A Fabulous Chance Light up Your World

I have a little news that is going to make many of you VERY happy...at least I think so :)  

Last February I was given the opportunity to host a giveaway for the Inspired Lighting Sewing Machine Light Kit. Inspired Lighting sent me a light kit and said that if I liked it great, and if not, well, that was okay too. As it turned out, I LOVED the light kit and was surprised by how much light the light strip put out.

The kit comes with an LED light strip that has an adhesive backing, and all the tools you need to attach the strip to your machine.


Simply place the light strip along the inside of the machine and then wrap the cord around to the side. All of the pieces have an adhesive backing, so installation is super easy. The kit even comes with its own on/off switch.


Before I installed the light strip, I plugged it in just to see how bright the strip would be and I was very surprised by how much light the narrow strip gives off.


Here's a before and after picture. The picture on the left is before and the right, after. A BIG difference.




Now for the GREAT news...

Inspired Lighting is giving away 5, yes 5! light kits to 5 lucky winners!!!

The last give away was only open to those of you living here in the United States, but this time around, Inspired Lighting has opened the give away to all who live in the U.S. and Canada!!! 

If you would like a chance to win one of the fabulous light kits for your sewing machine,

1.You must be a follower of this blog.
2. Leave a message on this post and let me know how you follow, i.e. email, Bloglovin, Feedly, etc.  
3. You must live in the United States or Canada.

The winners will be announced on September 1, 2016. 

I used my first light kit on my little Baby Lock Anna which I use for travel. Inspired Lighting is sending me another light kit to install on my machine that I use at home, so I will be able to do a video of the installation and give you a real life look at how it lights up my world :)  

Good Luck!!!

A big Thank You to Inspired Lighting for giving me this opportunity to once again share a great product.

  132. Hello there! I follow you on bloglovin. This post came at a great time: I was just lamenting about lighting. The bulb on the machine is good for threading the needle, but doesn't put enough light on the project and the machine itself casts a shadow from the overhead light. Great to know this product exists and glad you are able to offer the chances to win one.

    ReplyDelete
  133. Oh, this sounds so helpful!! I follow you with bloglovin, always happy to see a new post.

  134. I follow you on bloglovin' I really need more light!!

  135. I follow you on bloglovin, and the light strip is a wonderful idea, especially since I just had cataract surgery and really would benefit from more light.I enjoy your articles.

  136. I admit, I don't use a blog aggregator, and I rarely check my email. I depend on your facebook posts to let me know when you have a new blog post up. Sewing black on black, the extra lighting comes in handy.
