Maybe someone could just start a thread where we can post pictures/remarks??

It would be great to see tutorials that are worth our time and money. I'm about to try making a skirt from one and am wishing I could see what others have done.

I'm not sure if this is the right place for this thread either! Sorry

I agree, its troublesomeI have been reviewing them under "Other" or "No Pattern Used" and adding link and details in the review. Its not the best, but its what we've got :/ I suggested a while ago that Deepika consider adding "Online Tutorial" as a pattern company, but it wasn't ever added; I am sure she had her reasons. Even doing that is no perfect solution, because the quality and types of pattern vary so widely online. :/ And how does one search something that has no numbering convention? Then again I think the No Pattern and Self Drafted categories have the same types of problems.

2014 resolution: keep track of sewn yardage!! I'm subtracting fabric given away from my yardage in. Yeah!
In: 99.75 yards
Sewn: 77.5 yards

I'll try anything once :)

Please excuse my typos...sometimes it is harder to go back and edit on mobile than it is worth!

There are many excellent tutorials on the Internet and PR should have a category so they can be reviewed and recommended, or not.

Post the tutorial's link and then you may get the opinion of others before you start your project.

To add a quick link: Go to the page where the tutorial is located. Copy the http: address, then open the http icon at the top of your PR message screen. Paste the address, then when prompted type in an appropriate title. Easy-Peasy!

That's a great suggestion!

Maybe each tutorial will eventually get its own thread (the ones that people seem to make).

Why don't you just email Deepika and ask for a new thread. I've contacted her a few times, and she's always responded. :-)

There is a place here: under Web Site Talk there is a pinned topic for your Favorite Tutorials.

It would be nice if there was an index. It's an unneeded feature because you can search, but it would be nice for an index anyway.
