    Just A Question!!!

    I don't want to open a hornet's nest. Just curious. I know it is legal to sell a used book or almost anything you own. You can, also, sell a used pattern as long as it's not a copy. It has to be the original. I know many BOM's and patterns are very expensive. Especially, the ones sold or given with an LQS class such as Stitcher's Garden, Tonga Rhapsody, Thembleberries. Is there a site that sells these used patterns? Ebay only has a few older patterns. I'm sure many of us would be willing to pay a decent price for them. I don't wish to break any laws so If any of my info is incorrect please be lenient with me. Just curious. JUST A QUESTION!!! LOL

    Not an expert here , but think if the person is selling the legal copy of the pattern they are ok- when I say legal copy I mean the pattern as the first person purchased it - not photo copies of it .We have had patterns sold here before.

    certainly...as long as it's an original...it's just like a 'used book' which are sold everywhere...

    You should be just fine selling it. The key thing is that it is the original item you are selling, and not a copy. Since you are not copying, there is no violation involved.

    Oh, I should mention... if what you bought was a bootleg copy, don't ever try to sell that!

    I think a lot of people don't sell those expensive BOM patterns because they were so expensive. I have seen a few that are just the pattern, no fabric and they still go for $65 and up!

    Many people have placed a request of a certain pattern on the buy/sell section of this board and found someone to sell them thiers they no longer need.

    Which pattern are you looking for?
