In which I deviate from my plan of EPIC VIDEO AWESOME to talk about the happenings of the last couple of days.
There were teenagers DDRing in the room next to my usual filming location, so I’m in the corner of my bedroom for this one, just in case you’re curious!
I would like to encourage you to visit the following blogs, which were affected by the pattern theft. These pages include some of the most talented indie designers around!
Do you know of other affected sites? Let us know
, we’d love to share their work!
The thieving site is DOWN!
Thank you, thank you to everyone that stepped up to support indie designers and put your foot down against the violation of selling free patterns without permission!
Thank you for not being afraid to speak up and take action. If we don’t say something to protect ourselves and our crafty friends, who will?
THUMBS UP to each and every person that stepped up to help!
Thank you to every single person that has helped spread the word about the pattern theft that has taken place against Fandom In Stitches and many of my designer friends.
I have taken as many measures as I can to rectify the situation and can now only wait and see what happens. Your support of myself and the online crafty community is much appreciated!
On a more positive note, I mailed off a super secret project this over the weekend. I wonder what it could be?!
And now, a quote from my favorite headmaster:
We are only as strong as we are united, as weak as we are divided. Lord Voldemort’s gift for spreading discord and enmity is very great. We can fight it only by showing an equally strong bond of friendship and trust. Differences of habit and language are nothing at all if our aims are identical and our hearts are open.
And, as a happy aside, have you seen Aalia’s wonderful Doctor Who-inspired Prayer Leaf tutorial?
Until tomorrow, my dear friends!
