A family friend is learning to crochet, and sent me a Facebook message asking if I'd be willing to sit down with her and help her learn different stitches and techniques and how to read patterns. I told her that sounded fun, asked when she'd like to get together.
She asked if I could email her all the patterns I have saved so she could practice reading them, and then meet up with me after that. I told her I could send her patterns I have written myself and link her to others that I've gotten for free, but that I have patterns I'm not authorized to distribute because I had bought them from designers.
Well, she sent back:
"I shouldve figured youd be like that. Your so stuck up I just want to learn and you think your better than me why can't you just send me the pattenrs you have instead of hording them for yourself. Oh, because you think your good at crochet and don't want any competition for everyones attention."
Was I in the wrong somehow? I can't be the only one who honors designers' wishes! It's not mine, so I don't give it out!
