Day 3….Needful things for quilters

3 days

Day 3….Light Table…

Now this needful tool is essential for laying out our quilt blocks and all kinds of tracing.

The one I have in my studio is this 12″x 18″ model..225375.  It is a very nice size for quilting projects.  I know some of you have to layout blocks exactly like the layout…well if I just described you this is your must have tool to help with exact placement when laying out your fusible web shapes and drawing your stitching lines that you might have to stem stitch or words you may have to trace and want to trace them exact…I am referring to wool on cotton here…you can see through wool if it is light but not black….The light table is available here on sale now until the end of the year… Click here: Light Table…by now we all should know that I may not have one in stock for all right away…so just keep that in mind again…

Now for yesterday’s winner…we had 45 people at our party last night so Comment #45 is the winner!!!  Judy you win a 5″ scissors!!!!    Please send me your address!!

Judy GalliganDecember 21, 2012 at 12:54 pm

Every since I heard you talk about these scissors I have lusted after them, A treat they will have to be
The 5 inch would be wonderful for my wool. Appliqué.

I hope you are all busy doing you Christmas stuff and not waiting for this post…lol…I had a great time last night and I am paying for it today…but I guess I will be good now until Jake and Lauren’s Wedding…It was a great stress relief and here is a pic of Santa and his Elf who had some gifts for Nice and Naughty people!!!IMG_8430

    This would be a great gift for myself – guess I’d better drop some strong hints.

  3. December 22, 2012 at 7:56 pm

    Another thing to put on my “have to get” list. Guess I didnt give Santa enought time. Will be sorry to see your suggestions end but have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!

  4. December 22, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Always wanted a light box. I have been using the plastic extension table for my sewing machine with a light under and it is such a pain. Nice picture guys!!

  5. December 22, 2012 at 7:58 pm

    Your ideas are the best. The notions are all must have. Thanks for sharing with us.

    I think i’ll be ordering a lightbox! The windows are hard to use when it is so dreary.

    I have a smaller one my dad made for my mom and I years ago… A large one sure would be nice!! Oh, how my list keeps growing…

  8. December 22, 2012 at 7:59 pm

    A light box would be wonderful!! I sure hope Santa is reading all about these super great Needful things because I need them ALL! Have a wonderful Christmas and all the best in the New Year!

    I am saving up for one of these. I just started applique. Right now my light box is my back door during the daylight hours. My kids think it’s hilarious to stand on the other side and make faces at me while I am tracing. Needless to say it takes longer because I feel the need to chase them around the yard laughing all the time! Merry Christmas!

  10. December 22, 2012 at 8:01 pm

    It would sure beat the window on a gray day like today.

    With each day comes a new addition to my wish list! Though I did order the Rowenta Travel Iron…Merry Christmas to me! Thank you for sharing ideas, tools & tips with us. Merry Christmas to you & your family….

    I just broke my very flimsy light table, and was going to purchase another one, but couldn’t find one substantial enough. How I need this one. The one I had for years was very small and had a short cord, so was always falling over! Merry Christmas to all!

  13. 13 Ann
    December 22, 2012 at 8:12 pm

    Love the light box. It makes applique so much easier.

  14. December 22, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    What a great light box. Looks like i need to save my pennies so I can purchase one.

  15. 15 Janet B
    December 22, 2012 at 8:17 pm

    Having a light box like this would be really helpful when tracing out patterns. This one is much bigger than the one I use. Should have put it on my Santa’s list. Merry Christmas everyone.

  16. 16 Kay Brand
    December 22, 2012 at 8:20 pm

    Might just need one of these. Love wool applique !

  17. December 22, 2012 at 8:21 pm

    Love wool applique. A light table would be very helpful.

    A light table is definitely on my gotta have list!

  20. 20 Carol Eberhardt
    December 22, 2012 at 8:24 pm

    Once upon a time I had a small light box and then my son went to college to major in animation and the light table was required … off it went 100 miles away. I got another light table some time later, just before my second son went to college to major in printmaking… and a light table was on the school supply list. So 2 light tables later maybe I can get a really BIG light table! Thanks for all the great types. We are all going to miss our daily message from Lisa after Monday!

    I love my light box, but it is too small. This one would be great.

  22. 22 Skye
    December 22, 2012 at 8:38 pm

    Yes, I agree, a light box is a needful thing. Mine is smaller, though. I think that was the only size I could buy lo, those many moons ago.

