Q: What happens if I have a free design in my
shopping basket and don't check out of the
website before the design returns to regular
price?A: The design stays in
your shopping basket, and the prices change. For
example, if you add a free design to your basket
on July 15th, the design is
free through July 31st. On August 1st, a note in red will appear on the top
of your basket advising you that the price has
changed, and that the free design is
no longer free. Purchase the design if you wish,
or remove it from your basket.
Q: Are the free designs archived, and can I
download designs from previous months?
A: No, there are no archives of free
designs. After a design is free for one month, it's
moved into the "for sale" departments. Free designs are
offered so that people who are new to

Q: Can I sell things with Embroidery Library
designs -- including the free designs?
A: Yes, you certainly can! When you purchase a design from the Embroidery
Library, you are purchasing a license to
embroider that design. Anything
with the design embroidered on it can be used
for personal use, given as a gift, donated to
charity, or sold. There is no limit to the
number of times you can use the design, no
"bulk licenses" are necessary. The digital design file that you downloaded may
not be transferred to anyone else, in any
manner. It cannot be shared, traded, sold,
given away, or auctioned.
