Orenco Originals for the Artful Needleworker !

Orenco Originals is very happy to announce that our PDF digital charts are now 100% compatible with Pattern Keeper. Additionally, all of our digital charts are currently 30% off this month!

More and more stitchers have discovered the convenience of working with PDF digital charts and using a progress tracker app such as Pattern Keeper.

If you’re not yet aware of Pattern Keeper, we’d like to encourage everyone to check it out. And if you are already using Pattern Keeper, make sure you’ve updated to the most recent version to make sure you’re getting all of the latest features and full compatibility with our digital charts. Here are some of it’s key benefits:​

  • Chart symbols / thread keys are imported automatically.

  • Highlight symbols to see where to stitch. When highlighting, the thread number of that symbol is shown. There is no need to flip back and forth between the chart and the legend.

  • Mark finished stitches. Select easily by swiping horizontally, vertically, or even on the diagonal. It is also possible to mark an entire 10 by 10 square. If you import a chart that already has annotations in it, we try to import that as your current progress. Finished stitches are displayed in color, making it easy to navigate and compare with your stitching.

There is also a very helpful Facebook Page that you'll want to check out as well.

Here is a link to a video review of Pattern Keeper by a fellow stitcher, Michelle (AKA The Giddy Stitcher)

If you don’t use Pattern Keeper our digital charts still provide many advantages, such as:

* You get the charts as soon as you checkout and download them. No waiting for the mail.

* You can work with our digital charts from your Laptop, iPad or other tablet, and zoom in as much as you need to better see the grids and symbols.
