Cutting up

How many pattern or idea books do you have?

How many times do you try to use them and get frustrated because the book won't stay open?

During a class I recently took, the instructor mentioned that she has her pattern books re-bound with a coil binder.  

ATTENTION:  Dear Publishers, please take note of this and make our lives a little easier.  It is not that difficult of a thing to do.  We would gladly (okay I would, for sure) pay a teensy bit more to have a book that was easy to open and work from.  

Until then, it only costs a couple of dollars to take the book to a large office supply store or other printing business and have them whack off the unyielding stiff edge and put in a nice user friendly coil.  

Well worth it in my book! (sorry)


  1. That's a brilliant idea Dina! I have one of those machines at work, never even thought about it before. Thanks for the tip!

  2. Dina, I can't wait to start doing up all the books I have collected this past year. It's going to make things SO much easier to deal with when it comes to doing a pattern out of a book! No more doing photocopy sheets so I don't have to fuss with a book! :)

    I was so glad our teacher told us about this!

  3. Cool idea. I usually just copy the pattern I am working on because I mark it all up while I am working.
