    New light for my sewing machine

    I went to the Dollar Store and bought a light for my mini refrigerator, worked great, however, as I turned around I spotted my sewing machine and said to myself, "Now that's where this light belongs". I attached it with a small piece of sticky back velcro tape.

    So now I have to go back to the store and buy another one for my frig.

    Oh I need to get to the Dollar Store! I need one of those lights! When I'm using the 1/4" foot with the guide my machine light causes a shadow right at the end of the guide which drives me nuts!! Don't want to pay $15 or $20 for one either! Thanks for the tip!

    Those lights are good for short term use. They don't last long at all. The battery doesn't hold up. It's cheaper to buy a new light then the battery. I have looked for a bright long lasting light that does not plug in as I have limited power outlets at most workshops and classes. I haven't found one yet that doesn't get dim after a couple of hours.
    Got fabric?

    Dollar Tree

    because of the long flexible wire I can bend it right into the area I want.
