    Hi everyone. I am new to the forum but have been making cards for 15 years. Unfortunately diabetes has affected my eyesight and when I do parchment craft I am finding it increasingly difficult to do piercing and cutting, even with new glasses. Can anyone recommend a desktop magnifying glass for this kind of work. I will need it adjustable so I can look down through it to work on the parchment. I have looked on the internet but it's difficult to see from a photo just how effective and flexible they are. Thanks

    I use an angle poise illuminated lens with a daylight bulb, 1.5 magnification and I do really intricate cut work with it, like the one in my profile picture cut from black paper. Maplins is the cheapest so far.
