Trivia from your resident Needlepoint Geek

Did you know that you can gift an iapp?


I didn't, but how cool is that?  

For quite some time users have had the ability to gift albums and songs through iTunes, and of course users always have had the ability to purchase iTunes gift cards. Back in March, Apple came out with the ability to “Gift an App” on iTunes. This new “Gift an App” feature allows gift givers to gift their favorite paid apps for a more personalized holiday experience. Here's an article that was published in March that briefly walks through the steps on how to do this, but it’s really easy. Basically you select “Gift this app” through a drop down box, enter the recipients information including a message, and purchase. The recipient is then notified of their app gift and it appears in their iTunes account. Pretty cool.



So, if you are looking for  a virtual stocking stuffer I am pleased to suggest iStitches Volume One or iStitches Volume Two!  Both volumes are now available and are happily functioning on iPods, iPads and iPod Touch everywhere.  Each volume has 300+ stitches diagrammed and sorted both alphabetically and by stitch type.  Search by name, enlarge the diagram and all from the convenience of your gadget of choice - with you 24/7.





You may now resume your shopping, gift wrapping and general yuletide stressing over the hundreds of things to be done

Happy Holidays

What a wonderful idea for your favorite stitcher: a year-round useful gift. Way to go, Ruth!

These books are great. I bought both. It has saved me from hauling books to the ANG Seminar and they are handy when I travel. I even use them when I am home and in my stitching chair.

This was enough to make me turn off my blackberry and start using my i-phone exclusively. The books are great.
