Tools of the Trade - Etsybloggers Carnival

I think my favorite tool, and something I couldn't work without, is my magnifier/light. I was lucky enough to be out shopping with my DH, when we came upon this device in a fabric store (don't remember why we were there - the extent of my sewing is replacing buttons and sewing hems.) I said, "Wow, I could use something like that." And DH said, "You need it - let's get it."


The magnifier was something I wouldn't have picked up if I was out by myself. It's been a real blessing! Working with beads can be hard on the eyes. I also use it to read the telephone book and dictionary. I would highly recommend something like it to anyone doing “close” work or needing to read the "fine print!"

I've often thought about getting that to help with the times that my glasses don't work. Darn my farsightedness!

Do you think it helps take good pictures when u don't have natural light? I was considering one (w/o the magnifier).

The table is handy to photograph on, right in front of the window. I don't use my light/magnifier for picture taking.

What a great idea! I hadn't thought of using one of those for close work... but it totally makes sense! :)
