This is Brad and I’ve hijacked another page on my wife’s blog. I convinced a manufacturer to make an LED bulb to fit my wife’s Brother PQ1500S and her Brother XL-3750. As it turns out, these two Brother machines use a pretty standard home machine screw-based bulb (110 Volt, 15 Watts, 7/16″ screw), so the replacement LED (2.6 watts) will also fit many more machines as well!
Here is a comparison of the light readings. 1190 vs 1590 Lux, and more of a true color for your fabric with the cool white LED.
I was searching for a bulb to fit the Brother PQ1500S, but if your sewing machine takes a 110V/15W 7/16″ screw-base bulb, this LED may fit your machine also. The important thing to note is that the LED is about 2″ long, which is a scant 1/4″ LONGER than the incandescent bulb that originally came with the Brother machines (it is almost 1-3/4″ long). So you will have to check to make sure your specific machine has that extra 1/4″ clearance to accommodate the longer LED bulb.

I am able to sell these bulbs at the same price as the Featherweight bulbs! The bulbs are $10 each or 2 for $18, including free shipping in the US. Any additional bulbs are just $8 each. There are also a few older machines, like the Singer 99K, that could be ordered with a light socket that takes a larger 5/8″ screw base. I also have those available at the same price. Please email me for availability if you need one (Brad@stitchallthethings.com)

PLEASE BE SURE YOU DON’T Have some sort of spam filter on that prevents you from receiving emails from Brad@stitchallthethings.com. I have a couple of recent orders where my emails just bounce back when I try to respond. That leaves you wondering if I didn’t get your order, and it leaves me unable to contact you. For example, “carolina.rr.com” apparently uses spam filters to reject all my emails.
