      Default Points awards reduced and hourly free designs will be discontinued

      Sorry everyone, but I can't afford to be the in the business of giving away free designs anymore. We are not making much money and the purchase with points vs money is at a ratio of 10 to 1

      In the coming days the following changes will be put in place:

      . The facebook daily runner up app will be discontinued
      . The hourly free design and hourly hunt will be discontinued
      . The points for stitch chat and facebook page will be discontinued

      Your already earned points will continue.

      The daily free design will continue.

      Only way to earn points will be with categorization, voting for the free design of the day and purchasing a design or design set

      Sorry about this, if we continue on the path of free designs we will not be able to cover the monthly expenses of new design sets and server hosting.

      Comments always welcome.

      It was fun while it lasted. Thanks for all the free designs so far and I hope the financial aspect improves for you. Thanks also for letting us keep our already earned points. You've been most generous.
      blessings,

      Shawn, thank you so much for being so generous for such a long time...?. I enjoyed the hunts, even though at times I wanted to throw something at my computer because I couldn't find a design I'd seen many, many times before. I hope things get better for you, and I completely understand your reasons for making these changes.

      I'd like to add my thanks for all the generous gifts I have received in way of Freebies, and for all the points that I have accumulated as well.
      DBS is the first site I check every morning and the last I check every night, and will certainly continue to be so.
      I hope that your finances will improve before too long, as the variety and number of designs that you offer cannot be faulted.

      So sorry, really enjoyed the chat and the hunts. If and when my hubby increases my allowance I will definitely buy from your site. I love the patterns, I sew them to donate to our local Quilts 4 Kids.

      Thank you for your generosity, I have built up quite a stash of designs both free and purchsed and hope that the new measures will bring in more income.

      I so appreciate your generosity of so many freebies every day. I completely understand that your business needs to discontinue some of them. Blessings.

      Thank you for the hundreds of free designs, and the hourly hunt was a lot of fun! You definitely have the widest variety of designs, and they are beautiful. May the future bring prosperity and peace!
