If HomeSpun-Threads were a country...
I had to share this...it was found on a website called Sharenator.com. The reason I found it was because I was informed today that an eBay seller was selling my free patterns. So, I was doing a little research to see if anyone else was too. The seller was not only selling mine but some of SkiptomyLou.org's. Now, Cindy at skiptomylou is awesome and I'm a little tickled I ranked up there with her on the eBay scandal. My listings are gone but from what I can tell, the seller made a profit of about $20.45 on something that I give to all my readers for free, even if you don't actually read my blog. I just want you to have them. I want to thank my devoted reader who reported the fraud. As frustrating as it was, it was kind of entertaining reading the sellers response to my "catching her" in the act...
I have removed the pattern from sale. I am sorry
that I misunderdstood your pattern as is says that
it is ok to pass it on as long as your details
remain on it. I was only covering my costs for
time and ebay / paypal fees.
Thanks for clearing the matter up.
The patterns indicate that you can "sell" the items you make as long as you give me credit for giving you the pattern...not sell the pattern and give the customers a direct link to the free one I offer. Seriously?! Anyway, I understand everyone does their best to give credit were it's due but it's another thing to down right sell someone's stuff. This was my laugh for today.
Still I'm impressed that my blog ranks right up there with the Vatican...what does that mean anyway??? A rising empire? Maybe. Doubt it... : )
