Privacy Policy

Your information will only be collected, used, and disclosed by my email, pattern sales, and website service providers to enable these specific services. Further details and links to the individual privacy policies of my service providers are listed below.

Email newsletter

My email newsletter provider is MailChimp. They store your email address, which you provide when you subscribe, and I have access to this through their service. This information is private and will never be shared. You can read MailChimp's privacy policy here.

Pattern sales

This website's shopping cart function is provided by Ravelry. When a purchase is made through this function or on Ravelry's website, I receive a copy of each pattern-download email received by the purchaser, to provide me with proof of delivery. Ravelry stores usernames and email addresses linked to purchase records, which I have access to through their website. This information is private and will never be shared. You can read Ravelry's privacy policy here. My patterns are also available from Loveknitting, from whom I receive no email addresses or other purchaser details. You can read their privacy policy here.


All pattern sale payments are processed through PayPal. I receive notification-of-payment emails for each purchase, which include the purchaser's email address. This information is private and will never be shared. You can read Paypal's privacy policy here.


This website is hosted by SquareSpace. I receive an email notification of each comment left on my tutorials and blog posts, to enable me to respond quickly. SquareSpace also provides me with basic website analytics, for example statistics about popular content and referring websites. I receive no personal details as part of these analytics. You can read SquareSpace's privacy policy here.

Contact form and email

When you get in touch with me via this website's contact form or via email, I need you to provide your name and email address so that I can reply. I store these contact emails within my email provider Gmail as a record of our discussion should I need to refer back to it. This information is private and will never be shared. You can read Gmail's privacy policy here.


Cookies are used by SquareSpace (to provide website services), Ravelry (to provide the shopping cart), PayPal (to process payments), and MailChimp (to subscribe people to my mailing list). These cookies can be deleted via your web browser.
