Foldi Fans

Daylight's Foldi Portable Lamp is a top seller for lots of reasons.   Here's why two very talented ladies are Foldi Fans...

Jak Heath, Freelance Designer in the Craft Industry

 "I knew when looking at the images of this lamp that I liked it but I hadn’t realised just how much I was going to like it until I had it in my hand. Whether traveling to a friends house or a craft club, this little sleek beauty will fit in your handbag neatly in its very own black pouch, and it is so powerful, it gives 8 hours life from batteries or you can plug it into a USB on your computer or laptop or even buy a plug adapter for it."

Natalie O'Shea, Stampin' Up Demonstrator

"My design focus is on clean simple lines. I love projects that use subtle colours and shapes in innovative ways.  And have to say, even though excellent light delivery and convenience come as standard, the Foldi's stylish looks and neat fold away design have the ultimate appeal for me."

Introducing The Magnificent

Ultimate flexibility and an all new innovative design come as standard with our MAGnificent lamp!

The MAGnificent (#D25050 RRP £89.99)

The attraction of this innovative new lamp lies not only in the fact it is perfect for all types of hobbies, craft and reading but also that it offers ultimate flexibility because it converts easily from a floor lamp to a table magnifying table lamp. Plus with the middle pole removed the lamp height is in-between floor and table so it is effectively 3 lamps in one!

The conversion can be made in seconds by simply removing the extension pole in the floorstanding mode.   The large 14.6cm semi-rimless 1,75X magnifying lens allows excellent vision for close-work activity, perfect for those who want to enjoy their favourite hobbies with no risk of tired or strained eyes.

Clare Donnelly, from our marketing team says: “We are continually developing our range of lamps to utilise cutting edge lighting technology.  The MAGnificent is a totally new design and innovation.  Judging by our customers’ first reactions, its set to be a firm favourite and best seller.”

Linda (Lou) Japp from Loving Hands charity group explains how keen knitters, crocheters and stitchers can get involved

Loving Hands Craft for Charity is a rapidly growing group of knitters, crocheters and stitchers who make items for charities both here in the UK and overseas.  We create everything from baby clothes to chicken coats and loads more besides.  We would be delighted to have Daylight followers join us in our quest to fill the needs of all of our charities (there is a list on our forum of charities we support - they have all been vetted and carefully chosen to meet our criteria - we only give items to charities who take them directly to where they are needed and have their own staff on the ground there to distribute them to the people or animals in need - we do not supply items to be sold in charity shops for peanuts either or stored for years in warehouses).
To help new mothers overcome breastfeeding problems 

We only make for charities that ensure the clothes reach exactly where they are needed

Join us by going to our website  and clicking on the wee box that says Forum - fill out the form when you click the register tab at top left of forum page and I will be delighted to approve your membership.  Current projects include making scarves at least 1.5metres long to be used to help the Children's Hospice Rachel House in Kinross by creating a scarf 7.5 miles long to stretch from Gateside in Fife to the Hospice in Kinross - knit, crochet or sew your scarves for that project. We are also making hats, scarves, gloves and single bed blankets for Operation Orphan's Keep a Kid Warm appeal to help them fill the boxes to go to Serbia for the children there.  There are always lots of projects and ideas on our forum.

Linda has also volunteered to become a Daylight Ambassador and is currently reviewing a lamp she has selected from the range of lamps perfect for knitters - her Daylight lamp report is scheduled to appear in March 2014

Love Nails Love Daylight! Guest Blog by Celebrity Manicurist and Session Tech Stephanie Staunton

 I've always loved nails, I started nail art when I was around 8 as a hobby and I've now been doing nails for over a decade. After winning nail idol 2011 and being hailed no1 in the country under 25 my career went from strength to strength.

I became a session tech and then a celebrity manicurist with clients I could only ever of dreamt of working with. I do nails for movies, tv, adverts, magazines, events, celebs, music videos and various other shoots.
Whether I'm in a hotel, studio, trailer or a home my Daylight lamp is a must have. It's minimises eye strain, headaches, doesn't cause unwanted reactions with my products and when I'm doing intricate nail art I need all the light I can get. I love my job but armed with the right tools makes it even better.

Inside Look: Daylight's Handheld LED Magnifiers

As part of the new StarMag range, Daylight Company have brought out a handy due of LED magnifiers to make working with details and fiddly crafts much easier! The duo, consisting of a small handheld magnifier and a large handheld magnifier (sold separately) are new on the scene for crafters needing a closer look at their favourite hobbies! So let's take a look at them in more detail! 
This little lighting solution comes with a 3.5X acrylic crystal clear lens (7.5cm/2.75") and two bright daylight LED's which will never need replacing! There is also a handy stand to allow you to position it on your table for hands-free magnification. This is the perfect craft kit essential to keep you enjoying your hobbies wherever you are, whether that's on-the-go or on your holidays! 

This larger handheld magnifier offers the same great features including the handy pop-out stand and bright daylight LED bulbs. However, this tool offers a high quality 2.0X acrylic lens (11cm/4") with a 4.0X inset lens (2.5cm/1") - greater magnification for all your crafting needs! 

Both of these products are made from high-quality, long lasting materials along with a stylish satin silver finish! And, with them coming in for less than £30 for both, they make a great Christmas gift idea! 

Jak Heath Reviews the LED Foldi

We popped an LED Foldi in the post to Daylight Ambassador Jak Heath to see how she got on using it for all her favourite hobbies! Here's what she thought...

There are times in a crafters life that you need to pack up a work station and just take it with you which can be done so that no matter where you are going you can whip out the craft and never be bored. I have always done this on my travels but I have often hit a stumbling block in the way of good lighting. It never seams to be in the right place in hotel rooms - Daylight Company have that covered for us! Not only is this lamp a God send but it is slick and stylish too.
I knew when looking at the images of this lamp that I liked it but I hadn’t realise just how much I was going to like it until I had it in my hand.
Whether traveling to a friends house or a craft club, this little sleek beauty will fit in your handbag neatly in its very own black pouch, and it is so powerful, it gives 8 hours life from batteries or you can plug it into a USB on your computer or laptop or even buy a plug adapter for it.
this is me popping it into my handbag and showing just how sleek it is.
