I'd like to thank all of you who have clicked through over the past 4 1/2 years. I'd also like to thank all of the tiers that have graciously contributed their artwork and skills to this site. Unfortunately, I've reached the point in my life where other opportunities (Distill Productions) and other needs are more pressing and I just can't justify the time and effort maintaining and promoting this site takes. I will not be shutting down this site though but starting next week, I will start reposting 235 patterns we've filmed over the years. I may in the future resume posting new patterns if life takes me in that direction but for now I need a break. I have Reduced the price of the HD subscription as well since I won't be adding any new HD patterns in the near future. It started out at about $45 for a year, and I've reduced it down to $9.95. So, you can basically download the whole catalogue if you want to. Thanks so much again to all of you. I've had the pleasure of meeting some incredible and fascinating tiers and seen some simply amazing artistry and ingenuity. All the best to you all and check back next week to see the first patterns we ever posted. Leave a comment if you have a question.
