Good news, I’ve just got the Bar Code scanning feature working for DMC 117 threads…now to find the bar codes for the rest of them…..
The first two designs of the Roo rage, For you and For you too are now available in kit and Chart format.
The design fits within an 8″x6″ ( 20x15cm ) frame.
Uses 15 colours.
Contains Full Stitches, 3/4 stitches, backstitch and 1 French Knot, which could be replaced with a bead.
The colour chart provides DMC 6 strand, Anchor 6 strand and Madeira 6 strand values. Although DMC is recommended as it is what the chart was designed in.
The chart comes as a PDF with both the cover page (show above) a Colour Chart and a Black and White chart, each chart is a single A4 page.
For best results use Antique White Aida fabric, as it really makes the white of Roo pop out.
There is also a mirrored Pink Version available.
Charts cost $4.50AUS from http://www.etsy.com/shop/touchscreencraft
Kits of this design can be purchased from anywhere that carries the Classic Embroidery Range such as http://www.choicesembroidery.co.uk/acatalog/Classic_Embroidery_Cross_Stitch.html
Megan over at GenerationQ has done a round-up of apps for stitchers, Thread Tracker makes an appearance ( although it should be noted there is a iPad enhanced version of the App ).
Full details are here http://generationqmagazine.com/2011/08/scoop-app-attack-part-2-2/
I have added a new walk through/how-to for the Thread Tracker range with images on the Thread Tracker page. http://touchscreencraft.wordpress.com/thread-tracker/
New app in Store.
Thread Replacer 117.
This will give you the nearest five colours to any other colour in the DMC Article 117 colour range. Perfect for when a chart calls for a colour you don’t have, see if you have one that is close enough to go unnoticed? Not happy with a colour want it to be slightly lighter or darker?
If it saves you buying 2 skeins its paid for it self!

Touch Screen Craft is pleased to announce that its Thread Tracker C40 app for tracking Madeira Classic 40 Threads is available in the iTunes App store. Its a 99c/£0.69/€0.79/$1.20 depending on region.
Thread Tracker C40 is a simple application designed to help you keep track of your Madeira Classic 40 Threads, featuring all 355 colours in the Classic 40 range. The application allows you to set ‘ownership status’ of ‘Don’t own, Do own, On Bobbin and Need To Buy’ per thread. Each thread is presented sorted by Code, with the ability to view a detail page which tells you the number, a sample of the colour, allows you to view and modify the ‘ownership status’ and view and adjust the amount you own/need to buy. 4 buttons down the bottom of the application allow you to easily filter out/in based upon ‘ownership status’, allowing you to view only the ones you need to buy, or own easily. A search feature allows you to find threads by their Code.
