Hoo-boy! This is an answer to my prayers. I'm using it for a major embroidery project, with materials that are worth close to $1,000. They include Benton and Johnson goldwork materials, duchess silk, hand-dyed linen, handmade papers, beads, kid, felt, and more. The tubes and skeins of silk floss are custom-dyed to accurately reproduce 16th- and 17th-century work. Add a bunch of small tools, and there's more stuff than it sounds like. In other words, this is a serious adventure.
I didn't want to trust all of that to a flimsy receptacle, and wanted everything to fit into one storage piece. Additionally, I want to be able to transport the whole thing easily without arriving at my destination to find a big jumble of materials. After searching around on line, this looked as though it would meet my needs - and it does. The pockets are generously sized, and I could easily put more items into one, expanding the carrier's use to two or several more projects. At least one more would fit now, but I like the idea of everything in one place, but only one project at a time; at least, only one of this magnitude.
There are zippered pockets throughout in a variety of sizes for thimbles, scissors, beeswax, a mellor, a tekobari (or other laying tool), needles, etc. Larger pockets hold a lot of floss tubes without putting pressure on the silk. With big pockets for patterns and/or fabrics, it's like an all-in-one storage system. With all the zippers, as well as a zipper all the way around, you'll have nothing falling out and getting lost. It also keeps out dust and cats. I recommend that you look one over.
