    I wanted to share with everyone. I've been looking at the new flex light
    shown in all the quilt magazines. But the price was blowing me away
    $49. Well I thinking this is not a new idea and I've seen something like
    it before. In walmart today looking for new quilt magazines. And guess
    what I find and only $9. Here it is in action.

    Cool, does it work good for you? And what department did you find it in?

    That really looks cool. Does it run on batteries.

    That's a good idea. I use reading lights a lot for reading. 8) Be sure and have a few spare batteries for it. The light goes dim fast in these. Most use the watch type batteries.

    LED lights are bright- don't look at it! I have a small pocket flashlight that works fantastic!

    Next trip to Wally World, I'll check this out!

    I found them in the book dept with magazines etc.

    If you don't have a place to clip it, its flat on the back I would think you
    could use some kind of sticky foam. I'd look in the picture hanging
    hardware dept or maybe velco...

    Texasquilts,

    My husband won a flex light that is suppose to fit on a grill to grill at night. Well, guess where it is, in my sewing room it works for me just great. It has a fastener of about 6 inches and I can tighten it down just about anywhere that I need it to be. Love it!
