    Just wanted to ask who has bought the Bendable Bright Light? If you have, do you find it helpful, or not so much?

    I have an Ott Lite and I love it! Mine is not one of the bendable ones, but I plan on buying one for another machine and will be getting the bendable kind.

    My SIL bought the bendable one and she loves it also.

    The light is like daylight. You can see acurately even on dark fabrics. I sew a lot during the night, so this is great for me!

    I have a bendable bright light and absolutely love it! Puts the light right where I need it - these 60-something eyes aren't what they used to be. You can point it right on the sewing foot or in front of it, or flex it toward you for ripping. Well worth the price.

    I have the bendable light you attach to the sewing machine and it is great. I can really see now. It has been wonderful. Cost a little more than the big lights but so worth it. This is the one you attach to the machine with a hook and it's right next to your needle and you can move it around too. Hope this helps.

    If I needed to get another one, that is the one I would opt for. I have a desk light (Ott-ish) and it is a huge space waster plus the way the arm extends is anywhere but where I need it.

    I am not that far away from 60 myself and I know what you mean about the eyes not seeing what they once did.

    Prices vary -around $27.99 - $49.99 from what I've found. Has anyone seen them for less?

    I bought mine at Joanne's in the sewing machine dept. They wouldn't let me use my Joanne coupon for 40% off, but said if you bring in the coupon from Joanne's that is in the paper we will give you the 40% off. I did and they did. Don't ask - I have no idea why but I got my 40% off LOL

    The bendable bright light that attaches to your machine is the best thing since sliced bread IMHO. I love that litle jewel! I can actually sew at night with just a lamp on in the room & see very well. And it does not put off any heat!

    My DH bought me one for Christmas & I loved it so much that I bought another for one of my other machines. I could have moved it between machines but just thought this was easier. It really made a big difference for me.

    I was given one for Christmas and loved it so much on my "home" machine that I purchased a second one for my "travel machine" I have an Elna Quilters Dream at home and a Janome Jem for going to retreats, classes, etc. Neither one had very good light and "I can see clearly now" Worth every penny!

    One of the best purchases I ever made was my bendable Ott light. It's a desk top lamp, so I can take anywhere to do my hand sewing, crafts, reading, or taking out stitches when it's too dark and I can't see!

    I *love* my bendable light and would love to have another one for my class machine. Yes, they are kinda pricey, but *so* worth it. I do think the extra holders are terribly overpriced and would just as soon buy another light.

    I got mine at the quilt show in Paducah. It was $49.99 which I thought was kinda high. However, after I got it home and put it on my machine, I think it's worth it.

    I was skeptical at first, but I got it, and OMG what a difference it makes! I don't think I could sew without it any more. Plus if I have to rip out a seam, or thread a hand needle, I just point the light where I need it. It is WELL worth the money!

    I just saw on Joann's a light-Mighty Bright Vusion Craft light for $25 and there is a 50% coupon to apply. Has anyone tried this light yet?

    I agree with others. I do like my bendable especially for applique and detail like that. I noticed that like Sidewinders, they are now coming down to a more reasonable price. I also wanted an Ott light but the prices are prohibitive! I found a table standing HD florescent for under $30.00. Love it!
