I’ve been LED Inspired! {see my new lights}

This is a story with a happy ending. A story of a blog reader reaching out and helping a blogger. And now that blogger wants to pay it forward and help you!

A few weeks ago I wrote about my new Juki 2010Q (that I LOVE) and in my review I only had a few very minor complaints.  One of those was weird lighting. The led light on my sewing machine is very bright, but it is to the left of the needle, so it casts strange shadows like this:

It’s kind of annoying when I’m trying to sew at night and really annoying when I’m trying to take pictures for the blog. Lucky for me, I have a blog reader (named Kathy) who reached out and shared some photos with me of her lights from inspiredled.com.

Isn’t this awesome? I was so intrigued that I called the company and asked if I could order the exact same light kit that they sold Kathy. 

I chatted with a girl named Erica a bit and found out that their sewing machine LED lighting kit is only $30. Can you believe that? I asked her if I could share this with my blog readers, and a couple hours later she emailed me saying that her boss at Inspired LED wanted to giveaway 4 kits to my readers in this blog post. Yay!

I received my light kit just a few days later and it was so easy to install. I’m embedding a video down lower in this post, but here’s my kit for you to see:

Since my conversation with Erica, the folks at Inspired LED have updated this kit making it even more adjustable and perfect for any sewing machine. The LED strip is very long, meant for you to cut to fit your machine. And the cord from the end of the LED strip is longer too, so you can put the switch wherever you like.

In any event, here are a few pictures showing how I installed mine:


The switch, LED strip, and clips all have adhesive backings.

The switch, LED strip, and clips all have adhesive backings.

FYI: I removed the light strip and re-positioned it twice with no problem. Very impressed with how sticky that strip is.

And so bright! Here are some more photos that I took in my darkened sewing room without adjusting my camera settings in between shots:


No lights on.

Don’t you love it?

One unexpected benefit is now I can clean my sewing machine with it actually unplugged (like the manual suggests) because I have great lighting (even better than before) with the Inspired LED lights on. And here’s the installation video I promised:

By the way, I love it so much I put it on my list of the best sewing machines you can buy on Amazon.

Happy sewing!

  1. I’m in the garage with flouro lighting at night and a bit of daylight in the daytime. 🙂

  2. my sewing machine is in front of the window so i usually just use daylight during the day. I don’t often get the chance to sew at night so if i do it is just with the ordinary ceiling light

  3. I usually sew in the dining room because the craft table in the little office/craft room has too much crap—er, inspiration on it. I use the overhead light (ceiling fan) and the machine light.

    This kit looks awesome! Thanks for the chance!

    I have 4 OTT lights in my sewing room and I am constantly moving behind me, on the side everywhere so I can actually see. It is never quite right. I would be so grateful for these LED lights. Thank you

  5. Elisabetta says:

    I am international follower, so I guess this doesn’t fit me, but I have to say I love this idea, last summer I bought a led lamp for 10 euros at a Chinese stand, but this solution is much more professional an light is always at the right place you only have to turn it up if you need, love it so much!!!

  6. even an ott lite twisted down low over my needleplate is not giving me enough lighting to see …… this looks great ! [email protected]

  7. Karly Adams says:

    Lighting? Lighting?! I don’t have any. Well I guess I do, it’s called the sun!

  8. Jamie Doman says:

    This looks awesome!!!! I could really use this to help see what I am sewing. Definitely looking into it but it would be great to win one. I’d be so excited!!!!! [email protected]

  9. Sue Coles says:

    Another International follower here. What wonderful lighting. In my small sewing cupboard I have to sit in my own light so a kit like this would be out of this world.

  10. Janet Guidry says:

    I use an Ott light. Great giveaway, thanks.

  11. Oh how I would love to win one of these LED light kits. I have a beautiful new sewing room that I love dearly. The lighting however creates shadows at my machine just like yours did. I’ve been considering purchasing a table top LED light however I hate to give up the table top space. This light kit would solve this problem for me! Thanks for the opportunity to win it. I have my fingers crossed!!! [email protected]

  12. Michelle Tom says:

    Excellent idea! My lighting is a nasty fluorescent bulb that flickers and spits and hums and thinks about turning on about half an hour (okay, slight exaggeration) before it actually goes. Thanks for the great post 🙂

  13. Laurel Lloyd says:

    I have an Ott light near my machine and overhead lighting, but at night it’s still not enough. For the most part, I’ve stopped sewing during periods of darkness. This LED strip looks like a perfect solution!

  14. Renee Kunkel says:

    I love this and it’s about time that crafters started to get into the game of better lighting. I would love to enter for the giveaway but allow would love the information so I can also purchase these lights for my serger, a second machine that I have given my 12 year old daughter to start out on. I thought I was going to be locked into hunting stuff like this down by make and model (which would have been difficult since the second machine is 20 or so years old). On another note- this could be tweaked to allow my daughter better lighting for her music stand. 🙂

  15. DeeAnn Forrest says:

    Those lights look wonderful! I currently have overhead lighting, an LED lamp from IKEA, and another regular lamp. I, like others here, have given up sewing at night, and think this would be great!

  16. This is awesome! I just have a lamp and a ceiling fan light but my own shadow causes issues.

  17. Lori Bonzelaar says:

    Good morning,
    This LED light kit is great! I have 4lights set up in my sewing room, but at night I still struggle with sewing on my machine. This is something I would consider buying. Since I mostly sew in the evenings this would be great.

  18. cathy robillard says:

    Oh brother would I ever love to win this lighting kit. I love this idea. Win or not it is on my list of wants. I have 2 Ott lights and an overhead florescent light and still could use more lighting. great idea and it gives off great light just where you need it.

  19. A floor lamp unfortunately :/ and the poor light on my brother. I just ordered a juki 2010q though which finally shipped today. I would love a new light to go w my new machine 🙂

  20. I have the light from my Bernina, a small Ott light, and overhead lighting in my sewing room. Still I wish I had a third hand to hold a bright light directed on the sewing surface. This ingenious system would certainly solve the "I can’t REALLY see" problem!

  21. Looks like just what I need! I currently use overhead lighting with a small Ott light. This light sure would help my aging eyes!

  22. I have my Janome machine light, a small Ott light, and overhead lighting in my dining room.

  23. Laura Rieben says:

    I sew in my dining room. I have the same Juki (can’t get the needle threader to work for me!!). Love these little lights!

  24. OMG!!! I love it I have had such a problem with lighting…I have tried several things without much success, I have current an OTT light, a regular desk light, plus the over head light and still have problems with shadows 🙁

  25. OMG!!! I love it I have had such a problem with lighting…I have tried several things without much success, I have current an OTT light, a regular desk light, plus the over head light and still have problems with shadows 🙁 [email protected]

  26. Mary Jayne says:

    It looks like it is even easy enough for me to install! The lighting looks just like what I need to see the sewing area, too.

  27. Frog4shoes says:

    Who couldn’t use one of these!? It spreads the light all over, not concentrating over the the needle area. Thank you so much for bringing this to our attention and showing/telling us how easy to install.

  28. paulette reed says:

    Oh my light is so pitiful. Have tried a ott light behind the machine, but it is always in the way. What a brilliant idea!

  29. Lady Kayla says:

    The machine light; overhead "energy saving" bulb and an adjustable, large, craft lamp with built in magnifying glass – I use my quilting table (with machine lowered and table section replaced) for other crafts and find the lamp handy for both. Adjustable LED strips on my machine would be sooo useful. But as I am in the UK, I assume I would not be eligible for your competition. Good luck everyone.

  30. Paula Marshall says:

    I’ve tried everything to light my sewing machine… Giveaway or not, I’m getting that light kit!!!!! But I’d love to win it… [email protected]

  31. I have a Brother 1500 on a grace frame which has 3 extra light sources:
    1) a small clamp lamp, clamped to the grace frame carriage
    2) a LED stick that is held on to the throat with a mini bungie
    3) a small LED light with a hook that swivels, the hook is attached to my handle on the grace frame carriage
    So, I have to turn on 4 buttons to begin sewing, but at least I have light.
    My other brother has a Ott lite that is next to it.

  32. My daughters never understood why I would not sew at night until they began sewing for themselves. It is difficult to get the light just right. This is the perfect solution for that problem. 🙂

  33. katie stevens says:

    Wow that’s a fantastic idea! I have a janome horizon which has 4 led lights but also have a portable ott light that I also use.

  34. Oh unfortunately I have machine, overhead and sunshine! That kit is awesome and definitely getting one.

  35. I rely on the built-in light in my JanomeQE and daylight from a window behind my machine. But night sewing is a challenge. I have only two lamps (no overhead lights) in the room where I sew. I use a white sheet of paper behind the needle when I thread it (the auto threader is not reliable). I have early stage cataracts, so this lighting kit would be a godsend.

  36. Kathy Grant says:

    Oh my – I so need this – my old poor eyes would be so happy! I currently have the overhead light – which casts horrible shadows, the light on my machine and a craft light I got at a garage sale that helps some – if I don’t win, I going to get a set of these. Thanks for sharing!!!

  37. Rebecca Crookshanks says:

    The older I get, the more strained my eyes become. My sewing room is in an 1890 farm house with a single light in the center of the 8 X 10 room. The light is behind me, lending no help when sewing at the machine. My machine is a Bernina 1031 that is 20 years old and I love it, but the light is yellowish and does not nearly project enough light. This looks fabulous! I would need two, I have another newer machine that could use it also, it sits beneath a built in book case, so the lighting is poor there also, but the aesthetics are great! Thanks for sharing such a wonderful idea!!!

  38. I have a floor goose neck led lite i picked up at the hardware store. I angle that so i can see the bed. The rest of my lighting i regular ceiling for standard bed rooms. I told hubby that i need new lights so i could see better and he took of the shade and said there. So i have bare bulbs for lighting now, lol.

  39. Flávia Pais Gaspar says:

    As I sew mostly at night, I have a table top lamp that I move from my sewing machine to my serger (whenever I change working stations!), this would be great, meaning no more moving of the lamp.

  40. I usually use the overhead lighting in the room but will plug in a couple of table lamps for more lighting.

  41. Lou Haines says:

    This is fantastic! Thank you so much for sharing this product!

