I have just started using Pinterest and I think it will be a brilliant resource for cataloging my patterns and video tutorials as well as following other sewers boards. The URL is just my beginning Pinterest. Hopefully, later this afternoon I will have more patterns on my pattern board. I have struggled using this program because I was using Internet Explorer as my browser. Now, I have installed the Firefox browser and I love it. It has a more user friendly Pin It button for Pinterest than Internet Explorer. The pattern shop on PR is also a quick way to gather pins too. If your pattern is pinned by using the PR pattern shop, you have quick access to all of the reviews of that pattern too when your click on that pin.

Here is Pinterests' description of what it is:

Pinterest is a Virtual Pinboard.

Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the web. People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes, and organize their favorite recipes.

Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people. Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests.

Thanks for your review! Does Pinterest give you a certain amount of space to use? If so, how much and do you find it to be enough space?

I have really been enjoying Pinterest too. It is a huge source of sewing tutes and fashion inspiration. Hope we cross paths. I think you can find me under "Bunny".

Thanks for this tip. I haven't quite figured out what to do with Pinterest and this is a great idea.

I have used Pinterest for this as well. It's a great idea. The only problem I've had, is when a particular thing you've pinned is taken off line, your lovely pin disappears. That's happened to me when I've pinned, say a dress from Anthropologie, and at the end of the season they post a different dress, suddenly my inspirational photo is no longer. And you never know when that might happen... But, in spite of that minor detail, it's wonderful.

I really like it also. I have not thought about putting patterns on there, but I sure find lots of inspiration!

Thank you for sharing this…I'll have to play with it, and see how it coincides with the Pinterest iphone app. What a perfect combo if it works for me! :)
