When a pattern comes in downloadable PDF format, it means that it is available electronically and you will not receive a paper version in the post.
A big benefit of this for you is that it allows you to get your pattern immediately after purchase. We will provide download links after checkout and in your order confirmation email. As well as this you can get your pattern any time from your Account area's "Pattern Library" section, which acts as an online library of your downloadable patterns.
Supplying patterns in downloadable format means we can provide a much wider range of designs to inspire you, from the world's biggest and best brands and some of the most exciting and creative independent pattern designers.
