- Organize, organize, organize! I know I've said it before, but it bears saying again.
- Make sure your scissors are in your bag. Not having them makes it difficult to stitch; trust me.
- Use a hoop or a Q-Snap to make sure tension is maintained.
- Bring along a clip-on light and/or magnifier to make sure lighting is optimal. You can also use these once you arrive at your destination to complete your projects.
