I am not really sure where that expression came from. Betsy uses it all the time when she packs up a machine for shipping. She actually uses a slightly different version. (Use your imagination) As I was packing the featherweight on Saturday. I kept thinking about it.
Tight is good. You really don’t want anything shifting around. It is also prudent to have the packing able to take a beating. I use foam insulation to line the box. I used to double box the machines but the foam insulation works the best. It is lightweight and strong. It protects the corners of the box and because it is light, shipping costs are less.
Two machines are off to their new homes now. The quilt frame is scheduled for delivery in ten days. I guess I should take a look at the inventory and see what machine is next for market. I am thinking about the black 301. Or....maybe not.
