||Sewing is the major task in the fabrication of textile articles and footwear; it is a cause of considerable visual stress. Typical visual tasks in sewing are described. Working posture, the distance of the workpiece from the worker and the direction of incident light are analysed. Sewers should be able to vary freely the direction of lighting, even directing light parallel to the line of sight. Present task-lighting fixtures do not meet this requirement.
