I really really really need to have my hubby make me one of these for when we are on the road!

Everyone always thinks it's funny I hand sew while sitting in the passenger seat but this would be heaven!

Do you think it would be possible to do this with our embroidery machines?

Even for a passenger - in the U.S. would probably also get a citation - with an air bag deployment could kill you (and even with a small fender bender and injury, your insurance company could write you off for having it there). Looks fun, but safety first is the motto in my household :-)

I think maybe in a moor home when it is parked this would work well*** hugs from Canada

They were testing a self drive car here,in Australia a few months ago

by sewist1 19 Aug 2016

I am sure here in Australia we would be fined for doing something like that. It is a safety issue.

Sewmum1 by Sewmum1 20 Aug 2016

Yes we definitely would be fined for sure and the insurance would be an absolute nightmare, if anything happened, but a girl can still dream.....

same in Belgium I guess, it is not allowed. You can not draw attend of the driver(s)

zoefzoef by zoefzoef 20 Aug 2016

.. but if ever in future we would get self-driving cars.. this can be an option...

She's in the passenger seat, right. When I worked for an insurance company, we kept an informal list orally in the breakroom of the most dangerous things we had seen drivers doing in Atlanta rush hour traffic - it would terrify you. Removing curlers from hair, brushing hair, putting on mascara, reading newspaper folded in half, working on laptop in lap between lap and steering wheel, phoning, texting, and of course, drinking and dining, entertaining children in the back seat...

.. and this was on the list too ?

by sandyqueen 19 Aug 2016

Yeah Featherweight owners. I have 2 and hubby has my mom's. 13 pounds so I take it with me. Made of metal and they sew great.

would not do me any good since I'm the one who has to do all the driving. Wonder what would happen if you were on a rough road. they seem to be everywhere these days. Some of the roads in Alabama are horrendous./Lillian

by marianb 19 Aug 2016

Every girls dream sewing on the move, imagine how much extra we can get done..

by jenne 19 Aug 2016

I can't imagine me doing this< I can't even read while in a moving car I get sick if I did. How great for you.

by mrskiki 19 Aug 2016

I have tried working on my computer while husband drives and it is just too bumpy. I do read and crochet, but can't imagine actually using a sewing machine! Hugs. Nan W

by sandralane 19 Aug 2016

The mind boggles at what may be possible, I could not however do any thing but knit in the car. I would get car sick very quickly if I took my eyes off the road. Sandra.

by crafter2243 Moderator 18 Aug 2016

I would get carsick. Can not look down while in a car. Amazing idea and too funny.

by orangetiger 18 Aug 2016

Now this is the way to go. I sew a lot on the road but by hand. How does she power the featherweight I wonder? Uh oh, now I remember that our newest vehicle has an electrical outlet!
