  • Patterns on this site

    I'm just making sure before I do it. I'm making a website and posting pics of the things I've made and want to post the patterns I have also, not to sell the patterns, but for potential cutomers to order the finished product. Is it ok or legal to post patterns for the purpose of selling the finished product resulting from the patterns? Don

    Only if you created the pattern. If it is someone else's pattern then no you would be copyright infringing. Not even a thumbnail of their pattern should be used unless you have written permission from the original designer in your hands.

      Can I cut the piece, post a pic of the finished product, not the pattern and display it as something I can sell?

        Yes of course... Unless the original designer states..."For Personal Use Only"

          You're going to be better off with an actual picture of what the finished product will look like than a picture of the pattern, anyway.

            I agree. Sue Mey, Sheila Landry and Steve Good have graciously allowed me to post a pic of their finished product of the patterns I have purchased or aquired from them on my site. I think it acually looks good. I guess since they are finished products and not line drawings. Don

              OK I have a similar question. since I'm just getting into this (and really enjoying it!) - can I sell items I've made from patterns either found here or in the magazine/books? such as at a local craft fair? Or do I need to keep everything completely original to sell it?

                MDB,
                Once again if the pattern you are working from says personal use only then you are prohibited from selling the item however if it does not specifically state that, feel free to sell away. Best of luck and I hope you wil share some of your work with us.

                tdub4ever, you should share your website with us. Would love to see what you have been up to.

                  A quick Google search for fretwork book stands showed pattern on Pinterest. Might be worth a look.

                  I agree that with fret work the grey areas may be useful but not needed for Intarsia and some others. It would not be difficult to use grey for some patterns and just lines on others.

                  Another thing to note is that not many have the ability, software or equipment to stitch patterns back...

                  This is only my opinion.

                  Hi Linda, My first reaction is it looks good, and my new toy craving started to twitch, but I thing it will be very limiting very quickly.

                  It is a small engraving machine and if that is what you want and need maybe OK. You are limited to 1/8 shank...

                  I still have some puzzle blades from Ben Fink. Once I run out of them I’ll have to ask Denny what he recommends for a substitute....

                  [QUOTE=Quartz43;n873079]No doubt, the large patterns are a real challenge. Not many have a large size printer. Going out and finding a place to do large scans and prints is problematic with the virus and many of us are older.

                  I wish they would not print the patterns with the grey. Pure...
