Has anyone done this?
I have a couple specific patterns I am interested in but they are spendy ($15 - $20 apiece) and I was thinking it would be neat to borrow one. One of these patterns is one I only want to use *once* and another is a pattern I just want to examine to draft my own. I have several myself, plus the expertise of working with them, and would be willing to trade, loan, and assist others who wanted to use my patterns.
I know patterns can be only 99 cents at Joann's. But I don't get to the sales that often for one thing (live out in the sticks), and use other patterns than the big 4. I also think it would be fun and could build community. For instance, it would be cool to have a pattern database of everyone's patterns so people can peruse others'. I have mad computer skills and could volunteer for this.
Does anyone ever do this or is it totally gauche? Am I just taking crazy pills to think of this?
