It has been brought to our attention that a vendor at the Calgary Expo last weekend was selling Fandom In Stitches patterns.
These pilfered patterns had identifying marks removed that would have indicated they were free patterns from our website and our designers.
Fortunately for us, members of our quilting community are everywhere. A diligent fan reported the theft to the expo and we are currently following up on that report.
We'd like to give a Big Thanks to the Calgary Expo for looking into this issue.
Just a reminder, because it sadly seems to be needed:
Fandom in Stitches DOES NOT SELL PATTERNS and we DO NOT allow our patterns to be sold.
At the top of every Fandom In Stitches page you will see:
All patterns on this site are derivative art, free for your personal & non-profit use ONLY.
Patterns not to be used for distribution, resale or manufacture.
We are a community committed to sharing awesome quilts and not to squeezing money out of fellow fans.
If you are reading this and you are the person that committed this act of theft against our generous Designers and our quilting community: Don't be a jerk. These patterns are free for all of fandom. They are not for you to steal and sell for profit.
To the rest of our community: Thank you for your support and your Constant Vigilance.
