Beam n Read

I don't know about you, but I always need a bright light when sewing by hand. It needs to be focused directly on my sewing and not cast shadows over my stitching, nor get in the way of my hand. I prefer to sew while sitting on my couch so the light needs to be flexible, as well. 

My eyesight's not as good as it used to be and I've tried many different lights over the years. Nothing worked for me. 

Luckily, my friend Sarah snapped up one of these Beam n Read lights at Market at Houston last year for me and it has solved my dilemma. Don't you love friends who look out for you?

It weighs very little, it runs on batteries, it does not generate heat, and there are various lighting options. It hangs around my neck but does not irritate because it is so light.

I've been using it this year and it is simply brilliant.

What a great combination - a good friend and efficient technology - to make a difference in life! 

I don't know if anyone in Australia sells Beam n Read lights but they should! (If you know an Australian stockist, please leave a comment.)


  1. Hi Erica, I want one too. Might have to do some research over here 😊
    Cheers Chrissy

  2. Thanks for post! I just ordered via Amazon...I live in states so easy to find. I have ott light but no plug on my left side where I sit at night! This will be perfect!!! thanks for suggestion!

    1. Hope it works for your situation, Robbie.

  3. Erica, Thank you for your kind words about our light. Amazon.com does ship to Australia and the shipping $ is low. We are interested in having Australian stockists carry our light.
