Frequently Asked Questions

How do I search the database?

There are many ways to search the database. If you are searching for a particular pattern with a recognized name, you just type it in the ‘Name’ box. You don’t have to check anything else on the page if you know the name – just scroll down and click ‘Search’. If you don’t find it, the pattern may not be there yet. Sometimes there will be more than one entry for a particular pattern name. For instance ‘Lily’. At the present time, if you type in ‘Lily’, you will find 6 thumbnail images and names of patterns in the database. There is ‘Lily and Vase’, ‘Lily - Adams’, ‘Lily - Wood & Challinor’, ‘Lily and Rose’, ‘Lily of the Valley’, and ‘Water Lily’. Click on a picture if you want to go to the page that gives specific information regarding that pattern. Click on the back arrow of your browser to return to the thumbnail list. You can click on ‘Return to Search Page’ at anytime.

On the Search Page, you can type in the name of a series such as Medallion Portrait Series, scroll down and click ‘Search’. All the patterns entered in that series will appear as thumbnails with title and maker information on the left side.

If you are looking for a pattern beginning with “A” or “The” in the title, the article will appear after the other words. For instance “The Gem” will be listed as “Gem, The”. The easiest way to search that type of pattern is to just type in “Gem” in the Name box. All patterns will come up with that word regardless of where “The” is given in the title.

If you want a broader search – or just want to play around and see what you can find, try different words in the ‘Name’ line. Type in the word ‘Dog’ and see what a variety of patterns you find with that word in the title. If you want to find only dogs in Children’s patterns, click on ‘All’ under ‘Category’. Click on ‘Children’s Subjects’, then scroll down and click on ‘Search’. You do not have to choose a sub-category under the main Category although you can if you want to.
