      All I can say is that SSW work has a lot of free patterns in their magazine.

        I wouldn't consider the patterns in SSW "free." You do need to buy the magazine.
        There's several groups on MSN Groups that have tons of free patterns (there's a couple that that's there sole purpose). I'm surprised Mike and Sharon didn't mention them as I know they both belong to them.
        I have a bunch of patterns as well (of my own design) that I'd be more than happy to share, there's pics of the ones that I've cut in my album and if you're looking for something in particular, let me know and I'd be happy to share if I've designed it.

          Putting "free" patterns into one forum might not be a good idea due to copyright laws. If you check in the front of the magazines, you'll find text similar to: "Note to Professional Copying Services
          The publisher grants you permission to make up to ten copies for any purchaser of this magazine who states the copies are for personal use."
          That one's from SSW. Other magazines will be similar and some designers will put a restriction on how many items you can make to sell or give away, then you are SUPPOSED to buy another copy of the pattern. Some will tell you that you are free to make all the items you want but not to sell, trade or give away the pattern. I didn't say this but I have a copier in my office, a blueprint size copier in the front office and a boss who learned how to scroll from me.
          Copying free patterns and posting them on another site could also be copyright infringement unless you have the permission of the original designer. They might want you to visit their site to get the patterns.
          I think that if anything, you could post a picture of an item you made and include the link to the site without having any problems, unless it comes from that "other" magazine with the free pattern insert!
          We need your input Bob.

          That's my take on the subject.

            That's why we've been avoiding a section for free patterns. It's already been said that there are several other forums out there for free patterns--we just don't have time to moderate the whole forum to make sure there are no copyright infringements...because in the end, SSW is the one that is responsible for it since it is posted on our board!

            SSW does offer some free patterns...check the link in the left column. And I don't mind people sharing their origional patterns, but that is what e-mail is for <grin>

            Hope this helps!

              Woodbutcher, by free patterns I was thinking those that we ourselves have designed. I'm happy to share those. I wouldn't think of posting other's patterns on any forum.

                I can totally understand that! But our concern is that if we start a thread such as this, we have to moderate it to make sure that no copyrighted patterns did make it onto the board. Under copyright law, SSW, as the administrator of the site, has ultimate responsibility...and I'm already behind on my deadlines without taking the time to research all the patterns posted!

                If you want to scroll something out, post it in the readers gallery and say something like "If you like this pattern, please Private Message me and I'll e-mail it to you," that's fine, but I can't start a thread that is just ALL free patterns.

                  Besides, if you've got new and original designs, you should be submitting them to our design contest! I've updated the origional thread about the contest wiht some of the prizes available--such as an Excalibur EX21, a Sand Flee and Flying Dutchman Blades!!!!!

                          I think the fox was stopped at the border!
                          I have read cover to cover and it still elludes me.

                            Bob,
                            I think our posts crossed on the way in. Perhaps I wasn't clear, I'd be happy to share my patterns if someone either e-mails or sends me a private message. Didn't mean to imply that I would post them here. My apologies for the confusion.
                            As for the design contest, well, I'm also realistic, I'm sure that whatever does win won't be a portrait type pattern which is what I currently have. I do have a couple of ideas for something that might work, but with 10+ shows in the next 3 months, it's just not high on the priority list to get done at the moment.

                                Very well done, especially for your first. I too like the added detail.

                                I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

                                I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.
