Copyright and Permissions Guidelines and Contact Information

Interweave strives to create a community where information, inspiration, and ideas can be shared. That's why we consider ourselves fortunate to receive many queries about how to access and use our content: everything from how to acquire a pattern from an out-of-print magazine to how to obtain designer's permission to teach her project in a class.

To that end, we've listed some answers to frequently asked questions as well as whom to contact for more help and information.

We can provide magazine content for an individual's personal use from out-of-print issues only. We do not provide content from any books. We charge a handling fee only: $10. To request an out-of-print pattern, contact our Customer Service department, 866.949.1646.

It is not permissible to provide content from a magazine that is in print, for either teaching purposes or to accompany the garment/sample in your shop. You must purchase copies of that issue of the magazine or book.

If you would like content from an out-of-print magazine for teaching purposes or to accompany a garment/sample in your shop, please contact Kathryn Grusauskas,, 970.962.8333 with project request details.

Teachers for non-profit groups, such as 4-H clubs or guilds, are able to use out-of-print patterns for educational purposes only. For all other situations that may involve obtaining IWP and/or designer permission, contact Kathryn Grusauskas,, 970.962.8333.

For companies wanting to kit patterns/projects from IWP publications for resale, contact, Kathryn Grusauskas,, 970.962.8333.

Contact us for prior permission to re-use images appearing in magazines and books. Depending on the copyright holder, prior permission from the photographer may be required and a re-use fee may apply. Contact Kathryn Grusauskas,, 970.962.8333.
