    Wonderful idea, one could also sit a quilting block or pieces upon it when having to take out stitches, therefore seeing the stitches better. Going to get one.

    For the batteries running down, I have a battery charger than takes 30 min. Just bring 2 sets of batteries, and you have an unlimited source of batteries. I use this with my flip-pal scanner. i need to test a light box for copying slides with a digital camera. I have a small light box somewhere in the house. For copying quilt patterns, I've most often used a window during the daylight. That's free.

    I needed to trace some things the other day for a quilt I'm working on and ended up using a box, my very bright led flashlight(the BEST flashlight ever!) and my big square clear ruler. When I get a package I always break down the box to I can fold it up and add it to my stash, so I just grabbed one out, unfolded it, put it on my table, put the flashlight inside facing up and layed my ruler over the top, worked perfect! When I was done I just refolded the box and put it back, would probably work pretty good for travel too.

    I just came from my local Wal Mart and I got the Crayola Light-Up Tracing Pad for $10.00 in the Xmas Toy Clearance. Its the super slim design and is blue and silver. It takes 3 AA batteries.

    I was am looking for a light box for my shop front desk including some led lights in it. Is it possible to use led light which cost less and give me more benefit.

    Amazing the ideas quilters can come up with to save money and not purchase the expensive items made for quilting. I am going to remember this for the next 50% coupons from Joann's or Michaels. Thanks for the great idea.
    Happy Quilting
