I have someone contacting me through my blog asking for the pattern for a doll I crocheted (L'il Buster). I have informed her where she can purchase the pattern (from Kathleen Early- easily found on the web) and kindly declined to provide her with a copy. Her e-mails come through in Spanish and she says she has the pattern but it's blurry. I asked her if she has a photocopy of the pattern and if so, that isn't permissible. I also told her I will not provide her with another photocopy.
I keep getting comments from her and I've had to mark her latest as spam, in order to stop the conversation in its tracks.
I will not - ever - provide anyone with a copy of a pattern used to make any of the items I show on my blog. I purchased the pattern and others can do the same. I respect the copyrights of others.
If you see something on my blog that you like - thank you for your kind comments. But please don't ask me to provide you with the pattern. I cannot and will not do so.
