I am a database administrator by day and sometimes my geekyness morphs with my craftyness and I get ideas like this
This is a database that would catalog all your patterns and allow you to have pictures of the completed garments, add notes and have the pattern stats all at your disposal. For one you would never have to purchase a pattern more than once because you would know by searching for the pattern number before going to the store if you already had it. It would be even better as an iPhone appt so you could actually search while you're in the store. I just read on Yahoo that some guy made over $600,000.00 on an iPhone game, I'm sure there's not that many geeky crafters out there but I'm just wondering.
This is strickly in the development stage and I'm just wondering if anyone would actually use it. I am also going to develop one for needlecrafts and fabric stash management, so that you could catalog your fabric/yarn stashes.
I would really appreciate your input and any development suggestions you might have.
That's enough geek for today, now I'm going to go cut out that suit.
I almost forgot to mention, the needlecraft group at the library was so much fun, I apologize for not having any pictures but I forgot to take my camera and next time they meet I plan to take the day off from work so I don't have to rush off. Thanks for all your helpful suggestions ladies, I really enjoyed the meeting. People with hobbies rock!
