USB Inspiration Cards
Fill your library with innovation, inspiration,
and instruction. Stitchips contain a COMPLETE book, magazine, or collection in a credit-card-sized USB drive.
Stitchips make the perfect gift for the crafter in your family—and are excellent stocking stuffers (or just a really nice ‘because you care’ gift).
Pick your favorite titles.
Plug your stitchips into your computer’s USB slot.
And play. You’ll find a Rich Portable Document Format (PDF) which includes bookmarking, internal page links, and high-res images and charts (so you can print pages and/or sections as you see fit).
It’s that simple!
For best results, we recommend using Acrobat Reader (a free application from Adobe TM) as a desktop application for viewing and printing. You can also transfer the PDF to your tablet, smart phone, or iDevices and enjoy all of the same functionality using one of many apps (like Acrobat or iBooks in the iOS).

Some fun facts about stitchips (pronounced ‘stitch-ips’)…
The digital content on stitchips are ‘Rich PDFs’. That means that they are optimized but also high-res enough, so when you print a section or a pattern you will get a crisp nice-looking page. You can enlarge the charts because we have preserved the vector data. It means that the images will look good because we didn’t downsample them so much that they will become pixelated—even if you enlarge them up to 2 times (at the very least) of the full size. Rich PDFs also have internal linking—click on a page reference in the Table of Contents and it takes you there. We have also linked out to websites when appropriate. Every stitchip PDF has bookmarks to make navigation of the PDF easy. And because these PDFs were well formatted, they are completely searchable (try doing that with a paper book or magazine).
Stitchip PDFs are guaranteed to never get dog-eared. Their pages will never tear, or get stained by coffee, tea, or Diet Dr. Pepper. They will not fade or yellow when exposed to direct sunlight. Note: We cannot guarantee that your stitchip will never need dusting or get damaged. And when you print pages… the above guarantees are void for the printed pages— but not to worry, you can print new ones.
One very cool reason to invest in stitchips is so that you have something tangible for your favorite author to sign. Yes… using a Sharpie marker, your favorite stitchip authors can sign your stitchips—not possible with downloadable PDFs.
Stitchips are gluten free, no-cal, high in fiber content, and come in savory bite-sized packets (we dare you to buy only one). Stitchips are cloud friendly, tree friendly, and inspiration friendly—Not to mention user friendly! Stitchips are also LYS and small business friendly. We intend to offer our complete stitchips line to yarn and craft shops with a full keystone discount — so shops can benefit from this great new product and sell them to their customers as well. Because yarn and patterns work hand in hand!
Currently we have stitchips for knitters, crocheters, and weavers. But we plan on including additional crafting flavors in our stitchips selections in the near future.
Best practices for stitchips…back them up to your computer, be gentle when plugging them in and out of USB connectors, collect them all and try to get them autographed by their authors…but please avoid dipping them in sour cream, guacamole, salsa, or other condiments (sigh… nothing’s perfect).
