Can I sell the items I make from your patterns?

Can I use your photo on my blog?

Yes, we'd love for you to share a photo from the Purl Bee as long as the photo links back to the page you found it on.  Please be sure to credit us by name and link back directly to the Purl Bee, please link to the specific project that is featured in the photo and not to the homepage. 

I am having a problem with one of your patterns. Can you help me?

Yes, we are always happy to help! Just leave a comment at the end of the story or pattern about which you have a question, and we will get right back to you!

Of course, if you're in the New York City area, feel free to pop into our Soho store anytime we're open, and one of our expert salespeople will answer every single question you have!

How can I print a pattern from the Purl Bee?

We recommend that you copy just the text and pictures (not the right or left side bars or the blog header) from the journal and paste them into a Word or Text document to print.  We are in the process of improving this process.  We appreciate your patience!
