I've gone to great lengths to be able to see my stitches.
I'm keeping it real....yeah, I'm a dork.
With or without the led lighting on my longarm machine, sometimes, I have no idea where my stitches are going - I just cannot see them amongst the fabric. I have a plan - but I can't see a darn thing. And it isn't a vision thing...
My machine has a black light which I discovered - and I kind of giggled with glee that it did...memories of night clubbing all over again...sigh. ( I really need to find those old Cure and Smiths cd's)
But my black light doesn't work on everything.... :(
blinded once again.
I have tried turning all lights off, using my headlamp, etc. Any suggestions from the audience out there?
I discovered my headlamp is also great for checking my tension and stitches underneath the quilt.
I also have a new secret. Under this machine, it is really quiet and a super great hiding spot...where no one can bother me. It's now my number #2 spot behind shower time.
