I love my light box that we featured in 2013…but you know just like our flat screen tv’s they have made them bigger, better, skinnier and cheaper in two years!!! A light box is a must for wool appliqué on cotton/flannel… for getting exact placement of the blocks…These are 24″ blocks I am working on …it was nice to be able to do this with the large light box instead of moving around so much on the little one..(moda fabric & book coming out in MAY)
The Wafer Light Boxes 1 & 2 are only .3″ thick. That’s a hair bigger than a 1/4″…They come in 2 sizes with tracing area measures is 12.5″x 9″ or is 12.5″x 17″… It has a dimmable LEDs and provides an even spread of light from edge to edge. It is powered by AC adapter and is very low heat. The cord is nice and long too!!
Now I love my 8×10 box from a couple of years ago…and will not replace that size…but did you see 12 x17!!! I love how big that is…It’s hard when doing large blocks like I am doing now…I was so giddy when I opened this!!! I do have to let you know that you need to hold in the power button so it gets brighter…I was like…that’s it???when I turned it on…. but then held the button in and it got brighter!!! It even has a ruler along one edge…I know I need this for when I need to measure my piece of fusible/wool to know what to write down for writing directions. These new skinny light boxes are only reg.$150 on sale for $125 and reg.$250 on sale for $200. So essentially we are getting much skinner and twice a big for what the 2013 light box was…These items are so new…they are shipping in early January from our supplier…We will not process anything until we ship them…so we got a little time on this one! WAFER LIGHT BOX
These last couple of items I know are more pricey than a lot of the previous ones…but keep in mind your friends and family are always looking for something to buy you! So If YOU cannot get them now, theres always birthdays, mothers day and so on…get the kids to pitch in!!!…But you have to give them ideas! They will be happy that you actually had a list of things instead of saying… you don’t need anything…They want to see you smile…because giving is awesome! Right?
Again…I thank you for being such great customers…both with your hard earned dollars and with your constant compliments and moral support when I need it…you all are truly an amazing part of my life…and that is why I feel I can share my life with you…and you are all correct being a Grandma was perfect timing…God does know what he is doing…and I didn’t mean to give away the baby yesterday! That was funny…
Comment to win!!! Do you have a light box? Are you still using the window? LOL…
PS…Do you know I have to starting thinking about the Summer Block of the Week(s) already??? Crazy life!!! Today I am going to pick out stain for that beautiful beat up old floor in my new home…and I need to get my gifts wrapped and finished up…and I’m so happy, last night I stayed home and stitched my remaining blocks 72 for another quilt I am working on for the Christmas Gatherings book!!! Can you feel my excitement!!!
