I’m in the cross stitch library, but I can’t find a link to download the pattern I’m looking at!
The links are all below the thumbnails corresponding to the pattern. If you go back to the library page, you should see a login (subscribe box) and a troubleshooting guide with some screen shots if you’re having issues so you can figure out why you’re not seeing the downloads. It’s difficult to troubleshoot individual computers because things could be blocking within your browser, but I hope that helps!
