Adjust the Placement to Fit Your Sewing Machine!

While working at the machine, do you find yourself struggling to see as well as you’d like to? While the machine’s built-in light is often enough, sometimes extra light makes things go more smoothly, especially if you’re not 19 any more.

The Quilting Marine was struggling this problem and found an inexpensive and effective solution. The Wenice Sewing Machine LED light strip (find it here) sheds light all across the underside of the horizontal arm of the machine, lighting up the entire bed.

The photo above shows the machine with its standard light, while the one below shows light levels with the light strip on. What a nice improvement!

The following video shows the light in action.

The bendable light strip has a sticky back so it can be affixed to the machine, can be cut at intervals to fit, and has a dimmer switch for adjusting light levels. Since it’s LED, the strip will provide light for thousands of hours of sewing.

Play with the placement of the strip to put light right where you need it. Because it bends, most likely you can apply the strip so the end sends light down toward the needle. Nice!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article).
