These are by far my greatest beading tool.

“I’ve been using them for a couple of years. These are by far my greatest beading tool. Without them I could not create my art at all. I can see the smallest of details whilst I’m beading.”

What a difference they make. They are comfortable, fit perfectly, not too heavy and I can see the smallest details sitting in a better upright position.

I just received my Rx CraftOptics telescopes with the light. I was working on a quilt, so I immediately put them on to try them. Without any adjustments at all, I sat for and hour and a half using them to finish a piece of applique. What a difference they make. They are comfortable, fit perfectly, not too heavy and I can see the smallest details sitting in a better upright position. I am so pleased. They are everything I expected and more.

I probably tried almost every magnifier/light combination, not one worked well until I came across Craftoptics

“In my quest for better close-up vision for my hand embroidery projects, I probably tried almost every magnifier/light combination available. Not one worked well until I came across the Craftoptics Telescopes at a quilting show and I decided to try them.

They have turned out to be an invaluable tool for me. Not only am I able to see the detail of the stitches on my hand embroidery and sewing (making the stitching more precise), I have also found a myriad of other uses for them. Whenever I have the need to look at something in detail (such as very small print), I grab my telescopes and put them on. I always have a clear, detailed view and enough light!”

Huge difference in my soldering success!

Love my CraftOptics! Huge difference in my soldering success! It’s so much easier to make a joint good and tight when you can see it clearly.

Probably one of the best investments a serious beader can make

Not only do these magnifying lenses ease eye strain by giving you a better closeup view of your beading, they might also reduce the aches and pains in your neck, back, and arms that come from holding your beadwork in an uncomfortable position!

They make my quilting and beadwork a dream!

I love CraftOptics because it helps with my eye problems, and the light, along with the telescopes allow me to enjoy my handwork again so it’s a win-win. I never realized how much I hadn’t been able to see. This is all thanks to your product and I’m grateful.

I'd like to introduce you to a tool that can change the way you look at your embroidery

I’m always excited to share products that I think can improve the embroiderer’s life, especially when the improvement has to do with seeing our needlework better. I’d like to introduce you to a tool – a tool that can change the way you look at your embroidery. And I mean that literally!

Craftoptics are an incredible tool for people who do detail work – any kind of detail work – but they are especially wonderful for those of us who have vision problems and need to use magnification when doing embroidery.

I am thrilled beyond belief at how clear and precise my vision is!

I am thrilled beyond belief at how clear and precise my vision is! After a lifetime of poor vision (I went into glasses at the age of 6) this is thrilling, and making my life much easier. Plus after my recent (and continuing) bout of extreme neck and back pain, it is once more a joy to sit at the bench.

I can't believe the difference they make in my vision.

I received my new CraftOptics in the mail yesterday and started using them last night when I was bead weaving. I can’t believe the difference they make in my vision. I’m an 80 year old male and I had gotten to where I could only work with the tiny seed beads for a short time before I was experiencing eyestrain. I love the fact that I can look up over the telescopes and be looking through my regular glasses prescription. I’m already sharing this good news with fellow bead weavers. Oh, yes, and I have the light attached and that’s great because wherever I’m looking, the light is there!
