“Lighting is going to be the thing that not only helps quilters and crafters see colors well, but it is physiologically going to save you a lot of pain and trouble because if you have good light, you can see what you’re doing, and you don’t have to get your nose right down into your work.”
HollyAnne believes one of the biggest pain points that no one talks about in quilting is ergonomics and the importance of having good posture while you are working. Quilters spend a lot of time sitting and focusing on detailed work and tiny stitches. Without proper lighting, the way they look at the details is by getting very close to them, resulting in hunching, bad posture, and eyestrain. HollyAnne mentions a lot of quilters suffer with back, shoulder, and hip pain because of poor ergonomics.
