I bought two of these Ott light lamps, both with a magnifier, from HSN. About 5 or 6 months afterwards (and I had not been sewing and they both were in the sewing room), when I went to press something I found one of them did not work! Probably due to one of the times that I was over in that area of the house and the lamp fell over as the lamp is so top heavy! I did try to fix it by trying a new light bulb, different outlet, put in the bulb that was in the working lamp….nothing worked.
I can’t say I am thrilled wth those floor lamps, esp at $150…. Now my vision is awful and I am sewing more and I need a floor lamp behind where I do most of my sitting in my comfy recliner and I have no idea what to get…. I order through Ebay, JoAnn catalogs, QVC and HSN and other places much more than I drive anywhere as I suffer from daily chronic headaches and don’t want to spend my limited daily time that sometimes I feel decent out shopping under fluorscent light that causes my migranes!
I did see one of the Ott lights that has a clip that you use for your sewing instructions I thought I’d really like…..and this one is prettier and would fit in my living room.
Ideas, suggestions, help???!!!???