  42. Sheryl F. says:

    I have the light on my Bernina sewing machine and an ott lamp that I use. What a great light! Fan4may at aol dot com

  43. Nancy Lewis says:

    My sewing room was an afterthought when we built our house. It was the sloping side of the house, that while it was in the building stage showed empty space. We finished it and I had a sewing nook. Unfortunately, it is very tiny and almost no lighting, so this would be a wonderful eye saver for me. Thanks for the great giveaway!! nlewis at wildblue dot net

  44. I have a Ott floor light, but lights on the sewing machine – what a great idea.

  45. Janine Cordell says:

    That looks fantastic! I use the light on my Elna 7200, a ceiling light and my partners camping head torch, which I tell myself lends a sense of adventure to any evening quilting 🙂

  46. Libby Hunt says:

    I use an old desk lamp that ‘i constantly have to readjust. This is awesome! Thanks for the chance!

  47. Since I’ve started having some eye issues and need a lot more light than I used to, I started using an Ikea light that I bend over the machine and around to the right side of the needle. It gives pretty good light but it’s annoying in that I have to reposition the light and move it every time I change thread, change the needle, or need access to the machine for any reason. I love the way this lighting lights up your machine! Thanks for sharing 🙂 [email protected]

  48. Elaine Bagley-Mathewson says:

    Oh my gosh! How much do I need this! Thank you for the giveaway!

  49. Michele Timms says:

    My sewing station is in the basement where I have two extension lamps that are attached to my sewing table and to a bookshelf nearby. It isn’t the best but it’s my space and I make do! I have never seen a lighting like this LED system and based on the photos in your post, I’d say it makes an incredible difference. Thanks for the chance!

  50. I’m currently using just my machine light and overhead flourescent room lighting. Definately not the best. Looks like LED lighting is the way to go!!

  51. Karen Gard says:

    Love this!! I have a bunch of clip on lights so I can see! Makes my sewing table look futuristic :). [email protected]

  52. Tia Hegstad says:

    I bought 2 industrial type ceiling lights, but have found they are usually too bright, plus they buzz all the time.
    I sometimes use an LED head-light when I can’t stand the buzzing. This is handy because it goes where I go, whether it’s my sewing machine or the cutting table.
    This LED light looks very good, and I’d love to win one. I wonder if you could use the offcut LED strip bits and put them side by side to make it even brighter…?
    Kind regards,
    Tia.

  53. Grandma G says:

    I have an Ott light near my sewing machine, but since my sewing room is in the basement, any extra lighting would be great!

  54. This is awesome, I only use my sewing machine light and the chandelier light in the dining room. Not the best, but I make it work.

  55. Lee Defries says:

    I currently sew in my dining room and the lighting is not meant for crafting. So I do not sew much in the evening. Am currently using a rechargable light that is supposed to be used for power outages. Helps but not so much. Also, the eyes are getting old so the stress from poor lighting causes headaches. Hope you pick me.

  56. Regina Earl Arlauckas says:

    Lighting is challenging as I am in an attic -and the walls suck up most of the light. I have a 5 arm floor lamp with compact fluorescent aimed at my cutting and sewing areas, plus an IKEA mini LED gooseneck lamp curved up over my sewing machine to point at my stitching area (yeah – it gets in the way sometimes). I sew mostly from 9-11 pm after my son is in bed, so lighting is important!

  57. Sharon Lee Cason says:

    i have an old fashion bendable pole lamp.The lights are on the side and you adjust.The light is never in the right spot.I would love this LED se
    wing light!!!! Puts the light right where you need it.
    thanks!

  58. Currently I have the room light (its an apartment, so I can’t move that light – its weirdly positioned on the wall like a sconce), a floor lamp, plus the light from the sewing machine.

  59. Patricia Faye says:

    Like everyone else my sewing machine light requires that I have additional lights on or near my sewing machine & it still isn’t bright enough. I would love to win one of these lights. I’m sure LED Inspired will be overwhelmed with orders for their sewing machine kits in a few days! Thank you so much for sharing this great idea with your readers.

  60. Carey GypsyThread says:

    My sewing machine light just died. The lil’ LED bulb it came with was awesome, but now I have to order that part through a service tech. Yuck. I’m sooooo excited to read about this light kit! Whether I win or not, I will have that light kit attached to my machine before the end of this month.

  62. Linda Moore says:

    Wow! Awesome invention! Lighting in my sewing room is "ok"…but not great. I have overhead canned lighting which is adequate…and of course the light on my sewing machine.

    [email protected]

  63. These LED lights look amazing, and, the price is so reasonable! I currently just use the light on my Viking machine supplemented by an overhead light, and the light outside. Due to eye surgery I have issues seeing what I’m sewing much of the time, so winning one of these would be just wonderful. Thank you so much for the opportunity, and, thank you Inspired LED!

  64. Barbara Smith says:

    I have an ott lite that sits next to my machine. I’m constantly moving it around depending on the light from my windows. Would love to win a new one. This one sounds awesome!

    [email protected]

  65. I’ve just been thinking about lighting in my sewing room…prompted by a big clean up, an article in Threads magazine, and aging eyes. I currently have an overhead light, a couple of clip on desk lights, and an ornamental light that turns on with my iron–it is supposed to remind me to turn off my iron when I’m done. I’ve bookmarked the lighting web site. Thanks for sharing!

  66. I currently use as lighting my machine light (of course!) and the overhead light, which sounds like it should be great but is not. 😢 I could easily take a picture and send it to you, if you like. These lights would be awesome. I sure hope I win. I bet my sewing would even improve!

  67. Carrie P. says:

    I have a ceiling fan with a few lights attached to it. My sewing machine is near a window which is great during the day but then at night when I try to sew it is not the best light. My sewing machine has a pretty good light but having this light kit would be great. My sewing machine manual says the same thing about turning off the machine to clean it. Even in daylight it can be hard to see all the nooks and crannies. Thanks for a chance to win the lights.

  68. Kam Watson says:

    Currently I am using two Ott lights so I can see…..one over my right shoulder and the other desktop version to the left of my machine plus the machine lighting. I have seen the newest machines out there but I cannot see spending $8000 for a machine that does the same thing as mine except for better lighting. Might you be carrying these in the future so I can add them to all my machines? Thanks for the information.

  69. I sew in my guest room. This made me laugh because I realized that when I sew at night I turn on the overhead ceiling light and the lamps on the 2 bedside tables. That wasn’t enough light so I moved the 2nd bedside table lamp and put it on the corner my sewing table (where it takes up valuable space and still isn’t direct enough light.) So….then I moved a floor lamp from my basement next to my sewing table. I still can not see well enough to thread the needle and now I bump into that darned floor lamp every time I get up to walk to the ironing board. I debated finding another lamp but I don’t have any more room on my sewing table. It’s like I’m circled in lamps but I still can’t see. LOL

  70. Super idea!

  71. Linda Davis says:

    Hi. I have the not-so-sexy light that came with my 1970’s Kenmore, overhead lighting and a little black task lamp. 🙂

  72. LOVE this idea! My machine gets moved around from the basement to the upstairs because having good lighting is important. Right now I use a combination of fluorescent, incandescent, and Ott light.

    mcconkey (at) iserv (dot) net

  73. Pick me! Pick Me! Oh please pick me! I have various lights around my machines to try to give me enough light. It doesn’t work very well. I have a floor lamp off to the side, a goose neck lamp in the back, a desk lamp to the right, and still I feel like I’m constantly in the dark.

  74. I had been using one of the small stick on lights with the one little bulb that I got at Wal-Mart, but I lost the part that stuck to the machine, but it kept falling off anyway, so no great loss. This looks exactly what I need. Thanks for the info

    I was so happy to see your post as I am currently so frustrated with not being able to see on my machine. I am a snowbird who takes projects with me while away from the snow and here I am yesterday trying to see my work and the lights of my machine are in the back more so I cannot see well to thread the needle etc and had to resort to putting a desk lamp behind the machine so it shines thru to the front where I am working. I was just about giving up and thought I had to get a new machine. These lights are a gift from heven for me. My work area at home has better lighting but the machine lighting is not good. I would be so happy to have this and it would make me stop complaining to my hubby about how I can’t see . Thanks for doing all that leg work and the opportunity to have these lights.
    P.S. It is still snowing where I live so I will be staying in and sewing for awhile yet. Love your posts and look forward to seeing them everyday. Today was certainly a breath of fresh air about the lights. thanks for doing this ……..someone finally thought of how to fix the "bad light" issue.

  76. SStephanie R. says:

    The light on my machine and my sewing room lighting isn’t enough so I’ve been using an ott lite desk lamp, but to get the light where I need it, the lamp gets in the way of my material. Would love to have one of the Inspired LED kits for my machine! ;D

  77. Beth Griesbaum says:

    I love this! My regular light just went out on my Janome and I need to get to the store to get a new one. I don’t have any special lighting in my sewing room, but I do occasionally use my OTT Lite. Thanks for the giveaway! I will definately be looking up the inspired LED site!!

  78. I am using an Ott light, but still have shadows. I would love this kit. My fingers would feel so safe from the needle! Especially the one I sewed through since I couldn’t see as well as I needed. Thanks for the giveaway!

  81. Buffey Hauptmann says:

    Oh I so need these, right now I am using the ceiling fan light and a desk lamp when I sew. It’s the worst when I am trying to sew dark colors at night. This would be so helpful!

  82. After months of researching new sewing machines and bugging every gifted quilter I know with what machine to buy I am a new owner of the Juki 2010Q myself. This light kit is brilliant and will be so much better than what I am using now. I simply loaded the lighted ceiling fan in my sewing room with 100 watt bulbs to light my way. This is a wonderful alternative. Thank you so much for the information!

  83. Patti Myers says:

    Ott light – Love the idea of this new light!

  84. Tracie Amsden says:

    I’m currently using a little travel ott light but it’s always hard to have it in the correct place for light but keep it out of the way of the material. These are great and I’ll definitely be checking out their website. Thank you for sharing!

  86. Well, my "sewing room" is currently my dining room, so I have the light over my table and the light on my sewing machine only. Let’s just say that it is less than ideal! This light kit looks fantastic and easy to install. It would certainly "brighten my day" (sorry) to win! 🙂

  87. Deb Crivello says:

    Love this lighting, think I will order one for myself as I do a lot of sewing at night. Thanks for the information!

  88. Mrs Marlene L Collier says:

    I have several Ott-lites in my sewing room, but this LED would be a great addition, especially if I take my machine somewhere for a class or sew-in.