    • 23 Carol Gpuveia
      December 22, 2012 at 9:22 pm

      Every one of your needful things have been wonderful suggestions. Currently I am using my sewing room window for tracing.

  23. 24 Cindi P.
    December 22, 2012 at 8:40 pm

    I think I definitely need a light box for all my Primitive Gatherings patterns that I have been buying. What a great idea! Thanks for all the hints!

  24. 25 scrapperdeb
    December 22, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    To be honest, I’d just never thought about a lightbox, but it certainly looks like a needful item!

  25. 26 Susan
    December 22, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    This light table is amazing, what a treat not to have to tape patterns and fabric to my patio door-I can only trace this way in daylight-

  26. 27 Cecilia
    December 22, 2012 at 8:43 pm

    I have a smaller one, but could really use a larger one for marking my larger blocks.

  27. 28 Sharon nejedlo
    December 22, 2012 at 8:46 pm

    This is the second item you mentioned that I have…yay! I still NEED all of the others and I am making my wish list from my favorite on…

    I have a small light box and it is very handy. By the way I made Nick’s casserole and it was a hit at my house.
    Everyone enjoyed it.

  30. 31 Rhonda
    December 22, 2012 at 8:57 pm

    This is also on my list. I have a small one to carry around but for all my tracing on all my primative gatherings BOM this would be the cats you know what!!

  31. 32 Roxanne
    December 22, 2012 at 9:00 pm

    This is definitely something I could use, I love all these ideas to make my life easier, My list keeps growing!

    You are a wonderful resource! Your light box looks like it can handle so much! Love the Santa & Elf photo!

    Nice light box! Sounds like a very good idea. Cute santa and elf you’ve got there!!!

  34. 35 Michelle S.
    December 22, 2012 at 9:06 pm

    I have a small one but love the size of this one. Now, I still need a tool that helps me remember to trace the reverse. Thanks, Michelle S.

  35. 36 Gina
    December 22, 2012 at 9:10 pm

    Wow, I never knew there was a larger sized light box. These hints have been so useful!

  36. 37 Marian Baidacoff
    December 22, 2012 at 9:12 pm

    Wow – a 12 by 18 inch surface would be wonderful, mine is much smaller. Having good tools makes everything so much easier!

    December 22, 2012 at 9:13 pm

    Sounds like the party was a huge success! I use my light table a lot, I’m one of those that I really like my things to line up. My table is much smaller, the bigger one would be awesome! Hope you are feeling better tonight! Lol!

    Nice light box. Another great quilt studio tool!

  39. 40 Fran Bianchi
    December 22, 2012 at 9:18 pm

    This light table is a very needful thing. I too trace on the patio door until the sun goes down. There are several things on this list I could use.

  40. 41 Lori Genther
    December 22, 2012 at 9:19 pm

    I’ve never used a real light box. I usually just make do. This looks like a great one!!

  41. 42 Robin Burton
    December 22, 2012 at 9:23 pm

    This light table would be a great addition to my quilting room. Just might have to put it on my wish list to my hubby!

  42. 43 Sherrie
    December 22, 2012 at 9:29 pm

    Your light table looks great. I have used a window in a pinch when I needed more light to trace a pattern.
    All your give always have been terrific choices.

    • 44 Rita Nichols
      December 22, 2012 at 9:32 pm

      I have a small light box and the only drawback is that I can’t trace a whole pattern without moving it around. I think the larger size is something new and would be very handy. It would sure eliminate the frustration of having to move and line up patterns. Thanks for the tip.

  43. 45 Mary
    December 22, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    I have been shopping around for a light table for quite awhile, but never saw one that was good enough. I think I just found it! It’s right at the top of my list today!

  44. December 22, 2012 at 9:31 pm

    Really nice looking light box, another item for Santa to read about. Will miss our daily hints. Really enjoyed this.

    Every Fall when the time change happens and it’s too dark to trace patterns on my windows using sunlight, I think this is the year I’m going to break down and buy a light box. This sure looks like a great one to put on my wish list! Thanks for all your great posts, Lisa!

  46. December 22, 2012 at 9:33 pm

    Love your needful things list! Glad you had a good time at your party. Love the photo of santa and the elf. I bet everyone had a ball.

  47. 49 Margo Langer
    December 22, 2012 at 9:34 pm

    This is definately going on my list. I love the size. My light box is so small that I usually use the patio door. Some nights when I am desperate to get something traced I have resorted to using the Tv screen. This is not something I would recommend as most shows are so dark you have to keep waiting for a bright scene. Pitiful!

