Elizabeth Lee Parry is the original designer and copyright owner

Pattern line. Whereas these works are owned by Elizabeth Lee Parry, she retains
all rights to the development and sale of all designs constructed from these patterns
and the sewing guides that are included therein. Elizabeth is hereafter known
as LICENSOR or ELIZABETH LEE DESIGNS.
Elizabeth Lee Parry (LICENSOR) grants a limited license to the
LICENSEE to manufacture clothing from Elizabeth's two pattern lines with the following
restrictions and requirements:
LICENSEE must pay an annual fee of $100.00 to Elizabeth Lee
Designs for a one year limited license. This fee will help go toward the development
of new designs. The price for a limited lifetime license is $1000.00. This may
be paid at any time during the contract. At the time $1000.00 is paid in full,
the LICENSEE will no longer need to pay the annual fee. All annual fees will be
credited toward the purchase of a limited lifetime license.
- LICENSEE agrees that all clothing must be sewn in her own home without doing
any type of commercial production. By commercial, we mean factory type large scale
production sewing. We are offering this license to encourage and help mothers
earn extra money while working at home. While we do no plan on doing it at this
time, the LICENSOR reserves the rights to commercially produce her own designs
and does not grant any type of commercial sewing license at this time.

Lee Designs. Elizabeth Lee Designs is in no way liable for any outcome of a sewing

the best of his/her ability. We suggest you work to perfect your sewing skills
and become very familiar with our patterns so you can provide your clients with
the very best service possible.
- This license is not meant to be construed as an outright sale. LICENSEE shall
exercise all due diligence safeguarding the aforementioned design and interests
of the LICENSOR. The following statement shall be reproduced and included with
each garment or item sold: This product was sew under a special cottage industry
license granted by Elizabeth Lee Designs. The custom sewing of garments for resale

a subscription to our newsletter and will provide your name to customers who ask
