Backstrap Weaving – Patternfish is closing…multi-language announcement

################################################################

Patternfish .com, the home to the seven e-books plus five foreign language versions that I have published over the years, is closing for sales on MAY 31ST, 2019.

Purchased files will continue to be available for download until JUNE 30, 2019.

################################################################

I have bought only a handful of e-products myself over the years and I downloaded them right away. However, I know that many people have not done this and have been using the convenient Patternfish ‘Pattern Stash’ feature to store their purchases. If you are one of these people, you need to download your stash and store it somewhere safe now. I have been told that using your computer hard drive as the only storage place is not advisable and that you should consider places like Dropbox and other cloud-type services as back-up.

Please pass the word on to anyone you know in your fiber guilds and/ or in your social media circles so that everyone has a chance to save the knitting patterns they have bought as well as my e-books by JUNE 30, 2019.

Don’t forget that the last three books I published:

The Eye-pattern Tubular Band and other Decorative Finishing Techniques,

The Eye-pattern Tubular Band of the Peruvian and Bolivian Highlands, and

Andean Pebble Weave on Inkle Looms

also have video files. Make sure you download those too.

################################################################

I will be re-housing my e-books on another site for new purchases after the May 31st close of business of Patternfish and making what I expect will be a very smooth transition. I will also be attempting to update all the links I have posted to them in this blog over the last 9 years! Phew! Expect an announcement with details soon!

################################################################

Announcements about the Patternfish closure in the various languages in which I have published follow. I so appreciate that my weaving friends Caroline, Lidia and Michèle who also act as my translators are always more than willing to help out. 

Thank you for all your support during the Patternfish years! And I would like to add a special thanks to Syne Mitchell who published my very first book on WeaveZine and who was responsible for getting me set up on Patternfish in the first place. It has been an awesome site!

A blast from the past….my very first WeaveZine edition of Andean Pebble Weave back in 2010 at Convergence Albuquerque NM.

IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Some of you may have heard about the fact that Patternfish.com that hosts my ebooks is planning on closing at the end of May. Patterns, e-books etc that you have bought along with any accompanying videos will be available for downloading and saving until the end of June and I urge you to do so. I will be making a separate blog post about this in the near future once I have investigated my options. In the meantime, if you have concerns about your ability to save your purchases, please contact me via a comment on this blog post or via private message on Facebook or Ravelry. I have an awesome team of customers who have been willing to provide technical help to those who may be having trouble downloading or finding places to store their purchases. Let’s work through this together. We have two months to get your purchases safely tucked away. It’s sad news. Patternfish has been a wonderful home for my ebooks but it’s time to move on and new things are coming!

################################################################

Certains d’entre vous sont peut-être déjà au courant que la fermeture de Patternfish.com, le site qui héberge mes livres électroniques, a été planifiée pour la fin du mois de mai. Les patrons et livres électroniques que vous avez achetés ainsi que les vidéos d’accompagnements sont disponibles pour télécharger et sauvegarder jusqu’à la fin de juin, et je vous encourage à le faire le plus tôt possible. Je vais écrire un article à ce sujet sur mon blogue bientôt, quand j’aurai fini d’explorer mes options. Entretemps, si vous avez des doutes quand à votre habilité à sauvegarder vos achats, S.V.P. contactez-moi en laissant un commentaire sur l’article dans mon blogue ou en m’envoyant un message privé sur Facebook ou Ravelry. J’ai une équipe formidable de clients qui sont prêts à fournir de l’aide technique à ceux qui pensent avoir de la difficulté à télécharger ou à trouver un endroit sécure pour sauvegarder leurs achats. Travaillons donc ensemble pour passer à travers ! Nous avons deux mois pour sauvegarder de manière sécure vos achats. C’est une triste nouvelle. Patternfish a été un site formidable pour mes livres électroniques, mais il est maintenant temps pour un changement, d’autres choses s’en viennent !

WICHTIGE ANKÜNDIGUNG: Einige von Euch haben vielleicht schon gehört, dass Patternfish.com, die Webseite, die meine E-Books im Internet vertreibt, Ende Mai schließen wird. Muster, E-Books usw., die Ihr, evtl. zusammen mit den dazugehörigen Videos, gekauft habt, werden nur noch bis Ende Juni zum Herunterladen und Speichern zur Verfügung stehen und ich möchte sichergehen, dass Ihr diese rechtzeitig speichert. Ich werde in Kürze einen gesonderten Blog-Post schreiben, sobald ich Genaueres weiß. Falls Ihr Probleme mit dem Speichern Eurer Waren habt, sagt mir Bescheid in einer Antwort auf dieses Posting oder kontaktiert mich bitte mit einer privaten Nachricht auf Facebook oder Ravelry. Ich habe ein fantastisches Team von Kunden, die gerne technische Hilfe leisten, wenn jemand Probleme beim Herunterladen oder beim Finden von Speicherplätzen hat, um bereits gekauften Waren zu sichern. Wir können diese Probleme gemeinsam lösen! Wir haben zwei Monate Zeit, um Eure E-Books zu speichern. Ich bedaure, daß Patternfish schließt. Es war ein wunderbares Zuhause für meine E-Books, aber das Leben geht weiter und es gibt bald Neues zu berichten!

################################################################

Annuncio importante: Avrete forse sentito che Patternfish.com, il sito che ospita i miei libri, ha deciso di chiudere a fine maggio. I libri, gli schemi e relativi video che avete acquistato potranno essere scaricati entro fine giugno e vi invito a farlo.Vi aggiornerò con un post apposito non appena avrò capito quali sono le mie opzioni.  Nel frattempo se avete dei dubbi per il salvataggio dei vostri acquisti non esitate a contattarmi tramite un commento su questo blog o con un messaggio privato su Facebook o Ravelry. Ho una formidabile squadra di clienti che volentieri offrono aiuto tecnico a chi possa avere problemi nello scaricare o nell’archiviare i propri acquisti.  Lavoriamo insieme per superare questo momento. Abbiamo due mesi di tempo per archiviare i vostri acquisti in modo sicuro.  E’ una triste notizia,  Patternfish é stato un magnifico ospite per i miei libri, ma ora é tempo di andare oltre, nuove mete     all’orizzonte!

ANUNCIO IMPORTANTE: Algunos de ustedes deben haber recibido las noticias de que Patternfish.com que hospeda mis libros electrónicos, está planeando cerrar a fines de mayo. Los patrones, libros electrónicos, etc., que usted haya comprado junto con los videos que los acompañan, estarán disponibles para descargarlos y guardarlos hasta fines de junio y les recomiendo que lo hagan. Yo haré una publicación separada al respecto en mi blog más adelante una vez que haya investigado mis opciones. Mientras tanto, si usted tiene alguna inquietud acerca de cómo guardar sus compras, por favor, contácteme por comentario en esta publicación de blog, o por mensaje privado en Facebook o Ravelry. Tengo un equipo fabuloso de clientes que están dispuestos a proveer ayuda técnica a los que puedan tener problemas al bajar o encontrar lugar donde almacenar sus compras. Trabajemos juntos en esto. Tenemos dos meses para guardar sus compras en un lugar seguro. Son noticias tristes. Patternfish ha sido un maravilloso hogar para mis libros electrónicos pero es hora de continuar y ¡nuevas cosas vendrán!
