Beam N Read Giveaway
Recently, I was asked if I would like to review the Beam N Read Hands Free Light. Initially, I thought I would decline, thinking that I didn't really have a use for it. I don't have trouble seeing while doing handwork (yet!) so I didn't feel like I needed the light and optional magnifying glass. Sure, I might use it to read in bed but that had nothing to do with my sewing blog. But then I thought of the perfect use!
When I have a quilt done and need to hand sew the binding, I declare it a movie night. When we renovated our office about a year ago, my husband installed a movie screen. He likes to watch movies with all the lights off. I always want to turn on a light so that I can see. We compromise by turning on a light in the back half of the room so it's still dark for the movie but I can hardly see. While sewing the binding on the runner that I just showed you, I tried the Beam N Read. It was very lightweight and comfortable to wear around my neck. I used the 3 LED setting rather than the 6 and had plenty of light to see by and it didn't bother my husband in the least! As you can see, the light is very focused.
If you would like to try a Beam N Read, I have been given permission to give one away to a lucky winner. To enter, please just leave a comment here and let me know how you plan to use the light. I will draw a winner on Tuesday, June 12th in the evening.
