I was doing a search for the perfect retreat lighting. I was planning to attend a quilting retreat with some of my Quilting friends and wanted to have a better sewing experience than I’ve had in the past. You see, in the past, whenever I go on retreats, the lighting hasn’t been as good as it could be in my own sewing room at home. I was looking for a compact lighting solution to enhance my experience at retreat. The Daylight Company recommended the Smart Travel Lamp so I gave it a try. Let me tell you what I thought about it!

Bring all the things
Whenever I go on a sewing or quilting retreat, I tend to bring a ton of things. My Juki TL2010Q already takes up quite a bit of space, but I also try to think of every notion I might need and I bring lots of projects. I have even been known to even bring my own chair!
If I’m going to take the time and effort to pack everything up, and sew at a different location, I want to make it as an enjoyable experience as possible.
Space Saver Lighting
One of the things I find enjoyable about sewing in my own space is the lighting that I have at my home sewing station. As you may know, I have the Slimline 3 Table Lamp, which produces an amazing amount of light for my sewing space. I wanted to see if I could get a comparable lighting option for retreat. I thought it was important that this option be compact and lightweight, since I will already be packing a ton of things for the upcoming trip.
Did I mention it’s rechargeable?
One of my favorite features about the Smart Travel Lamp is that it is a wireless/rechargeable solution. I love that a single full charge can last me 5 to 6 hours. And because the included charging cable is longer than most cell phone chargers, I can easily plug it in when I’m ready for a recharge.
Adjustable Lighting Settings
Not only is this compact travel lamp super bright, but you can also adjust the level of brightness by simply holding down the on off button. You simply hold down the button to dim the light. This is great if you need another option besides full blast. I personally love full blast but it’s nice to have options.
