    Hats down for Whistlepig Creek Productions

    I bought a total of five patterns from this company and they are awesome. But, that is not why I am writing this post. Where this company won me over is the wording of their copyright which obviously protects the pattern rights but also gives people permition to make the goods for profit (craft shows, charities, online store) but not for mass production. How neat is that??? They are a rarity in this world. Kudos to the Whistlepig Creek Productions, they will always have my business. And no, we are not related

    That is nice to see - I haven't purchased some patterns because of the way their copyright reads - makes them sound like the warden in a jail. I don't make items to sell but don't want to be treated like a criminal!

    Thank you for the heads-up. They will get my business too! Whistlepig's seems to have the right and reasonable attitude.
