    Best place to buy Ecolux LED light?

    I'm taking an online Craftsy FMQ course and the Ecolux 6 LED light was highly recommended to shine light on your sewing area (sticks under the arm of the machine). The "kit" lists at $75 (this includes the power assembly, which could be transferred to another machine if you buy another light).

    Anyway, I'm planning to put this on my Christmas list but would like to recommend the best place to buy it. Is it discounted anywhere?

    Thanks in advance!

    I haven't seen it on sale anywhere. I got mine at www.cottonclub.com awhile back and I love it. I need all the light I can get.

    I ordered one from the Ecolux website. I haven't noticed any sales on them anywhere. Get the 6 light set for anything other then a Featherweight.
    Got fabric?

    I just checked The Cotton Club and they have a bit of a discount as an intro price
    Also try Best Buy

    I had to buy mine from Ecolux. Nancy's Notions has it, my local dealer had it, but not in the configuration I need.
    I needed the 4 light for a 2170.

    There is a less expensive do-it-yourself alternative that costs $20 to $30. Here is a Youtube video explaining it:

    Thank you so much, Prism. That is certainly doable! My Christmas present to me!

    I was wondering it seems to me that the shadow at the foot (where I NEED light) is still there.Even on the long arm that was shown the place you need light was still in shadow. I don't care what I've already quilted. It's done. Am I just being silly?

    No, that's not silly, especially when sewing blacks! or trying to spear an intersection. You're right I need it just there, too. I just tried bending the bendable bright light so it shines under there and that does work well! Thanks for the reminder!
