Anything else you would like others to know about your experience with this company? Sweater was photographed backward on the model, despite the description clearly stating which part was the front. Company promised to note in the pattern that the piece was reversible, but did not. The Company promised to heavily promote the design on its blog, Facebook page, etc. and it was never done. Sample was not returned and when I asked for a copy of the final pattern for my portfolio, I was told they couldn’t provide one.