  89. Seems like lighting is an issue with a lot of people. Why don’t the manufacturers listen? Can you send all these posts to Janome, Brother, Baby Lock, Singer, etc.?
    I too, use a desk lamp to get some light in the right position. I have given up sewing at night all together. These lights seem like they would do the job!

  91. I have no special lighting in my sewing room, just and overhead fixture and an adjustable arm light from ikea. What a great item, I would LOVE it!

  92. I use a desk lamp if i need to sew at night as the lighting is so poor on my machine (Brand shall remain nameless, but they are not cheap). These led lighting strips are just the ticket! I would love to win one 🙂 violetgypsie @ gmail dot com

(Brand of sewing machine shall remain nameless, but they are not cheap). These led lighting strips are just the ticket! I think there is a huge market for these. I would love to win one 🙂

  94. Joan Lora says:

    I stretch two drafting table task lights close to my sewing machine bed.
    One is usually about three inches from my cheek! This LED light system looks great!

  95. Currently I sew often in the dining room and so I turn the lights on full and the sewing machine’s little light too.

  96. Wow, those lights would be perfect for two of my machines! Lighting in my sewing room is a real problem, especially in the evenings when I do most of my sewing. Thank you for sharing! [email protected]

  97. I use a desktop Ott light but am always having to reposition it so this product would be fantastic!

  98. My lighting is awful for my sewing room so I have 2 desk lights rigged up for lighting, still pretty bad. If I do not win one I am definitely going to order one of these, so cool!

    Love Sew Can She!

  99. Lesley Johnston says:

    i am new to sewing so i don’t really have any of the lighting i should be using – i need more!! in the morning i will have great sunshine in my new crafting room (WIP) but the afternoons and evenings i seriously need additional help.

  100. I have a fantastic Luxo swing arm lamp that was my husband’s grandmother’s (from the 1950’s). I like the ease of repositioning it, but even so, it doesn’t get you that direct downward lighting that you now have. Thanks for the chance to win.

  101. Kate Sacknoff says:

    Good lighting makes all the difference to me–this solution looks great! Thanks for the info.

  102. Oh my it would be great fir me. Since I still work I do most of my sewing at night. I was using q light from ikea, but it kept going out om me. Bought a new one and still no luck. This one your show would be perfect.

  103. Tami Peterson says:

    I am in the basement and there are can lights in the ceiling. They aren’t very bright so I also have a cheap ikea light, but it often goes off so I have to jiggle the cord. These lights look awesome!

    My Singer has an ok light but has the same shadow problem as your machine. I also have a table lamp that sits right behind on my work surface that I position in an attempt to illuminate my work. I wish i had more light to the right of the needle. This is a very brilliant (ha ha) solution to the problem!! Kudos!

  105. Elaine Taylor says:

    I am just using the lights from my machine and the room overhead light. I would love to have the Led light. Thanks for the info. I will order one for my other machine. They look like they will be great to have. My email is [email protected]

  106. I use the light on whichever machine I’m using, of course. If I’m using my Pfaff, then I have a nice Naturalight on a terrific flexible tensor-style neck that adjusts to wherever I need it. If I’m using my serger or vintage Viking … sigh … nada additional.

  107. I use a goose neck desk lamp. The problem with this is, in order to see where i am sewing (especially on dark fabric) the lamp head is in my way. my email [email protected]

  108. This product looks so awesome! I use my sewing machine light and a room light. The thing that I hate is that when I have the room light on anyone can see me from outside! I could really benefit from the LED light!

  109. Christine says:

    Wow – that is EXACTLY what I need! I am using a portable Ott Light set next to, and aimed at, my sewing machine. I am constantly knocking it over, and it still casts shadows no matter how I adjust the position. Thanks for providing a better solution! (Christine)

  110. What a clever and useful light kit…something even "I" can install! I would love to win. Thank you for sharing!
    Jane

  111. What a fabulous idea! Right now, I have several desk lamps scattered around my table, attempting to light the area. It would be so wonderful to not only have those lamps out of my way, but I am sure less costly to operate the LED strip, rather than the multiple desks lamps. Thank you very much for sharing this information and the opportunity to win.

  113. Lucy Pleticha Simons says:

    That is such a brilliant idea! My husband is always telling me that I need better light to sew, so I’d love to win these! Thanks! My email is lpleticha at gmail dot com.

  114. Sandy Fullmer says:

    I use the one light in my room and it could be much better. Can these be used on electronic sewing machines? [email protected]

  115. Shelley W. says:

    This is the best blog post ever! I have never been able to find good lighting. This will be great on my quilt retreats with my friends when there is never enough space for our machines and lights. Right now I have window, and overhead light and 3 other lights and it is never enough. I can never sew at night any more..Thank you for sharing this with us.

  116. Oh my goodness! What a difference!! I sew with an OTT floor lamp behind my right shoulder so that I can see better when I am quilting. One of these little lights would be a whole lot more convenient! Thanks for such a nice giveaway.

  117. Kyda Whitehead says:

    this would be great!!! I’ve just got an overhead light. most of the time if I need to clean out my machine or thread my serger I hold a little mini flashlight in my mouth.. 😉

  118. i’m currently using a clip on magnifying lens with leds to light my sewing area the plus side to using this is i can examine my work in great detail for tension on stitches and to do micro stipling.

  119. Judy Williams says:

    [email protected]

    What a visual delight it would be to have a light like that. Presently I have fluorescent ceiling light, a floor stand OTT light and of course the sewing machine light. I tried a small stick on adjustable light but too small. I never win anything and if I don’t I will surely buy one of these. Thank you so much for sharing with your readers.

  120. Lisa Morris says:

    Ha! My current light set up is very poor indeed! Just overheads and a craft lamp. Pick me! Pick me! 🙂
    [email protected]

  121. I currently use a light tower I got for my wedding. It’s perfect for the sewing room. I want to use this on my treadle, which has no lighting at all. I also want to get one for my singer spartan which also has no light!

  122. Linda Fritchen says:

    amazing light…definitely would help these aging eyes! So hard to sew when you cannot see and this is THE answer. Thank you

  123. I have the same machine and also have a dark room that could definitely benefit from better lighting. What a great idea a product!

  124. Anonymous says:

    Besides the ceiling light in my sewing room, I also have a light hanging over my sewing table that helps. These LED lights would be great to add to my machine>

  125. Rose Marie says:

    I don’t expect to win but this light would be a great help. I have the beginning of glaucoma and have trouble with dark colors and this light would be a big help. I have a Janome 6260, whose light has been changed twice. I do craft shows and sew to earn extra money, this light would help me make better items. Thanks

  126. Just a ceiling light right now as emy sewing machine light does not seem to be working any more the lights keep dying shortly after I put them in.

  127. Shannon Thomas says:

    I have th8s little led light fro.ikea that is just not working

  128. Sandy Burns Emme says:

    That is the neatest thing I’ve seen in ages. My sewing room is actually a dark corner of my living room. I use a floor lamp with a CFL bulb but it’s crazy hard to rip a seam from black fabric. Definitely will get one. Thanks so much for the info!

  129. Debra White says:

    I don’t have enough light on my machine – I’ve got it on the formal dining room table & just the chandelier for light.

  131. Mary Edgett Oakley says:

    I use an old ’70’s adjustable arm lamp for my serger, and the little lamp that came with my Juki industrial machine, both which need to be re-positioned when my machines go full throttle and the lights start tapping against the machines – very annoying!
    Thanks for "shedding some light" on this alternate, much better, light source! I’d love to win the lights, but if not, I’ll probably buy the kit anyway, for both machines!

  132. Lizabeth Cobb says:

    That light is great! Especially for "mature" eyes like mine. It seems I cannot get enough light. I have an ott light I move from machine to machine as I use them, overhead light and a hanging light over my computer. This light would be wonderful

  133. Jane Swanson says:

    My lighting is an old desk lamp with a broken switch (!). This is the most innovative solution I have ever seen. Hoping my Irish roots cause me to be a lucky winner! 🙂

  134. I have a cheap dollar store desk lamp & the very badly placed ceiling light as lighting in my sewing room

  135. Dinah McCall says:

    I have just a craft lamp. It helps but it still doesn’t light up the sewing machine base like I need it to. These lights will definitely do the trick! [email protected]

  136. Enid Mejias says:

    This would sure be handy for my singer Serger! I use a small flashlight in my mouth when threading and at the same time watching a YouTube singer serger video on my iPhone to refresh me how to thread it! This would save me the neck pain while holding flashlight in my mouth for sure!

  137. marie keller says:

    I have an ott light behind mine. Sometimes it gets in the way. Would really love this.

  138. I am using a clamp on desk style light….it’s ok.

  139. Tina Howell says:

    Now this is definitely a great find I have 4 machines and none of them in my opinion give super great lighting. At the moment I use my living room bay window for lighting and some lamps. But the lamps get in my way. This is definitely going on my wish list for all my machines. Thank you Tina H

  140. marla albertson says:

    my lighting is a ceiling light and sewing machine light which makes it also hard to sew at night.

  141. Barbara Thomas de Vries says:

    I don’t have a light in my sewing room. 🙁 I sew in my family room/dining room. The only light in here in the evening is over the dining room table, which is about 10 feet away from my sewing machine. If I want to sew it has to be done during the day when there’s sun streaming in from the sliding glass door. These lights will make a world of difference!!!!

  142. I have a Bendable Bright Light. I like lots of light, so sometimes I use my Ott lite, but it’s hard to position it so it’s not in the way. I’d love to have this kind of lighting.

  143. I have a 33 year old Bernina and use that lighting and an overhead light. My old eyes would love this

  144. I only use my room lights and the one actually on the machine. I have brought other table lamps nearby at times.

  145. How awesome! I have a task lamp from IKEA (soft light), my sewing machine’s led, and a small ott light on the other side. And my ceiling fan light. Not enough!!!! This light kit would be fantastic! Fernsfrocks at gmail dot com…

  146. Donna Lee says:

    I only have an overheard light in my sewing room and it is behind me. My machine is near a window but that’s not helpful at night or when it’s so hot that I need the blinds shut. With cataracts now, I am really struggling to see well when I see. This system looks great! Thank you for offering this giveway!

