Last January I attended a fun retreat hosted by Helen Thorn. One of the gals brought a Plano Pro Rolling Work Station. She had all her tools, projects and a secret stash of chocolate--all on wheels. Cool!
Of course, we all had to run out and buy one of our own when Maureen let us know they were on sale. Since there's only one Menard's in my area, they sold out before I got there, but I was able to special order one at the sale price--whew!

Hurry--the work station is on sale until the 15th of September!
|The lid has a handy cup holder.|
|Under the top lid is a roomy storage area.|
|A front panel drops down to reveal three drawers.|
|At the bottom is a large bin perfect for stowing the projects you plan to work on at retreat.|
|This metal bar slides down the front to secure everything while in transit--don't want to lose any of those quilting goodies!|
|At each side are these holes in case you need to bungee cord more stuff onto the top of the cart.|
|You can wind your power cord onto these toggles on the side.|
|The securing bar fits on the opposite side when not in use. |
Notice the nice big wheels.
|When it's not packed up for a retreat, I use mine for a "hexie" station.|
(The Nonni's biscotti trays fit nicely in the drawers to stash stuff neatly.)
The little ruler boxes are from Temecula Quilt Company.
|When I need to work on my hexagons, I can roll the station to my sewing chair and use the top surface as a table.|
Tip: Don't load so many heavy things in the workstation that you can't get it in or out of your car!!
