For the last ten years, I’ve been creating a new tatting pattern once a month for the Be-stitchedstore newsletter,  During that time, I have posted many of them here for anybody to enjoy.  I hope you do!

I would be delighted if you were to tell your friends about my designs, and if you send them to my site.  Please feel free to post pictures of your finished work on your site or blog.  If you were to add a link back to the pattern, I would be grateful, but you don’t have to. You can also send the photo to me, and I’ll post it here.  If you want to tat any of these designs and sell your finished tatting, please feel free to do so.  Please contact me if you want to use my designs as part of a tatting class you are teaching.

Designing and writing out a pattern takes a lot of my time and energy.  Please respect my efforts by not calling my designs your own or by posting the pattern on your site or any other site.  Please post a link to my pattern instead. These designs are copyrighted, so if you do repost or claim them, you are not only hurting me, you are breaking the law.  This includes large corporations  (JoAnn).

If you have any questions at all about how you can use these patterns, please contact me.
