Q. What is a PDF pattern? How do I use it?
A. A PDF pattern is a sewing pattern and instructions formatted to fit into an e-book document you can open on your computer with Adobe Acrobat Reader, a free program already installed on most computers. Simply save the pattern to your computer and print the pattern pieces from your home printer. Our patterns DO NOT requiring scaling and when printed at 100% will easily tape together to make a complete pattern.
Q. Where is my pattern? I can't figure out how to download it!
A. You will receive an email to the email account you gave us within 1 hour of purchase. If you haven't received the pattern and you've checked your spam folder, please contact us and we will make sure you receive your pattern. Every now and then an email gets lost in space and we'd be happy to send you another email!
Q. How do you choose which patterns to put in the shop?
A. Independent pattern designers may submit their patterns to Go To Patterns. A review team carefully reviews the patterns to ensure they are professional quality and easy to understand.
Q. I exceded my download limit but it isn't saved on my computer. What should I do?
A. Please contact us with your order number.
Q. Can I use one of your patterns to make and sell items in my etsy shop or at local boutiques?
A. Each pattern and designer has a different policy. Please see the pattern's Copyright and Licensing tab in each pattern page to find out if the pattern you are interested in offers limited licensing.
Q. I don't have a printer, can you mail me my pattern?
A. At this time we are unable to offer printed pattern services. We recommend printing at your local library, print shop or your neighbor's house!
Q. Can I gift this pattern to someone else?
A. No. Gifting, sharing or transferring these digital files in any form is a violation of the terms of copyright. There is a lot of misinformation about digital sewing patterns and what can be shared, etc. Think of it like a song you download. You cannot share that with anyone but you're able to use it on your own devices and for your own personal use. You can't repackage it and pass it off as your own or take parts and pass it off as your own. You cannot resell these on any forum under any circumstances. We will take legal measures against any individual or group that participates in file sharing.
