eyes should appear, but a Husky connector tool box with cool connecting tool box tiers.
We will start at the bottom compartment and work our way up. The bottom bucket fits my Bernina sewing machine, table attachment, and any extra feet I might need for teaching or just out-and-about sewing. My biggest concern was the machine shifting about and being damaged, but no fear, John to the rescue. He made a foam cut out for the bottom of the "bucket box". This box has no lid and sits on the wheels. It can stand alone, but will always be attached to the wheels and the handle. It is an easy lift to pull out the sewing machine.
For my purposes, it is used to tote about an iron wrapped in a towel, Sampler pattern kits, lesson binder, samples and square rulers, such as the Tuck Trimmer III. This part of the travelling tool box sits on top of the "bottom bucket" where the sewing machine is held. It is a unit unto itself, in that, it has a lid with a handle and can be easily detached from the wheel assembly.
Curious. Drop by the FibreChick Shop and check out my tool kit. Or on May 4, 5 & 6, 2018 join us at the FibreChick Crafters Retreat at the Canadian Ecology Center in Mattawa, Ontario where the travelling tool kit will put to good use
Till next time, all the best, Kim.
