Information I Collect
To fulfil your order, you must provide me with certain information (which you authorised Etsy to provide to me), such as your name, email address, postal address, payment information, and the details of the product that you’re ordering. You may also choose to provide me with additional personal information, if you contact me directly.
Why I Need Your Information and How I Use It
I rely on a number of legal bases to collect, use, and share your information, including:
as needed to provide my services, such as when I use your information to fulfil your order, to settle disputes, or to provide customer support;
when you have provided your affirmative consent, which you may revoke at any time, such as by signing up for my mailing list;
if necessary to comply with a legal obligation or court order or in connection with a legal claim, such as retaining information about your purchases if required by tax law; and
Information Sharing and Disclosure
Information about my customers is important to my business. I share your personal information for very limited reasons and in limited circumstances, as follows:
Service providers. I engage certain trusted third parties to perform functions and provide services to my shop, such as delivery companies. I will share your personal information with these third parties, but only to the extent necessary to perform these services.
Business transfers. If I sell or merge my business, I may disclose your information as part of that transaction, only to the extent permitted by law.
Compliance with laws. I may collect, use, retain, and share your information if I have a good faith belief that it is reasonably necessary to: (a) respond to legal process or to government requests; (b) enforce my agreements, terms and policies; (c) prevent, investigate, and address fraud and other illegal activity, security, or technical issues; or (d) protect the rights, property, and safety of my customers, or others.
Transfers of Personal Information Outside the EU
I may store and process your information through third-party hosting services in the US and other jurisdictions. As a result, I may transfer your personal information to a jurisdiction with different data protection and government surveillance laws than your jurisdiction. If I am deemed to transfer information about you outside of the EU, I rely on Privacy Shield as the legal basis for the transfer, as Google Cloud is Privacy Shield certified.
If you reside in certain territories, including the EU, you have a number of rights in relation to your personal information. While some of these rights apply generally, certain rights apply only in certain limited cases. I describe these rights below:
Access. You may have the right to access and receive a copy of the personal information I hold about you by contacting me using the contact information below.
Change, restrict, delete. You may also have rights to change, restrict my use of, or delete your personal information. Absent exceptional circumstances (like where I am required to store data for legal reasons) I will generally delete your personal information upon request.
Object. You can object to (i) my processing of some of your information based on my legitimate interests and (ii) receiving marketing messages from me after providing your express consent to receive them. In such cases, I will delete your personal information unless I have compelling and legitimate grounds to continue using that information or if it is needed for legal reasons.
Complain. If you reside in the EU and wish to raise a concern about my use of your information (and without prejudice to any other rights you may have), you have the right to do so with your local data protection authority.

For purposes of EU data protection law, I, Michael Ashton, am the data controller of your personal information. If you have any questions or concerns, you may contact me at Michael.firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternately, you may mail me at:

Most of the wool recommended for use with vintage patterns has been discontinued, but when a modern equivalent is known we include this in the listing details. Use a wool that is close to the thickness recommended - knit a small square before commencing work to check your tension and adjust your needle size as needed.
No - we carry out extensive research to ensure that we are not copying someone's work illegally. If you believe that we have done so we would welcome hearing from you!
We do however have to remove the brand names when re-issuing patterns as we do not own them - Patons is a good example and well known brand name - The company has also been sold several times, and each time the company is sold, those patterns that have been produced prior to the event go into a copyright period lasting 50 to 75 years (depending on the country you reside). Therefore many of the early patterns are now out of copyright - but the Patons Brand name is still owned and in use - therefore we must remove the brand name or we would be in breach of the trademark usage.
No not yet - I'm considering selling them in the future as I have lots of duplicates - But I'm also aware that I have one of the largest pattern collections in the world with over 100,000 - at least half of them unsorted! This is a valuable resource documenting fashion trends & designs dating back to the Victorian era & long term I would like to set up a library of patterns for future use & historical reasons.
Many patterns that are out of copyright are not suitable for selling as PDF's - sometimes there is no equivalent wool available - or the patterns may be damaged and the work required to reissue it is to time consuming - But in many cases we are aware that the pattern may be the only copy left in the world and we try to preserve it.
Trying to sell your designs on Etsy or Ebay is often hard work - if you only have a few patterns it is hard to be seen in a crowd and getting that first sale and the subsequent reviews takes a while.
We don't currently sell patterns produced by others but we would be open to talking to you if you would like to investigate this as a possible route to growing your own business.
The needle sizes required are stated on the pattern and apply to Canada and the UK - If you are from the USA you will need to convert the sizes using a conversion chart such as this one - http://bestyarns.com/knitting-needle-conversion-chart/
Always knit a small square of your item prior to commencing to check your tension and adjust the needle size as required. This is very important when using modern equivalent wools as modern ply weights do not correspond to vintage ply weights!
If your knitted piece is to big - switch to finer needles - if it is to small switch to thicker needles. Any alteration in needle size should be carried throughout the entire pattern.
