To protect your sewing machine, we've kept a range of hard and soft models, but we've removed the Luova Pink and the Kenley Tote Bag due to availability issues. Note that the remaining models come in a variety of sizes. You'll need to measure your machine carefully before selecting, as each case is not necessarily one-size-fits-all. Choices on the larger side of the size spectrum include the Brother 5300 and the Singer Universal. They're big enough to hold most machines, but smaller ones can slide inside them, so you may need to add some padding for extra stability. But because they have hard sides, you can expect top-notch protection for either storage or transit. There's also the Luxja Purple, which you can carry on your shoulder thanks to a removable strap, and the Everything Mary Deluxe, a rolling tote with plenty of pockets — over 20 storage spaces, in fact. These can accommodate most standard models.
For a smaller case, look to the Janome Canvas or the Singer Black, which are both on the shorter side. The former comes in a variety of fun patterns, while the latter, true to its name, is a plain black color. But both have simple zippers and ample tote handles, making them a cinch to use. Or, if you have a diminutive beginner's sewing machine, there's the Janome Half-Size. It pairs well with compact models, and with its black body and contrasting trim, it's elegant and stylish, but not too garish.
Bluefig Designer Series Designed for large to extra-large machines, the admittedly pricey Bluefig Designer Series is a traveling model that rolls smoothly on four 360-degree swiveling wheels. But when you don't need it, it collapses fully, so storage shouldn't be an issue even in smaller homes. bluefig.net
Tutto Monster Machine on Wheels The Tutto Monster Machine on Wheels is big and sturdy, but that doesn't mean it's unnecessarily bulky or heavy. In fact, it has a lightweight fiberglass frame that will safeguard its contents, as well as interior straps that keep everything securely in place. tuttocases.com
Janome Horizon Rolling Cart The Janome Horizon Rolling Cart was specifically designed for the company's Memory Craft 15000 and 14000 models, exceptionally expensive sewing machines that deserve the best protection. This cart has multidirectional trolley wheels and a telescoping handle, so you can maneuver it with ease. janome.com
