I have an ott lamp, or at least an ott bulb, one of those that approixmates real daylight and is good for crafting. Well, forget that. I've recently decided that a headlamp is way easier to use for crafting. I asked J. for one for Xmas for reading in bed, and I've found that I also like it for hand-sewing and other detailed crafting as well. You can angle the lamp to where you want it to point, and this one has different brightness settings, and you can have it set to use one lamp in the middle or two on the sides. It's very useful. The headband is adjustable. I think the one pictured here is the one I got. Only about $30 retail.
