Sometimes a negative can turn into a positive.

Small jewelry gift box for your loved one. It's three inches in diameter and could be used for most types of jewelry.

Earlier today I posted a message asking for help.  I had been informed that a few of my patterns were available for sale on another site. I had contacted the owner and he was unwilling to discuss the issue. Because of that I ask for your support.

Good news and hopefully a new friend and online associate.

I have learned over many years that sometimes a negative can turn into a positive if both parties can just have a reasonable discussion. I needed your help to begin that discussion. Let me explain. I caught the owner of off guard when I called him. After he had some time to think and was shown the level of support I have from your emails to him he responded and ask if he could call me. Of course I wanted to talk with him.

He politely ask me to send him my original work so he could compare the patterns. He was quickly convinced they were indeed my patterns. He gave me a call. As I had suspected he was sold the patterns from a source who told him they were original work. He will not be doing business with that source in the future.

I had researched him online for a couple hours and had come to the conclusion that he was a reputable and honest businessman. Crooks badly stand out on the internet. I knew we would be able to solve the issue.

We talked for several minutes and everything worked out. We may even have future joint projects.

One thing that I can always count on is the support I receive form all of you. Your emails made it clear to Paul that I was not just trolling him. I ask for your support and many of you did as I ask and politely ask Paul to work it out with me. Thank each and everyone of you who responded.

At this point I ask that you not send any further email to I want to make it clear that I firmly believe this was a misunderstanding on his part. I feel comfortable that his business is on the up and up. As a mater of fact I ask that you visit his website and take a look around. There really are some cool things there for Scroll saw, laser and CNC hobby folks.

Last I want to thank Paul Campbell from You were a gentleman and I appreciate the willingness to work through the issue.
