Patterns sold in the Craftsy Pattern Marketplace are all created and sold by independent designers from around the world. When you purchase a pattern on Craftsy you are directly supporting indie designers, as Craftsy takes absolutely no cut nor listing fee for patterns.
Nothing is physically mailed to you. Instead patterns are all digital PDFs and are provided to you instantly upon purchase within your Craftsy account. Your patterns will be available for you to download in your Craftsy account in your pattern library.
If you need help with a pattern or have questions, you can contact the designer directly - just go into your Pattern Library in your account and click on Contact Info beneath the pattern photo to either email or send the designer a message. As these patterns were designed and sold by indie designers and not Craftsy, the designer will be your best resource for any questions.
All payments for patterns will be made via PayPal. This ensure the designers are receiving the funds directly to their account right away.
Please note that in order to pick up a free pattern, it is still necessary to complete the checkout process to add the pattern to your library to download.
Want to sell the goods you make from a pattern? That is up to the designer - check the pattern's sale page or the pattern itself for notes from the designer on the ability to sell the finished product. Craftsy is not able to make this determination as it is up to the design owner.
