This is a great question. I would recommend traveling with your sewing machine as carry-on luggage, as that would be safer than checking it and risking it being dropped or roughly handled. There are many different varieties of carrying cases that you can purchase, many of which are hard sided and come on rollers. (Here are some good ones.) If you plan on getting one of those just make sure that it fits the dimensions of standard carry-on luggage.
I also recommend removing anything that could potentially be an issue with security, as they will most likely make you open the case and show them the machine – this could include needles, scissors, snips, screwdrivers, and other tools. All of these should be packed in another bag and checked.Hope this helps! And happy traveling!
