610Re: [WKneedle] Traveling with Embroidery
- Jul 5, 2004Everything should be fine except scissors, but that
can easily be solved by taking either blunt-tipped
scissors or a hidden blade device like the round
medalions Clover makes. You can get those anywhere
and pretty inexpensively. TSA says that knitting and
crochet needles are fine, but say nothing about
embroidery needles. I'd imagine they're too small and
unwieldy to potentially do much damage, but you can
always write or call to make sure. Also, you might
want to leave the scroll frames with screw knob ends
at home - my embroidery bag got searched the last time
I brought those, because they looked like two sticks
of dynamite to the scanner.
For detailed info, this is the TSA's report as of
November last year:
