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.

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. :-)

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.
