Privacy & Disclosures


The Nancy Vandivert Designs blog is a personal blog written and edited by Nancy Vandivert with occasional guest posts from others.

My intent is to provide high-quality information about knitting, crocheting, and other crafts. I present in good faith opinions, research, experiences, advice, and expertise about a variety of related topics. I may describe results or errors I encountered. I may recommend a specific product or service or service provider.

Accordingly, I promise to make every effort in my posts to be fair, accurate and truthful. And of course, I expect that of my guest authors.

However, guest posts and comments posted at the end of each article represent the advice, reports, and opinions of my guest posters or my readers. So, I cannot insure the accuracy of or be held responsible for their content.

Anything on this site may not be applicable to your situation or may not work for you as expected or at all. Nancy Vandivert Designs is in no way liable for any effect or result—or lack of either—that you may receive if you decide to take action based on what you read here.


Any claim, statistics, or other representation about a product or service recommended on this website should be verified with the manufacturer or other sources before you make any purchase.

This web site contains links to other websites. Remember, all external links contain content which cannot be endorsed or controlled by the author of this site.

Nancy Vandivert Designs makes every effort to provide accurate instructions and details in all patterns we design. If you notify us of an error in one of the patterns we designed, we will happily provide a correction as soon as we can. That represents the limit of our responsibility to you.

Reporting Errors and Making Comments

It is impossible for me to keep each and every blog article and review updated on a daily basis. For this reason I cannot guarantee the accuracy of all the information you read everywhere on this website.

I welcome your feedback and assistance in updating the information I present. And I promise to correct any errors as I discover them or as they are brought to my attention. This website is designed to be a blog and an open forum. So, feel free to challenge me or disagree with me in the Comments section at the end of each post.

However, I reserve the right to delete any comment that is abusive, rude, mean-spirited, profane, or completely unrelated to the topic itself.


I do not accept money, gifts, samples or any other incentives from providers of products or services in exchange for special consideration in the preparation of my reviews or ratings.

However, I have arrangements with the following to earn a small fee should you purchase their products or services through me:

In any case, please be assured it is my intention to always remain objective, impartial, and unbiased.

The connection from me to those services happens through the link I place on this site to connect to them. (It may be a text link or via a graphic image.) If I use my affiliate code in my link, then you will either see “(aff)” without the quotes following the link or a graphic clearly indicating Amazon.com. If you don’t see either clue with a link, it’s not an affiliate link.
