Due to certain recent events,
I WILL NO LONGER OFFER FREE TATTING PATTERNS ON MY BLOG OR WEBSITE!!!
For many years, I have done all I could to freely share my love of tatting with as many folks as possible. I do, however, have a line that no one is allowed to cross. Copying my FREE patterns, putting them together with a staple and selling them is NOT acceptable. Carefully editing images of my work to remove the watermark/copyright mark then selling the images as your own work will NOT be tolerated. The offenders have been dealt with but I am still exceedingly upset.
In the future I will make available patterns that can be downloaded for a fee, but the days of sharing even the bare bone foundations of my work are at an end. The aforementioned patterns will only be available from either my Atelier website of a possible future Etsy store. It is with deep regret that I take these steps, but they are necessary to protect my work. Especially my OOAK (one-of-a-kind) pieces, which are to be the primary focus of my current and future tatting endeavours.
Thank you for understanding.
