Did I need these...no; well, maybe the bulb, but certainly not the other items. I unplugged my Ott Lite and when I plugged it back in it didn't work. So we tried to figure out how to take the bulb out to see if we could see anything (kind of like opening the hood of the car when it doesn't work...I look and know nothing) and the bulb broke in taking it out. I have a gooseneck table top craft Ott Lite, and I tell you, I don't know how to get it out easily. If you have one, and know, could you please tell me.

Anyway, I went in to Joann's with a 40% off coupon, and 10% off the total sale and found the light bulbs on sale for 50% off. I decided because I had the coupon, I should look at books (they often aren't on sale) and found the template set instead. Looking at the template set, it said to use a 28mm cutting blade--I have the small rotary cutter, but the blade is bad, so I had to buy that too. I stopped there though, so I don't feel too bad.

Here is the ottlite I have
If you know how to remove a bulb from this type of lamp I would love to know.

Mary, I don't have a clue about changing out the bulb but I will ask my quilting buddies. What fun to go shopping and with coupons! My hubby went back to work today after being off Sat. thru Tues. What day is this? That's how it feels. Ordinary routines get disrupted. But he's pretty much okay with me sewing when he's home. Yay.
