Subscriptions are everywhere! The ones we all know are mostly newspapers and magazines, plus now beauty boxes, fitness boxes, and other cool stuff (hello pet food, I’m looking at you). And then… patterns. Sewing patterns to be exact. YES! You’ve come to the right place if you’re looking for a sewing subscription. A subscription of glorious Rebecca Page patterns.
Honestly, does it get any cooler? You literally pay a small amount to get monthly awesomeness.
To die hard sewistas and pattern *cough* collectors *cough* (there’s a difference between hoarding and collecting, obviously!) a pattern subscription makes perfect sense. To anyone just starting out on their sewing journey, a pattern subscription makes even more sense. Why?
1: Incredible Value
With the RP pattern subscription you can choose your time frame. Sign up for one month at a time, six months, or 12. Even though you pay upfront for the six and 12 month subscriptions, the most you’ll pay per month is $8.00 (the six month subscription works out at $7.16 per month and the 12 at $6.33). This gets you a credit per month, but you get them all at the beginning, when you subscribe. One credit is equal to one pattern. You can get 12 patterns (plus the member-exclusive freebie) for $73.00, six patterns (plus the freebie) for $46.00, or one pattern (plus the freebie) for $8.00. AND an additional discount on all the other patterns you buy during the course of your subscription – regardless of whether or not you have used your credits.
2: The FREE Strappy Cami
This should be reason enough to join the RP club! The Strappy Cami is an iconic spaghetti strap top that has been designed for layering and can also be worn on its own (with bottoms, of course ?), during all seasons of life (and weather). As an extra layer this cami provides both warmth and modesty. It can be worn under other clothes as a nursing coverup, and can be worn (with no modifications!) all the way through pregnancy and beyond. And it’s FREE for subscribers.
It’s also a subscriber-exclusive. You cannot get your hands on this pattern unless you’re a subscriber.
3: 20% off all other patterns you buy
For real. Over and above the free subscriber-exclusive pattern, you get an extra 20% off any additional patterns you buy for the duration of your subscription. Even patterns that are already on sale.
4: Pattern Credits You Can Save
You get all your pattern credits at the very beginning of your subscription, but you can use them all up in one go or save them for a rainy sewing day. They’re valid for a year (while your subscription is still active). That means that you can have a little extra in the tank for further down the line when (not if…) a new pattern is launched that you simply have to have! Or you can go on a pattern splurge right upfront.
5: Pause at any time
You can pause your subscription at any time, for as long as you like. Going travelling for 6 months? Pause your subscription so you don’t miss out on credits while the time ticks down. Moving house and going to be eyeballs deep in boxes with no chance of sewing or pattern shopping? Pause your subscription until you’re back up and running. It. Is. Genius!
When you take all the Incredible Value information, and break down the mathematics, you’ll see just how affordable the subscription really is – especially because of all the extras! Paying upfront also means you don’t have to worry about being able to afford patterns when they’re released – because you’ll have credits (if you’ve saved ’em) AND/ or the further 20% off. Adding patterns to your collection like a boss!
7: You’ll test your sewing limits
Think about it; you’re a lot more likely to use a credit for a pattern that you may not normally consider. Giving something out of your comfort zone a try is an excellent way to develop your skills further.
8: Something to look forward to
Knowing that RP releases superb patterns regularly and that you have credits and/ or a 20% discount in your back pocket makes those pattern launches even more exciting than they already are!
9: Self-care Spoil
You cannot pour from an empty cup (or sew with an empty bobbin); you need to show yourself some love from time to time. A me-made wardrobe is an excellent personal treat; garments that fit perfectly and are EXACTLY what you want go a long way towards filling that cup (and bobbin – but also emptying the bobbin with the sewing part… just roll with my metaphor… ?).
A subscription is a wonderful treat – regardless of whether or not you spoil yourself in one lump collection or spread the “gifts” out every month. Do something nice for yourself!
10: It’s delightful!
It really, really is such a delightful concept to be able to get the RP patterns at such excellent pricing, plus the member-exclusive freebie. Fan-girl squealing for days!
