"And for my Countries quiet, I fhould like,
That Women-kinde fhould ufe no other
It will increafe their peace,
enlarge their ftore,
To ufe their tongues leffe, and their Needles more.
John Taylor, "The Needle's Excellency", 1631
about free patterns and copyrights -
Free patterns are gifts from their creators to the stitching world.
They are meant for personal use only, and the creator does NOT give away the copyright with the pattern. If you like
free patterns (and who doesn't?!?), share the link to the original creator rather than copying and sharing the
pattern, so credit (and possible later business!) goes where it belongs. Help protect intellectual property
rights, so all those independent designers can keep designing!
