Frequently asked questions

I would love make finished craft items using Crafty Ferret Stitching Pictures patterns to sell on my charity or craft stall, or via the internet, am I allowed?

Sorry I do not allow items to be made to sell using my free or purchased downloads. All Stitching Pictures patterns are for the personal use of the purchaser only. You may view and print the download in its published format as many times as is required for your own use. You may produce an unlimited number of finished items for your own pleasure or to give away to friends and family. Finished items given away by the purchaser of the pattern may not be used for financial gain by the recipient.

I run craft classes and would like to use Stitching Pictures patterns to teach crafting techniques to others, does the copyright allow me to do this?

All downloads are for personal use only and may not to be shared with others.

My Mum/sister/friend/colleague has asked me to give them a copy of a pattern I bought, am I allowed to print one out for them.

All Crafty Ferret and Stitching Pictures designs, patterns and instructions are subject to ©copyright. and are for the sole use of the purchaser only. As a licensee and/or end user of Stitching Pictures designs the purchaser may not copy, republish, sell, display in any media, modify, adapt, rent, lease, loan or distribute any part of any download. No portion of any download may be included in kits, CD’s, DVD’s, videos or publications.

I can't view my patterns, why?

To view downloads you need to have a version five or later copy of Adobe Reader installed on your computer.

When I print a pattern directly from the email link it doesn't come out the correct size, how do I make it the right size?

To get your file to print the correct size first you need to save it on your computer. To do this you can either right click anywhere on the PDF and select 'Save as...' or hover your mouse somewhere at the bottom of the screen so that some symbols appear, then click the 'save' icon. Once you have saved you PDF file it will either drop to the bottom of your screen where you can just click it to open it up, or you will have to go into the file you just created and double click it to open it. To print out the saved PDF file select the print icon from somewhere on the screen, a box will pop up, make sure the 'none' or 'Actual size' box is checked and 'fit to page' is NOT selected before pressing print.

Why don't my printed downloads come out the same colour as they appear on the screen?

The designs I produce are only tested on one home printer, mine, as all printers are different I can't guarantee that the colours your printer produces will look the same as the images on your computer screen. I try to design patterns that have a good contrast between colours by not using two colours that are almost the same. My best advice is to try a few different printer settings until you find the setting that produces the clearest image.

Is it OK to add a link from my blog or website to any of the Stitching Pictues products or to share the images to Pinterest or Instagram?

Yes, free publicity is always welcome but please be aware that I sometimes have to change the titles of blog pages or move designs to a different location so your link would no longer work. This would create a broken link that would look unprofessional on your page or profile. Please give all credit to Judith Drew, Stitching Pictures or Crafty Ferret.

What are PDF files and do you supply the designs in other formats.

Portable Document Files or PDF's are easy to use static files that can't be altered, resized or cropped so will print as a full A4 sheet with all the text and a white border. For ease of designing and printing I have decided not to supply my designs in any other file formats.
