Do you craft and travel?
I have met folks who bring their travel machine with them on the shortest of trips and those who take a break completely. I tend to bring embroidery and then ignore it - just knowing it's there just in case I feel crafty makes me happy!
What's your crafty travel style?
I usually take a panel of something to hand sew/applique (usually turned into bags later, like this pigeon bag). If it's winter weather I'll definitely take something to knit (bonus: I've found that some domestic flights in Australia allow knitting needles!). I actually sewed my first dress on my mum's machine during my Christmas holidays from uni and so before I got my own sewing machine the only times I got to sew were when I visited my parents. I'd never heard of a travel sewing machine - I can only imagine the look my husband would give me if I bought one of those!
I need to learn to crochet though....I've held off on that one as I never understand the diagrams and don't know if crochet is ambidextrous or I'd have to learn it left handed.
Thankyou Trish...so proud your son outgrew his asthma.. I worked in Respiratory therepy for 25 yrs.. so I worked with those kind of patients.. I never had it as a child , But, developed it in my 30's..and it just kept getting worse.. yuk...

Yo yos are handsewn, small and rewarding - you could start a quilt made from them!
oh i need the answer to this! i am always at odds to get my crafty fix away from home. i used to knit but now all i want to do is make clothes. and my featherweight, no matter how portable, is not getting on a plane with me.
i guess it's almost impossible to get a sewing/gamrnet fix on away from home. all the notions, patterns, your scissors... has anyone found a sewing fix?
