A couple of weeks ago while visiting with the Mississippi Valley Quilters in Moline, IL --- I noticed that Jo and Kelli had some AWESOME lighting on their machines --- in places I’ve never seen lighting before!
You know, the “new” machines come with LED lighting and visibility is SO important….
There are bendable little lights you can buy that will shine right on where the needle action is --- but have you ever felt like the rest of the throat space of your machine was in semi-shadow?
Jo told me she’d tried out these lights from Ecolux Lighting, and she gave me a card --- and before I was even able to contact THEM, they contacted me!
Okay—the really cool thing for me is that they are from BOISE, IDAHO ((GO BRONCOS!!)) Where I used to live ---and having family that is still in the Boise area makes me very proud to claim Idaho as a former home, and I’m always pumped when someone-from-somewhere-I-know comes up with something SO SUCCESSFUL!
So I get this email from Kim asking me if I would like to TRY their product ---absolutely!
The box was here waiting when I got in the door from Rhode Island --- and I didn’t get to try it out until last evening, but let me tell you what a difference this makes to my machines – especially vintage babies like Barbie above!
((As if you couldn’t see it already?))
This is the light bar, turned on --- in the 6 LED size! 100,000 hours of life on the light. This will last me a long time!
This is the smaller 3 LED light bar, perfect for featherweight sized machines…..the bulbs do NOT get hot --- and I think it would be really hard to break one…they are in soft pliable plastic ---
And better yet, the cords are interchangeable ----you can buy “Just the light bulb part” for more than one machine……and just transfer the cord and the on/off switch between the machines…
On/off switch – easy thumb button!
The plug-in part just connects here so you can use it with another machine. Or of something DOES go wrong with your light, you just replace the light part, not the whole cord/switch/plug in.
I think you’ll be seeing a lot of happy quilters using these lights! Check out the website at http://ecoluxlighting.com and tell Kim that Bonnie sent you!
Shine, Barbie, Shine!
Oh Yeah, and don’t forget to say “GO BRONCOS!!” :cD
