Day 8…Needful things for Quilters

How are we all doing on that Christmas shopping, baking, decorating, wrapping???  If it makes you feel any better…I got the tree and house decorated…have not made a single “christmas treat” yet…I have some shopping done, but not much and no wrapping…I am going to have a party this Friday for our friends, family and neighbors…but somehow it all gets done.   Now todays item is kind of repeat of one of my “12” last year, but a little different…This is called a light panel!  I love it because it is so sleek…3/4″ wide…bright and portable!  Yes…you can bring this light box with you!!! It is nicely built…sturdy not cheap…and it has a price of $197.95, but we are going to have it on sale for $149.00!   I know this is a little expensive, but you will not be disappointed in this product!  light panelI tried to get a good photo of this, but it is hard… I want you to know it is very nicely built…kinda like my iPad in a way but bigger…the center light section is 8×11…it has a cord and a nice on/off switch on the side…so it is easily brought anywhere your stitching needs to go…to order go here…LIGHT PANEL…Keep in mind this is a special order item and will take a bit longer to come in.

There is a video of me using in Moda’s booth at Fall quilt market on this post in November…HERE 

Todays winner from Day 9 is…..and she will win a set of the fan templates and some Moda pre-cut! Please email us at primitivegatheringsquiltshop@yahoo.com with your address details and we will get them out to you as soon as we get them in!!!

    Wow this looks a lot nicer than my solution of my Ott light under my plexiglass sewing machine table…it would be quite a step up!!

  3. December 17, 2013 at 2:33 pm

    You have been showing off some really needful things. I have missed the giveaway times but today might be my day. With all the applique I do this would be fabulous to own. Thanks for the chance.

    I feel like you are reading my mind today! I have been out the past week, looking for something like this cuz my arms get tired of always tracing things taped to a window LOL This sure would be a wonderful treat!

    Amazing! And so much better than the bulky light boxes I have. I hope Santa is listening!

    How cool is that, much better than a sunny window….

    This light box looks amazing! I’ve use others that were a bit expensive but they were much bulkier and didn’t seem to be as bright as the one you your demo video. I need one of these!

    I would love to have this light panel! I looked at one like this at the Des Moines show and talked myself out of it. Now I wish I had it almost every time I do stitching or applique. And it wouldn’t take lots of room to store!

  9. 9 marie

    What a cool light panel, would love to win as this is more than my fabric budget will allow right now.

    December 17, 2013 at 2:37 pm

    Yikes, for years I’ve been taping patterns to my window and tracing…this would be a GREAT tool to have!

  11. 11 Liz from Carlisle
    December 17, 2013 at 2:38 pm

    That looks really nice. and much better than using a window!

    This looks really handy. I would love to have such a portable light. It does all somehow get done. I keep hoping the elves will come during the night.

  14. 14 Debbie T
    December 17, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    I really need one of these! I use a light desk I was given as a child for a Christmas gift it works but this would be so much nicer.

  15. 15 Stacey larson
    December 17, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    Love it ! I’m going to have a huge order by the end uh oh

  16. 16 Deborah K
    December 17, 2013 at 2:43 pm

    uh oh, I think this looks as something I want! I do what others do and wait for sunny days to tape patterns onto sunny windows!

    It is hard to do at night. I have a lot of shapes of moons.

  17. 17 Betsy
    December 17, 2013 at 2:45 pm

    I would love something this portable to use for tracing!!!! How awesome!

    My light box consists of a wooden box with a piece of plexiglass on top and I put a desk lamp underneath the plexiglass. It was part of a project my son did in high school. ( he’s 23 now). And it’s heavy too. Needless to say that would be a nice light box to have. Thanks for sharing again.

  19. December 17, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    Look the sleekness and portability of this light box. Thanks for sharing! Will add it to my Santa List:)

  20. 20 Kathleen C
    December 17, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    What a great tool (as are all of your ideas :). Like so many others, my light table is rigged by taking a leaf out of the table, adding a lamp and a “storm” window over the table…It’s a chore and takes some of the fun out of a project.
    Thanks again!

