We (almost 120 beaders are involved) have noticed that criminals created almost a dozen of websites where they sell bead designers' kits and patterns, and many many other products, too. Please be aware where you buy patterns, kits and supply! These sites are selling nothing, and probably they are hunting personal data and credit card information.
Please inform your friends or people you know to be aware of this.
This is a short list, the list is not full and we still regocnize new sites! So be careful.
Me personally sell my patterns only in my Etsy shop and my private webshop in Madebyme.store.
