MODKID's Going Digital!

Yes, I know what you're thinking...."but you guys already have PDF patterns... those are digital!" Well, for the past 18 months or so since we started offering PDF patterns, we have been asked the same question repeatedly... "Will you ever offer your existing paper patterns as PDF?" And sometimes the question is even more specific, "Will you offer Kyoko as a PDF?" Our answer has always been the same, "Sorry, but we are keeping our paper and PDF patterns separate." But, you know what they say... never say never. The demand for digital patterns is increasing dramatically. I guess times are changing and we gotta keep up with the times!

We currently have 60+ paper patterns and this will take an eternity to digitize (no joke!). It's not a matter of pushing the "make PDF" button. There are a lot of re-formatting issues that go along with this process. We have to update photos, diagrams, and text on certain (older) patterns. We have to take our large pattern sheets and slice them up so that they can be printed on your desktop printer. And, even though every pattern has been tested thoroughly, things can always go wrong when reformatting, so all patterns will have to be re-tested before releasing them to the public.

This is why we have to take things slowly. We will only release 4 patterns at a time, and here is where we need your help: using the form below, please vote for your four favorite MODKID patterns... the 4 that you absolutely MUST have in digital format. I promise, we will get to all of them eventually, but it might be several months (or maybe longer) until we get to the bottom of the list, so we want to make sure we do this... not in alphabetical order, nor in original release date order, but in popular demand order. :)



If you need to reference the patterns before you vote, check our website here.
If you are having trouble using this form here on the blog, you can go directly to Google Drive and update it here.

Also, if you have any specific requests, questions, comments or just want to say "YAY, finally!", please leave us a comment below. We would LOVE to hear from you!! I am leaving the country for a couple of weeks, but when I get back I will share the results of this survey.

Thank you all for your help! I cannot wait to see what you all choose. :)
