Christmas Ornament Cover Pattern

Post by Marg » Sun, 11 Nov 2001 03:48:13



A friend had a pattern for a beaded cover that was absolutely
gorgeous.  It was draped like an Austrian Valance around the ball. The
rows were close together, with the last row ending in fringe.  She has
since lost the pattern, but thinks it was in an old issue of Bead and
Button Magazine. Does anyone have this pattern or can anyone point me
in the right direction to obtain it?
Thanks

It was in an early Bead and Button Issue within the first couple of years, I
think-- I don't know which but basically the pattern was five bugle bead
ladders which were connected together with the swag rows.  Each of the
strung rows increased the number of beads between each pair of ladders and
when each circle was completed the thread passed through the first bugle
ladder and then back through the next bugle down so that it changed
direction each row.  The bottom end of the ladders were embellished.  You
can also do this with 6 ladders, or 7 or whatever number you want -- can
make gaps in the swag rows or embellish some of the swag rows with something
other than seed beads.

Hope this helps --

BJ

I think B&B sells back issues on their site -- I remember it also.

1997 B&B No 21, I think it's still available. If you like I can scan it and
forward it to you.

yes, thank you BJ, you most certainly did help.  That is the exact
pattern I was looking for.  Thanks again.

Thank you, Brian, I would greatly appreciate your scanning and
emailing me the pattern.  I wrote you an email to that affect.

Thanks again

I wondered if anyone would catch this.  To copy a pattern
(or even an article) from a magazine for someone else violates
the copyright laws.

I know it *seems* annoying - - hey, it's your magazine, right?
You paid for it, right? - - but here's a simpler way of viewing it.  
Each time you copy an article/pattern for someone, that's the price
of the magazine right out of the publisher's pocket.

If I buy a magazine for $6, but copy a pattern for 10 of my
friends, the publisher only got $6 when he could have gotten
$66.  So it's not just a "copyright issue," it's taking money
from someone.

The same thing happens when you loan patterns to friends.  The
artist only gets paid the first time, not the subsequent times,
and this is taking money right out of their pocket.  We're all
(most of us?) artists, here.  We should look out for each other.

This is only true IMO *if* the magazine issue containing the pattern is still
available. If the other person CAN'T buy it, then I don't see any reason not to
copy it for them.

This is similar to a consideration I sometimes have to deal with WRT filk
music. I *will not* copy a filk tape for someone else if it's still available
from filk dealers. But there are a lot of tapes which have gone out of print
(often because the original publisher went out of business), and if someone
hears my copy of one of those and wants one, I will dup it for them. But I
still won't take money for doing so.

I gave the issue number of the magazine and said that I thought it was still
available.  I should have said if it isn't available I will scan it.  I
realised that, after posting the message, but of course I also realised that
the *** police would pick up my error - mea culpa everybody!

Does it change the rules if the back issue is no longer available?  Then no one
is losing income because of it.

Legally, no, although I would make an effort to contact the author and
if I couldn't get a copy from there, I would probably ask to borrow
someone else's copy.  If you've exhausted the possibilities, it's
still illegal to copy, but there's nothing you could do to get it
otherwise, so I think even the author/publisher would be lenient in
that case, assuming they were prone to sue.

Go to your local library and ask for it through inter-library loan (I am
assuming they don't carry the magazine themselves.)  It is legal for the
library to make you a copy of the article if they can't locate the actual
magazine for you.