  48. 50 Kristy
    December 22, 2012 at 9:37 pm

    You have quilte a great list of ideas…..each one is better than the last. The light table would be a time saver for sure.

  49. 51 marie
    December 22, 2012 at 9:40 pm

    This will also go on my list. Now I go to a window and trace everything.

  50. 52 Bonnie Larson

    I would love to get a light table. My arms get sore holding papers up against the window…….. Thanks for the idea.

  51. 53 Sandy
    December 22, 2012 at 9:50 pm

    I have a very small light box and know what a help they can be. I have even resorted to tracing my designs on real tracing paper and trying to use that. Another great idea, thank you.

  52. 54 SheriBeri
    December 22, 2012 at 9:57 pm

    I have been eye-balling one of those…even took my hubby into my local quilt store and he saw me ogling it…so maybe Santa hubby will come through… Thanks for the tips and advice and peeks into your life. Way cool

    The light box would be a great tool to have. You have such good ideas. Looks like your party was lots of fun!

  55. December 22, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    i use my window when i need to trace … sigh … but it does get the job done. a light box like the one pictured would be a treasure! your list has been an eye opener – i onlythought i had lots of gadgets and needfrul things!

  56. 58 Cindy
    December 22, 2012 at 10:06 pm

    Love the light table! I have an old glass coffee table that I use, along with a flash light propped up in a shoe box underneath the table. Sometimes the tv screen works too…it’s 25 years old also. No sunshine I’ll find a way! My husband use to ask me what I was doing – now he understands – no questions. 🙂

    I have a small light box, but the larger would be very useful. This one looks like just the right size.

  60. 62 Kathleen
    December 22, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    I also have a small light box and a larger one would be so much better. Must mention it to “Santa” as mine is so old that it’s ready to give out on me.

  61. 63 Barbara P
    December 22, 2012 at 10:18 pm

    I agree a light box is a needful thing. I also have the large light box and love it!

    I have a homemade light box, but it’s not big enough. I’ve read about this light box, and it really is a needful thing! Thank you for all of the great hints and list of needful things. Happy holidays!

    I do a lot of tracing as I love to embroider. You would think I would have one of these. I’m sure it works better than taping things to the window…yep, that is my light box right now. Guess I better let Santa know. Thanks again for your tips. Glad your party was a success.

    December 22, 2012 at 10:56 pm

    By the pictures that must have been the “funnest” Christmas party! Since it was even hard for me to see all of what that light table looks like, I must really need one. 😉 It’s snowing again at your place!

  75. 77 Jill
    December 22, 2012 at 11:21 pm

    This is a product that is new to me. I have seen light boxes before, but this one looks very interesting. I will have to check it out.

    December 22, 2012 at 11:26 pm

    Again, you have the greatest ideas. That would be so much nicer than a window. I, too, will add it to my wish list.

  78. December 22, 2012 at 11:50 pm

    I currently have a small little light box doesn’t work all that well. I am up to about 5 or 6 needful things now!


  79. 81 Nancy D
    December 22, 2012 at 11:51 pm

    I do a lot of embroidery and tracing of sewing patterns. A good box like this would be a welcome addition. Sometimes a window just doesn’t do the job! PS your Santa and Elf are looking very jolly 🙂

  80. December 23, 2012 at 12:04 am

    Awesome…. I need a good one of these…

    I have a tiny 12×12 light table that I do all my wool work on and could not live without it. I finished my summer free be quilt while you were away at a show. I sent it to the PG facebook site and they were going to show it to you when you got back. Did you ever get to see it? I love it and feet very proud of doing my own thing on the borders. I’d attache a photo of it here but am not sure how to do that.

  97. 99 Kathy B.
    December 23, 2012 at 7:43 am

    This is the first item of the “needful things for quilters” that I actually have. My husband actually made it for me two summers ago when I was making your summer BOW. Some of those vines and flower placements were tricky, so I admit I wanted mine to look “almost” as great as yours. Thanks again for this countdown of top needfuls!

  98. 100 Rose
    December 23, 2012 at 7:45 am

    December 23, 2012 at 7:46 am

    This is the top of my needful things to get list. I now borrow one of my friends or put a lamp under my acrylic machine table. Not great, but gets the job done. Would be so nice to have a for real light table!