  147. Leah Glasscock-Sanders says:

    My lighting is horrid! One overhead fixture & a plug-in that also casts bad shadows. I have great sunlight in the summer, but nothing in our dark Alaskan winters. This is genius! I am so buying one, winner or not! Thank Erica for "showing us the light"! =D

  148. What a fabulous idea! My sewing room is up in the attic and I have a ceiling strip light for the room. I use a bendy goose neck desk light which I can twist to strange angles to closely light what I am sewing, especally for intricate detail, but it gets in the way of the fabric and I’m constantly having to move it around, and then re-position it, which is a pain. This is a wonderful solution and I will certainly buy one if I’m not lucky enough to win. I agree with Eileen that these lights should be available as standard on sewing machines – come on manufacturers, get your act together!
    Thanks so much for passing on this information.

  149. Alexandra Molina says:

    Natural light during the day, and a table lamp when it geta dark.

  150. I use daylight and ceiling lights in addition to my sewing machine light. It never seems to be quite enough especially in the evenings. Heidi

  151. sherryl dallmann says:

    I also have small lights on my machine, I think the cast is kind of yellow. These look to be fantastic! I like my area to be well lit when I sew. This looks like it would do the trick!

  152. I use an OttLite lamp. Like it. Thanks for the give-away chance. Karen K
    itskarenk at yahoo dot com

  153. Amy Blom Hopkins says:

    Right now I have to have an extra lamp a little bit over my machine, especially if I’m sewing at night. And that’s not counting the dining room lights since that’s where I have my sewing table. Those lights look wonderful!

  154. Sandra Woerner says:

    I can’t believe that I have been holding a small led flashlight in my mouth all these years when something like this was available. I love it, especially when age begins to effect your eyes! I also use the sewing machine light and have a portable lamp beside my machine.

    Those lights are awesome. I have an Otte light and a pendant light along with great natural light in the daytime. Nights is a bit more difficult. Wonderful giveaway.

  157. Seattlerain says:

    I use an IKEA lamp with a long, bendable neck but extra lighting is always welcome!

  158. OMG! I use a portable desktop OTT Lite in order to be able to see when I cleanmy machine! I need TWO of these!!! I can think of ENDLESS POSSIBILITIES for under counter lighting too.

  159. Sarah Bailey says:

    I use ottlite bright daylight bulbs I bought half price in standard floor lamps with swivel arms. (cause who’s gonna pay for an ottlite? seriously. But the bulbs really are awesome!) But I’d love to have a little strip like this to help out!

  160. Shirley Q says:

    I have used an Ottlite and other desk lamps in addition to the ceiling light and light on my sewing machine. None of them are very effective. There are still many dark areas, so I try to do most of my sewing during the daylight hours. An especially sunny day is always appreciated!

  161. Robin Hodges says:

    My sewing room is in a (sort of) attic/loft. There is a light on the ceiling fan and I also use a table top lamp that’s moved between the sewing machine and desk area.

  162. Geni Pickens says:

    The only lighting I have is my machine light which isn’t sufficient, so I have a task light I set behind my machine then I turn on all the lights in the kitchen. There are still shadows making it hard to see. This LED setup would fix all my problems and save on electricity as well! Thanks for the giveaway

  163. I have a small desk lamp that I use along with the overhead lights on the room. It seems that this LED light strip would cut the electricity bill. [email protected]

  164. This is great and would free up a lot of room in my case. I have vision problems anyway and need lots of light to sew by I have the light on my machine and I have 3 goose neck lamps with fluorescent bulbs surrounding the machine pointed at my work area and at times I still have trouble seeing the needle. This sounds like a lifesaver in my case

  165. I use an Ottlite, ceiling fan light and they are not enough lighting. I love to sew at night when everyone and tucked in and it’s a challange. I could use this awesome lighting

  166. Rita Detwiler says:

    I would LOVE to win this, as the light on my machine is similar to the one shown BEFORE the LED lighting was attached

  167. I have a top of the line Babylock Elissimo with "Stadium Lighting" it is not as bright as your LED light set.

  168. Stacey H. says:

    I use an Ottlite and I have the same sewing machine (which I love dearly).

  169. Holly Chewning says:

    The light in my sewing area is overhead fluorescent lighting.

  170. Donna Cutting says:

    I use an ott light, and two desk lamps that I can angle to see better. Those LED lights are great and don’t take up space like my lamps do.

  171. Me and my Juki would love this! I have lights everywhere and still struggle. This would be perfect!
    contentncm at yahoo dot com

  172. Deanna Plotts says:

    wow!!!!!!!! We can never have too much light. The older we get the harder it is to see. I will order one of these for every machine. (2). Please I would love to win. Thanks for the opportunity.

  173. Joan Lucas says:

    I currently have to sew in my dining room so I use the overhead lights and daylight through the windows to sew. It’s not quite bright enough at night so would love to win these LED lights.. They would help a lot!!

  175. I have a standing lamp with a big lamp on top and a smaller direct-able one on the side. It’s a big room though, and while its great during daytime, my room becomes pretty unusable at night without overhead lights!

  176. Suzan Alley says:

    I have been looking for a solution to my lighting problem. They have all been rather expensive. This is much more doable. Thanks for sharing!

  177. Chiara Aldridge says:

    I have my normal light in the room and a LED light strip above my sewing machine on an overhead desk thing. However, I would love one on my machine! Sometimes the LED strip that I have doesn’t light it in the right way.

  178. The overhead lights, a desk lamp, and the piddly machine light. This light set is a brilliant idea!

  179. Kim Quinter says:

    I have a floor lamp from Ikea that has both an uplight and a reading light. I have desk lamps on my tables, and then there’s the overhead light. I have a Janome Horizon 8900 and it has more lighting on it than I’ve ever had before, but it still isn’t as good as I think it could be. This gadget could be the answer!

  180. I’m so excited, I’ve been searching for something like this for a long time! My machine is 27 years old and the light is just dim and dull. I know with better lighting my quilting would be impressive and I wouldn’t have to frog so much ! [email protected]

    I have two desk lights. They help but are not perfect. Lighting is a problem on my Janome as well.

  183. Barbara Leggett Carr says:

    What a wonderful product! My eyesight isn’t the best and the lighting isn’t great on any of my machines. Currently I use one of those single LED lights with the bendable neck that I’ve attached with stick-on velcro. The LED strip sounds like a wonderful solution!

  184. I have a Bendable Bright Light but doesn’t light all the areas I need. It is more directed to a certain area. Would love to win the LED light kit. What a great add-on.
    hanks for the giveaway.

  185. Lois Sternquist Campbell says:

    What a wonderful accessory to any sewing machine!! I have to sew at my dining room table in order to get the light my old eyes need (from the nearby patio door). This would be a terrific addition for me. Thanks for the chance of winning these darling little lights.

  186. Erin Sobon Sundet says:

    I have the most terrible lighting in my sewing room. A lamp off the the side of the room and a dim overhead fan light. I would love to win some LEDs! Thanks for the chance!

  187. Hello Caroling, what a great idea, the lighting is perfect on your machine. The photos really sell the LED light set….The giveaway is perfect, I could really use these lights. I have my machines setup at a window for natural light, as there are no overhead lights… So when nighttime comes, I am done sewing…..I have tried adding lights around machines but I ended up hitting my head or tangled my roller chair on the cords…..

  188. I have a Bernina 630 with not enough light even though Bernina brags about the light on their sewing machines. I added an LED positional light that attaches to the sewing machine but it doesn’t stay in place and seems to get in my way. I have an Ott table lamp on my sewing table and also an adjustable overhead light with a magnifying glass. There is also a ceiling light in the room and two windows. All of this but there is not ENOUGH LIGHT!!!

  189. Brenda Maxwell says:

    I live in a mid-century townhouse and the lighting is horrid. I only have the light on my machine (also on the left side of the needle) and my overhead light. As I get older my night vision decreases and is not helped by a "baby" cataract in one eye. Because of this I have issues with sewing on dark fabrics and I do not sew at all in the evenings. I really could use one of these lights.

  190. What an ingenious idea! I currently have a pole lamp, and overhead and a desk lamp, and open as many blinds as I can on the windows. My older Kenmore only has the old style bulb to the left of the needle. These LED lights would be great! Thanks for sharing the opportunity to win them.

  191. Kimberlee Patton says:

    I just use my machine’s. Sometimes with drawn lines I try to use my OTT but it doesn’t help because it’s too bright & too bulky to get it in the right position. I end up with shadows or can’t see the lines from being washed out by the brightness. So frustrating, I’m so excited about these lights!! thanksalatte @ gmail.com

  192. Debbie McCrigler says:

    Love that idea for lighting the sewing area. Right now I have an ott light which gives good light but if you don’t position (usually in the way) it just right it makes shadows.

  193. Elizabeth M says:

    Those lights look terrific! This is a problem I have been struggling with for ages. It is so great to see a company appreciating what your blog can do for them also with this giveaway offer! Thanks so much for sharing this!

  194. Those are great! I just use a cheap lamp from Target. It does get in the way when FMQ, and I have almost knocked it off my table a few times. =)

  195. I have overhead lights and a desk lamp. The desk lamp is hard to get to shine on the actual sewing. These lights look great. Hope I win.

  196. Susanne Martin says:

    I use a SAD light I bought for light therapy over 20 years ago. I found that I needed more vitamin D and when I started taking it, I no longer needed the light. It gives off great light but is very large and cumbersome so is constantly in the way when I am trying to quilt.
    I would love to replace the light with something like this prize. Thank you for this blog and this chance to win one.

  197. Woah – I NEED this. I’m off to their site to check it out right now. You think the Juki 2010 lighting is bad, my 98Q is even worse!!!

  198. Sue Huber says:

    Caroline, thanks so much for helping to improve visibility! I have the dining room light overhead plus the sewing machine light that’s decent. Since I work during the day and sewing usually takes place in the evening, I don’t have natural light to help…and the eyes are not getting younger. Thanks again!

  199. Thanks for sharing this! I really need the enhanced lighting and am off to buy one. If I get lucky and win one, I have a serger that could use the lighting as well!!

  200. I have an old three way light stand that I put to the left of where I’m sewing. It helps but it’s not great. These LED lights seem great and I think that even if I don’t win one, I’ll be purchasing one of them!

  201. Nancy Parkinson says:

    This would be huge, I have a Janome which the lighting is good but could be so much better! I have an Ott Light on a shelf above my table that helps with all around lighting but this sounds so much better with it concentrated on the bed of your machine.

