Thank you for your considering Paper Panache patterns
PDF patterns cannot be returned.
PAYING BY CHECK
I'm sorry, I no longer accept checks or money orders. All transactions are carried out online and paid for by Visa, Mastercard, Discover, or Paypal.
CREDIT CARD PROCESSOR NOTE
This cart uses Paypal to process credit cards. You do NOT need a Paypal account to pay with a credit card, and there will be a clear option to use either a credit card or your pre-existing Paypal account on the payment page (roll down if you do not see it! See photo description of shopping cart process below.) There is an opportunity to open a Paypal account if you so wish.
SECURITY & PRIVACY
Please double check your quantities before going to payments. If you buy more than one copy of a PDF download pattern, it is assumed you will be giving a copy/license to another person. (Thank you for honoring my copyright.)
If you discover you have accidentally purchased more than one of the same pattern (you did NOT plan to give one to another person), please contact me for a refund.
COLLECTING YOUR PDF PATTERNS
Immediately after payment, the links to the pattern(s) will be presented on the Thank You page. Download/Save the pattern(s) to your computer or device and keep them for your private use. Please note that Paper Panache does not offer a library account in which you may store or access purchased patterns. Do not use the back button at any time, or you may lose your opportunity to download.
You should also receive an email with the same download links. If necessary, please check your spam/junk mail folder. The links offered on the Thank You page and in the email will expire--do not rely on saving the link to access your pattern in the future. Please note that receipt of email is impossible to guarantee.
Different systems/browsers/email programs may give you different options when you click on the download link. Browsers often download immediately without your input. Some might have you select "Download" or "Save” before transferring the file to your machine. If you don’t get a chance to indicate which folder to send it to, check the Download folder. (NOTE: If you have downloaded a PDF pattern to a previously open folder or desktop and the file does not appear, right click on that folder or desktop and select "Refresh.")
You may see a white page for many seconds when opening the file. This is normal; some files are large and loading may take a while.
If you have a difficulty collecting your PDFs, please email me and describe the problem. Please report any error messages and what it is you are (or are not) seeing (all clues are appreciated!). I am able to resend links when necessary (excluding on Sundays).
You can get more information about opening, printing, and troubleshooting PDFs, and obtaining Adobe Reader, in the “About PDF Patterns” section of the FAQs.
Patterns are copyright by Linda Worland and sold for the purchaser's personal use only. Purchaser may make photocopies of pattern pieces, and may enlarge, reduce, or modify them for their own use and purposes. You may not make or distribute copies of PDF or printed patterns, either printed or electronic, to give or sell to others. Please contact me for any commercial use of patterns.

PATTERN DESIGN NOTE
Most Paper Panache patterns do NOT include printed 1/4" seam allowances. They are designed as whole patterns: Sections are cut apart on the heavy lines, the sewer adds the seam allowances as she/he goes, and after paper piecing the sections are pinned along seam lines and sewn back together. See the How-to.
All PDF patterns are formatted to print on 8-1/2"x11" paper.
Your methods and materials are under your control and results cannot be guaranteed. Should you ever find an error in piecing order or color placement that makes a Paper Panache pattern unworkable, I will repair and replace it. Please send the name of the pattern and a description of the problem.
INK AND TONER NOTE
FYI: When printing your own patterns from the PDFs, please see the information about Toner Transfer and Ink Run.
As of June 2020 Paper Panache has relocated to Prescott Valley, AZ 86314 U.S.A.
Please contact me for mailing address or phone number, if needed.
Occasionally, someone asks me to print and mail them a particular pattern. Unfortunately, I stopped printing patterns in 2018 and no longer have the large format equipment to do so. I do have a very old letter-size laser printer that could print pdfs, but it does not produce quality saleable copies. These days I use my printers for pattern development only.
If you do not have a printer to print the download patterns, the options I am aware of might be 1) to ask a friend to do it for you or 2) to use a copy shop. If they ask, you have my permission to make copies and you promise they are for your personal use only.
Note: Please ignore all $ amounts, as these screenshots are cobbled together.
On very rare occasions, someone tells me that Paypal is insisting on a Paypal account before they can pay for a pattern, when all they want to do is use a credit card. Here are the screens you should be seeing (possible minor variations depending on device, of course).
After you click the Add the Cart button on the product page, the pattern is put in your shopping cart, and you MAY see a popout on the right like the one shown below under the black banner that says "Cart." Click the View Cart button to go to the cart itself.
Below is the actual Shopping Cart page. When you are done adding patterns to the shopping cart and are ready to pay, click the yellow Paypal button.
The Paypal box is presented next. Sometimes the credit/debit button is out of view on this first screen and you need to scroll down to find it. Click the Pay with Debit/Credit button… (don’t put your email in the box like it shows here. My Paypal knows me and automatically fills it.)
You should get the following screen (shown in two pieces below:) Fill out and continue...
Now you will get a review page with a Place Order button. Click that…
Which takes you to the thank you page and your download link(s).
If you see screens that do not correspond to what I have here and feel that Paypal is forcing you to sign up for an account, PLEASE SEND SCREENSHOTS, starting with the first screen you see and ending with the one that is doing the insisting. Up until now I have not been able to gather evidence that such a scenario is actually occurring. Thanks!
