Index of mkm patterns

Posted on

Dear Anne and anyone with database skills. Would it be possible to sell indexes of the patterns created over the years for |MKM, as I have so many magazines in my collection it takes me a week to find the one I want. If somebody who has the time, patience and resources to create some I would gladly pay for them as I suspect would many other subscribers to this magazine. My magazine collection goes way back to the 1980s but I’m not sure if it is possible to catalogue all the magazines but since MKM became electronic and web friendly that might be possible? Anybody able to help me?

Hi – I’ve just seen this and funnily enough I’ve already started indexing all my knitting machine magazines. I’ve not used a database since taking my GCSEs 10 years ago so it took me a while to figure out what I was doing. So far I’ve indexed half my magazines then I plan to index the articles and the patterns and make them searchable by various factors such as technique used ladies’ wear men’s wear type of garment and make of machine. I know it will take me a while. I currently only have Machine Knitting Monthly and MKNews from 1986 to 1996 plus a few recent ones but I would be able to sort something out! When I started doing it I did think that other people may be interested in it!
