That looks interesting - pricey, but interesting. Have you used one, or seen it in person?

Great idea. I bought a similar LED light set (longer light strips, of course) for undercabinet kitchen lighting, and the amount of light those tiny bulbs produce is amazing.

I nearly fainted at the prices!! The cheapest are nearly $70?! Maybe it's because we buy so many LEDs for our boat that I'm familiar with prices but my god, I was expecting these to cost about $20. You could easily get a standalone IKEA LED and mount it there for even less than that...

Aha, if you click on the second video demonstration, this must be where the sewing LED light strip idea came from!

This very pricey little invention seems like a natural outgrowth of under-cabinet illumination technology. It's a wonder no one has thought of using it on a sewing machine before, since good lighting there is always, always a concern for us.

Certainly, such a small number of LEDs should not be costly in themselves; the price probably reflects the fact that it's a new idea for a niche market, and maybe there's a bit of engineering in making the electrical connection unobtrusive. Take a look at the price for this different approach to the problem.

I dont know -- 70.00 is lots of money .. but its lots less than the cost of a new machine with better lighting.

And, by gosh, it is not going to shine directly in your eyes! DH is urging me to get one, bless his heart (and he really doesn't want to engineer it from parts himself).
