If you are a High Tech toy person like I am, here is how I have all of my patterns and requirements with me at all times!

I have an HP iPAQ pocket pc and of course a home pc. I downloaded a trial of Office 2007 and one of the programs that is included is OneNote. I scanned the net for pic and fabric requirement and I pasted them in OneNote. If I couldn't find the info, I scanned the cover and made a table with all of the requirements. Once they were all listed in OneNote I then copied all of the pages into the OneNote Mobile tab and TaDa, all of my patterns and such are listed on my pocket pc!

I'm not familiar with one note, but am in the process of putting all of this into a spreadsheet that I can download onto my Palm. I'm wondering if I can link pattern photos, since I already have scanned all of those.

I don't have a PDA, but I have an MP3 player that will also hold photos! I'm going to use this idea, but won't be able to make a table, only the scanning or pictures - but even that will help!

This sounds like a cool idea. Unfortunately, I don't have a PDA, but if I did, I'd be using this technique.

I have a spreadsheet of all my patterns on my home pc - scanned in line drawings, notes from PR reviews, my notes, etc - hadn't thought about my PDA ...!
