Pattern and Image Watermarks

Please be aware that all of Gingerberry Creek's images and patterns are copyrighted and will contain a watermark design.

The watermark is essential for protecting intellectual property, and my watermark follows industry standards.  Therefore, my images and patterns will always contain my watermark regardless of digital or pre-printed patterns. 

GBC Pattern Formats

Currently, my patterns are offered in 2 formats.

  • Paper Patterns:      These come pre-printed in a resealable ziploc bag.  Each pattern will have a Cover Page with Supply List, General Information Page, Written Pattern Instructions Page(s) and Pattern Template  Page(s). Paper Patterns require shipping from Gingerberry Creek.
  • E-Pattern or Digital Pattern: These patterns are purchased and downloaded by you (the buyer). Once payment is made you will download and save the PDF file      to your computer. You can then print it from your printer at your convenience.  All E-Patterns include the same pages that are in the Paper Patterns, minus the ziploc bag. Since you download and print from your computer, there is no waiting and no shipping costs are incurred. This pattern format is great for everyone, especially those that are International.

Where can I buy GBC Patterns?
