      This is a great giveaway. I would absolutely love to win this magnification lamp. My vision is extremely poor and makes it hard for me to do many things. Winning would be an incredible blessing. I feel that whomever wins will be very happy.

    A magnifying Ott light would be such a tremendous addition to my scrapbooking supplies as I have recently had cataract surgery and, while I see better at distances, I must still contend with glasses for close work.

    Would set this next to my chair as a lamp and then be able to use the light and magnifier to see when I crochet and read patterns, sew and for fine details on my water color painting. Overhead lights in the ceiling or regular table lamps just don’t provide enough light where I need it whether reading or crafting.

    I am so excited about this giveaway. I crochet A LOT and this would make it so much easier to tell colors apart (especially at night). It’s surprising how similar some of the colors look at night in artificial light (like blues and greens). I guess the fact that I’m getting older doesn’t help but I prefer to blame it on the lighting! Thanks for the chance to win this.

    What an awesome lamp. I’d definitely use it as a floor lamp to read. I’d use it as a table lamp for my every day design work since my lamps do give off a yellow hue. The eyestrain that could be relieved using the magnifier is nice. I could really dive into detail work on illustrations instead of breaking it up into small blocks because of eye strain. Also to work on models, read and proof. Good luck everyone!

    I’m proud to say I own an Ottlie table lamp as well as a floor lamp. I do not have a magnifying light. If I did have one I’d use it to make stencil patterns into cross stitch and quilting patterns, and of course while doing the crafting. As someone who was known as a multi-tasker, a health condition has left me unable to do things as quickly as before. I think that if I win, the first thing I make will be about the saying that this project is made by my hands but truly given by my heart.

    I have an eye disease (Retinitis Pigmentosis) and am legally blind. I am still able to see enough to enjoy doing the crafts I love. The Ottlite magnifer lamp would enlarge for me to view better. The light would enable me to see later in the evening because my vision becomes worse then and worse in a dim area. The Ottlite would be a blessing to have.

    I have been diagnosed with an eye condition which makes it very difficult to distinguish between colors and even with multiple light sources in the room I need a true light and magnifying glass. I have been looking at the Ottlite for over a year. It is difficult to spend money for something that only I can use in my household. I craft, do miniature drawings, tangle, and make cards. I would use the light not only at my desk, or at friends craft gatherings but could also use it while sitting in the living room too as it is a portable light.

I hve some vision issues and having the magnifier would make fiddly stuff so much easier and the true light makes colour matching so much easier. I would love to have this and I appreciate the chance to win it.
