I am not exactly new to PR, but didn't know where else to post this.
I have a long list of patterns I would like to add to my Pattern Stash list, but can't find any way to do it other than one by one.
This is very time consuming. Is there a faster way?
I tried separtating numbers with commas, but that doesn't work.

I take it you're talking about the Pattern Catalog here on PR? I haven't listed any of mine in quite a while, and now use a spreadsheet to do that.

Hi MartiP,
The catalog feature on PR is designed to enter your pattern stash one at a time. This way, all of the relevant data can be entered for each pattern. But, your point is well taken that it would be good to have a way to file your pattern stash all at once. We appreciate this kind of feedback and will continue to make improvements to the site!

I AGREE!! One at a time is a PITA. The feature is a great idea and I use it ...BUT any improvements would be appreciated.

I think the biggest frustration is that you have to use the scrolling list to enter the pattern company. Especially when entering something at the end of the alphabet, like vogue. It would be much better to have the option of entering the brand or let the list react/scroll when you enter the first letter.

Kayco, in my browser you can type the first letter of the pattern company, and the drop-down list will scroll to the correct section. It saves a lot of time with Vogues and anything else at the end of the alphabet - worth a try.

I had 308 patterns when I entered my patterns in the catalog here on PR. I knew I had that many patterns because the catalog told me! It took me 1/2 day to enter them all but the end result is so worth it. I had my patterns organized at home in bins so I just sat at the computer with a section at a time. Actually, it seemed like it went pretty quick and it is nice to have an online source to the patterns I have.

I gave up on the PR pattern catalog. I started to enter them once, but kept forgetting to continue. Besides, all my patterns were/are already in my sewing spreadsheet.

I did make the effort to add all my patterns to Pinterest. Now I can LOOK AT all my patterns, and I have them categorized, too.

Here are my Pinterest Boards.

I use the PR Catalog because it links to reviews. I also use Pinterest, as do you. Here are mine: my Pinterest boards
