Transporting the machine can prove to be quite difficult which makes this carry bag is a must for every Scan n Cut machine. It protects your machine while transporting to and from classes etc. and is easy to carry. The firmer the stabilizer inside the bag the better it will be. When you have reached your destination, simply open out the bag to lay flat. Firstly, your tools are all ready in the secured zip up pockets that hang down in front. Secondly it can also be used as a stabilizing mat. Vibration from the table can upset the balance on any type of machine and this bag will absorb it. The mats are long and cumbersome to carry but with the matching carry bag this becomes a dream.
