This is my first tip and I haven't seen anything like it so far, so I hope it's not a repeat.

Today I went to Joann's where they were having a sale on Simplicity--$1/each. I bought the maximum allowed-10. Rather than just throw them in a box, I set them up in number order and then looked through PR to see if any had been reviewed yet. I saved the reviews that applied to my purchases and wrote on each pattern envelope whether there had been reviews and how many. I also recorded the date of my search.

NOW when I go to start a new pattern I will read the reviews FIRST, not like I have been in the past--checking AFTER all the mistakes have been made!

Now to go back and do the same thing with the rest of my pattern collection--a monumental task.:))

I have just started cataloging my older patterns. Newer ones I automatically add to Pattern Catalog. Great feature of this site. As Debe says, printing out the review is also helpful before attempting the pattern.

If you list your patterns in your PR catalog, any patterns that are reviewed are highlighted! That's one of my favorite PR features!

I like this idea. We can also print out an especially good review and tuck it in with the pattern. Thanks for this tip.
