Anything else you would like others to know about your experience with this company? Terrible experience. I met all deadlines, but company took over a year to finally publish the pattern and pay me–and came to me asking for pictures because they’d lost the sample and weren’t sure what it looked like. Did almost no promotion of the design. Pay was poor, but I was a new designer and didn’t know better. Company is under new management, so perhaps situation has improved.