  21. 21 Sandra
    December 17, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    What a great product. As I’ve gotten older the more important lighting has become. Would love to have one!!! Thanks for letting us know what’s out there to makeover sewing m

  22. December 17, 2013 at 2:51 pm

    A light box is like a rotary cutter to me, indispensable! I’m going to research this one some and put it on my birthday list!

  23. 23 Sandy
    December 17, 2013 at 2:54 pm

    That sure beats trying to hold everything still while it’s up against the patio window! Great idea.

  24. 24 Jackie Barron

    What I wouldn’t give to replace my 15 year old light box?!?!?!??

  25. 25 Carol
    December 17, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    Love this light panel…have been “lusting” after it since I saw your Moda video from Market!

  26. 26 Peggy Dalberto
    December 17, 2013 at 2:56 pm

    Lisa, I watched your moda video, and you were very calm and steady I thought! The light box certainly is easier and better than taping everything to a window on a sunny day like I do!!

  27. 27 Patricia Carreon
    December 17, 2013 at 2:58 pm

    This is wonderful. I have to hold my stuff against my window and it sure hurts my arms! Guess I can start saving for one. This would definitely be on my wish list.

  28. December 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    This new light panel is a great update to the old clunky style light box. I am putting this on my wish list.

  29. 29 Lynn in Madison
    December 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Light boxes do make life so much easier. I just picked up a box that you recommended some time in the past. Thanks for all the tips. Love ya!

  30. 30 Sheila Plock
    December 17, 2013 at 3:00 pm

    Oh my, I love electronic gadgets and this one is useful and portable to boot! Have tout this on my wish

  31. 31 Alice Tignor
    December 17, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Looks better than painters tape on the sunny window!

  32. 32 Sharon Bennett
    December 17, 2013 at 3:08 pm

    Wow! Great item to have on hand with all of these quilt designs that have massive amounts of embroidery in them! I’m stitching on one of those now and have about 8 more (embroidery quilt) patterns in my stash… not to mention how great this light pad would be for wool (and cotton) applique tracing too (not going to admit how many of those patterns are in stash lol)… hmmmm… I’m going to have to talk to Santa… I could really get some good use of one of these…

  33. 33 Leanne
    December 17, 2013 at 3:11 pm

    I didn’t know a light box could be so slim…great idea! This will be on my list for Santa,
    Happy Holidays,

  34. December 17, 2013 at 3:13 pm

    I’m going to have to put this on my birthday wish list because I know my Christmas gifts have already been purchased, but I sure would love to get one in my stocking!

  35. 35 Vicki H
    December 17, 2013 at 3:15 pm

    I love the Light Panel. Sure beats the dining room window.

  36. 36 Sandy K

  37. 37 Sue kraft
    December 17, 2013 at 3:20 pm

    Yes, it does look like an iPad. My light box is about 20 years old and is a big clumsy thing. You would never mistake it for an iPad! Thsnks for sending your needful things blog. I always look forward to seeing what is next!

  38. 38 Jacque Wright
    December 17, 2013 at 3:26 pm

    It would be wonderful to have a portable light box for working on projects when not at home. Great idea!

  39. 40 Tracie Malone
    December 17, 2013 at 3:29 pm

    This sure would be nice under my tree…even if I do put it there myself!

    Looks great! Thanks so much for a chance.

  45. 46 Gaile Schriber
    December 17, 2013 at 3:44 pm

    Wow! That great little tool would replace me taping the copy to the window and the trying to retrace on fabric or other items. It would mean no more trying to get the tape residue off the window and no more swearing because I screwed up once agin!

  46. 47 Sharon K
    December 17, 2013 at 3:50 pm

    Would love to have one. Have to give a hint to my husband.

  47. 48 Kathy
    December 17, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I saw you demonstrate this as you mentioned in your post. At the time, I wondered where I would find a lite box like the one you demo……I will put this on my wish list for next year as he already has my gift for this year. Christmas will need to come earlier next year, cause I can’t wait till Dec. Thanks for the fun post.

  48. 49 Kathy O in GA
    December 17, 2013 at 3:58 pm

    I have a friend that has one like this and when we get together to work with wool we all have light box envy of her. Very cool tool. Thank-you for the opportunity to win some of your beautiful fabric and prizes.

