    Hi Karen,
    Have you heard of It syncs with your ‘e-wares’ (for want of a better word) so it doesn’t matter what time of night and day someone makes a purchase, it’ll send out the file to them once they’ve made a purchase! Pretty nifty AND saves you the stress of having to make sure you get back to everyone in your precious free time 🙂

    I’ve used it from a customer perspective and it works like a dream.

    Just bought it – going to try this technique on the colette beignet skirt! Fingers crossed :)!

      Question – is it possible to read this by viewing only a single page at a time? The “double page” format is annoying small on my iphone and I constantly have to resize it each time I turn a page. Same for my computer – I like to refer to each page individually when sewing but cant figure out how to view just 1 page at a time.

    I’m working through your methods. I wonder about the width of the strips? Cut 3/4″ wide and folded they don’t end up 1/2″ wide? More like 3/8″? I’m doing a test first but wondering if my original strip should have been wider?
