Frequently Asked Questions

What is Copper Creek Patterns? What is Do It Better Yourself Club?

Our business began as the Do It Yourself Better Club (DIBY Club) in 2018. In December 2023, we changed our name to Copper Creek Patterns (CCP) and began transitioning all of our branding, media, and patterns to reflect the name change. You may find references to DIBY Club throughout our site and on our patterns as we continue our transition. Thanks for your patience!
