What is Donationware and why should I pay for it?

My ‘free’ patterns are all available as Donationware: for any donation of a dollar or more, you’ll receive a nicely formatted PDF of the pattern that’s easy to print, or to save to your computer or mobile device. The PDF version may also include extra tips and bonus content (the pattern description will indicate if/what bonuses are included). If you can’t or won’t pay, or would like to try before you buy, all my Donationware patterns are available to view in full, linked from my Free Patterns page.

Your donations help to support the content I provide at PlanetJune. PlanetJune is ad-free – instead of forcing you to view adverts you aren’t interested in, I prefer that you choose to pay for my free patterns, tutorials and advice that you find helpful. Donations go to fund my expenses (my web server and yarn for new designs) and to support me so I can afford to continue to provide you with my crochet expertise in the form of new patterns and tutorials.

All donations are very gratefully received, whether you can afford only a dollar or have the means to offer a much larger contribution – every dollar counts! In fact, receiving donations is one of the most meaningful parts of my business: if I can help you enough that you choose to reward me when you aren’t obliged to, that proves I’m making a real difference with my life and my choice of career. Thank you for your generosity 🙂
