OttLite® 13W Craft Space Organizer Review and Giveaway
Have you ever found yourself sitting in your craft room or craft space only to find that it’s dim and you can’t really see what you’re doing too well? Do you find it hard to see your stitches when knitting or crocheting? Maybe you just want to sit in your favorite comfy seat to read but the lighting in the room is not sufficient. Well, this happens to me more often than I care to admit. My eyesight isn’t all that great to begin with so I love the idea of having a nice, bright lamp to help me see better. This is why I absolutely LOVE my OttLite® 13W Craft Space Organizer!

I immediately fell in love with my OttLite® 13W Craft Space Organizer the moment I plugged it in and put it on. The bright light from this little lamp was just what I needed! Let’s take a look at all of the fabulous features:
Tons of Storage
There are multiple pockets ranging in different depths for you to store your skeins of yarn, hooks/needles, scissors and other notions. The upper storage area has larger, deeper compartments for bigger and taller items. The lower storage area has smaller rounded compartments for smaller supplies that you want to keep within arm’s reach. I love having my buttons, measuring tape, stitch markers, and other little craft items in my smaller trays and keeping the knitting needles, hooks, scissors and other larger items in the upper storage area. The storage areas fit so many things so you won’t have to choose what to keep in there. You can store it all!
Bright and Crisp Lighting
The light from the lamp is bright but the multi-position shade rotates to adjust the lighting so you get the right amount of light you need. The neck is sturdy but flexible so you can adjust the light angle over your projects. The bright light also helps with eyestrain. If you have horrible eyesight like I do and try to crochet at night with a dim light, it can be so hard to see your stitches and even the pattern you are trying to read. The OttLite®’s crisp lighting makes it so much easier to see everything that you are doing clearly, so your eyes will not strain as much.
Here’s the difference that the OttLite® makes. The photo on the left is what my project looks like on a regular day in my craft room. Notice that the stitches are a little more difficult to see and the colors are all blending together. The photo on the right is what my project looks like when I turn the OttLite® on. This photo was taken just a few seconds later but you can see there is a huge difference in the lighting and the colors of my project look much more clear and crisp. You can also clearly see the stitches.
I am in love with my OttLite® 13W Craft Space Organizer so much and I am so excited to share that love with you!

OttLites are the best products to help do crochet. I love both the magnification & fantastic lighting. Thx for reviewing more than one of their style so I can better decide which one of their many kinds I’ll be getting. I can’t wait to enjoy crochet even MORE, never thought that would be possible till I discovered all these babies, lol!
Always need light to work, read. Even better to not have to look for anything, organizer awesome idea!
I would use the Ottlite 13w Craft Space Organizer when I’m working on my Crocheting or Embroidery work.
It would also me useful for my Newest Hobby of Coloring in the New Craze of Adult Coloring Books – to hold different accessories as in Colored Pencils, Markers, Gel Pens, etc.
I would put the Ottlite on my Crafting Table to give me the Brightness needed to enhance my vision in the above mentioned Hobbies!!
T*H*A*N*K*S for the Chance to WIN!!!
I love your site! I would use an Ottlite to SEE what I’m doing on these dark days!
I would use the Ottlite for my crochet projects and I would put it in my craft room.
I would use it to help me see better while sewing. It would be wonderful in my art studio.
next to my computer … never enough lite there for handwork 🙂
I would use it for when I am crocheting and it would sit right on the stand next to my chair!
I would place it by my couch and use it when doing sewing and needlework, thanks!
I would put my crochet hooks, scissors and other crochet goodies. I would have it on the table next to my chair in the den. Thanks for the amazing giveaway.
I would love it on my side table then I could crochet there! Thanks for the chances!!
I would use it for my crocheting and cross stitch projects. And it would set on my end table next to my recliner.
On my end table for extra light while I crochet!
I would use the lamp in the living room when I crochet, and this will come in handy since I am blind in one eye and need bright lights to see better.
You asked for a comment Re: Ottolite – I would use this right by my crochet chair — always needing more and better light – the idea of an attached organizer is just a bonus
Our days this time of year are SO short and SO dark that I would use my Ottlite almost CONSTANTLY! Like you, my eyesight isn’t the best. I’ve stopped working with dark yarns because of the difficulty I have seeing the stitches. An Ottlite is in my wishlist!
This would be perfect in my art studio!
What a lovely idea! I wish I had an art studio 🙂 Good luck!
Love your blog.. Thank you
Thank you Tina!
I would love to have the OttLite Craft Organizer to put next to my favorite chair. With the cold, dark winter days, all that brightness would be a treat!
