Lighting While You Stitch

What kind of lighting do use to do your stitching.

I am finding incandescent lightbulbs harder to stich under and it doesn't provide me the light I need no matter what the wattage. I love sitting on the porch in the summer to stitch but I can only do that for a short time.

My father got me one of those "daylight" lights that you see advertised in magazines. It has been a godsend for my aging eyes!

I only stitch in daylight. My living room has lots of windows, so I always sit in there.

I was watching the Shopping Channel the other night and they had lights called Ott lights. I have never ordered anything from the shopping channel so I will look around in the stores. These lights give off a light similar to daylight, probably like the one Lionors, who posted above has.

Today was my last day in Toronto and if I had known there was a Needlework, Stitchery and Craft Event at the Convention Centre I would have gone. The last day is Sunday and I will be on the train back to Windsor.

First Street has a fairly large selection of daylight lamps. I have purchased several for different rooms in my house and love them for neelework and reading. They do not light a large area but are great for direct lighting over a limited area. Colors are very true and print is so much easier to read. Get the highest wattage available. It is worth the extra money.

I use this ionmax natural light desk lamp, DF3028 whenever i stitch, it has a sensor blue light which notifies us if the lighting in the room is not enough, so you just have to switch it on, its bendable to a lot of angles so easier for me to direct the light to what i'm doing. its brighter to compare with the other lights im using at home.
