Halo Go Product Review

I love to hand stitch - whether it is hand piecing (check out our QAL!) or stitching on a binding.

Just sitting and stitching, perhaps watching a movie or maybe just enjoying the quiet, is so very relaxing.  The need for really good light has made this difficult at times so I was very excited to try the Halo Go light by the Daylight Company.  (The Daylight Company is a sponsor for the Harmony Hand Pieced QAL and sent a complimentary light for Kristin and I to try.)

I've used the light for a few weeks now and I can say that I love it!  It came in really handy when I was sewing on a binding.  Even sitting in front of a sunny window (decorated with all my Toy Story toys), extra light was required.   

The light is portable.  It folds nicely and is really easy to carry with you to wherever you want to sew.  It charges with a USB charger and give 4-8 hours of light depending on which of the 2 brightness levels are chosen.

Flip open the top and you get a handy magnifying glass - very useful for threading needles.  

For me, the biggest selling point is that the light is portable - it can go anywhere and balance on the arm of a chair or on an end table to give me all the light I need.  The neck will bend all the way over to allow the light to be directed anywhere.  Its folds into a nice compact shape too - easy to carry with me around the house.

We will be giving away a few Halo Go light by the Daylight Company to participants during the Harmony QAL.

  1. Oh that sounds perfect for we geriatric people--I am always turning up lights here to hand quilt and sew...that was a nice gift you got hugs, Julierose

  2. This light looks fantastic, especially as it's not corded and you don't need to sit close to a power point to use it.

  3. This lamp looks very stable. I bought a different rechargeable daylight lamp and it is forever falling over when I extend the arm. Looks like the company has done lots of thinking and improving. I am so glad that they are able to support your sewing project.

  4. I have three Daylight lamps myself, and really appreciate having such lights as my vision changes with age. It's great that you had a chance to try this one, and that you'll be giving one away to a participant in your quilt-along.

  5. I love the idea that it's chargeable. My sofa is not close to an outlet, so I have to use an extension cord.


Thanks for visiting Elm Street Quilts. Looking forward to hearing from you!
