"I told my friend that my applique days were over. Now I just LOVE to do handwork again"
“I absolutely love my telescopes! Just 2 days before the Road to California (where I purchased them), I told my friend that my applique days were over. Now I just LOVE to do handwork again, and I can see what I’m doing! They arrived in 10 days as advertised. I’m going to show them to my quilting bee this afternoon.”

"It makes a huge difference with soldering. I couldn’t believe it!"
It makes a huge difference with soldering. I couldn’t believe it! I could see areas so clearly. Especially big pieces with lots of corners.
"My eyes now see the close-up component work as well as the above bench level test equipment displays."
I have been enjoying my CraftOptics glasses with the now correct-for-me prescription. My eyes now see the close-up component work as well as the above bench level test equipment displays. WooHoo! I certainly appreciate how you stand behind your product.
I appreciate the quick turn-around time on these, too!

"I am no longer struggling to see, my quilting has improved, and the light is always in the right place."
Over the past few years, I have experienced an increased need for more light for quilting. A lamp helped for a while, but eventually it was not bright enough, and often was not in the right position, leaving shadows on my work. I did not realize how bad it was until I met Jeff from CraftOptics.
The CraftOptics glasses with DreamBeam have changed everything! I cannot believe the difference. I am no longer struggling to see, my quilting has improved, and the light is always in the right place.
There is one drawback, LOL. I now can see every imperfection that won’t matter to most people: seams that don’t match exactly, tiny threads poking out of seams, imperfect spacing of quilt stitches, etc.

"I am so delighted with the lenses because they are really making a difference to my ability to work at my art. I was getting to the point of wondering if I would have the physical capacity to continue into more longterm projects because of the neck, shoulder, back, and muscle-strain."
I LOVE THEM!!! Within an hour of first putting them on, my posture was better and various aches and pains began to quickly subside. I simply wouldn’t be without them now.
I’m a dedicated beader, so do a lot of encrusted bead stitching and some jewelry-making. I am so delighted with the lenses because they are really making a difference in my ability to work at my art. I was getting to the point of wondering if I would have the physical capacity to continue into more longterm projects because of the neck, shoulder, back, and muscle-strain.
This happened at the time when I was really developing skill and confidence in the art pieces I was doing, and the physical strain was beginning to cause me some anticipatory doubt and grief. Because of the nature of beading, it’s slow art, so there’s little to be done but go through the necessary stitching processes. The CraftOptics lenses have so successfully contributed to a better and more sustainable posture that I am hopeful of truly being able to work on a number of major projects.
I’ve found that I can also see easily to pick up my beads by elevating them to a suitable level that means I need only move my body forward slightly each time I need to pick up, so they remain in focus and I can easily see the holes for the needle to enter. Otherwise, I do look around the telescope part for other things appropriate to the prescription lenses themselves.
I carefully reviewed all the videos before the package even arrived, so was well-prepared to put them on and get to work.

No more neck pain from hunching or missing stitches due to lack of magnification!
I absolutely love them. They make a huge difference on the project I am working on. The canvas is very small and I was making a lot of mistakes prior to getting the glasses!

"CraftOptics worked with my optometrist to get me something that would let me continue knitting..."
“I have a pair of these! I have very severe astigmatism and Macular Degeneration. CraftOptics worked with my optometrist to get me something that would let me continue knitting, doing embroidery, and making lino-prints without stabbing or cutting myself. I love them so much.”

"Fabulous!!! I can't believe the difference."
“OMG – I got my CraftOptics as a gift to myself right before Christmas. I’m using them for the first time today stitching the binding on a quilt. Fabulous!!! I can’t believe the difference. Now I’m searching for handwork to do! Thank you, Bonnie Hunter! Best advice ever! And thank you, CraftOptics!”
