If you have ever tried to work on a sewing project in low-light, then you already know how important proper lighting is for your sewing room. Even in the best light, sewing can cause your eyes to tire easily and become strained, but this is even worse if your lighting isn’t up to par. That is why you need to find a solution that works for you! At Sew Vac Direct, not only do we offer the very best sewing machines, including the amazing Janome sewing machines, but we also want to help you to be as safe and productive as possible. That is why our experts have come up with this list of creative lighting ideas for your sewing room:

  • Lighting from all angles- Shadows can be one of the biggest obstacles that you have to deal with while sewing, but if you have a light source coming from as many angles as possible, you can almost avoid them altogether! One of the best ways to do this is with overhead lighting, a table lamp, and track lighting. This will cover all of your bases!
  • White lights- Although sewing can be relaxing, the last thing that you will want in your sewing room is ambient lighting from your overhead lights. We suggest trading those bulbs out for white, brighter bulbs. These kinds of bulbs give you a lot more light, and they make it much easier for your to see even the smallest details of the project that you are working on.
