Im sure it could be boxed and packed well to protect it Sewn. Mum gave me hers and its in the garage, Ive never used it in the two years since she gave it to me. I have used one twice in my life and have to admit they are really handy for stretchy materials and doing edges on things. I need to get it out at some stage, its not something I could buy but I think they can be handy. I suspect its just a case of getting used to having and using one - sorry, thats not much help is it?
