Let There Be Light!

My sewing space occupies the former living/dining room in our home. With the exception of a butt-ugly chandelier in the dining area, there are no additional built-in light sources. None. Nada. Zilch. During the day it is not an issue - I have plenty of daylight available.

The lack of light has always been a challenge when I want to use the long-arm machine in the evenings after work. I have a couple of LED gooseneck lights over the machine itself and a old floor lamp to use, but it is never enough! This past week, I had three quilts to get done for family members plus I had to work during the day. I needed a better light source desperately!

I did a little thinking and came up with a way to suspend two shop lights over my quilting frame. $100 later, I have light and lots of it!


Needless to say, I got the quilts done and shipped off to my mother and sister so they can finish them up. Mission accomplished!
