I am going bonkers trying to find something-! (happens a lot)! Awhile ago I watched a program-I think it was on HGTV- showed a lady doing some hand work. She had this fabulous light hanging around her neck that lit up her work perfectly. I noted the name, went and googled it- found that it sells for $99. Now I can't find any reference to it whatsoever no matter how I search. Can someone please help me? I think I want to buy one but can't find it anywhere.

You may want to re-post using a more descriptive thread title. There are definitely some gadget fans here, so I'm sure they'd be able to answer in a flash!

It was not on the sight it had previously been on. Wonder why?? Well anyway, I stumbled on to this while looking. For 1/5 the price, it might be worth a try.

gardenglory- that looks interesting, but I wonder if it would be OK for hand work- knitting, etc. The price is so low- compared to the $99 that the other one was. I hope someone can find it!!!

JoAnn's also has a Visual Mate which is a lamp and magnifier for $79.00. There are almost always coupons available for 40% to 50% off. and sometimes free shipping.

They also carry Ott lights, my personal favorite. I have several, one for each machine and a floor model I use for reading and hand work. There again with a coupon they are quite reasonable.

These are also available at JoAnn stores. You can sign up for the coupons and in some areas there is a flyer in Sunday papers. If all else fails, let me know I usually have a pretty good supply of JoAnn coupons.

So glad you found it, it was driving me nuts. The sight It was on before only had replacement parts.

Im gunna try the cheap on, will let you know how it goes. Looks lighter, and as long as I get free shipping from amazon, I figure its worth a try.

I use one of the carpenter lights that you wear on your head.
Even better is the magnifier with light that attaches to a standing Ott light.