  202. As I am getting a little older
    light has become more import and daylight spectrum not yellow light
    right now I use a very iffy and old halogen lamp, it is on the temperamental side and works sporadically
    luckly my janome has reasonable task lighting at the needle
    but, I need more light everywhere

  203. valerie csmith says:

    Valerie csmith ([email protected]) I have just an overhead light in the sewing room, I am much older now (with trifocals) and could sure use this to be able to see better while sewing.

  205. I use the built in light on my Husqvarna 630, but it’s never enough.

  206. I use the built in light on my Brother. Definitely not bright enough

  207. Stephanie Nover says:

    What can I say? I’m over 40, have worn glasses since I was 10 and no matter how much I try, I can never get enough lighting for my crafting/sewing. This would be an absolute perfect solution for my troubles. Thanks for the opportunity giveaway!

  208. Margaret Schindler says:

    This is the best thing I have ever seen. I want one. Right now I use a clip on lamp to try to see better. Thanks for the chance to win one.

  209. Barb Dawson says:

    Great product! Thanks 4 sharing your tips! My "mature" eyes appreciate the help of my Ott lamp, but the light isn’t right up there, close & personal, like this little mighty light!

  210. Renee Pasich says:

    I use the built in light on my little Brother XR9000 plus an Ott light that I keep adjusting to get it "just right". But, something is always in the way to cast a shadow over my work. I would really love to win this light. It looks amazing! Thanks for the opportunity. [email protected]

  211. Elaine Phillips says:

    I have a nice mini directional led light attached to my machine, its nice BUT vibration throws it out of focus with every stitch. I went to the sight you recommended and already order the light….I am so excited. I spent $50 on the previous light so $30 is for clarity on my work is such a good price. Thank you for sharing.. Fran [email protected]

  214. I’ve been looking at all the different options for more lighting and this by far looks like the best! Thanks for the chance ~ fingers crossed!

  215. Wow that is cool…great for those of us who have a hard time seeing with just the sewing machine light…I recently bought a stick on lamp but wouldn’t you know it didn’t work in the area I needed….the lamp was flat and the area I wanted to stick it to was rounded…just didn’t work…but the led light could work in any area round or flat which makes it a winner in my book…..definitely will look into this…thanks for sharing

  216. Charlotte Noll says:

    My sewing machine light bulb stopped working so I’m waiting to get it repaired when I get it cleaned (after I finish a minky quilt :-). I use my Ott Light and was looking into lighting systems. Hope I win! [email protected]

  217. Very nice! My lighting isn’t great now – I have some white holiday lights hanging above my table + the machine light. I’d love some more lighting!

  218. Oh my, in addition to my very weak machine light, I have an Ottlite with the craft caddy near my machine, an overhead light, two floor lamps that both swivel (one with 2 heads and one with one that is near the ironing board) and several small magnifying Ottlites ( I have now lost count 6??!) . I saw this light on a blog post a while ago and wanted it then but lost the link. Despite 3 nice windows I am always adding light. This would be fabulous.

  219. KcKC in TX says:

    This is so very cool. I might have to order sets for each machine. Sergers, too.

  220. KC Miller says:

    This is so very cool. I might have to order sets for each machine. Sergers, too.

  221. I have an Ottlite lamp, daylight bulbs in the pot lights on the ceiling and still don’t have enough light for sewing at night or when it’s cloudy outside. These LED lights look great…thanks for the sweet giveaway!

  222. Marni Paredes says:

    Hey! I use 2 lamps and the light on the ceiling, still can’t see! I will order some of those. Very cool! Thanks!

  223. I have an OTT light I pull close to thread my machine, have been looking at these to buy. I like lots of lighting, I’ve been working on black a lot lately and it’s hard to see.

  224. Meriel Aho says:

    My sewing room is my (poorly lit) living room – just one overhead light nearby, and a lamp in the far corner! I would love some more light!

  225. I have an overhead light and 2 lamps nearby because I have the same problem you do with my Juki. Love my Juki – but the lighting is off. Thanks for sharing this fantastic solution!

  226. wow,that is so cool , i have just the regular machine light and my dining room overhead lights, in retrospect if i’d known i would be using the dining room as a sewing room i would have designed it all different

  227. This is great….. I love good lighting. Thanks for the giveaway

  228. Jan Newland says:

    The lighting on my machine is horrible also, these led lights are fantastic, I hope they ship to Canada . I would love to win one of these!! Thanks for the info.

    1. Jan, we do ship to Canada!

    I would love this so I can sew at night. I sit by the window and sew now.

  232. I have regular ceiling light bulbs…not great. One of my machines has decent lighting but my poor older machines are equipped with low lighting. I may need to buy a few sets of these. Thanks for opening my eyes…heh..

  233. florence LESAGE says:

    I use the built in light on my Brother and a desk light …
    thanks for the chance !

  234. I have my regular ceiling light fixture, the light on my sewing machine and then an ott-lite desk lamp. Lots of lighting, but still not very good at night time! This LED strip looks super cool!

  235. Brandyn Lauren Barksdale says:

    That little strip is FANTSTIC ~ THANKS for sharing! I turn on a lamp right beside my machine, but it often gives me a headache. /= I think this new LED will be coming to live w/ me soon!

  236. Susi Ripple says:

    I just the lighting that’s available on my sewing machine.

  237. Jeanne Jones says:

    Good lighting is a must. My 221 could use better lighting. So hoping I win!

  238. Lighting is so important when sewing. LED is so bright.

  239. alaskanmom2one says:

    I sew at my kitchen island and have my big 6 light dining chandler light on along with the 4 hanging lights above my island and of course my sewing machine light; which at times still isn’t enough. Would love to win this LED light.

  240. I saw this lighting in my local quilt shop, but your tutorial has sold me on it. I currently have Ott lights in my room with two being pointed on my machine needle, and I still have shadows.

  241. Chelle Chapman says:

    I agree w/ Sharon & Nancy, my Janome is alright but could be SEW much better for my "older" eyes. I used an Ott light behind my machine but the bulb just burned out 2 nites ago dern near bringing my evening sewing to a screeching HALT!! What an AWESOME prize & how cool for Inspired LED, offering your readers such a generous giveaway!! Thanks for this opportunity!! [email protected]

  242. Amy Eileen Koester says:

    My lighting needs to improve. I have CFL in the ceiling fixtures. They aren’t well positioned and swing at night is difficult.

  243. Susan N.Y. says:

    Wonderful Product, wonderful blog! I currently use an OTT light and because I have 2 machines in my "Mom Cave", I move it from machine to machine as needed. At 58 years old, the eye’s just are what they used to be and the close work makes that even more of a challenge, especially when I’m sewing all day and my eyes get tired. This would be an amazing addition to my favorite place in the house, my sewing space (: Keep up the good work on your blog, love it!

  244. Jane Coombs says:

    Recently I found a video on how to oil my machine, a 1955 Elna Supermatic. Three of the holes I had never seen before even though I have the manual. It is the poor lighting. The machine receives natural light in the daytime. I need more lighting. My BabyLock Evolution has great positioning. Thx for the giveaway.

  245. Jennifer Morningstar says:

    Oh my gosh! I have to order one of those (of course I’d rather win one). The lighting is so awful in my sewing space that I have resorted to dragging the office lamp from the desk over. It shines like a spotlight on one area and everything else is in shadow. I have all but given up sewing after dark.
    I’m sure that whomever you give the lights to will be very grateful! Thanks for your generosity.

  246. The Janome light could definitely use some help. Thanks for the opportunity to win this!

  247. Brenda Jerles says:

    Oh wow! I love this idea! That is one of the things i struggle with most in my sewing room is lighting. I have my machines in front of a window for natural light but there is a covered porch there so no direct light comes in except early mornings. I have two daylight lamps beside my machines but getting them angled to where I need the light is and issue and keeping them out of the way of the sewing that is going on.I sew, serge and machine embroider so need one for both my sewing machine and my embroidery machine. I love that all can be placed where you need it and out of the way of the embroidery arm on my embroidery machine.
    I love this light kit and if I don’t win one, I will eventually buy one or ask for one for my Birthday which is at the end of this month!
    I would soooo love to win one though! Who wouldn’t?!
    Brenda Jerles

  248. Lisa Roussel says:

    I use the machine light (of course), overhead lighting that is behind my seating at the machine, and two Ott lights. I have a standing floor lamp and a table model. Even with all this lighting, it seems my project is never as visible as I would like, especially when sewing at night!
    Thanks for the chance to win this lighting kit. It looks like it makes an amazing difference!
    roussel(dot)lisa(at)yahoo(dot)com

  249. ARMYWifeSews says:

    I would love to win this! My sewing room has no overhead lighting and the light coming from the window is not sufficient. I have a lamp but it does not put the light where I need it. Adding this kit to my Singer’s built in light would be awesome!

  250. My Janame has the same issue as your machine – the light is on the left end. I haven’t found a light that works well. Until now! This is just what I need! Hope I win one!

  251. I’ve been looking at lighting for my sewing room so this post is very timely – thanks for the great information and the chance to win a light kit!

  252. Stephanie Morales says:

    If the sun isn’t bright enough I use regular lights (these don’t always work the best especially at night, but that’s what I have). I would love, love, love to win. 😉

  253. I have an Ott Lite that helps but I still get shadows.

  254. OMG this is so fabulous. I can tell you that I only have the light that came with my sewing machine. I can not sew once the sun goes down because the house lights are so dim and I can’t improve the watts without replacing the fixtures. This would be so lovely to win. Thanks for the giveaway!

  255. Cara Halvorson says:

    OMG! That is brilliant! The only lighting I have is the dim little bulb on the machine and a single ceiling fixture up on a 10 foot ceiling that doesn’t put out hardly any light. This rig would solve my headache problem for sure lol.

  256. My 30 year old machine and 55 year old eyes could definitely benefit from better lighting!

  257. My 30 year old machine and 55 year old eyes could definitely benefit from better lighting!

  258. These lights look awesome! I have the one that hooks to the side of the machine and is adjustable, but I can still never get it just right… always end up with some sort of shadow! I would love one of these! pj(at)thedillins(dot)com

  259. Great lights. I can never have too much light and have pretty much given up on sewing after 8 pm

  260. Robin Whiting says:

    I us an OttLite that is bright but hard to position down where my sewing machine needle actually is!

