I know the mods may lock this, too, but I NEED to make a comment. Regarding a question asked about making copies of patterns for a friend. I have tons of pattern books, crocheting, needlework, stained glass, painting and quilting (WAAAY too many!). I read them thoroughly and look for info on copying. MOST, except the quilting mags, say you can copy and explain their policy. My suggestion is to e-mail the magazine and ASK if you can have permission. You'll be surprised how fast some of the magazines respond.
