WOW, this is very discourging and not very friendly.  First I saw the high cost of patterns from one person and now I see them from someone else. 300 gold coins for a pattern? I thought this was a friendly and educational site? What is going on?

When I joined this site it's heart was 'a caring and sharing site'. Now, this was not that long ago and then the owners of the site changed it -  not for the better for crafters. but for the better of the owners and profit.
On joining, the patterns cost around 10 coins with a small download charge. There was a lot of chit-chat among crafters.Tthis all changed and it is a site for the owners to make money on copyrighted patterns without paying the copyright part. OK, I subscribed for this when I joined because there were patterns I wanted. But, the owners upped the anti and decided there would be no more chit-chat and prices were put up to 50 coins MINIMUM per pattern. Now the owners allow ANY price you want to put on your pattern. And, they don't want chit-chat. So many of the crafters (and some mods) who were on here when I started have left; this saddens me......
Global consumerism rules the day...... this is not what crafters are about..................

I've seen a few, too.  150 for one divided into one too many parts.  4 mb in each rar file so you pay even MORE for the download...

Which pattern did you want that cost 300?  I charged 25 for one, but all others--when I did--I charge only 20.  They'd be paying 50 gold that way which is plenty in my opinion.  I've seen posts on here that I found for free on Russian sites, and they were charging over 100 gold for them here.  Greedy.  I earned over a 1000 gold today, and I did it with free or cheap patterns.

Though, if I had a lot more, I probably wouldn't  care about price, and some people know that.  They take advantage of it.

So that would make the total for that pattern 400? I will have to earn much more gold before I get that one. Thanks for explaining, would hate to spend all my gold on one pattern.

If you see a pattern for free, highlight the name of the author and what the pattern is, copy it to the search on top of your computer and get it for free. Most of the "free" patterns are not free.   Post time 2016-11-19 12:29

If a pattern is broken into many parts is there a cost for each part ? I want a pattern but it is broken into 5 small parts, each says cost 50 coins beside of it.

Ditto. There's one I want in 4 parts. All cost 50 g. Each one is less than 5mb so they could be combined. Instead of 200 (steep price!), the pattern is 320. Condense, people! Could be 60 g cheaper!  Post time 2016-11-19 15:39
Yes you would be paying for all 5 parts and 30 gold coins for each part you download.  Post time 2016-11-19 11:46

Wow I'm glad I saw that each part was a separate few. I didn't realize that. I thought it would just be one

It is but keep looking as most are less than 300

Comments

300 for a pattern is ridiculous as is 200 and 150, 100. This is SUPPOSE to be a sharing site.  Post time 2016-12-17 06:50
