IMPORTANT:- Please do not ask for, nor share, in-print copyrighted patterns. This forum is for helping each other to find patterns on-line and old out of print patterns. Thank you.

Special Note: If someone does help you find a pattern, it would be greatly appreciated if you would also post your "thank you" on this forum. That way we can all know that you were thankful for the help you received.

Also, feel free to discuss anything about crafts on this forum. For example, you may want to tell us what you are currently working on, a little about yourself and family, etc. Many people on this forum have become great friends, so I want to make it a little more friendly place to visit and not only about searching for patterns.

Please do not post Ads on this Forum - I do love to see people earning money from their crafts, however, I do NOT want this forum full of ads. So if you want exposure for your finished works or designs, you are welcome to join in any discussions and offer helpful advice and then at the end of your post you can include a signature file. A signature file is your name at the end of your post plus your website URL and it may also include a couple lines of text. Any other type of advertising will be deleted. Thank you for following these rules.

More Info - Re: How to add images, clickable links, bolding, etc.

When you go to make a post or reply to a post, look above the "Enter Message" box and you will see a clickable link for the "bb codes". Click on that and it will bring it up above the message box and stay there for your reference while you are typing your message or replying to a message.

It will tell you how to make clickable html links, image links so your pictures will show up in your post, how to make different text sizes, bold, underline, italics, etc.

For example, to make clickable links you put "url" inside the square brackets at the first of the link, at the end of the link you put "/url" in square brackets.

If I was going to make my site's link clickable I would need to so this:
Left square bracket url right square bracket
then type my link
then left square bracket /url right square bracket

For adding a photo, it first has to be online somewhere, like on your website or a photo sharing site such as PhotoBucket

You do the same as above for posting a clickable link except inside the square brackets you type "img" instead of url.

I did that for this picture below of my crocheted baby sneaker booties. Since that photo is on my website all I had to do was right click on the picture on my website and select "copy image location", paste that in the message box and then put the "img" bb code at the start and end of the link. And it brings up the photo:

Hopefully Bravenet will someday make it so links are automatically clickable so the bb codes aren't needed anymore!

I hope this helps.
