When you purchase an eBook or ePattern from LeisureArts.com, it is necessary for you to have an account so that we can grant you access to your pattern. Specifically, we use your email address. Imagine your online account as a Digital "storage cabinet", where all your Digital items will be stored for you, to access at any time.
It is common for ePatterns to get lost in your email. Having an online account allows you to retrieve your Digital items as you need them; and, it allows us to always keep your ePatterns and eBooks on one site so you may download again.
If we do not an account on record, we cannot fulfill your digital download purchase.
Print or Physical products do not require an account and are eligible for Guest checkout.
