As obviously I will become an instant domestic goddess if I have one!

I rather like some of the ones on the CK website (

but am wondering if the house/caravan are a bit twee!?

John Lewis have some nice ones - DH gave me a sewing stool like the third one on that link, except mine is dark red with embroidered/appliquéd flowers. It's nicely organised inside, with a lift out tray and a pocket and a pincushion in the lid.

I have the CK house and I love it!!! Still not very good at sewing, but least I look the part.

<all the gear and no idea>

Mine came from John Lewis a couple of years ago. It is red with apples on. I have the matching pin cushion and knitting needle wrap too blush

I also have one of these but it isn't quite as portable!

I have the gypsy caravan one.(bought by my dds).It is very sweet and pretty but not madly well made,I don't think it will last for yonks,but it holds a reasonable amount of stuff.

I have a double handled one, from JL. Bought it last year.

The only gripe i have with it is lid-flaps don't open wide enough for me, the 2 halves sit at right angles and fall shut.

I have a grey plastic one which is functional but not pretty!

Jemima has just reminded me that I have a fold out wooden one that I never use and must stick on Ebay!
