Various craft blogs and etsy among others have been posting the news about Urban Threads - a company who poses as an indie, crafty individual - ripping off designers and artists including Sublime Stitching. Feel Stitchy has a nice thorough piece with side by side comparisons that pretty much erase any doubt.
So I was especially disturbed when recently my embroidered embroidery scissor piece was favorited on flickr by Urban Threads. I'm sure they feel free to do whatever they want with any artwork that is out there but I did what I could think of which was to block UT on flickr.
It really makes me crazy and upset that this person/these people are out there continuing to do this crap, using the online communities we use for positive things like support of each other to troll for ideas. I'm not flattered, just disgusted.
