Creating Custom USB Drives for Business Cards

I recently returned from Common Threads, a Baby Lock sewing event in St. Louis, Missouri. It’s my favorite event of the year (here are some of my thoughts from last year), and I’m excited to share more about it soon!

But first, how cool are these custom USB drives?

I ordered these from USB Memory Direct, and they have so many styles of flash drives to choose from. This is the Butterfly style, which keeps the USB tucked into a handsome leather loop with a metal keychain.

I selected a few files that I wanted to load onto the USBs to hand out in goodie bags at the Common Threads sewing event, like my digital patterns, a digital copy of my coloring book, and a review copy of my new t-shirt quilting book!

Loading the files couldn’t have been easier. I simply e-mailed them to Chelsea at USB Memory Direct, who pre-loaded them onto all of the flash drives for me. Isn’t technology amazing?

I think they felt right at home in the goodie bags for all of the attendees! My green USB is pictured in the top center of this awesome photo by Heidi.
