It's been a couple months since I first told you about the Inspired LED sewing machine lights. The company (Inspired LED) was putting together a kit and they sent me some to test and giveaway. I love my lights so much and love sewing at night too since having enough light is never a problem anymore. You can find the kit available for purchase here.
Well, Inspired LED has since improved the Sewing Machine Light Kit so they sent me another one to 'test.' The new led light strip is even longer (25'') to accommodate long-arm sewing machines too. There are little markings about every inch and a half where you can cut it to the exact size that you need. I took off the first set and installed this new set on my mid-arm Juki TL2010Q.
My other sewing machine (the Bernina 1530) has the first light kit now. Doesn't she look happy? In case you were wondering, the adhesive on the light strip itself is not meant to be moved around like this, but I didn't have any problems taking the strip down and sticking it to a different machine.
The adhesive that holds the little clips and the switch, however, cannot be removed and re-installed. The clips and switch are held in place with those sticky foam pads. I had to scrape them off with my fingernails.
Luckily I already had some double sided foam sticky tape from an office supply store and I used those to re-stick the clips and switch to my Bernina. It was not a problem at all but I thought I'd advise you.
I know have the LED light switch on the side of my Juki, right underneath the power switch. So handy.
And I have SO. MUCH. LIGHT. You can read the spec sheet here.
Now for the exciting stuff... Inspired LED wants to giveaway 4 more kits! Enter to win by leaving a comment below telling me how often you sew at night (when you really need this kit, lol!). On Monday night May 26th I'll let random.org choose four winners. Be sure to enter your email address so I can contact you.
Good luck and happy sewing!
