Questions & Answers

I know there are a lot of designers out there and a variety of patterns for purchase or for free. I strive to learn more each day as I grow as a designer and build my skills through active feedback.

Questions and Answers

How do I know the patterns here are actually good?

I do my best to have all of my patterns tested and edited before publishing. But I’m also human, and so are my testers.

If you think you’ve found a mistake in one of the patterns please message me.

I know when you have a craft question, the answer is needed quickly. I may be in a different time zone or with my children at the time you first reach out. I will get back to you when I am in the office.

Can I sell items I’ve made from your patterns?

You are welcome to sell the items you make, but in no way are you allowed to reproduce, sell, share, or distribute my patterns. The images contained in the pattern and online are NOT to be used to sell your finished item. Finished products are to include a link to my website or pattern link in the product listing.

Can I use your tutorials to sell items?

You are welcome to use my tutorials to create products to sell. Of course, it’s loved and appreciated when you include a link to my tutorial/pattern in the product listing.

What payment methods are accepted?
