Day 3 of 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways – ASF Lightware Solutions/Beam n Read

12-days-of-christmas

Welcome to day 3 of our 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways.    Each day QuiltShopGal will showcase a different sponsor and unwrap (reveal) their gift to one lucky winner.  To enter to win, you need to claim at least one option in the Rafflecopter form, but for those that like to increase their odds, there are a variety of options and you can claim as many as you wish.

I like to think of today as the day the lights go on to light up Christmas.  You may be wondering what I’m thinking, but those of us that have welcome winter probably have noticed that we have not only few hours of good sunlight, but more time to quilt, sew, knit, and create where many of us do not have great lighting.  Thus, today is the day the lights go on, as I want to share insights with you about a great source of personal and very portable lighting.  I also want to share that today, known as Day 3 of the 12 Days of Christmas Giveaways, is sponsored by  ASF Lightware Solutions/Beam n Read

I’m a happy user of Beam n Read lights and enjoy using them throughout the year, but they are a “must have” for the winter months.  They are an excellent source of personal light, perfect for handwork (quilting, sewing, knitting, etc), reading and more.  The lightweight structure also allows you to change the angle of the light, which I’ve found it to enable functionality for more than a personal light as you can prop it on a table, shelf, car, and that extra light has been most helpful.    I have also found that the batteries last a really long time, as the LEDs are bright, but don’t require all that much power.

As it is difficult to wear a Beam n Read personal light and take a #Selfie, I want to share with you photos of several of my friends wearing this light.  They just hang it off of their neck (aka hands free personal light), adjust the angle and have great lighting when the read, as well as quilt, sew, crochet, knit, etc..

Here is some info on current products from Beam n Read / ASF Lightware solutions:

Marjorie shares tips, tutorials and inspirational projects on her blog, as well as by way of guest posts on the Craftsy blog and AccuQuilt blog.

MACHINE EMBROIDERY DESIGN COLLECTIONS are available on Marjorie’s Blue Feather Quilting Studio online store that can be downloaded.  She also has many available from AccuQuilt, where some are downloadable and some are available via CD, as well as from the Craftsy store.

QuiltShopGal has  stitched out many of her designs and they always stitch out perfectly, with amazing detail.  Her designs stand out with great detail, super crisp lines and angles, minimal or no jump stitches, and the obvious – super cute designs that are very versatile for what you can create with them.  Here are a few examples:

INSPIRATIONAL PROJECT IDEAS

As I’ve mentioned, Marjorie shares tips, tutorials and inspirational projects on her blog, as well as her guest blog posts on the Craftsy blog and the AccuQuilt blog.  While the possibilities of what you can create with Marjorie’s machine embroidery designs are endless, here are a few project by Marjorie that caught my attention:

I’m actually working on fun and fast projects to give as gifts, this holiday season.  In the past, I’ve used her designs to create table toppers, wallhangings, baby quilts, mug rugs, as well as fabric books for toddlers.  What I’m currently working on is for Christmas gifts, which I want to keep as a  surprise, thus I can’t share all of them with you, but I hope you’ll get the idea as I show you a  mug rug that I’m auditioning fabric for binding.  This was stitched using Marjorie’s GO! Sleigh – Reindeer – Snowflakes collection.  Super easy, fun and fast, with amazing detail.

Think about how great mug rugs would look with Marjorie’s snowflakes, reindeers, stars, Christmas trees, or other designs.  Of course, they’d also look great on placemats, table runners,  wallhangings, Christmas tree skirts, clothing, quilts, etc..  And, they’d certainly make for great decorations for your home, as well as for gifts.

FREE PATTERNS  – As mentioned, Marjorie has several free designs that are fun to stitch out and also a great way to see the quality of her machine embroidery designs.
