  • Fabric/texturing issue?

    I love texturing metal with fabric and so far have only done it experimentally, not for profit. If I were to sell items that I'd textured with fabrics that someone else has designed and made, are there any legal/copyright rules that I need to be aware of? Coz I really don't want to get sued or put in prison

    Thank ye

    do you mean use fabrics which you have bought at, say a patchwork shop? I use these fabrics in my mini quilts and many sewing projects, the fact that you are incorporating them into a design of your own, should not be a problem.

    The problem would be if you manufactured the said fabric and copied the design, the chances of any of us doing this I think is remote and would be very costly, I would say you are okay, the design is copyrighted not the actual fabric. If it was a lot of us would be in trouble and joining you behind bars.

      I don't know yet, but you should probably say that the design is from ready made fabric and not etched on etc...
      sounds interesting (1/2 marathons for World Society for the Protection of Animals) Vegan cookery

        Not yet. So far I've been using ancient stuff from my old dressing up box. Although the patchwork shop's not a bad idea for when I run out of stuff I already have

          I wouldn't have thought it would be a problem as it's only the texture you're using, not the actual fabric. I'm assuming you're putting it through a rolling mill?
          Best wishes

            I haven't a clue what you mean but it sounds like it's ok to me?
