Please make digital copies of all your retired patterns available! I was reading Vonna's post this morning about searching for retired patterns. I would think a designer would rather make some money off a digital download than watch while someone else makes big bucks off of their used patterns. Now I was very happy once to make $30 on an old Sheepish Designs pattern, but I would much rather Dawn Bradford would make all her retired patterns available.
Mary Beale's older patterns are available as digital downloads on her site. Let me just tell you: I used birthday money and Christmas money, and I bought every single pattern!!!! I love them all. Before I go to bed, or when I am super-stressed, I look through the ginormous binder full of Mary Beale patterns I downloaded (legally downloaded!). Please, please, please, Dawn Bradford, let me throw my money at you! ;)
