I must be a geek too, i love this idea!  I usually keep the plastic zipper top bags that sheets come in to put my patterns in.

My actual patterns are stored in a file cabinet, in hanging files, grouped by maker. All however-many fit in one drawer, more or less. The ones that I've cut and can't manage to get back into the envelope (I usually can, surprisingly enough) go into freezer-sized zipper storage bags and then flat in a different file cabinet drawer with the oversized pattern envelopes, self-drafted patterns (which are usually craft or freezer paper) and some other random sewerly stuff.

Just knowing I have the pattern is the hard part! Actually finding it isn't so bad.

I too have bought a pattern only to find that I had already bought it, I have also ordered books only to have both arrive a few days apart. If you love it, it keeps calling to you. I should do something like you have done, only I'm not computer savvy, so I'll admire you for your system.

This cracked me up because we use Filemaker Pro at my work...how nice to be able to run a search for "mid-length skirts" as opposed to "victims of sexual assault by their partners in fiscal year 2006"!

Beat me to it, jungrrl. It's not like database programming is something peculiar to Macs. Quite the opposite, if anything.

And annacharlotte, yipes! Yes, much much more fun!

I was just about to ask if you would share the filemaker DB so that I could go through and organize my patterns too - but then I realized if I were more organized, I might feel like it was OK to go out and buy more patterns just 'cause I'm so darned organized.

I'm totally jealous though. What an awesome idea.
