What The .... Are E-Patterns?????

From time to time (or always) I lose my head and forget to explain something. I just assume (which is a bad thing to do) that everyone is on the same wave length (that would be a nightmare) with me. Sometimes I forget that everyone isn't as familiar with computers and E-patterns as I am. So, I'd like to try and explain to all of you what E_PATTERNS are.

It's really very simple. They are complete patterns sent to you over the internet as a .PDF (portable document format) file which can be downloaded directly to your computer. Instead of being mailed to you via the U.S. Post Office they are sent to you via Email. No waiting for the postman to arrive anymore. Or, worrying that the dog is going to bite the postman. Or, don't get sidetracked, Linda.

Okay! Why would you want to order E-Patterns? First of all, you save time and money (both of which are a commodity these days). Time because you get them within 24 hours. Money because E-Patterns COST A LOT LESS (well, at least my Linda Walsh Originals E-Patterns do) then regular patterns mailed via the post office.

Secondly, you can view or print them anytime you want with the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader (FREE download available at

What do you get with an E-Pattern? Basically, you get a whole pattern (just like what you see in my Linda Walsh Originals “Patterns Examples” link) just like it had been mailed to you, only sent to you electronically. Instead of receiving a whole printed pattern in a plastic envelope via the post office you receive the whole pattern electronically (minus the plastic envelope, of course).

How does it work? If you order an E-Pattern then an Email with a PDF (Portable Document Format) attachment is sent to you which you then need to download to your computer. To view and print the E-Pattern you need to use Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher. If you don’t have it the Adobe Acrobat Reader don't worry. It’s a FREE download from Adobe. Just go to

If you already have the Adobe Acrobat Reader 5.0 or higher then all you need to do is download the .PDF file attachment from your Email and then open it to view it. It will open in the Adobe Acrobat Reader program. You can then save it, view it or print it from Adobe Acrobat Reader.

Just think, you can save THOUSANDS of E-patterns on your computer. THOUSANDS of patterns! No more cluttering up all the drawers in your house. No more hundreds of boxes or plastic containers all over the house. Pattern organization. Progress is being made.

And the best part of all, you can REPRINT the pattern sheets OVER and OVER and OVER again. No more taping worn tissue paper again. No more photocopying pattern sheets at work. REAL progress is being made, ladies. Now, if we could just get a woman elected president. Stop dreaming, Linda.
