New for 2011 – Bustle & Sew Magazine

Some Bustle & Sew patterns

A new initiative for 2011 …….

I’ve been offering my free newsletter for over a year now and during that time have seen numbers grow from less than 100 to several thousand!!  Over Christmas I was wondering how I could improve my newsletter and give more goodies to my lovely subscribers.  The answer was that I couldn’t unless I started making a small charge for and so the idea for the Bustle & Sew Magazine came to me …..

Some Bustle & Sew patterns

For a (very small) monthly charge of $2.50, each month magazine subscribers will receive  3 new original Bustle & Sew designs (total normal value $10.50).  These will include new Rosie and Bear patterns as they become available.  They will also receive one vintage knitting and one crochet pattern plus additional vintage embroidery designs and patterns.  I hope over time to include articles and input from other bloggers and craftspeople out there (if you’d like to contribute then please do email me!)

If you’d like to subscribe, then you can do so using the Paypal button at the top right hand corner of the page.  There is no minimum subscription and you can cancel at any time without penalty.

I will be continuing with my free newsletter of course as it’s a great way to keep in touch with fellow enthusiasts,  but there won’t be any free original patterns in the free newsletter, though I’ll still include special offers, Bustle & Sew news and vintage designs.

Any queries, please do email me or leave a comment below.

Hi Ellie,
I was wondering… to pay for the subscription is it an automatic monthly charge or is the invoice sent each month?
Thanks in Advance!
