Best Hand-Quilting Light and Best Travel Quilt Ruler!

I’ve got two new quilting products that I just bought and I just love!   The first is a light that will make your hand sewing so much easier to see.  The second is a travel quilt ruler that I am taking with me to all of my quilt retreats!
Beam N Read LED 6 Deluxe Hands Free Light; Extra Wide & Extra Bright Light from 6 LEDs Plus Clip-on Orange and Red Relaxation Filters

I use this light for absolutely all of my hand quilting and embroidery work.  I was having trouble with poor lighting and the need for reading glasses.  As I begin to use reading glasses, I have discovered that really good lighting makes all the difference. Without this light I have a trouble seeing to sew and thread needles. No problem threading needles with this Beam and Read LED light!

Fold Away Ruler

I can’t wait to take my new Fold-Away Quilters Ruler to my next quilt retreat.  I always worry that I am going to bend and break my ruler.  I have a chip out of the corner of my old ruler where I banged it on a door as I was bringing in all of m sewing equipment to the retreat. That won’t happen again with my new fold-away ruler!  I can’t wait to show my friends at the retreat. I suspect they are all going to want one!
