  • 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.

                  Hi Jim - A nice story regarding your son biting the bullet. Congrats to all!

                  Re your upcoming retirement. I wasn't really looking forward to mine but to be honest, apart from being home based due to this darn virus, I've gotten accustomed to getting up in the morning and deciding what I...

                  Well friends quite a week here on the prairie.
                  Long back story, but our son was adamant we get a fast response COVID test last Saturday, so we could attend an outdoor gathering of his girlfrigirlfriend's family. About an hour into the ATV and dirt bike riding, he got off the 4-wheeler and dropped...
