Many sewers take their sewing machines on trips, including on quilting retreats. Pack your sewing machine in a padded case or box. Place the presser foot down on a piece of fabric to protect the feed dogs, and leave theneedle up (or remove it) so that it doesn't break. Bring just a few projects to help you focus your sewing time. Block-based projects are good candidates for retreats because they are repetitive and each block requires the same notions.
