New Bulb for Featherweight

I've had my Featherweight for a few years now and I still love it. I take it to classes and retreats. When I need to get my BERNINA serviced I pull out my Featherweight and sew with it while the BERNINA is serviced. Being without my main machine for a week or so doesn't bother me since I got my Featherweight.

The thing I don't like about my Featherweight is the light bulb. It's dim and gets dang hot. After burning myself for the umpteenth time at the last retreat I commented how I wished someone would come out with an brighter, cooler bulb for these machines. So I started looking around online. Some one has and I finally got around to ordering one last week. It came yesterday.

I popped that baby in my machine and voila - I can see and it doesn't get hot!

Oh my! I love it! If you want to order one for yourself, click this link. The link will take you directly to the page on the Stitch All The Things website where you can order yourself a bulb. I have no affiliation with them. I'm just a satisfied customer. I think the price is reasonable for an LED bulb. The customer service was great and the shipping was fast. You do have to submit your order and then wait for him to send you an invoice via PayPal, but it didn't take very long for the invoice to arrive in my inbox.

I don't really use my Featherweight much, but I do like the idea of a brighter bulb in it.

I have one in my 15-91 Singer and it works great!

My LQS has these, and I bought one, but I haven't put it in my FW yet. I'm waiting for the bulb to burn out. I may just replace it anyway. I can't wait. It's a great thing!
