    Has anyone tried this magnifier on their sewing machine and if so do you like it. My mother has trouble seeing while she is sewing and I thought it might help her. Thanks for your input

    I have not used it. But I did see one similar on a website with a light on it. I will bookmark this and search for the site.

    it looks like it'd be really handy for seeing to thread the needle

    Hated it!!!! Did not work on my machine at all. I returned it, and I rarely return anything!!! I purchased other sewing notions worth the same $$$. In reviewing what I got, vs. what I returned, I won! Don't recommend it at all!!!!

    i had to use one years ago. it was smaller but it was great to have at the time. my eyes weren't bad enough for bifocals but i was having trouble. think i got mine at Nancy's Notions. or Clotilde.

    I have a 6" round magnifier from Beverlys that clamps onto the side of the table -I can use it anywhere I can clamp it and that is very handy., Just a thought.,

    Oh, they have a couple of different styles. One for the neck, one that stands alone and the one you put on your machine. I found a link for the one for the neck and the one you put on your machine and they were sold out.
