MR Pattern Club 2021
Pattern Club is a creative passion project for me launched in 2020 and I'm excited to continue this CSA-inspired stitching project using upcycled materials another year. If you love snail mail surprises, stitching, sustainable textiles, and bold patterns, I think you'll love MR PATTERN CLUB! There are a limited number of spots and the sign up period will end in January or until spots are filled.
For 2021 I've created a new series (PLEASE NOTE: Listing images show past 2020 patterns as an example) of six original, limited edition patterns printed on materials saved from landfill and mail them bimonthly with a curated matching thread. You also receive access to detailed PDF instructions, a PDF pattern, DIY projects, and virtual meet ups.
Because I'm working with upcycled materials in limited quantities each series of samplers is a surprise (to you & me!), but I do my best to find the best stitching materials. The listing photos share the range of 2020's patterns and some of the DIY projects.
Patterns are created in a dashed line for sashiko-inspired stitching, but can be stitched in a variety of ways. It's always exciting to see the creativity that club members have brought to their projects!

How does it work?
Bimonthly you will receive a snail mail package with an original, limited edition silkscreened pattern and corresponding thread. A welcome letter is included with links to the PDF instructions and pattern download. You are also welcome to join a bimonthly virtual meetup /stitch along. It is not required, but a space for you to ask questions, share projects and create community.
What do MR Pattern Club Members get?
+ 6 original silk screened 15x15" patterns. One pattern mailed bimonthly.
+ Sashiko thread curated to compliment your pattern and fabric. At least one skein delivered with each pattern.
+ Detailed, easy to follow instructions delivered as a PDF.
+ Bimonthly virtual meetup/stitch along. This is our place to ask questions, share projects and create community.
+ Full size PDF patterns for use in your personal projects.
+ Access to a Virtual Pattern Club where all digital files (full PDF pattern, DIYs, instructions) will live in one convenient place.
+ Mailed in a manila envelope via USPS letter. Shipping is included in the cost of Pattern Club for domestic shipping.*
To be able to provide this club service to international friends without breaking the bank for us international packages will be mailed letter rate (not tracking). Tracking services for international mail is prohibitively expensive. There have been delays because of Covid, but fortunately no problems! Because of the limited quantities I may not be able to cover any missing or undelivered packages. Please note this when deciding to purchase. Thanks!
I aim to get patterns out within the first week of the bimonthly schedule, but bear with me. I'm sourcing upcycled materials and it's just me preparing packages.

Can I purchase this as a gift?
Yes, so kind of you! Make sure to leave the recipient's address. Happy to add a gift note too, with the first shipment too. Just leave a note during the check out process.
Can I purchase multiple quantities?
Yes if you are purchasing as a gift and for yourself. Please do purchase separately.
What will I need to participate?
+ needles (I love Olympus Sashiko Needles, but embroidery needles work too!)
+ embroidery hoop (totally optional. I don't use one for the running stitching, but I'd love to see you go crazy with embroidery stitches. Depends on your preferred stitch style. )
