Frequently Asked Questions:
Do I have to buy the printed fabric panel?
Yes, the only way to join this stitch-along is to purchase the pre-printed fabric panel. By doing that, you are also signing up to an automated email pattern that will come to your inbox every day with instructions, videos, hints, inspiration and more.
Do I have to print the patterns?
As you will have the pre-printed fabric panel, you do not have to actually print the patterns. The patterns will, however, have a black and white line drawing of each design which you can use to trace onto other fabrics to appliqué onto your panel or onto other fabrics for other projects if you wish.
Can I access on any device?
The instructions come in an email to the email address you supplied when ordering. If you can access emails on a phone, tablet or other device then you can get the emails. The actual pattern will be a link in these emails to download a PDF pattern. Most devices will open a PDF and allow you to save it to your device or a cloud service you use (eg dropbox, google drive).
You may not be able to print the pdf from a portable device depending on on your personal setup and connections.
I will be away and may not have access to emails?
The links to the patterns will not expire. However they will be linked to your IP address, and you will be limited to only 2 downloads. Be sure to notify any family members who may delete your emails in your absence as they cannot be resent. Be sure to add Hugs 'n Kisses email address to your safe senders list before leaving or consider setting up an email rule to move all emails to a safe folder.
Will the patterns have an expiration date?
The patterns will not have a link expiration date but they will have limited downloads per email/IP address. Take care when downloading your pattern and saving it in a safe known place.
What if I don't have an email address?
Unfortunately this project will be delivered at this stage by email only. You are welcome to purchase the panel and just stitch the printed designs yourself; however, you will not receive the instructions, design pages or tutorials along the way.
What if I accidentally delete or lose my emails?
Unfortunately as this is an automated program, Hugs 'n Kisses cannot resend lost emails. Red Thread Studio will have backup copies, however. If you've missed one or two - it will not stop you from stitching along on your panel. Please take care and follow all of our suggestions for safely storing your emails and patterns.
Can I share the emails with friends?
This would be a breach of Copyright and is not allowed. You have purchased the program for your own personal use, and you have your own printed panel to use and stitch on. As a bonus, Hugs 'n Kisses is giving you the printable designs so that you get value, assistance and 365 of her copyrighted designs. Please respect her designs and her ability to provide them for you as her business and use them only for yourself. They are not to be shared, reproduced, copied or sold in anyway. The emails and downloads are trackable to your email address and IP address and security has been added through a third party program to enable use to enforce this. Downloads are limited to two per IP address so if you give them away you will not be able to download yourself.
However, feel free to share your progress with friends, let them know and invite them to participate in the program with you by sharing the signup link - its much nicer to stitch with friends, when they have all purchased the program with you.
What size are the pattern sheets?
The pattern files that you will download are setup on A4 paper size. However, if you use Letter size paper you can still print at full size and the content will fit within the margins of both sizes. Please do not select 'fit to print' as your designs will not be to scale.
