Don't you just love the PR pattern catalog? I use it almost every day. One thing I wish it had was a way to sort patterns currently being used or for use in a SWAP. For example, I planned some spring and summer sewing but kept forgetting a particular pattern, or where it was in my catalog. I then had a brainstorm. I categorized the spring SWAP patterns as "uniform" and now can search my catalog and pull up only these. When I am done with this series of projects, I can categorize them back as tops, or skirts, or coordinates. I tried to link to my own sorted catalog but it just takes the reader to the entire catalog. Try this in your own catalog and let me know if it is helpful!

I forgot I had a PR catalogue! What a clever way to make it more useful. PR is just huge and I keep finding out about things on this site. I am glad I found out about the Daily Digest - that's what led me here. Thanks for a great tip.

Merry G, Look on the left hand side of the screen, under "My Stuff". Find "Pattern Catalog" which is the 10th one down. Click. When the catalog opens, you will have to manually enter the patterns you have. I did this over 3 days when I began, and now it's just a matter of adding new ones occasionally. Let me know if this helps :-)

Is it helpful? Marec, I didn't know I had a catalog until I read this and found My Catalog on the left. This is step #1 for your tip being helpful!
