Terms of use for PDF Sewing Patterns

General

All sewing patterns available on this website and sold via the Afi Atelier Shop are the intellectual property of Afi Atelier and are protected by European Union Copyright Law. These patterns are offered under strict terms of use. The terms (which we also may call usage license or simply license) are divided into the following types:

Personal usage Small business

A license is valid per package only. An example: if you buy Package 1 Small Business of a particular pattern, and Package 2 Personal Usage of the same pattern, you are allowed business activities (stated in the Small Business Allowed Usage section) only with sizes from Package 1. If there is a usage that you need (or is not clear) but is not stated in the sections please contact us at www.afiatelier.com to discuss and clarify it.

If you did not purchase the pattern but it was gifted by Afi Atelier explicitly (email / written social media conversation): the rules in the pattern package apply as if you purchased it. You are granted no rights if you did NOT purchase this pattern. This means you can not use the pattern. Please obtain a legit copy by purchasing the pattern.

Please act in accordance with the copyright rules and abide by the terms of use. Afi Atelier reserves the right to refine the terms of use over time. Please check this page for the latest and most complete version.

Workshop vs course

workshop is a live event with limited occurrences. An in-person course is a physical gathering that can take place several times or recurrent times.
