REASONS TO LOOK FORWARD TO THE FIRST DAY OF THE MONTH
There are two reasons I look forward to the first of the month, and this is one of them – Seamwork Magazine by Colette. I’ve been subscribing to and reading this online pattern Magazine since it’s very first issue in December 2014 and I just love it as it’s full of great articles, sewing techniques and creative ideas that help to make sewing even more pleasurable. Admittedly I did think twice about committing to another monthly subscription but the idea of the magazine sounded good and it’s by a company whose patterns I adore. Plus it’s only $6 a month, AND you get two free sewing patterns every month if you subscribe, so it’s a win-win I reckon. The first issue actually had a bonus pattern in it, so there were three patterns, two of which were bag patterns, so immediately I was hooked! (The other pattern was for a really nice cardigan)
READ IT FOR FREE ONLINE
So, believe it or not this magazine is actually FREE to read online or download – yes you heard me correctly! So why subscribe? Well the reason I decided to subscribe was because if you do, you get issued with credits (two per month) which you then use to purchase the patterns contained in each issue. These patterns are then stored in your library available to be downloaded as many times as you like and all of them can be completed in around 1-3 hours. This red top on the cover of the June issue can be made in just one hour, so if you’re stuck for something to wear, you can just whip up one of these cute little numbers and away you go! I can see myself making quite a few of these in different fabrics for summer, just what you need on a warm day.
SO WHAT KIND OF PATTERNS CAN I EXPECT?
Honestly, there’s just about everything you can think of – bags, lingerie; skirts, tops, t-shirts, dresses, swimwear, sleepwear, leggings, menswear, shorts and even a cute little summer romper! You can choose from all of these and more when you subscribe to the Seamwork Mag. Here are some of my favourites:
SUBSCRIBE AND GET HALF OFF YOUR FIRST ISSUE!
And if you subscribe using this link you can get half off your first month! How awesome is that? Very awesome – remember too that each issue comes with two credits which you use to purchase the patterns you want.
I’m off to make something fun, the only problem is deciding which one of these lovely patterns to use!
