Many readers have been asking us about ways they can help support the site. I think we've found a good way and I'd like to tell you about it.
The vast majority of the content we produce in the form of free sewing patterns, sewing tips & tricks, quilting articles, and other sewing related content is absolutely free. We try to release a new, free sewing pattern or project every week on Sunday and if you're a long term follower, you'll recognize this.
We have a small number of paid sewing patterns still for sale on Bluprint but we haven't charged for a new pattern in years preferring to make our content free so everyone, no matter their means, can enjoy it. Given the current economic issues, I think that this is more important than ever.
We've released some very, very popular free patterns over the years that many of you have hopefully enjoyed. You can see a good list of our many free sewing patterns here.
I'm pleased to announce we've joined a new platform called Ko-fi (pronounced like “coffee”) that lets supporters give one-time or ongoing donations to support creative sites like outs. It's a little like Patreon and SubscribeStar, which are pretty well known, but Ko-Fi is more geared to one-off donations –although you can certainly give on-going support as well. That would be fantastic! Unlike the other platforms, Ko-Fi also takes no commission on the way through either, which is great.
If You'd Like To Support Our Site
If you want to help us continue to bring you a wide selection of free sewing patterns, projects, and articles like this, please consider buying us a coffee to keep us going. We'd really, really appreciate it.
In the future, we hope to be able to provide fun little extras to all our supporters on Ko-Fi.com just so show our appreciation. Please stay tuned and we will notify you about these over on the Ko-Fi platform.