  100. 102 Carol D
    December 23, 2012 at 7:49 am

    That is a great size. I have a small light box that is helpful for card making, but definitely not much help on quilt blocks. I need to add this item to my “wish” list. Love the pic of Santa & Elf. Merry Christmas…and thanks for the great ideas.

    December 23, 2012 at 7:54 am

    That light box would be so great to have. I always end up using a window,but it has to be during daylight hours. The last big project that I needed a light box for, I used my glass top coffee table and put a light underneath. It worked – just not very convenient.

  103. 105 Janet Friedrich
    December 23, 2012 at 8:09 am

    This would be a wonderful light box for me – I do tons of applique, and need something with more power than the one I have. Thanks for the opportunity!

  104. December 23, 2012 at 8:20 am

    Fantastic.I need one,I usually use the window .

  105. 107 Lynn Lahr
    December 23, 2012 at 8:22 am

    This is a very needful thing. I always have touse a window to trace my applique placwments. I sm going to drop a hint to Santa about this very needful thing. I have enjoyed this needful things series and wish it would continue past 12 days. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  106. 108 Debbie

    Love my light box. Can’t imagine ever doing applique with out one now. Sounds like you had a very successful party. Good times with good people, does not get too much better than that..

    I have always wanted a light box. I know it would enhance anyones workmanship – or “stichmanship” !
    Ha! Sounds like you had a fun time at your party. Have a blessed Christmas!

    I have always use a light under my coffee table which is awkward to sit on the floor and the table is a little to high. I would love to win and if not Thanks so much for the chance. I’ll have to check into getting one of these. I loved the pictures of you Christmas buddies, it looks like they were having lots of fun. Have fun relaxing after such a fun filled night. Merry Christmas.

    Ha-Ha, everyone likes naughty! Glad you had a good time. I do admit I get tired of standing in front of a window tracing thru the paper taped up! Once again, it’s a good reminder of tools.

    I would love a light box. My window is getting all sticky with tape residue!

    I need this! I do use a smaller one all the time, or like others have mentioned…a window if I need to trace something larger. Thanks for all your tips!

  119. December 23, 2012 at 10:13 am

    I’m loving all the needful things and my wish list is getting longer. Looks like your party was a big success and a lot of fun–Merry Christmas!

  120. December 23, 2012 at 10:21 am

    Great way to place the wool applique using the light box. I’m loving your needful thing blog, I’m learning alot and I love to learn better ways to do things. Love the picture of Santa and his helper!

    What a luxury to have a light box. I’m up against the window to trace things….I wonder what the neighbors think?
    I love the picture of Santa and his Elf.

    I do a LOT of stitchery quilt blocks and it is really a pain to tape things up to a window and trace that way, though it does work. I don’t know about everyone else, but it kills my back and shoulders. I have had a good “Light Table” on my list of ‘things I really need’ for a while now and this one looks wonderful.
    By the way, Santa and his Elf are really adorable, LOL.

    I also use a window for a light box, it would be fun to have a light box that I could actually use at night. Looks like Santa and his elf were jolly enough.

    Merry Christmas!!!!

    This would make life so much easier-to actually be able to see CLEARLY the designs I want to trace. Wow! I would love to have a snowstorm once, but not likely here in southern Alabama.

    I really would like a light box. Using a window is just not the same.

    I’m making a list of your recommendations and when the holidays are over I am cleaning out my sewing room and keeping one of each tool-just the best most useful.

    That light box looks like it would be a lot easier than holding things up my back door window to trace. My arms get tired after a pretty short period of time!

    I hope Santa brings me a new light table. My h usband was cleaning and thought the box was empty…..:0

    I need something like that to help with my tracing.

    If I had one of my own, I could return my friend’s. She hasn’t bugged me to return it so I would certainly surprise her if I got my own. 🙂

    This is a great idea. I might have to try one.

    A light box would be a great addition to my sewing room. I still use the one my kids had when they we younger. I really should have one just for me.

    I have read about this lightbox, and it has been on my wishlist for a while. It just may have to move up a notch. I use a homemade lightbox this is awkward to use.

    a light box..why couldn’t I remember that when hubby asked what I wanted for Christmas…I usually use the window …kinda hard know it gets dark so early..and I work so late…maybe he can do a last minute gift!

    Keep it simple and don’t try to spread your investments in too many different areas. Trading too often can cost you fees or you may lose because you aren’t there when the
    long term profits pay off. Day trading is too risky, so always do your homework and
    invest in things that have stood the test of time and are reputable.
