I think advances in technology should actually make life easier.
I sometimes feel that being so 'available' and 'connected' actually makes life a little harder. People seem to get annoyed if they have emailed/called/text you and you haven't responded within a short time frame.
But what if you are in a movie, out with friends or enjoying some quiet time with your family and *gasp* don't have your phone with you, or you have chosen not to check it.
For a brief time a few years ago, I didn't have a mobile phone and I felt, well, liberated.
Don't get me wrong I am a total tech geek - I love to know how things work and I love to have the answers to most questions I can ask right there are my fingertips.
It's just that there are times when I sort of wish things could be a little more simple.
Anyway I digress...
I have to say this is an example of technology making things easier, much easier in fact.
|Perched on my sewing table the iPad can be of great assistance - technology at its best!|
But rather than have to hunt through the pattern boxes and piles of projects on the go, I instead turned to my iPad.
The Colette tutorial on installing an invisible zip is simple, clear and easy to follow.
It makes putting in an invisible zip hassle free - even for those of us a little terrified of doing it (though the fear is abating!).
What is your favourite tech tip that helps you with your craft?
Is there a website or an app that you want to point us all toward...
PS - I've sort of dropped off the KCWC wagon this time - life got in the way - in a good way though.
One of the projects, other than enjoying the sunshine and spending time with my family is a bit of a sewing room makeover! Hooray!!