Theresa, this lamp is perfect for this time of year! I love how much light it puts out especially since it gets darker earlier now. Good luck to you!
I own an older Ott-lite and I too love it. Mine is a larger floor model with a bendable arm. I still find this limited in that it is hard to get the work in the light path without blocking the light to see it.
I feel like you can never have too many OttLites! Maybe if you win this one you can relocate the other one to a different part of the house 🙂
I would put it on the table beside me and use it to help light up my work as my eyesight is not the best at this time. Lights like this are great for this type of work
Carolyn, yes these lights are great for crocheting, knitting, sewing and all types of crafts. My eyesight isn’t all too great either so I love having extra light, especially on those dark winter days.
I would love this for my work table in my art studio! I do a lot of small miniature pieces, and this would be fab!
I would use it for crocheting and cross stitching. I would put it next to me by the couch.
I would put the light by my favourite chair and use the light for days that are overcast. These days I usually find depressing but with the light I could crochet away and not even notice the weather.
I would definitely use it when I am crocheting downstairs in our family room!!!!
My house is so dark, would love to have this on my side table! Thanks for the chances!
If I won the OttLite® 13W Craft Space Organizer I would put it either my living room, next to my crocheting chair, or in my craft room. I crochet in both places. The lighting in my house is so bad it would be so helpful seeing my work better.
I would put the OttLite next to my chair where I crochet and knit every day. Love your patterns! Thank you for sharing with us!
I would love to use this while crocheting
I have a desk in my sewing room…more like a counter where I stisch, cut crochet, make cards etc etc,,,I would put this Awesome Lamp there! What a blessing it would be having this Awesome light! Thanks for chance to win!
I would use it by my chair when i crochet.
I would definitely use it while doing cross-stitch. I’d have it on the end table right beside my chair. :o)
I would use it for my crocheting supplies and I would put it in my den where I have good access to it.
Like you, my eyesight is very bad. I’ve been looking at these lights wondering if they would help or not. Would love to win one to use in my craft room.
I would use OttLite in my craft room on my craft table, while making my knits and crochet crafts and of course as I make my dollhouse miniatures
I would use the Ottlite for crocheting and sewing and would put it next to my couch and on my sewing table.
This is a great giveaway and this is the exact lamp I have my eye on for a little while now for my desk at home while im working on my crochet
I would use the light right next to me when in the living room.
I have the floor model Ottlite and I just love it, really makes a difference when viewing what you are working on.
I have the perfect place in my art studio for this lamp! Right where I do all of my tiny stitches!
I love my ott lite and this craft one would be so nice to store all my st markers, hooks, scissors & more in.
This wonderful light would be a great asset next to my sewing machine. Even though I seem to have a bright light on the machine itself, this would improve my ability to see what I am stitching. Ott lights are certainly an added assistance to making sure the machine is doing what you need it to do — consistent terrific lighting plus the convenient storage area that is provided as well!!
I really need one of these – my eyes are old and I don’t see as well as I used to. Colors are getting difficult for me to differentiate – that makes for some hilarious combinations – I want to crochet for as long as my eyes and hands hold out, so Santa – bring me one of these!!! I love your website & I enjoy your blog. Merry Christmas
What would I use your OttLite for and where would I put it? It would be used for my crocheting and I would put it right by the chair I crochet in.
Oh how I could use some good lightening in my craft room. Looks like a great lamp! It would make a great present to me!!!
Wow! What a great idea! I would love this!
I would give this to my daughter who just went back to school – she needs a good light at her desk and then can use it for crafting, too!
I would use this for helping me see better in my art studio when I an sewing small stitches.
I would put it in the new craft room I am trying to organize. I do all kinds of crafts: crochet, cross stitch, plastic canvas, Kumihimo, card making and general crafting.
I would use my OttLite for my knitting & crocheting in my family room.
I would totally use it for all my handwork…crochet, knit, cross stitch next to my chair in the living room!
I would use the Ottlite for the table I make my stamps on! I already have one I use for crocheting!!
I would use my Ott LIte for Adult coloring, needlefelting,, drawing, painting and sock loom knitting. I would have one on my desk and one on my craft table.
I have wanted one of these lights forever! I love all the little places to organize stuff. I would use it in my little crochet corner I’ve been slowly putting together….complete with comfy armchair 🙂
I would use it on my sewing table! it’s a mess right now!
I would use it next to my lazy boy for more light and a nice spot to quickly grab my essentials!!!
Beside me on my couch table to use when I crochet –
