Privacy – We understand that your privacy is important to you. For this reason any information (such as your email address) will be used only for purposes stated, such as the Stitching Yarns Newsletter. Your information will not be sold, given to, rented or otherwise disseminated to another party without your consent.

• Send information, respond to inquiries, and/or other requests or questions

To be in accordance with CANSPAM, we agree to the following:

Children Online Privacy Protection Act  We do not specifically market to children under the age of 13 years old.  If you are under the age of 13, please do not provide us with any personal information.



Affiliate Marketing – Stitching Yarns is a monetized blog.  This means that I may receive compensation from ads placed on my site, sponsored content, and a small commission from affiliate sales. Everything I promote I either use or subscribe to (such as magazines). Affiliate links that appear within blog posts are always clearly marked. Affiliate sites have separate and independent privacy policies. We therefore have no responsibility or liability for the content and activities of these linked sites.

You will find affiliate links to Red Heart Yarns, Michael’s, Amazon, Annies, I Like Crochet Magazine, Leasure Arts, Creative Bug, and Web Host Face (these guys seriously have the best tech support team ever!).



Payments – All payments are made securely through Paypal. I never see or store your credit card or bank information.

Returns – If you are not happy with something you have purchased, please drop me an email. I will either replace the item or offer a full refund.

DesignsI am not much of a designer. I mostly make and sell other people’s designs. There are so many wonderful designers out there and a lot of people who don’t crochet. I am trying to fill the gap in between. I will always state who made them and provide a link to their website. If anyone ever wants me to stop selling their designs just drop me an email. You don’t even have to explain why.

Policy on my original designs – This applies to both free and paid patterns. Unless otherwise stated, all patterns on this site are copyrighted to me. I’m really quite easy to get along with here. Please do not republish them on another site, sell them, claim them as your own and that sort of thing. I don’t mind if you sell items that you have made, just give some kind of “designed by” credit. Thank you.



Please direct any questions about this policy or anything else to:

Stitching Yarns Owner
