Spectacle magnifiers - has anyone used them?     Reply with quote

I'm going to be doing a lot of travelling soon, between my house and my parents' house, staying with them for a few days every month. I want to take my stitching with me, and also to stitch on the train journey (6 hours - I need something to pass the time).

I use a magnifier when I stitch, and when I stitch at home I use a clip on magnifier attached to a table. I'm trying to find an easy to use alternative for when I travel. I don't really like the ones you wear round your neck, and as I wear glasses for sewing, I've been looking at the spectacle magnifiers - the ones you clip on to your glasses.
Has anyone used these, or does anyone know anything about them please?

I normally wear glasses also, but I had my eye doctor make me a special pair of eyeglasses just for cross stitching. It has, along with my -, a magnifier. I love it.

That sounds perfect - I'll ask when I have my next eye check-up. Meanwhile, I'm using a pair of magnifying reading glasses over my own which works well, but looks a bit weird....still, I guess you have to make some sacrifices for your art!!
Thanks for the advice/information - I appreciate it.
