Default LED light strips

Does anyone have a source for good LED light strips that actually work? My machine throws a shadow just to the left of the presser foot, so it's hard to get a true 1/4 inch seam -- I just can't see it!

I've tried two different stick-on LED light strips, and they've both failed. The first was from Amazon (wouldn't turn on at all.) The second was from LoveSew, and it worked for about 3 weeks. Yesterday the lights just flashed when I tapped the switch, and today nothing at all happens.

I've seen these lights in multiple places, but now having two of them fail has made me hesitant to try any others and waste my money.

This where I bought mine and other than 2 little dots finally giving up, it is still going strong after 3 years or more.

I bought these from sewsweetness about 6 months ago, and they are still working well.

I have this one on my Sweet 16 quilting machine and a Bernina I carry to classes and sewing days. I did get one that did not work which was quickly replaced, but both of these have been going strong for a year or so. I especially like that the lights are in a square rather than a strip.

I have one from this vendor: https://jukijunkies.com/product/sewi...d-light-strip/
It has worked very well for me and my experiences with this shop have been very positive.

I have the same set as Watson and have it on 2 of my Janome machines. Been working now for over 4 years, and makes a huge difference in my ability to see. Here is a link to it on Amazon
