I know Ott lights are best, but right now I can't afford to buy one -- and I sew in my family room. (I've tried searching the board for the answer to this question, but I came up with 125 pages of threads about "light" weight fabric, "light" colors, etc) I have a floor lamp that I have over my shoulder that I always have on, as well as the overhead ceiling fan that has 3 bulbs, but I still have trouble seeing dark fabric at night. I wonder if a FULL SPECTRUM BULB in the floor lamp would help. Any thoughts? The ceiling fan won't take any larger-wattage bulbs because it uses the "chandellier" bulbs. I do need help though. I await suggestions.
