Violet Beam-n-Read Personal Light : See Better in Dim Lighting

Beam n Read in Violet Color

The Violet Beam-n-Read Personal Light is excellent for the crafter. Imagine doing embroidery, stitching, applique, beading, knitting, crocheting or any other personal task, that might need a dedicated source of light. The Beam-n-Read personal light does not need an outlet for electricity or contorting yourself in order to have what you are working on under the light. The Beam n Read is lightweight and hangs around your neck on an adjustable strap. The Beam n Read light shines right where you want it without fiddling. Choose either 3 LEDs that light up or 6, your choice. In addition, the 4 AA  batteries, (not supplied) will power the 3 LEDs for up to 100 hours and 6 LEDs for up to 50 hours.

That’s a lot of light!!!

Violet Beam-n-Read Personal Light is also excellent for lighting when the power fails, for camping in the tent or reading in the car when traveling after dark.  Is there a woodworker, (or other craftsmen) in the family, these will help relieve the shadows when doing intricate work.

The light provides a wide beam to give a broad swath of light. The lights come packaged with two filters (red and orange), to filter out the energizing blue light. Flip the lights up for on, press flat for off, no accidental switches to flip.

Also available in black

2019 Online Quilters Meet & Greet

2019 Online Quilters Meet and Greet
Visit blogs that may be new to you or old friends already on the 2019 Quilters Meet and Greet Blog Hop.

Welcome to I Have A Notion stop of the 2019 Online Quilters Meet & Greet. Benita of Victoriana Quilt Designs surprised me with the invitation to join this year, and I am flattered, to say the least! I found the 2018 Quilters Meet and Greet last year and discovered several new to me blogs.

A Little Bit About Me

Beth Hunter
Beth Hunter

I have been quilting for more than 30 years, and before that, it was garments and craft sewing. My quilting began with hand piecing and hand quilting, but now I do most of my work by machine. Most of what I create are original designs and created most often by’Playing the What If’ game. We have just recently moved from in-town to the country in Kentucky. We have a little 10-acre farm, complete with a barn, a chicken coop, a shop, a house, and a POND! The local cows and cats outnumber the neighbors, which is just what we wanted.

My Favorite Quilt- “today”

Today my favorite quilt is the “Chicken Dance” quilt. I like it because it makes me smile. Making it was so much fun and believe it or not it is a scrap quilt. I started it in 2009… with the chickens, (but moving to South Africa kind of got in the way of quilting!), and eventually finished it in 2013. The most difficult part was finding a setting layout for the chicken blocks, after that the rest was easy! Nobody said quilts had to be made fast. The Chicken Dance is soon to be a pattern! It is almost as much fun on the back as it is on the front. And yes the front is shadowing through… the back. I little miscommunication with the quilter, it should have been a double batt, a cotton batting plus a wool batting.

What is “I Have A Notion™”

“I Have A Notion” is an online sewing notions and tools store. Sourcing quality products to help you create and stitch. I purchased I Have A Notion™ in 2016, from a friend (Kelly Jackson) and moved it from Ohio to Kentucky. The store has undergone several changes and improvements over the last couple of years. Adding new products and creating a new web site. I should complete some web chores that I still need to do… but hey… I like to create with fiber, not just pixels.

Best Products

One of the goals at “I Have A Notion™” is to carry top-notch useful products to support sewing and quilting enthusiasts. Offering the top of the line products and often, a lesser-known brand, if both are good… then probably both are stocked. Before adding new products, I test for features or benefits or if they meet the claims made. If they make the cut, I add them to the stock. Some of the best NEW tools I have found: are the Misting Spray Bottles for using at your pressing station, along with a Wool Pressing Mat. Both will change your quilt pressing routine!

The Newest Addition

Is the Beam and Read Personal Light in Violet. If you do handwork and need a little better lighting on the project at hand. Then this is the light for you. Originally developed for individuals with vision difficulties it has proven to be one of the best handsfree work lights ever! I have started using one whenever I am doing handwork on the go.