    December 17, 2013 at 4:02 pm

    This is so awesome! I have been using one of those heavy green metal medical x-ray viewer cabinet that hung on the doctors office wall until it became obsolete and thus mine!

    Much nicer looking than a homemade light box.

  56. 57 Kary
    December 17, 2013 at 4:08 pm

    It looks like a great tool – would love to have it for Christmas – hey even after Christmas it would still be fantastic! A great new tool for the New Year!

  57. 58 Marsha Gardner
    December 17, 2013 at 4:11 pm

    Wow! I have a light box but this is beautiful and sleek!

  61. 62 Janet Kay
    December 17, 2013 at 4:18 pm

    Each needful item you are featuring just keeps getting better. The light panel is another must have tool that would be great for traveling!

  62. 63 stacy

    Awesome must have! You never know when you need to trace for stitching. Love how portable this is.

  63. 64 Juanita
    December 17, 2013 at 4:20 pm

  65. 66 Glynis
    December 17, 2013 at 4:22 pm

    Very nice light box with lots of room to trace. I remember when I used to trace holding the pattern up to the window which was always awkward for me.

  66. December 17, 2013 at 4:23 pm

    Great lightbox. That would come in handy for those wool quilt blocks I love to make. Nancy P.

  67. December 17, 2013 at 4:26 pm

    This is a great big item on my “wish” list!!!! If not for Christmas (I think Santa already did his shopping) the next birthday or Valentines’s day may be just the perfect time!!!

    Never stop wishing 🙂

  68. 69 Cindy
    December 17, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    I have used my Mom’s old tv that still works, glass coffee table with a flashlight & a window with daylight. We learn to be creative in many ways for our sewing needs. This is an awesome light!

  69. 71 Katherine
    December 17, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    What a great light box. I didn’t know they made skinny ones!

  70. December 17, 2013 at 4:28 pm

    WOW!! I love the way they are inventing all these wonderful things to make quilting easier!! I could DEFINITELY use one of these!! Wonder if it will fit into my stocking?? Have a great Christmas!

  71. 73 Michele T
    December 17, 2013 at 4:30 pm

    I need this tool – it would be perfect for my applique projects.

  72. 74 Barbara

    What a neat tool. It would be very helpful with my applique, one of my favorites in quilting.

  73. 75 Pat Briggeman
    December 17, 2013 at 4:35 pm

    This looks so cool . I would definitely like to try it for my wool projects.

  74. 76 Joni M.
    December 17, 2013 at 4:43 pm

    Looks like a great tool for my appliqué, and more user friendly and less bulky than my lightbox. nice!

  75. 77 Carole
    December 17, 2013 at 4:46 pm

    You have the BEST ideas. This sure would beat using the window……especially in winter!!!!

  76. 78 Rose Jeter
    December 17, 2013 at 4:50 pm

    I saw you do a video demo at the Houston Quilt Show on your wool block of the month from this past summer and you were using this, and I thought it was the coolest light box, so had to buy myself one, it is so handy and your right nice and compact not like the light boxes from back in the day.

  77. 79 Karla Pickhinke
    December 17, 2013 at 4:54 pm

    This looks awesome!! I always tape my patterns on my kitchen door in the sunlight!

  83. 85 Pamela Miller
    December 17, 2013 at 5:27 pm

    What will they come up with next? This is fabulous! Compact but such a useful size. Love it and would love to have one.

  86. 88 Karen
    December 17, 2013 at 5:34 pm

    I have wanted one of these since I watched your demonstration of your new Words to Live By BOM on the Moda website. I recently placed my order for your new Words to Live By BOM and am looking forward to creating the quilt. Thanks for the excellent Needful things suggestions. I am learning lots!

  87. 89 Lynn

  88. 90 Barb Onken
    December 17, 2013 at 5:36 pm

    That looks wonderful! So much better than holding project up to the window.

    You light up my life….you give me hopes to copy my patterns to fill my nights with late night quilting, you give me hope….there’s an easier wayyyy…..youuuuu lightttt uppppp myyyy life. I really need one of these in the worse way. I will even sing and dance for it 🙂

  91. 93 Pam Hintze
    December 17, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    I am still using a window or glass from a picture frame with a light balanced under the glass. This is on my wish list for sure!

