Embroidery designs are considered "software" and are covered under federal laws just like any other software program. Copying software programs is illegal and punishable by civil and criminal laws. Because of this, we have a ZERO TOLERANCE POLICY for any activities related to "sharing" of embroidery designs. Any person involved in illegal activities on our site is subject to having their membership terminated with no refund and possible prosecution. We cheerfully cooperate fully with any law enforcement agencies asking for information in prosecuting software piracy.

We will not forward purchased designs to any email address other than the one used to purchase the designs.
Our digitized embroidery designs, either purchased or free designs that are downloaded, MAY NOT be sold, traded, shared, given away, or included in any design set. This includes purchasing with the intent to copy and share with your family or friends. You may not use ANY portion of our design or our exclusive artwork as a basis to create a new design and call it your own.
We reserve the right to immediately terminate repeat downloading abilities to any account holder who is known to be sharing designs.You may not alter designs and call them your own or sell the altered designs. You may, of course, edit the designs for your own personal use.

· Teaching a Class Using Our Designs
We do allow the use of our designs for classes, but not from your membership designs, unless you have made arrangements with us first.

We would need the date of the class and a list of each person and email address for those attending the class. The set would be licensed only to the purchasers (those people attending the class). If you had a new class at a different date, or needed to purchase another set, there would be new charges for those participants.

As long as only the individual purchaser sews the designs, there is no limit to the amount of times you may stitch them on items for sale. Designs used on items for sale must be purchased.
You may NOT use our free designs on items for sale. You must purchase the designs if you are going to make a profit.
