Packing a sewing machine April 18, 2011

Recently, I had to pack up six vintage sewing machines for a cross country move.  It was a daunting task, to say the least.  I scoured the internet and found only a few sources with tips on how to best pack a machine.  Although this was for a cross-country move, you could use the same tips to pack a sewing machine for mailing.  I would have been comfortable sending all of my machines to their new home via the mail.  I  took pictures of the process so that I could write up tutorials on how to pack a machine so that it will arrive undamaged.

Before starting, I was to thank Monty of Monty’s Singer pages and Bob Bannen of Sew2Go for getting me going in the right direction.  I took their ideas and modified them and expanded them to suit my needs.

As I get the tutorials up, I’ll come back and add links.
