  • Magazines and patterns

    How do you organize and keep track of all of your magazines and all of the patterns? Is there any where I could get a digital copy of patterns to make it easier to stay organized?

    There have in the past been projects making boxes for the storage of magazines but I don't recall any declared an organizer. Direct your digital copy question to Bob Duncan he can probably answer it.

        Wood Dog, I've just looked at your link and it costs $37 to post one $34.95 DVD to the UK so I'll be giving those a miss thank you.

          Scan your pattern or artwork and save it to your computer.

            Someone is getting ripped here. I checked the site and as stated it is $37.00 US just for postage to the UK. On the USPS Site however they show a DVD package shipping rate to the UK of $16.95. $20.00 difference, Why ?

              My wife gets a catalog from harrietcarter.com They have plastic magazine holders that you can use to put your magazines in a 3-ring binder. The item # is c4189 They cost $9.98 for a pack of 50. If you look at the item at the site, a person could make their own out of some 1/8" ply. I bought the pack of 50, and some 3-ring binders at a flea market. For about $25 or so, it was extremely worth it to me to organize all of my magazines into a bookcase.

                  I use the three ring binder. I have one for of the mags and I keep them in separate books in order of the issue and the year. This works for mebut may want try something else.

                    I think there was just a discussion about the shipping issue and it was taken care of.
                    Shannon or Bob cleared it up.

                      I as well scan all of the patterns (digitize them) and then store each month's patterns in its own folder. I also make a PP presentation for each month stored in the same folder. Then I run a "directory lister" program and put that in a spread sheet. With them in the spread sheet, I can alphabetize by pattern name or directory. Works for me. (my 2% of a buck)

                        I would realy like to see an example of this. Is there some way for you to post an example or email me.

                          Send a message to Bob or Shannon about the shipping charges. There was a problem with the charges to Canada and they fixed it up.
                          The CDs are all on sale with a code that is in the latest issue. I would imagine the code would be good for any part of the world.

                              I scan the ones I want. That lets me use Inkscape or another program to resize the pattern to fit the wood or the frame available. I also keep a copy on a thumb drive so there is a backup.

                                I upgraded back in early winter. I got one with both a solid state as well as hard drive. I couldn't move over my Office 2010 because I'd bought it as a download (which was still functioning just fine for what I used it for) and I never switched it to subscription because of the cost. The old download...

                                I just picked up a couple of new heavy handled bowl gauges. 1/2 inch and 3/8 inch from two friends that have tool supply businesses.

                                One problem with upgrading was that many of the programs I use are now subscription based. That really frosts my butt I finally accepted the fact that I normally renew my software frequently anyway the cost difference is negligible.

                                I did not go with a solid state drive, probably...

                                Actually, I think mine is more than 10 years old. And what brand would that be? Remember who you’re talking to here about computers.
