And I was in such a hurry to get the slide show posted the other day before running out to class that I forgot to post the info on this thing!
I love my students – they are a wealth of knowledge, inspiration, and ideas!
And of course they have hubbies that help with gadgets too :c)
One of our quilters came with this little magnetic gadget on the side of her machine and I came over right away to see what this goodie was all about.
Vintage machines are all metal. They have no computerized parts. Do NOT put a magnet on a computerized machine!
However, if you find a flashlight that has no magnets, perhaps a bit of velcro could hold it there instead of magnets?
This is a little LED flash light, found at Harbor Frieght
((Or we think so, according to what our quilter thought she remembered her DH saying))
They come in colors like this blue one – or you can go classic chrome like this:
Push the button on the end of the flash light and the light is VERY bright!
The flash light has magnets on the side…and it simply clings itself to the metal faceplate of our Quilter’s Featherweight.
I don’t know what the price is.
I haven’t been to a Harbor Freight to find one. I’m not 100% sure that he even GOT them at Harbor Freight, but they have to be available at a place like that ---they run on batteries. I don’t know how long batteries will last, but when the power was out at her house our Quilter was able to sew and sew and sew on her treadle machine for many hours with just this simple solution.
If you happen to go find one at Harbor Freight or anywhere else, would you drop me a line on the price and location? I’ll add the info here!
We quilters love gadgets, and this is one I’d like in my travel tool box!
