AH! Good point. I should mention that I hand quilt; I can see machine quilters may not find the LED strip helpful. What I do have is failing eyesight and the strip helps tremendously with that. ...

THIS is exactly how I feel, too. It's how I used to feel about ceramics until my hands got too arthritic to work the clay. It's taken some time but I have finally come to feel this way about my...
