I have the bendable light that attaches to your machine. I like it very much, as my overhead lighting is very poor in my room. The light is a bit expensive, but I use it alot. Jan :shock:

I don't know if everyone is talking about the same thing, but the one I have, called the Bendable Bright Light, is an LED light. I use it sometimes, but I find that it has too much glare - when I mentioned this to the eye doc a couple of days ago he agreed that LED lights are "blue" and can bother your eyes because the light is so concentrated in one place.

I much prefer my ott-lites which are natural daylight lamps.

My Bendable light is white light. I just double checked.

I have one, and love it. I got extra mounting kits so that I can easily switch it from machine to machine. For me that was more economical than buying more than one light.

QUESTION: any chance the magnetic holder might interfere with the sewing machine's electronics?

ppm, it isn't magnetic. It's the same kind of sticky that those stick-on wall hangers use. You are correct that you should not use magnets near a computerized machine.

oh good. Also wondering about those magnetic pin holder dishes that don't have the rubbery covering. They're sitting very close to the sewing machine...

I have one attached to the head of my quilting machine - I can easily see inside the hopping foot and when I bury the threads I just move the light so I can see the bobbin thread hole to put my needle through. Least expensive I found was $35 - most are $50 - but definitely well worth it!

I haven't seen them for less than $45 and that wa s an in store 10% off. I love mine, although, I didn't think when I first applied it soeverytime I changed threads I lifted the cover and had to readjust the placement. It also got out of place if bumped. I now took some white plastic tape and taped over the bendable neck and have not fidgeted with it since. I do like it. I bought a second mount so I can move it to another machine.
