Picking out Patterns

Quick tip for making pattern shopping so much easier: use your camera phone! I used to jot down the numbers for all the patterns I liked as I went through the book, then by the time I got to the cabinet, I had forgotten which items the numbers are for. That can get a little daunting when you want to but a couple patterns, but have several items written down. Narrowing your selection is much easier having the pictures in hand, without going back to the catalogue, or scouring the bins for the patterns, pulling them all out, choosing the ones to buy, then putting the others back. All in all, I’m so happy that I didn’t have a pen in my purse when I went shopping at Joann Fabrics last time! Necessity truly is the mother of invention…or more and more reliance on our phones.
