I'd heard about the Bendable Bright Light in my quilting class, and thought I had to have it. It was pretty pricey, about $50. It is an LED light, has a plug, no batteries required. The light is SO BRIGHT, I would recommend it to everyone. It attaches to your machine, and you can direct the light anywhere you want. I found it online for $27.95, about half the MSRP. I just love it!
