Database Update

I’ve got 255 charts/magazines/leaflets in the Orga­nized Expres­sions Needle­work data­base now. I was enter­ing a record for each chart in each mag­a­zine or book, but that grew old very quick­ly and I stopped after about 3 books.

This process isn’t near­ly as pain­less as using Read­er­ware, thanks to the absence of bar­code scan­ning or drag ‘n drop capa­bil­i­ties. I emailed the com­pa­ny ask­ing if they plan to add those fea­tures, but they haven’t responded.

That’s why I don’t have a val­ue assigned to 99% of the items. Some of these things are so old, too—how do I put a val­ue on some­thing that’s out of print? With “nor­mal” books, I can usu­al­ly find them avail­able used some­where online. That isn’t the case with needle­work items.

I don’t care about their val­ue for any­thing but insur­ance pur­pos­es, but that is an impor­tant con­sid­er­a­tion. I fig­ure I’ll prob­a­bly end up set­ting some stan­dard val­ue for leaflets and magazines.

Hap­pi­ly, I have man­aged to weed out 5 or 6 dupli­cate leaflets and a few pat­terns that I just don’t like anymore. 

I have stitch­ing stuff to send to a few of you. I promise I’ll send stuff out this week.
