Okay, stop the presses!
I think I'll be keeping the patterns section up afterall. Just not with all the images. It turns out I'm getting 10% of new visitors through that section, so it would be really dumb to do away with it.
Thank you so much everyone for working on this thread for me!!! I REALLY appreciate it, and feel so supported! You all are WONDERFUL! Sorry to have you do all this work, and end up keeping that section. I'll keep this thread up, just in case things change. But no need to continue adding to it unless things change.
