Looks like I was given some misinformation - maybe from a lawyer :-)
- Thats my understanding too Marianne. I've been told that simply writing "copyright" on your material is sufficient. I guess I have to rescind my offer of providing copies of the Christmas elves. I'm so sorry. I wouldn't want to do anything that might cause yahoo to shut down the group. I hadn't thought about copyright problems, thanks for pointing that out Karin. I think anyone can order a copy of a back issue from Marie Claire for the pattern.KathyUS
