Quilt Market Giveaway..Day #1

While the quilt shop owners and vendors are all in Portland, Oregon at Quilt Market, Kelli and I thought it would be fun to host some giveaways featuring goodies that might be seen at market and offer giveaways to all of you.  Make sure to come back each day over the weekend to sign up for your chance to win goodies.

Today we are showing you Stella Lighting’s Stella Light.  The lights were recently featured in American Patchwork and quilting magazine and on Moda’s The Cutting Table Blog.

Ignore my messy sewing room.  Cleaning it is next on my list but first I need to write a couple blog posts..the choice was clean sewing room or writing blog giveaways for you for the next few days.  I picked you and giveaways…so cleaning is waiting.

Back to the Stella light…it is so neat!!  I am purposely leaving the next three photos touching so you can compare.  The light has three different setting, cool, warm and natural.  By looking at the photos you can see the difference.  The light also has a setting that adjusts the strength of the light similar to a dimmer.

The Stella Light will be awesome for matching fabrics.  I don’t know how many times I am a quilt shop and think fabrics look good together only to be fooled by the fluorescent lighting in the store.  I find myself often walking to the window to get a dose of natural lighting.  Now it will only be a push of the button away.

The light is completely adjustable.  I can make it be tall and almost straight or I can bend it down and around to be right where I am working.  It is really handy.

I am not sure how but there aren’t any light bulbs in the lamp.  I’ll never have to replace a bulb…yet, it says is I use it for 12 hours daily for 365 days of the year the light will still produce 70% of the light after 11 years.  I’ll admit, these light aren’t cheap but if is going to last that long, its an investment.

It is REALLY hard to take pictures to show you what this light can do.  Because of that, I am attaching a youtube link so that you can see the features.

If you would like a chance to win your own light, just leave a comment here telling if you are new to the blog, or a regular.  We will pick a winner next week.  Don’t forget to stop back tomorrow as a quilt market previews continue.  Oh..If you want to keep up with what we are doing on a regular basis, follow us on Facebook.

    I started reading your blog during the last Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks blog hop. Thanks for your informative posts. This is a great giveaway. It would be great to replace my aging lamp which must be plugged and unplugged because the switch no longer works. I love the fact that you can try to match colors under varying light conditions.

    I’m a regular reader–I enjoy the variety of topics that you post about, though quilting is what brought me to your blog. Thanks for the chance to win.

  3. I am a regular reader. I grew up in Polk City Iowa and have lots of family spreadout around your area. We also have a beagle so I enjoy the Ruby updates.

  4. I sure can relate to bad lighting in stores and regularly take bolts to the window or even outside to be sure what they really look like. That tactic alone has saved me from costly mismatched purchases. Of course, a few off the mark fabrics have sneaked by, and they just go into the stash for another project down the road.

  5. I am new to your blog and new to quilting! I have finished one quilt top and it is waiting to be quilted, but I am starting on a second already! I love quilts!!

  6. Marca Fritzemeier

    Thanks for the generous giveaway. This is exactly what I need as the lighting in my “cave” isn’t all that great!!

  11. I have been a regular follower for about a year and really enjoy reading your daily post. Would LOVE to win this light, we had to take the window out of my sewing room last summer and it has been impossible to get good lighting in there since:(

  14. I’m new to quilting and a new, but regular reader of the blog. I’ve bookmarked Kelli’s Christmas quilt as something to try. Right now I’m sewing at the dining table, so I could really use a light

  15. I started reading your blog about a year ago? Maybe 2? With a 5 year old, I have no concept of time :) Love the light! Makes me want to do my Marlon Brando impression from Streetcar….Stellaaaaaaa!

  16. Thank you for such a great give away chance with my new sewing area this would be handy. I am a regular reader/visitor. Thanks again Becky

  17. Oh what a great give away! A regular reader here, love to watch you progress. I think you are just about as productive as Bonnie hunter! I can not believe the amount of quilts you get done. You and Kelly are so cute, I can’t wait to see the next backdrop for the next Bengal photo shot.

  18. Hi!
    I found your blog about a month ago and now get my daily fix first thing in the morning! I am in dire need of lighting in my sewing room and have been unable to find what I’m looking for! But I knew it was out there!! I have never heard of Stella lighting before but when I checked them out thru your site, I see they also offer a floor model version that looks like it also will work for my work table! Yeah!! I knew I’d learn something from some other quilter if I was just patient enough! Thanks for your give aways & fun blogging!
