New Light Pad!

Today I am showing you one of my new toys - a Huion Light Pad.

This is a very thin light source that I use for tracing designs on to fabric or freezer paper or whatever.This light pad lies on the side-table next to my quilting machine. I don't have to remove it to do my quilting, it is flat enough that the fabric glides right over it. I leave it out all the time and have found it to be much more of a useful tool than my old light table. Its LED so its energy usage is low too.

My old light table was bulky and I had to put it away or it would get in the way of my other work. Just having to take it out prevented me from using it many times. Since I have gotten this light pad I have used it much more often than my previous light table because it is so convenient. I am so glad I purchased it. I love being more productive!

In case you are curious, I  purchased it on Amazon. It is about 14" x 19". It had very good reviews and was about half the price of the leading model, which I will not name here.

That's today's tip!

Thanks for visiting my blog!


  1. Thanks for this information, Eileen. Light boxes do take up a lot of premium space so this item would be great addition to any studio.
