The  Bath Sets Page was updated today.  There were several  dead links from sites which are no longer available or which have had patterns removed from them.  I will be scouring the internet in the upcoming days and weeks for more links to add.

Please remember to make a copy of patterns you like just in case the original site  or the patterns  do not remain available for your use. It is a good idea to save a copy on paper and in a document stored on  at least one safe place such as a backup drive or flash drive. When doing this, it is advisable to include the name of the designer of the pattern; the name of the  website, and the web address ( URL ) of the website. This  insures that you can give  proper credit to the designer when making an item or telling others about the pattern. In addition, having this information available will make it easier to locate the pattern online in case there is a problem with the website. It will also  help you locate the designer if needed at a future date.

Just in case you ever do need to look for a pattern that is no longer available for some reason, there is hope. By using the WayBack machine feature of the Web Archive you can type in the web address and search for the site.  When doing this, be sure ” http:// ” appears only one time in the search bar. If it is there more than once  your search stands a good chance of not succeeding. Please be aware that according to this page  there can be a six to twenty four month delay in a site being accessible through this service.
