Carson manufactures a number of hands-free magnifiers for crafting and needlepoint. They are often referred to as “around-the-neck” magnifiers because they are positioned just below the chest of the user and are suspended by a cord around the user’s neck. These “around-the-neck” magnifiers provide the user with free use of both hands, which is ideal for needlepoint. Caron’s LumiCraft (model LC-15), MagniFree (model HF-25), and MagniShine (model HF-66) are all examples of “around-the-neck” magnifiers. Visit Carson’s Handsfree Magnifier section to view more products.
Another type of magnifier that is designed largely for crafts is the MagniCraft Magnifier (model MC-10). The MagniCraft has magnets that are embedded into this Bar Magnifier. This works very well for needlepoint patterns. The user can place the pattern on a metal stand. The Bar Magnifier’s magnets will hold the pattern in place and magnify the appropriate line on the pattern. Visit the Sheet and Bar section to see all of Carson’s Bar Magnifiers.
