On the Facebook page for Jo’s Country Junction was a message. It was from Angelina Reed. The message read, “Noticed your lovely design being sold on Ebay (link above)”. I followed the link and came to this.
Yep. You guessed right. It is our pattern. It is our picture. They are trying to sell it….FRUSTRATION!!
We originally posted this as a free pattern on Moda Bake Shop. You can see they removed the writing we had around the photo and added their own frame. It’s easy to see that there is a thief on the loose.
You can find the original pattern here on Moda Bake Shop. The pattern is FREE!!

That person is in direct violation.
I have written to the thief and asked that they remove the pattern and cease sales. As of writing this post I have not heard anything from the person.
I thank Angelina for bringing this to our attention. If no results come from direct contact from this person I will be forced to notify Ebay. In the meantime I am asking all of you to share this post on whatever social media outlets you have. I don’t want this person to make a penny from high jacking our project, a project that we freely gave to all of you for free. I want people who were meant to have the pattern for free to have it.
This is so frustrating. I saw that the person has other items listed for sale that are craft related. I can’t help but wonder if all of those were high jacked too.
