As an avid sewist, I accumulate patterns like crazy. Physically organizing and storing them is no problem. However, having access to envelope information such as yardage requirements, notions needed, suggested fabrics, etc. when I find myself in a fabric store is a huge issue! About a year ago, I began working with Evernote to organize sewing patterns. Since that time, a program has become available for pattern organization that will magically find and import complete envelope information simply by entering the name of the company and the pattern number. They have a mobile app which makes the program much better for spur of the moment shoppers. I would love to see Evernote come up with a way (barcode reader, perhaps?) to import sewing pattern information from the Web. Right now Web Clipper can be used sometimes for this. Once I begin making an item, I chronicle the process using photos and Skitch drawings (and annotated photos) to record such things as pattern alterations, fitting issues, fabric choices and assessments...and much, much more. I would LOVE to hear from other sewing enthusiasts on how they are using Evernote.
