can I expect when I purchase one of your patterns?
you purchase any of my patterns,
you will receive the pattern as a pdf file(s), and it will be sent to
your email account as an attachment.
As it will state on
the opening page, you should be requesting the Technique
Files from the Library and printing the coloured web page with the
picture of the Quilt and the Fabric Key.
is the best way to print one of your web pages?
your cursor at the start of what you want to print. Click your left
button and keep holding it down while you drag it to where you want
to stop printing. Release the button. The shaded area is what will print
when you choose "Selection" on your printer options.
Please note: If the
whole page does not get printed, you could try setting your printer
You can make almost any webpage print friendly or a pdf you can save
through the webpage Print
Friendly & PDF.
Copy the web address you want to convert, paste it where instucted and
this site converts if for you.
If you don't have a
printer, you can use a computer at your local library.
Can I copy my pattern to give to my small quilt group?
you need to know about copying any of my patterns or web pages (any
kind of copying) or what I mean when I say "Personal Use Only" please
read the information that can be found here.
No pdf file sharing is allowed.
do I print out my pattern (or technique pages)? I can't open the file
you sent me.
you will need to know about saving, opening, reading and printing the
free technique pages can be found on the
Downloading & Printing Page.
You will need an unzip program to open some of the files and you will
need Acrobat Reader (links for free copies can be found on the Downloading
& Printing Page).
I receive a free pattern? I've signed up for your newsletter.
the Victoriana Quilters newsletter is not the same thing as being a
paid member of Victoriana Quilters.
The newsletter is available to everyone, as part of the many free things
I offer on this site. I believe very strongly in the sharing of quilting
knowledge...hence my free technique instructions & information,
Block of the Month, Complimentary Patterns, Charity Quilt Patterns,
Cutting Charts, Printable Labels.
A paid membership ($25.00 USD for the first year) to Victoriana Quilters
allows you to receive the pattern instructions from the patterns on
the Pattern Page, and have access to the Past Blocks of the Month, Members
Notebook and register for the Online Classes. Member's also have the
opportunity to purchase past patterns for a nominal fee.
The $25.00 first year membership fee is what you pay for a book, or
a subscription to a magazine or a couple of patterns.
tried to request a file, but I never received it attached to an email.
Why would that be?
might not have received the file(s) you requested for one of the following
1. It could be that
you accidentally entered an incorrect email address.
2. Your ISP could have
spam blocked my email address.
Checking your spam/junk
folder is ususally helpful.
If this still doesn't
work you need to contact your server, or try a different
with the worst blocking record: AOL, Hotmail, Yahoo, Sbcglobal, Roadrunner,
Rogers, Sympatico, Optonline and Windstream.
Try Google's gmail if you are still having problems (You can get Google
Buzz posts with it too!).
feel free to try again!
3. Your virus checker
could have blocked it. Sometimes a virus program will not allow a file
through, not because it's infected, but because it assumes the attachment
will be a virus.
You need to know that
I wouldn't be offering a file that has any viruses.
If you would like to get the files open, you could temporarily set your
virus checker at a lower security setting, until you are able to save
This has worked for others who also set the setting to the highest security
file I requested arrived attached to my email, but it's all gibberish.
the file to your computer before opening it should correct this problem.
