Copyright infringements…

I was alerted today by an eagle-eyed fan who spotted what appeared to be one of my designs for sale on Etsy, being sold by a seller based in China. I’m sad to say that it does appear to be one of my most popular designs with only a couple of very tiny changes made to it. To add insult to injury, it is one of the designs I offer free of charge!

The person who contacted me wasn’t sure whether or not I had given permission for this person to sell my designs on my behalf, and decided to let me know just in case – I am incredibly grateful that she did.

I wish to state here and now that NOBODY has permission to sell ANY of my designs. If you ever see any of my designs for sale anywhere other than directly through me, please let me know immediately, as they are infringing my rights as the designer of the charts.

It’s this kind of flagrant abuse that has been the cause of several designers actually quitting designing charts at all.

I have contacted Etsy about the matter and hope to have if resolved swiftly.

If you think you see any of my designs for sale anywhere else, please do drop me an email and let me know, as it is only through the vigilance of others that this kind of thing can be stopped.

As always, I can be reached at the following email:

My thanks to you all for your continued support.
Happy stitching!
