    Sewing Light

    What do you call the little light that you can buy and put on the front of your sewing machine that lights up the area around the needle just as the fabric is being sewn? And where do you buy it? Thanks for the info. I think I am getting progressively blinder, as I keep needing more light for things. LOL Probably growing cataracts.

    I use a bendable light that I attach to my machine. It has little attachable hooks that you can use to hold the cord around the machine so the cord doesn't get in your way. The light is nice and bright and you can bend it to the best position for you. I bought a separate mounting kit for my second machine and that allow me to move the light from machine to machine. It is great when I am quilting on my machine.

    I also have the bendable light on all my machines
    Google for the best price "bendable sewing machine light"
    Keepsake and stores like them sell for $40-50. I've found them for mid $30s thru googling
    Good luck

    Well, don't get the one at Walmart for <$10. The sticky things don't hold up and the lighting has a tint to it.

    Bendable Bright Light. I bought mine from Fabric Depot online and they often have them on sale for $28.99. I also saw them on sale in a Nancy's Notions catalog recently. Just Google her name for her website.

    I love mine and can't sew without it!