  92. 94 Joyce
    December 17, 2013 at 5:53 pm

    Oh my…how handy this would be when doing my wool applique…I wouldn’t have to use the window anymore……….

  93. 95 Janet Glover
    December 17, 2013 at 6:02 pm

    The light box looks so cool! My light box is so cumberson and this looks so streamlined. Another great thing to add to my wish list!

  104. 107 Brenda Y
    December 17, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    How cool is that light box, I better talk good to Santa and see how good he thinks I have been this year 🙂

  105. 108 Linda Frihart
    December 17, 2013 at 6:44 pm

    Lisa, anyone who has traced any shape will fall in love with the LIght Panel. I know because I have one. Gifted myself one and highly recommend. It is so sturdy and heavy enough to stay in place and better still the lighting is perfection for any quilters tracing including the blacks I’ve checked. Another hint, you’ll have time to complete more projects with time saved using your light panel.

    Totally enjoying the Twelve Days of Christmas you’ve created.

  106. 109 Barb G.
    December 17, 2013 at 6:46 pm

    December 17, 2013 at 7:23 pm

    Another great idea. I love the size! So much better than the angled 4×6 one I have been using.

  113. December 17, 2013 at 7:38 pm

    I’ll leave a note for Santa under my tree

  114. 117 Rebecca K.
    December 17, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    How cool is that light panel! Typically I have to tape the pattern to a sunny windowpane, and trace quickly before my hands and arms go numb as the blood drains due to the awkward positioning! Either that or stand on my head, that’s TROUBLE! Lisa B, you did a great job on your demo video. Thanks for all you do!

  115. 118 Barbara D.
    December 17, 2013 at 7:39 pm

    How that is really nifty!

  116. December 17, 2013 at 7:41 pm

    What a cool light box. This is definitely going on my wish list!

    Awesome gift idea. I use my huge clunky lightbox often. A slim panel would be very useful.

    I’ve been looking for this light since I saw your demo. So great that you have it for sell. I think I will forward your email to my husband’s personal email account (Hint…Hint…Hint)!!! He surprises me every now and then with something on my wish list!!! Thanks for sharing such great ideas and products!

    I have the big chunky light box that isn’t always as bright as I wish, this one looks like a serious upgrade!

    This is so exciting! I’ve never found a light box that is very good.

    What a great light for transferring designs. My husband made a light box for me, and I mean it is a box, with a florescent light inside and a piece of Plexiglas on top. It works, but I can’t put it in a bag to take it anywhere. I am putting this on my wish list. Thanks for sharing.

  124. December 17, 2013 at 8:33 pm

    What a great light panel! Right now I have to tape my pattern to a sunny window and trace quickly before my hands & arms go numb as the blood drains due to positioning. Either that or stand on my head, now that’s TROUBLE! Lisa B., you did a great job on your demo video. Thanks for all you do!

    Well, that looks a lot easier than my method of holding a flashlight between my knees with my 9X13 baking dish balanced on my lap, and my pattern taped to the top of it!

    I have been using make shift light boxes for years…..I really need a true light box. The sleek size of this is awesome!! Thanks!

    Got one better…put a light in the center of an old wooden soda crate with a plexiglass top to trace or use my patio door…this would be much more portable 🙂 Needful means using what we have in a pinch!

    Apple missed the boat! All that programming that went into the iPad and all they needed was the light! :). Love it!

    This light box looks amazing…..much better than the kids Crayola trace pad that I tried or the sunny window. I would think that this would make tracing more accurate. Thank you for showing us all these great needful things.

    Lisa, like you, I have many things that need to be finished before Christmas but somehow it all gets done.

    Love the light panel and watched you using it in the YouTube video. Love the Words to Live By quilt, also. It’s being offered as a BOM at my local weekly show next year and I’m on board.

    This lightbox looks amazing — it’s compact so good to take to workshops, classes, and retreats. I like to applique so it would be great for layouts and cutouts.

  142. December 17, 2013 at 10:42 pm

    Santa is bringing me a featherweight, so I’d better not add this to the list, but it will definitely go on my “save up for” list.

