Copyright Violations Strike Again

Counterfeit Trish Burr Embroidery kits are apparently a big problem.  This impacts the creator of the designs since it is costing Trish sales.

It also impacts us, the stitchers.  What if Trish was so hurt and upset that she stopping creating new designs?  This happens more than you would think.  I was told the author of Creating Contemporary Bargello was so upset by the plagiarism of her book that she refuses to have it reprinted and will not write another.

So think before you copy a stitch guide or chart for your friends.  You may be doing them a favor but you are stabbing all the creators out there in the back (or to the heart) with your action.
