The crochet patterns on this website - both those for free and those for sale - are my designs, which means that you are welcome to make and sell the finished products as much as you would like. What you cannot do is resell or give away (in other words, "share") copies of any of these patterns (or any other patterns you may have purchased or downloaded from anyone else). That's called copyright infringement and it is against the law. You know that big announcement at the beginning of videos, etc. that says copying is stealing? Same thing with patterns.
Please respect the hard work designers put into their patterns by directing your friends who want copies to our websites. Thank you!
Tested & Approved Patterns
All of my patterns have been tested by crocheters other than just me. This is such an important part of making sure (as much as possible!) that the patterns I publish are error-free and easy to understand that I wanted to find a way to highlight that fact. And since a picture "is worth 1,000 words", well, I came up with this graphic which you will see on in my pattern listings.
What does it mean? It means that before I offer a pattern for free or for sale, other crocheters have used it to create their own version of the finished article. As much as I wish I could say that the pattern is certified 100% free of any mistakes, I can't do that as things do sometimes still get through. BUT it does mean that several other sets of eyes have proofread the pattern, several other sets of hands have followed the instructions successfully and that IF you do find an error, it will be a minor typo or something.
As always, if you purchase one of my patterns and have a question about any part of it, you can contact me via this website or directly using the email in the pattern.
If for any reason you are not happy with your finished item purchase, please contact me within 7 days of receiving your items. I will return your payment (less S&H) or give you store credit (your choice) once the items have been returned to me in their original condition.
Please allow sufficient time for your package to arrive. In the United States, you can check the delivery confirmation number to find out where your items are and a projected delivery date. Remember that even Priority Mail is not guaranteed and can take a week or even more to get to you. International orders can take anywhere from 1 - 3 weeks to arrive. If your package is lost by the post office, I will offer you a choice of a refund or replacement but I will not consider a package lost for at least 30 days after shipment.
PLEASE NOTE: Refunds are not given for any digital items you may purchase.
Shipping costs are actually Shipping & Handling costs. Therefore, they include not only the postage fees but cover time and packaging costs.
I absolutely DO combine shipping when you order more than one item. I will send you a refund if you end up paying significantly more than necessary.
Tangible items are shipped USPS First Class Mail unless stated otherwise in the listing or you select another option during checkout. You will receive an email from me within 24 hours after purchase confirming when your item(s) will ship.
Delivery confirmation is included on all domestic shipments.
International packages are sent First Class International which does not include tracking, but DOES include delivery confirmation to these countries: Canada, Australia, Belgium, Brazil, Croatia, Denmark, France, Germany, Great Britain and Northern Ireland, Israel, Netherlands, New Zealand, Spain and Switzerland.
Please be aware that as the seller I do not pay for any applicable duty, value added taxes (VAT) or import consumption taxes charged to you by your country. The recipient of the merchandise will be required to pay the duty or VAT upon delivery. Due to import duty valuation adjustments and currency valuations, I am unable to provide an estimate for duty or VAT.
I am not able to mark international packages as "gifts" because it's illegal for me here in the United States. I will mark "merchandise" or "other" and the value will be the amount paid for the item/items not including shipping costs. Thank you for not asking me to break the law!