  261. Okay, I NEED those lights! Right now I have a small gooseneck lamp placed behind my machine, and it’s doing okay but is really in my way when I’m working on big quilts, so it either has to be moved or risk getting knocked on the floor. Not fun! Those lights would make learning FMQ so much easier because I could actually SEE the stitches! Love it, thanks for sharing 🙂

  262. Jessica Weleski says:

    These lights look amazing! I have a sewing room, but it mostly just stores the fabric and supplies, and somehow I always wind up drifting to my dining room table to sew. So, I have some light that filters in through the window by day, but at night, it’s just the light from the ceiling fan and from my sewing machine…which is to say, not enough light 🙂

  263. I have halogen track lighting. Four tracks with 4 lights each. They put out a ton of heat but light up the room. I can point the light where I want it but it’s not close to my sewing machines. I tried the new CFL style bulbs, but they don’t put out enough light. It is always a struggle to see when I’m sewing.

  264. My 👀’s would love, love one of these fabulous lights…
    Right now it is nearly impossible for me to do any sewing when the sun goes down…I have table lamp style lighting, as you, the machines I own, cast shadows.

    If I am chosen to win one of these LED Inspired, I will be the "envy" of "Quilt Camp" and almost could count on a few of these ladies wanting to order a kit 😊

    Thanks for the opportunity to enter, also, enjoy your daily email.

  265. I have tried numerous lights… usually more than one at a time to get enough light! These LED lights look wonderful!

  266. I have searched and searched for lighting. This looks great! And easy to install. I’d love to win one! Thanks to Kathy for sharing!

  267. Among my sewing machines I have 3 vintage Singers all without any lights attached. I currently use the JANSO LED light from IKEA. I have the one with a base for my 28k handcrank which I can wrap around the machine and position where I want – this I move to my 99k when I want to use that, and a clip on one for my 27k treadle, which clips on to the side of it’s cabinet. I also use an adjustable table lamp with an LED bulb that can be angled and rised and lowered, but it is a bit cumbersome, and the overhead florescent lamp. The light doesn’t seem to be quite in the right place at times.

    It would be great to have the Inspired LED lights on at least one machine, and then move the JANSO one to shine from the left hand side!

  268. Debbie Hallamek says:

    Oh my gosh! I really need this! My sewing machine light is not very good. Thanks!
    gussek at Hotmail dot com

  269. I use the lights that came on my Janome and a little LED light that has a magnetic base so it sits in a magnetic bowl beside the machine. This would be much better!

  270. I use the OttLight. It folds down to turn it off and you open it to turn it on. This Insprited LED lighting system is AWESOME!!! doucettep (at) gmail (dot) com

  271. I have lights all over the house-a couple of Ott lights, a standing lamp, clip-ons and stick-ons. I’d love these for my Singer Fashionmate-love that machine, but the older I get, the less I see. thanks for the opportunity!

  272. My Singer is great except for the tiny LED light. To see better, I use an Ott Tulip light pointed at my machine. These lights would be so much better to travel with my machine.

  273. Catherine Laughton Williams says:

    Oh man, do I need this. I just sewed something wrong way around because I couldn’t see. I have overhead lighting, an Ikea task light that is always pointing in the wrong direction because I’m too lazy to move it with me, and of course, the lights on my machine(s), which while better than nothing, aren’t really up to my aging eyes’ needs.

  274. This looks like it will work much better than the $15 stick on light I bought that still doesn’t light up the work area enough!

  275. Do you have a button with HTML? I wanted to put one on my blog for Show Off Saturday, but couldn’t find one. Maybe I just didn’t see it?

  276. I have this exact machine and the exact lighting issue. Looks like a good solution for our Juki lightening woes. I’ve had extra lights set up near my machine because I just can’t see to sew with the poor quality machine lighting. The older model Juki that I sold to buy this model had great lighting in comparison. Thanks for the idea!

  277. thank you sooo much for saving my eyesight 🙂

  278. I only have the light in the ceiling and really that is not good enough, sometimes when I thread my machine I use a torch. This would be Perfect!

  279. As I’m getting older and my eyesight is not what it used to be, I tend to save my sewing for the day, when I can sit near the window and use the natural sunlight. What a difference those LED lights could make! I’d be able to enjoy my sewing at night as well. 🙂

  280. I have this exact machine and the exact lighting issue. Looks like a good solution for our Juki lightening woes. I’ve had extra OTT lights set up near my machine because I just can’t see to sew with the poor quality machine lighting. The older model Juki that I sold to buy this model had great lighting in comparison. Thanks for the idea!

  281. Peggy Gibbs says:

    I use the light that came with the machine and also one of those clip-on lights. Your light looks brighter than the two of them together.
    Thanks,

  283. I have a Pfaff that I love (except for the light). I don’t think that I have ever used a machine that gave good enough lighting!! I use an OTTLite & a clip on light. This system looks so much better. :o)

  284. I use the light that comes with my machine and a fluorescent light from my room. I’d say it’s pretty good lighting but, of course it would be better if I win this cool LED light!
    [email protected]

  285. Tsoniki Crazy Bull says:

    Oh that looks so great! I bought a little flex light to attach to my machine and it worked fine for a while. The battery keeps dying though so this looks like a much better option!

  286. The led light kit looks amazing! I am always looking for ways to brighten my sewing machine area! It would make sewing easier! Thanks for a chance to win.

  287. Kathy Reilly says:

    You are very welcome! I’m always happy to share cool stuff like this!

  288. Pamela Crane says:

    Wow-what a difference. I have those long arm lamps leaning over my machine now. I have two of them and they always fall down and shine the light away from the machine. I could use an upgrade!

  289. Jackie Tracy says:

    That light kit looks amazing! I have a small light on my machine, but it’s very dim. My craft room where I sew has one overhead light that’s also super dim, and I have no natural light in the room!

  290. For lighting, I have the light on my machine ( not very good) and a lamp in the room. This LED light would be great to use!

  291. How exciting! I always need more light when I sew. I’m using an Ott light that sits on my extended table right now, but your light would be so great because it is right there on the machine itself. As I get older, my eyes need more and more light it seems.

  292. How cool! Those lights really make a difference. I use a clip on lamp. I keep changing the angle so that I don’t get blinded by the light. Thanks for the chance to win.

  293. I don not even attempt to sew at night! I have my machine in front of a window and use an adjustible Ott light! Thanks for the contest, and I will go ahead and order a set.

  294. Suzanne Lavoie says:

    I have 3 small task lights and a small velcro’d on LED light. I need this!

  295. Dale Martin says:

    Dale

    I use a clip on light from ikea..it helps but tends to get in my way while I work..this kit looks wonderful!

  296. Just a quick FYI….if you live in the Phoenix area, the store is located in Tempe and the sewing machine lights can be purchased there.

  297. What a great way to see what I am doing . I would love to win a set of these.

  298. Anonymous says:

    I have a halogen light in the fan above my sewing machine. When more light is needed, I drag out the Ott floor lamp.

    My message did not go with my email.

  299. Karen McClung says:

    I have a Ott floor lamp. You can never have enough light when sewing!!! Would love this on my
    sewing machine!
    Thanks for the giveaway, [email protected]

  300. I would love to have help for these aging eyes.

    I must also say I am delighted to have found your blog and the information shared here.

  301. Jeanette B says:

    I have overhead lighting from the ceiling fan to sew by, and I supplement it with an Ott lamp. These Led’s would be a wonderful upgrade!!
    [email protected]

  302. I use the light on my Babylock (which is several years old so the light isn’t great!) as well as an Ott floor lamp. Shadows are always an issue. This is a great gizmo!

  303. Annette Canonica says:

    I need this light! No way can I sew at night ( or on a cloudy day) with my current set up. Thank you Sew Can She and Inspired LED for the opportunity.

  304. Glenda K Beckham says:

    I do my sewing at the kitchen table which is against the wall on one side. The light from the kitchen is more behind me, no help there so I have a lamp,minus the shade, on the table behind my machine, not much help there either, so I mainly rely on the light in my machine. These would be great on my machine. Oh what I wouldn’t give for a sewing room with lots of lighting. Thank you for posting and a thank you to Kathy too. I love your blog and follow it everyday. [email protected] [email protected]. Good luck everyone!

  305. Gayle Hill says:

    I have a lot of trouble seeing my machine. I have a desk lamp and a small led light which does help a bit, but this looks fabulous and would make life so much easier, not having to keep moving the lights around. I will be checking these out for sure.

  306. Christine DuPuis says:

    I use the old lighting on my 11 year old Viking. I have an overhead light and an Ott light nearby. It is not nearly enough for this Grandmother to see enough to sew – sometimes not even in the daylight!
    I would love this light.
    Chris D.

  307. Mary White says:

    I have a small desktop Ott light that I like, but it doesn’t give off enough light in the right direction, and I’m constantly knocking it over with my projects. It also gives off lots of shadows. I also use a wall mounted light, but, again, I get to many shadows. sigh
    The LED lights seem like a great solution to my shadow problems!!

  308. I use natural sunlight and very the very inadequate light on my Bernina. LED lighting is THE BEST…so bright! It would be such a blessing to win an LED sewing machine light kit!

  309. Pamela Casey says:

    I have a bright ceiling light fixture! When that is not enough, I use my portable OTT light that is LED. Thank you for the great product info. and installing tutorial! I will pass it along!

  310. I use a small Ott light, but it’s not bright enough at night. I think the leds look fantastic!

  311. Sandy Allen says:

    I have a floor lamp that I position over my machine in order to see more clearly and brighten up the area. It gets in the way sometimes, so this would be a welcome change to my area!

    Sandy A

  312. Andrea Teal says:

    I am currently using a desktop lamp and a floor lamp. Needless to say I could use more light! Thanks for the opportunity. [email protected]

  313. This is the perfect idea for lighting a sewing room. The lamp that I use gets so hot it I have to use a fan to cool down. I could really use one of these. [email protected]

  314. Mardi Gruber says:

    I am using a bendover desk lamp that gets too hot, plus nearby window daylight which does not provide the results this awesome light kit would offer. After all my years of sewing, this looks like a must-have! Wow!
    [email protected]

  315. I do not currently have a sewing room, so it’s the light that I have on my machine (turns on with my machine) and the one from my living room.

    How well do you think these will travel?

    Contact me via my blog – https://aprilfire.blogspot.ca. I do not want my email address for all to see!

