Important Disclosures and Policies to keep things above board.
Comment Policy Disclosure:
Thumper’s rule applies: If you can’t say sumthin’ nice don’t say nuthin’ at all.
Ideas – even disagreement – are welcome, when expressed with grace and tact. Textile Indie will remove or edit any comment that is malicious, offensive, spam, or inappropriate to the focus of this site. Any individual that repeatedly violates the Comment Policy will be permanently blocked. All comments are manually approved. They may not appear on the site immediately.
This site contains endorsements, ads, reviews and affiliate links to products and services. These links may appear in the content and the sidebar/footer. We will only recommend things we’ve used personally and feel are helpful to our readers. Any post that contains affiliate links or sponsors will be marked.
Products may be provided free of charge by the advertiser for our review. If so, this will be noted in the post. This does not ensure a positive review. We will give our honest opinion.
Creating inspiring, helpful content is the goal of this blog. Affiliate links and advertising generate a small income to offset the time and energy we put into Textile Indie.
Please be aware that the advertisements are generated by your internet activity and are not controlled by Textile Indie. We use third-party advertising companies that serve ads when you visit the site. These companies use your search information to provide ads about goods and services you may be interested in.
We are not responsible for the actions of advertisers or sponsors of this blog. If you buy a service or product from one of the site’s advertisers or sponsors based on a comment or link on this blog, you must take action directly with that company to resolve any issues.
Textile Indie is a participant in the Amazon Services LLC Associates Program. Some links on Textile Indie will be affiliated with this program. If you click a link and make a purchase (a book, for instance) we earn a small commission on those sales. There is no extra cost to you. This pays the expenses of our website. Thank you for your support.
