What is okay to do with my patterns:

You may print out the information on these Web pages for your personal use and make as many copies as you need of templates- again- for personal use.

Please feel free to tell your friends about my site so they can come here and print out their own copies. 

"Real Live" Guilds, (Church groups and school classrooms) may use my patterns to make quilts for charity,  for Block of the Month programs or for the general good of the guild/church/school. I do ask that the patterns are distributed "live" at meetings and in their entirety, including all site and copyright info on the page bottoms. You may post Traditional block patterns in your guild newsletter, again, in their entirety, including the site and copyright info.  You may post only TEXT links  to my patterns on your guild website to have their members come here to the Cache and get specific patterns-NOT the patterns or graphics themselves. 

Items made from Original designs should bear on a permanently sewn on tag on the quilt back: the name of the pattern As I have it named, and that it is from The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn. Should the quilts be shown at quilt shows, that info should also appear in any written materials about the quilt.  

"Online" Quilting Groups may provide TEXT links to my patterns to have their members come here to the Cache and get specific patterns. Should photographs of items made from Original designs be posted on your group website, they should also be clearly marked with the name of the pattern As I have it named, and that it is from The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn.

Individuals may make items for themselves, for gifts, for charitable donation or for sale from any of the Traditional block patterns. ( Sales may not include the pattern itself or any portion thereof) The for sale portion of this paragraph refers to items made by one person, and not mass production situations. [Please keep in mind that while the BLOCK design may be Traditional, on most patterns the Quilt Layout I show, though it may be using a Traditional block pattern, is an  ORIGINAL quilt layout design ...so you'll need to make your own quilt layouts if you want to sell them]  

BARN QUILTS  --It is fine to use any of the Traditional Block designs to paint on your barn... not Original ones though!

You may post photos of the things you have made from my patterns on your website -again- they should also be clearly marked with the name of the pattern As I have it named, and that it is from The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn. 

Quilt Shops may use Traditional patterns to make shop sample quilts--not Originals though. Just be sure to point folks to the Quilter's Cache for the (Traditional!) pattern :o)

You may show your quilts made from my Original patterns or Traditional patterns in quilt shows, giving pattern credit to The Quilter's Cache/Marcia Hohn.

What isn't okay to do with my patterns:

 I do not allow the distribution or use of any of my patterns, graphics or site pages in shops or other commercial environments, nor the use of these as teaching material in any commercial way. 

 No posting of images and/or text from this Web site to another Web site, magazine, etc 

Items made from Original designs may not be made for sale.

...or Anything in violation of the Copyrights listed below unless I have already addressed it here.

Good rule of thumb: When in doubt, ask!

It seems as though most often copyright violations occur with the best of intentions but a lack of understanding of the copyright laws. Please return my kindness in offering these free patterns with the kindness of respecting the above stipulations. 

 You can email me if you need to at marcia "at sign" quilterscache.com 

(taking out the spaces and parentheses and substituting @ for the phrase "at-sign" )

Thanks!  Marcia :o)
