Notes on Attribution

My Circles draft has been shared a lot.  And my Turned Taquete Dishtowels, with drafts going back to, what, 2012, about my adventures with dishtowels have been read by many, many weavers and subsequently woven in many variations. I have received lots of comments by folks who have woven my blog-published designs and are happy with having been given that opportunity.

There is a group on Ravelry — Warped Weavers — that shares projects from my drafts and gives me credit. I am glad for that.

There are boards on Pinterest that share my weaving, from my blog and my Etsy shop. I don’t mind when that happens. But I like to be given credit. And when I see my images on Pinterest I will often add a note about the source.

I get that when I put these drafts out on the internet, people are going to use them and not always with a clear line of attribution that goes back to me. But I would like to think that most people would do that.

It’s only right.

  1. It’s always a problem when one shares a draft that is your design. My study group has had several discussions about this and copy-rights some don’t understand why the fuss. I agree please give me credit when a work of mine is posted to pin interest or otherwise shared.

  2. I agree totally. Even if one changes the draft a bit, one should at least attribute the inspiration. There really isn’t anything new…it’s all been done before in some form, material, technique, but if using another’s idea, the attribution should be made!
