I bought my first Ott light several years ago ($150) and it made such a remarkable difference, that the lighting in the rest of my house was useless. I know have daylight bulbs in most everything.
Daylight bulbs are available at Walmart for about $6 and fit a normal fixture - the bulb itself is often bigger so check and make sure your lamp shades/covers are sufficient to cover them (I just took off the shades/covers).
My original lamp is still used and although I find the bendability of the lamp handy, the cost of the bulbs is $25.
In the future, I will get a clamp lamp with bendability and add a daylight bulb; entire unit, under $25.
Just my two cents worth - Debie

I need more light, too, but I bought a natural light goose neck lamp from Big Lots a few years ago (seems to me it was about $25).. It helps to have the light right on the area where you're working, so I really like that it is positionable...
I recently started sewing again. I have discovered that I need more lighting. My eyes are getting older and I now have bifocals. Joann Fabrics has the Ott lights half off. Can anyone recommens a particular one for machine quilting ?