  316. Catherine Silling says:

    this looks like a wonderful light, I would consider buying one… your photos of the Juki and new light tells the story wonderfully.Catherine Silling ([email protected])

  317. Catherine Silling says:

    I forgot to mention lighting I currently use in sewing room: daylight I have pretty good lighting with large sliding glass door behind my sewing chair, evening I use the stand up ott light and find it still needs to be adjusted several times a session. Also, my Bernina has a pretty good light, but in evening it never feels "enough"…[email protected]

  318. Diana Mattoni says:

    Wow, that light looks amazing! We just moved in to a new home last weekend and my studio has NO lighting whatsoever. No overhead light or anything. Luckily we have an Ikea close by and I plan on getting some cheap floor lamps until we can install a ceiling fan/light.

  319. Kathy Soman says:

    I also have the juki 2010 q, I love it but haven’t added anything else. Would love to try this kit.

  320. Judy Boots says:

    I have an Ott Light floor lamp and an Ott Light desk light. This LED system looks like it would work wonderfully!

  321. Awesome light! I share sewing machines with a few ladies in a sewing group. We are currently making and embroidering baby quilts for our church. We are all having difficulty with the current lighting. Threading the needle, cleaning the machine or just plain seeing what we are sewing. We range from 50 to 90 years old. I am one of the younger ones and know I personally would love to see better. Loved your blog. [email protected]

  322. Shelley Michel says:

    I have a chandelier with 6 lights and just my sewing machine light. I NEED this! It looks awesome!!

  323. Delonia M Quinones says:

    I use a gooseneck desk lamp that casts weird shadows also. I would love to win the LED light.

  324. Rhonda Dunn says:

    This would "lighten" my life! I have to sew during the day, open the blinds, and position the Ott and reposition the Ott, and did I mention reposition the Ott!

  325. Stacie Lantrip says:

    That is so cool! I have a clamp light on my sewing table to shine under the throat of my machine, because of the same lighting issue you have. I love going to retreats, but the lighting is even worse in the huge sewing room. I was thinking of this the other night when I was sewing, and wondering if something like this exists! Thanks so much for sharing!! And Kathy for speaking up!! I love your blog and all the sewing tips and inspirations you devote to your followers!

  326. Seriously cool. Mom and I both have the Brother PQ-1500s. Well I got a light for mine in the beginning, but she didn’t get one. This would be awesome for her and I may replace the one I got. I’ll be adding this to the list for Mother’s Day for sure.

  327. Judith Martinez says:

    This is wonderful! I currently use the sewing machine light and sunlight because the fluorescent fixture in my basement is broken. I’m waiting on the landlord to come and fix it. I sometimes grab a desk lamp and set it up when there isn’t enough sun.

  328. I use the sewing machine light, an overhead light and sometimes a light positioned behind and to the right of the machine and shining on the right side of the presser foot. I think those LED lights are the BOMB!! and would love to install them on my machine.

  329. Christine Slaughter says:

    I have awkward lighting all over the place… It sucks! Some odd lightbar above my head that hubby found at a garage sale, and a desk lamp. I’d love one of these sets!

  330. rita burhans says:

    wow, i would love to have one of those LED light kits — these tired, old eyes need all the help they can get, especially at night when there are some many shadows lucking! Thanks for this opportunity!
    [email protected]

  331. Woohoo! Happy Birthday to me(almost)…I just ordered 3…2 for sewing/ embroidery machines and one for long arm…. I’m so-o-o-o looking forward to not feeling like I am living in the Insane Clown Car, and thinking I was going blind to boot…it’s a lighting thing!
    I am going to be able to see the black thread on the black & white quilt…the micro stippling without fear of sewing my nose to the quilt…and not trying to find 3.5 glasses ( instead of 2.0) at the Dollar store!
    I’m thinking one needed for the headboard, so I don’t loose the warm spot and strategic pillow placement when reading…Thanks Caroline ( and mystery Kathy) for sharing… Quilters Rock!

  332. Courtney S says:

    My lighting is horrible! I have a wall sconce on the wall across from my table, and a small lamp that sits on the nearby dresser. Then I have the light that came on my Baby lock. I could totally use this lighting system!!
    Thanks for the opportunity to win!

  333. Gina Snyder says:

    Oh, I would love to have those lights! I have scar damage on my Optic Nerves so lighting is very important to me! Currently I have a daylight lamp and 2 ott lights sitting right by my machine.

    Gina Snyder

  334. Lol, just what I need. I am finally admitting defeat to my declining eye sight! No longer am I blaming the sewing machine globes, they aren’t faulty, I am! 😉

  335. Dianne Nanney says:

    God bless this company for it’s inspired lighting solution! I positon my machine in a north window and thus can only sew on sunny days!! [email protected]

  336. More light is just what I need in my sewing area. The light on my sewing machine is getting
    dimmer with age, just like the owner. The Ott light just does not illuminate the harp of the
    machine as much as I would like. These little leds would do the task.

  337. Jackie Terando McClement says:

    What a fabulous find!!! Thank you Kathy for getting the word out to Caroline!!! With any luck I will soon be able to stop knocking over my Ott Lite when turning large pieces! Crossing my fingers big time!
    Jackie

  338. My lighting is "lame" sewing machine lighting and a west facing window on my sewing table!!

  339. Kelly Crosby says:

    A quilting teacher once told me "one light for each decade." I believe it! I have floor lamps and adjustable lamps everywhere, but these lights seem so much better. Thanks for the chance to win!

  340. Georgia Olds says:

    I use a clip on Ott light that is awkwardly in the way, a table lamp and the machine light. Something SO much smaller would be EXCELLENT!

  341. Jerry Frobom says:

    With better lighting, threading the needle will be a snap! Out with the Ott!–[email protected]

  342. Cynthia Wolfe says:

    I use the machine light and an Ott that bends. Unfortunately, the Ott gets in the way….would love to have one of these lights!

  343. narelle lowcock says:

    Iuse my machone light & a couple of desk lamps which I regularly knock over. Love these new LED lights. 🙂

  344. Wow! I want! I have a studio with lots of natural light but hardly sew at night because I can’t see well enough.

  345. Lorna McMahon says:

    Thanks so much for sharing this enlightening post, Caroline! And for offering this generous giveaway. I have two 100 watt light bulbs mounted in a ceiling fixture.

  346. I just have a bunch of random lamps and one OTT light for night time when I really want to match colors correctly!

  347. Sue Augusto Mariotti says:

    Very cool and I have that Juki. Thank you for putting a spot light on this fine product. It’s been illuminating.

  348. I currently use a room overhead light(it is the ceiling-mounted kind that is put in when you build a house. My sewing machine(Brother quilter’s edition) has a light underneath but-like your Juki- it is completely inefficient. My email is [email protected]

  349. Juanita Mullins says:

    Looks like a fabulous product and just what I need! I am using the machine’s light along with the overhead ceiling fan light (not very bright). I have a lamp, too, but it puts off so much heat I have to have the ceiling fan on also. This product would be perfect for these older eyes. One of the worst things about getting older is the lessening eyesight for closeup work!

  350. There can never be enough light in my sewing area, I use 4 light sources! My sewing machine is kept in a closet, as this is easy to close up in my sewing room / office. The LED Light kit is just the solution I need to get the light on my sewing projects! Thank you for sharing!

  351. Lou Bolte says:

    Boy O Boy would I enjoy these lights. I have a clip on table light behind my machine and even sometimes it’s not enough light to really see good on cloudy days. Thanks ever so much for offering this gift.

  352. I have a Janome 6600 which I love but the light also casts a stupid shadow due to the needle threader. I have had an IKEA light clamped on to my handle on the top but it jiggles when I run the machine so I have to adjust it every few rows of seams. Ugh. I currently have an LED flashlight hanging from the presser foot knob. It covers a window on my machine’s tower. I have an ott lamp on the back, which is in the way when I want to put a quilt through the harp.

    I love to sew and do get annoyed when the process gets frustrating due to poor lighting. I’d love to try this strip! Thank you for the chance to win.

    I love to sew and do get annoyed when the process gets frustrating due to poor lighting. I’d love to try this strip! Thank you for the chance to win.

    What a fab idea! I have a small bendy led reading light but can never get it close enough to make much difference – I squint a lot!!!

  355. darlene macdonald says:

    I use three lights. The light on machine is worthless. I have one attached to sewing table. Then I pull table under light in bedroom to be brighter still. Thank you for giveaway!!!!! Enjoy the brightness 😎

  356. Alison Siener Brown says:

    I have terrible lighting at my sewing table in the basement! I have tried a number of standing lamps, but they cast unhelpful shadows on my work. I have not found a good solution yet, but this LED lighting kit looks like it just might do the trick!

  357. I’m a new fan on your blog. Where can I get the lights. It will be awesome for my mega quilter. As I mostly sew at night after work.

  358. I use my sewing machine light and an overhead OTT light. Still not enough. These lights look great!

  359. Sherry Crotinger says:

    I use the sewing machine light + a bendable led light that does not stay where I need it. This would excellent solution with the light problem. I have wet macular degeneration in my right eye. Leaving me with the need to have all the light I can get.

  360. Sandra Perkins says:

    OMGsh!!!!! This is exactly what I need! I currently have the can ceiling lights, which also cast shadows. As my eyes are growing dimmer, I need the extra light and have been wondering how I can solve my dilemma. I sure hope I win this. Thank you for this opportunity!
    Sandra

  361. Oh wow!! these are great! I’ve been looking for something like this! right now i have a couple of the Ott lights positioned around my machine and it’s so not working…

    thanks for this!! susan

  362. I need this!! My lighting is so bad and I sew mostly after dinner! How do I win a set?

  363. I just got the same machine and that is one of my issues as well. I need to order this ASAP! Thank you so much for sharing!!

  364. I use a tabletop Ott light when I sew in the evening to supplement my machine’s light and the recessed ceiling lights. These LED lights look amazing and would be a vast improvement!

  365. I currently use a ceiling light and I could usr more light.

  366. Sharon Carbine says:

    My sewing machine desperately needs LED lights. I have trouble seeing what I sew. Currently, I am using an OttLite task light. It is very awkward and does not provide adequate light.

  367. I use only the overhead light and the light on my machine. It’s actually pretty terrible. Because of that, I try to sew during the day to get the glorious natural light.