  143. December 17, 2013 at 11:08 pm

    Wow! This is definitely going on my wish list to Santa!

    December 17, 2013 at 11:55 pm

    Ok! This is so much better than sitting on the floor with the OttLite under the coffee table glass!! Getting too old (and stiff) to be sitting cross legged on the floor. Going to hint to my husband. Thanks for info!

  146. December 18, 2013 at 12:04 am

    I will put this one on my wish list. I’m looking forward to the blog posts of your home all decorated for the holidays!

    LOL… I thought it WAS an ipad or a tablet. These things are so useful, I use a light under a glass table as my light box! Not very scientific but it works.

    Hi Lisa & crew! I love your posts for the 12 Needful Things! Most of these are products that I have not yet seen. It’s great to have a quilter & stitcher give a review on these new products. This new “skinny” light box would be so much better than using my large front window to trace with. I even had one of my neighbors stop over and ask me “What in the world are you always doing with fabric taped to your windows?” Obviously she wasn’t a stitcher! :o) Merry Christmas to you & all your PG followers!

    What a terrific light box-nice and thin-it would just be perfect to own/use! Another great offering, thanks Lisa.

    December 18, 2013 at 6:46 am

    Wow, that is a great tool! I’ve never had a light box—always used the glass door in my dining area. How wonderful an actual light box would be! Thanks for adding this to the list!

  156. 161 Janet
    December 18, 2013 at 6:59 am

    LOVE this light box! It would be perfect to tote around to classes and to keep by my “sewing chair”. Thanks for the opportunity!

    I am in the exact same place with my Christmas preparations. Lots of wrapping & treat making to come & a bit more shopping. Two hand made gifts need to get finished today so they ship to my quilty friend’s in time. Better get busy.

  159. 164 Dee
    December 18, 2013 at 7:54 am

    I have tried several light boxes. If it works for Lisa it will work for me. More Christmas shopping for me. Yeah!

  162. 167 Carolyn Maynard
    December 18, 2013 at 8:50 am

    I look, every day, for your 12 days of Christmas suggestions, even when I am extremely busy! Love ’em! This light box sure beats taping patterns to the window, which works but is not convenient, especially at night!

  163. December 18, 2013 at 9:03 am

    That is a very cool light! I would love it but i having been using the window for so long i doubt i would know how to act!!! I think next year i will for sure have to put this on my Christmas list for my hubby….thanks, Tammy

    I would love to own one of those light panels. It is a bit pricey, but if it is as amazing as it sounds it will be worth it! I have a more bulky light box but this would be sweet!

  167. 172 Karen
    December 18, 2013 at 10:27 am

    I have this on my Christmas list but don’t know if I will get it. The elf will report back to Santa that I might have been a bit naughty this year – how dare he though! Absolutely love it. This would be wonderful to use with all the applique work I do.

    December 18, 2013 at 2:16 pm

    This would be nice to have to take to a class or take on vacation if I’m working on projects!

  172. 177 Karen
    December 18, 2013 at 2:18 pm

    Wow. This would sure be an improvement on what I use now for a lightbox! Usually my patio door!

  173. 178 De De
    December 18, 2013 at 2:19 pm

    My family would be so happy my things aren’t taped to the patio window anymore 😉

    Way cool light box! Sure looks easy to use!

  178. 183 Mary
    December 18, 2013 at 4:58 pm

    Boy, that sure looks easier to use than my back porch door window! The silly latch is a little loose and the door busts open if I lean on it too much. I might have to add this to my Christmas list.

    Much better than up against a window….. Love it!

    By reason of his greater steel warehouse revenue desire for approval, more acutely than any other three types combined, and gets more for his money out of Sahaja Yoga.

    Ward Dennis, a spokesman for the Williamsburg Greenpoint Preservation Alliance, called the previous owners’ plans for the site.
    Advancement inn windows and doors are available in aluminium
    windows jobs these warehouses. They can either save up enough money to move to
    a larger space and hople that they do not require much space and can
    slide across a fixed window. This is very important to have Barcoding automation, custom logistics and warehouse management system.
