When you read pattern reviews, the type of fabric the writer used is a live link that says "see other projects made in this fabric." I want to do that, but not starting with a pattern, but with a fabric. For example, if I wanted to see what people had made with linen, let's say, how would I do that without trying to find a pattern someone had made with linen?

Click on "Review List" and then pick any pattern company (first column in the list). You'll be brought to a page of reviews for that company. At the bottom of this page is a series of pull-down menus where you can select any criteria to search. There's probably a better way to do get to this pull-down menu; perhaps someone else will share their method.

You can also type "linen" in the search box in the upper left-hand side of the home page. I tried both methods and got a wide range of reviews.

Or you can go directly to Advanced Search, on the left hand navigation bar very near the top, in the peach-colored area, above New to PR? and MY Stuff.

It took me forever to notice that link!

I knew there had to be a better way! I never noticed that link until you pointed it out. Thanks!
