Purchase information

PLEASE READ

If you want to purchase more than one chart, please email me (email address on my profile) stating which charts you wish to buy and letting me know your Paypal email address. I can then send you a total Paypal invoice which should save on costs.


For those of you who do not have Paypal please email me.


Would you like to receive an email when a new chart is released? If so, please email me and join my mailing list. My email address can be found on my profile.


If you re-post any charts on Pinterest please pin before you enlarge the chart so it links back as too many 'free charts' are just linking to the charts.


Thank you

*News*



I have recently heard from my distributor in the US that several people, as they are looking at the models at the trade shows, say that they can buy one pdf chart from me and then print as many copies as they want to resell! I know that there are some stitchers out there that are not bothered about copyright and blatantly share charts with all and sundry but these are shop owners who we trust to have the integrity to respect copyright. I am not for one suggesting for one moment that all shop owners are doing this but it only takes one or two …

When I started designing I wanted to make my designs affordable for everyone and readily available world wide. By selling pdf charts a stitcher has almost instant gratification as the chart is delivered almost immediately (time differences permitting).  

I have now decided to give Stitching Pretty exclusive rights of sale in the US which means you will have to purchase my designs from your LNS (via Stitching Pretty - the distributor). UK and European customers will be able to purchase printed charts directly from me but this unfortunately means a price rise to cover printing costs and packaging plus postage costs to wherever you live and which will also bring the price in line with that of the US.  

I will leave my site open for six or so weeks to enable those of my customers to complete their 'collections' so if there is any chart you wish to have now is the time to buy! 

I am sorry to do this but I see no alternative.

New designs will be shown on a new iStitch Designs blog *here* (which will open on the day the other closes), plus my personal blog and iStitch Designs Facebook page. Please bear with me during transition www.istitchdesigns.blogspot.co.uk 

Thank you
Take care

iStitch Designs exchange


I have been wondering whether or not to host an iStitch Design exchange. A few people have shown a little interest but, at the moment, not enough. You will need to stitch and finish any iStitch Design and send it to your partner. It does not have to be a purchased chart (but feel free to buy one ;-)) as there are some free charts available - look for the freebies link on the sidebar. It will be up to the individual whether or no to send extras so please remember if you send extras you may not receive any back! Please leave a comment or email me (my email address is on my profile) if you are interested.
