Whether you enjoy needlework, mosaics, beading, or other crafts with small details, there various tools and accessories to help reduce eye strain. Lamps help improve the lighting in your crafting area, and there are various styles of craft lights to illuminate your work, from floor lamps to table lamps, to lamps that will clamp onto your embroidery hoop or hang from your neck! Some lamps include a magnifier to enlarge small details as you stitch, thread needles, or work with small objects.
If you often craft with small objects, tweezers can be a valuable tool to have in your craft area. They can be used for picking up and placing small beads, sequins, and other objects. Other useful tools in the crafting world include a pair of pliers, wire cutters, and a good pair of scissors.
While scissors can be used for quilting, scrapbooking, or other paper crafts, if you spend a lot of time doing these crafts, you should invest in a rotary cutter or paper trimmer. These useful accessories are a quick and easy way to cut your materials with precision for professional results. If you are using a rotary cutter, make sure to also use a cutting mat to help protect the surface underneath.
