This is one of those times when I say to myself…..why.  Why didn’t I do this earlier!

I am really blind.  Light blind.  Dark places are not my friend.

This little kit — the LED lighting kit by inspired led is the best thing on the planet right now!

Let me show it off to you and help you decide to get one.  No more waiting!

No more dark blind!

Let the light in…….and sew!

LED Sewing Machine Lighting Kit

Where you can find it:  Amazon (free shipping for prime)

How it works….you take it out of the box, put the little black clips on the machine, slide the light strip in place, plug into the switch and lastly- plug the switch in.

Super simple!  I had this done in less than 5 minutes.

What I love– it’s bright, but not blinding.  You can still see everything after sewing without white spots burned into your eyes. 🙂

You can adjust the length depending on your own machine.

You can see the reflection of the led lights on the machine plate….note: I do NOT have the machine turned on. The light is only from the light strip.

The little clips are sticky taped to your machine so you can easily remove them if you need.

The strip of light just slips into the clips, so moving your machine or transporting it is simple- just unclip the strip and walk away with the machine.

This is what it looks like from underneath and in the back of the machine.  I placed my strip just inside the arched arm.

I didn’t trim my strip so the extra lights just hang out at the bottom of the machine.  Lights up the backside.

I couldn’t be happier!!

Simple switch in the back on the bottom.  Again, it’s just sticky tape there so it can be moved later if needed.

    I did it. I just ordered the LED light kit with the expansion kit. After having cataract surgery I need more light. Hoping this will work for me.

    On one of my old stand-by machines the LED light was flickering. The replacement parts were back ordered-6 weeks! I am not patient. I ordered this lighting arrangement mentioned here. There was an offer to get two of these so I did. Thought my serger could use a brightener. My daughter liked the looks of this arrangement so I ordered her a double set. I have removed and moved the light strips Many times. I have finally gotten it where I don’t have a bright point of light hitting my eyes when sewing. I gotta tell ya. That tape strip stuff stays pretty darn sticky.

  • Becky

    that tape strip is soooo sticky! I was thinking in the future to maybe use washi tape…that way I could reposition it if needed.

  • Becky

    I didn’t cut mine…just did a lengthy wrap where I wanted it. If your machine was bigger you could do that, smaller, you might want to cut it. Play around with it and some tape at first and then decide.
