The Download Period
The patterns are supplied as a 12-month licence to download, save, and print for your personal use.
If you save a copy of the PDF pattern file to your computer, you can use it for life as long as you don’t lose the file and still have the software to open it.
If a file is lost after the download licence has expired a new licence will be required for resupply.
If you are not sure how to save a pattern for future use see our download help section.
Your patterns can be accessed on the Internet from any computer, tablet, iPad, or iPhone whilst your download licence is active. Just use your email address or username plus your password to log in to your account.
The pattern files
The patterns are supplied as PDF files. Anyone, anywhere can open a PDF file. All you need is PDF reader software. This is available free from the Adobe website for MS Windows. Go to the Apple app store for the iPad and Play Store for Android devices. Many web browsers can also open PDF files for viewing and printing.

Tips for long-term use.
Back up a copy of the PDF pattern file to a separate hard drive, USB memory stick or cloud storage.
Keep a printed copy of the pattern on file. If your digital copy fails you can resort to a photocopy of the printed pricking pattern.
Getting Patterns Printed
We don’t supply patterns by post but if you don’t have a printer you can ask someone else to print your order for you as long as the patterns are only used by you.
Maybe a family member or friend can help you print your patterns. Your order can be accessed on the Internet from any computer. Just use your email address or username plus your password to log in to your account. Or copy the PDF files to a USB memory stick for transporting. Some stationary supply shops will print copies from a memory stick.
