So I frequently hop over to Amazon and pop “cross stitch” into the search and check out the newest releases for the month, or the last 90 days if I’m a little behind on checking things out, and I’ve been noticing more and more cross stitch pattern books are coming up as available for Kindle,and a few that were Kindle only, no print version to be found anywhere on Amazon.
I’m honestly a little confused by this new trend. Yes, I’ve been without a printer and tried to stitch a small pattern from my computer screen (and I have a 25″ monitor!) and that process is difficult. I can’t imagine trying to stitch something from a pattern on a Kindle screen, even if it is true to real print. I also saw some other needlework formats and even quilting pattern books in Kindle editions.
Maybe its just because I mark my place on my charts, highlighting finished areas and making notations in the margins of the page. I know not all stitchers do that, but I think a large percentage do some sort of place marker. I definitely need to have the paper in my hands and I usually make a working copy if I don’t want to write on the original.
Has anyone tried one of these pattern books on Kindle, and how did you like it?
Confused, but still stitching,