  368. Weeeee!!! This is exactly what I need too! I have a desk lamp which I’m constantly moving around and a really annoying overhead light in the ceiling fan

  369. Pauline Perry says:

    I use ceiling lights and the light from my sewing machine – I have a Bernina and an Elna Excellence. I sew during the day next to a window with the Bernina but the Elna is not by the window. In the evening I use the ceiling light which is not great. It would be great to have better lighting and thanks for the chance to win some!

  370. Ana Rivas says:

    I open the blinds and turn on my OttLite task light. It’s still not enough as it doesn’t cover the area I need to be lit correctly.

  371. As I get older…I am finding that I need more light to do everything. In fact, I can never have too much light. Thank you for sharing…this is one area where I could really use LED light!

  372. Brooke Adams says:

    My machine light has been broken for forever. It is not easily fixed (I think I had to mail my machine back in!), so I have tried several do-it-yourself light fixes. None have been great. I just bought an Ikea repositionable LED desk lamp that I’m hoping will help, but this solution seems so perfect and elegant. Very much appeals to my engineering background!

  373. Mary Peake says:

    What a great light! Right now I use the machine light plus a standing floor lamp that has a flexible neck. It’s positioned just over my right shoulder which really limits my movement at my machine!

  374. Wow, that is awesome! I currently have the light on my Juki TL98-Q, two torchiere lights, an overhead light and a directional light in my sewing room. We live in a house set in a bunch of trees, so we don’t get much sunlight in the house, particularly in the summer when the trees are fully leafed out. Lighting has always been a problem for me and this looks like a great solution! Thanks to inspired LED for offering such a great giveaway!!

    1. Oh and I just imagined how much easier this would make my long arm quilting too! I may need two sets!!!!

  375. margaret smeeding says:

    This has got to be one of the best inventions EVER !! I currently use my Ott table top light but its not enough this will be awesome!

  376. I to most of my sewing at night. This will work grear. I have already shared this with my sewing friends. Thanks for sharing.

  377. Carolyn Coxon says:

    I have an Ottlite floor lamp over my machine and I have tried the small lights which stick to the side of the machine. Neither of these are really adequate. The LED light sounds perfect!

  378. Love those lights…not sure if it’s too late win!!!

  379. what a great idea. I use natural light during the day as my sewing room is quite sunny. In the late afternoon I put the main overhead light on but it’s not very bright at all

  380. This light looks great! I use an overhead light in my sewing room and that’s all. Maybe more light will improve my quilting! 🙂 Thanks for the chance to win, and thanks for your inspiring blog!

  381. So AWESOME!!! Oh my gosh — I sew in an unfinished basement down with my kids’ toys. My lighting consists of some bare bulbs up on the ceiling and a small table lamp on my sewing table. It’s totally ghetto. : )

  382. Lynn Hedlund says:

    OHHHHHHH That is So So wonderful. LIGHT Wonderful LIGHT! I complained about the lighting in my sewing room (there was NONE) so my husband surprised me with 3 overhead florescent lighting fixtures that are AWFUL! I still can’t see what I’m sewing and don’t want to knock him off his "I’ll fix it" pedestal. This is the BEST thing I’ve seen in a long, long time!

  384. laura sweet says:

    This lighting is amazing! I’ve never seen it before. The only lighting I use when I sew is from the bulb in my sewing machine and the canned lighting in our ceiling. Sometimes I get a bit of a morning’s natural light from the window. You can find me at [email protected] if I’m lucky enough to win! Thanks 🙂 -Laura

  385. Would love this!!!!! In addition to my machine light I use the room overhead and another on the left side of my machine…..

  386. I normally avoid sewing at night for lack of light. I have a couple work shop lights set up in my craft room but it never seems to be enough. This is a terrific idea. Thanks for sharing- I’ll have to get me a couple for my machines.

  387. Best thing I’ve seen since peanut butter. Great giveaway! Thanks for a chance.

  388. I rarely sew at night because the lighting I have sucks big time. I would love to win this. Thanks for the chance.

  389. I currently only have the lighting on my Janome MC 9000 but I’m not sure this lighting would be compatible with aussie power sources, so if I’m lucky enough to win, I’d love to gift it to a friend in the USA if it’s not.

    Thanks for the opportunity to win though, lighting seems to be an issue all round with most machines…I actually got gifted an old school Singer machine recently and it actually has the light to the right of the needle not the left….and it throws great light onto the work area…why on earth did they go and change things out over the years…who needs to see the left side of their work? Not me, I need to be able to see where my work is flowing under the presser foot…doesn’t everyone? lol

    Hugs

  390. Theresa Brooks says:

    I have an old desk lamp with an Ott lightbulb in it behind my machine. It kind of gets in the way, but I just don’t have enough light without it! I would love to win one of these!

  391. I have an ott light that I can’t get in a good position to really help. This looks like the answer!

  392. I only ever have the time to sew at night when the kids are in bed and so I use the dining room lights and another lamp. Maybe if I could see better, I’d be sewing more! These LED lights look brilliant!

  393. Christa Dunn says:

    I have the most awful lighting in my sewing room! I’ve yet to convince my hubby to replace the small chandelier which was installed when we purchased our home. This silly thing is lit by three small chandelier bulbs (max of 25 watt!). It’s just awful! I need better lighting very badly! So thanks for the opportunity to win some!

  394. Wow! What a product! And I would love to win but….if that fails I will buy it. I hope saying that doesn’t decrease my chances….giggle! Anyway, I just moved from a house where I had had custom lights installed in my sewing room. The lights weren’t custom, the positioning that I asked for from the electrician was. And the room was bright with a big window. I’ve since divorced, moved to a cute, vintage, single wide at the beach and I have a tiny room with only, at this time, one wall mounted light and one window. I do not sew when it gets dark as the light I have does not allow me, even with a 1/4 foot, to be completely accurate. So would I love to win this? You betcha! Keeping my fingers crossed!

  395. Afton Warrick says:

    I use a combination of dome lights in the ceiling, a little Ott-light that sits off to the side, and my sewing machine’s lights.

  396. This is amazing! I think with the newer light bulbs more of us are realizing that our lighting is not as bright. I get frustrated when I have to wait for a light bulb to warm up to get a decent light and then I still don’t think they are as bright as the good old-fashioned light bulbs. I was having eye problems and had to have surgery on both my eyes last November. I thought that was all my problem with vision – I still think some of it is lighting, lighting, lighting. What a great gift the company! I thought at most they had sent one!

  397. I have an Ott floor lamp beside one sewing table but I could still use more light on my sewing machine. My other machine on a second sewing table is lit by a florescent ceiling light. Thanks for the giveaway.

  398. Lyndadian says:

    I am so excited about the possibility of winning these fantastic lights! I have a large sewing room with 3 windows and I have track spots above two of them and a center of the room ceiling light. It’s just not enough. I have four machines that desperately need better lighting. I have been looking and looking for lighting that enlightens the sewing area without taking up valuable space on the table top. This is it !!!!

  399. Shirley Cree says:

    currently just the tiny bulb in the sewing machine …. and a wall lamp that doesn’t quite reach all the crevices…. what a great product…..

  400. Dana Norris says:

    In my sewing room I have a table lamp, a floor lamp, the light in the ceiling and the light on my machine. This is an awesome product! I love what you can do with it and how you can cut it to make it the right length.

  401. My sewing machine is a quilter’s special that features 3 lights, but I still have to use it to sew or quilt only in the daytime. I know exactly what you mean about weird shadows. This sounds like an amazing light to help solve these problems. xx debbie

  402. I am SO GLAD that I checked my email tonight, after a full day of shopping at one of my favorite fabric shops, Pucky Huddle in Candor, NY. A great sale (-25% off entire purchase) was being held and I came home tired but satisfied. 🙂 I almost passed up this post.
    Back to your post: this led light kit looks like a dream come true! Currently all of the florescent ceiling lights in my studio (30 tubes) are full-spectrum, which floods the room with light, BUT I need more light aimed on my sewing machine. So I have a couple of bright lights aimed at the needle, but it hasn’t been possible (at least that’s what I thought until tonight) to focus lighting in the area to the right of the needle.
    This system is tops!! Thanks for the opportunity to win one! I especially want to thank you for bringing this info to your readers!

  403. Ruth Pratt says:

    These lights are amazing! Being a quilter sometimes requires an all-night session or two to get a project completed for someone special. Instead on having the whole sewing room lit up, these LED lights would be just perfect! of course, this means less sleep for me, but so many more beautiful quilts!

  404. I currently use a stand lamp to supplement the ceiling lighting. Unfortunately I also have weird shadows!!

  405. Jo Stires says:

    I have a number of lights and they all cast shadows. I’d love to have this light.

  406. Jennifer G says:

    These lights look great. I mostly use natural light from the window near my machine. Unfortunately that does not help at night. Thanks for the giveaway!

  407. Carmen Nuland says:

    My craft room has a low-light ceiling fixture, a small desk lamp on my craft table, but most of the light on my sewing table comes from my sewing machine. I need this! Thanks for the chance to win

  408. I would love to win these lights. I have resigned myself to only sewing with the brightest of natural light even though I have an overhead light, the machine light and a clip on light. Just doesn’t seem to be enough. These lights look awesome. Thanks for the chance to win.

  409. LeeAnne Curtis says:

    Being 65 with bad eyesight, I always need all the light I can get! Right now around the sewing machine, I have a table lamp, floor stand lamp, clip on lamp and the sewing machine lamp. These look like they would do the trick for us older sewers with bad eyes. I would love to win these!!

  410. Cathi Thomas says:

    I have overhead fluorescent lighting.

  411. Hi! Thanks to you and Inspire.com for this wonderful giveaway! I have wanted one of these lights for a long time, but did not know where to urchins e! I need at least 3 of these for my machines! I currently usea pole lamp with one Ott like bulb in it, shines over my shoulder. Not great…
    Take care, Lesle

  412. Joy Roberge says:

    Joy
    I have been teaching quilting for the last 19 years in classrooms with very poor lighting. I would love to have this LED light on my machine and be able to offer it to all my students. This would make my birthday even more special!

  413. Sandi K. Hagen says:

    Love this light!

  414. Darcy Brown says:

    Oh I Sooooooo need one of them. I live in an RV and when the motorcycle is not in the garage it becomes my sewing/craft room. The lighting is terrible in there and other difficult to position any alternate lighting. I will wait to order my own because I’m feeling lucky!!!!!

  415. Kathy Wilkey says:

    Awesome light kit. Would love to add this to my sewing machine!
