    Ott lite for crafts?

    Hello,

    Does anyone have experience with Ott lites from Joann's? I am tempted to get one and they are on sale now. Thanks!

    I have FIVE of them. Two I bought from JAF, two I bought at resale shops and the first one I bought when they first appeared at Quilt Market in the early 90s. They give great light for cutting, sewing and hand sewing.

    I have several too. I love them. I have short ones to move around, and tall ones to sit and Hem stuff.. I've had mine for years with no problem.

    Nice! Thanks! That is what I was hoping to hear. I will have to get one (or more) now.

    That's the time to buy them.....half-price! I have 1 of the floor ones (with the gooseneck adjustment). I also have one that has a antique gold finish and it seems to adjust more. But, definitely get one. I don't sew without at least one of them on. I have another light (a recycled one from work). If that ever breaks down, I'll get another Ott-Light!
    You will love it!

    DH gave me one for Christmas several years ago and I love it. It can be moved to whatever area I am working in and it gives me such good lighting I don't know how I ever got along without it.

    I've got one and it practically lights up the whole craft room. It's fantastic.
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Ott lights are nice, I have one for over my machine. My room was still too dark, I ended up getting a floor lamp & used LED bulbs, I no longer use the ott light other than when I go to retreats.

    And if you have a favorite light but it doesn't have an Ott bulb, you can buy just the bulb too.
