A message from Hermione

There is not a lot of money in designing quilting patterns. I will not get rich doing this for a living. I'm okay with that :) I'm not okay with people who steal from me, either to avoid paying for something they want for themselves or worse, use stolen patterns to generate income for their own businesses.

It is not okay to copy files, photocopy patterns for friends or borrow patterns from other quilters. It is not okay to digitise a pattern that you bought on paper. Every time that happens it takes me one step closer to having to close my business.

I have spent a lot of time and effort making my work available to the public. I love this job and I love being able to work in this amazing industry but I won't be able to continue if I don't get paid for my work. Please remember that I'm just one person trying to pay my bills doing something I love and supporting you in your businesses by providing a quality product at a very reasonable price.

In the big scheme of things, an edge to edge quilting pattern doesn't cost very much - you only have to pay for it once, then you can use it to generate income in your business forever.

I thank you for supporting my designing efforts and I hope you will help me stamp out copyright violations when you see them happening. Together we can keep our industry healthy and vibrant.

Best wishes and happy quilting,

Hermione Agee.
