Terms & Conditions
Sew Heavenly Designs services are provided without warranty or liability for the use (or unavailability) of our services or the end-use of the files we deliver. In other words we simply provide digitized/ vector artwork – we are not responsible for any losses or liabilities arising from their use.
LICENSE AND USE OF OUR MACHINE EMBROIDERY DESIGNS
You must have an embroidery machine in order to use these designs. These are digital files and not a finished product.
Our designs may NOT be purchased and brought to someone else to put on a product. They are licensed ONLY to the purchaser of the designs. We will not forward purchased designs to any email address or physical address other than the one used to purchase the designs.
Our digitized embroidery designs, either purchased or free designs that are downloaded, MAY NOT be sold, traded, shared, given away, or included in any design set. This includes purchasing with the intent to copy and share with your family or friends. You may not use ANY portion of our design or our exclusive artwork as a basis to create a new design and call it your own. Gill Glenn of Sew Heavenly Designs creates all the design patterns. Many hours have gone into these patterns to bring you unique, high-quality designs at extremely affordable prices. Please respect our work.
Please note that we will not respond to emails with order issues in which two parties split the purchase with the intent of sharing designs.
We reserve the right to immediately terminate repeat downloading abilities to any account holder who is known to be sharing designs.
You may not alter designs and call them your own or sell the altered designs. You may, of course, edit the designs for your own personal use.
USING OUR DESIGNS ON ITEMS FOR SALE
Our designs MAY be stitched on items to be sold as long as they are not mass-produced (i.e., hiring someone else to sew the designs or sewing them on a production line). As long as only the individual purchaser sews the designs, there is no limit to the number of times you may stitch them on items for sale. Designs used on items for sale must be purchased. You may NOT use our free designs on items for sale. You must purchase the designs if you are going to make a profit.
We encourage the use of our designs to be stitched on items you sell! While you may stitch the designs on items to be sold, you may not claim to be the creator/designer of the designs themselves. Kindly credit "Designs by Sew Heavenly Designs" by stating "Embroidery designs purchased from Designs by Sew Heavenly Designs” and kindly link Designs by Sew Heavenly Designs to our website www.sewheavenlydesigns.co.uk.

Each embroiderer must purchase their own copy. In the event of a business partnership, each individual must have purchased their own copies. This is no different than other commercial use terms such as "2 user license" "3 user license" etc. Thank you for complying with our terms.
