Advanced Sewing

By the time you reach the advanced sewing stage, you’re sewing a lot and will attempt to sew almost anything. You probably have our own ideas about the way you want your items to look when you’re finished. Perhaps you no longer use other peoples’ patterns to make your items, but you’re following your own sewing instincts. Maybe you’ve even considered designing your own patterns but you aren’t sure how to go about it. Here is a link to a few simple steps that it takes to accomplish the pattern-making process.

After you’ve created your pattern, you’ll need a place to sell it. If you have your own website, that’s a good place to start. If you don’t have your own site OR if you would like to broaden your customer potential, is a great place to offer your patterns. Our new member sign ups are CURRENTLY CLOSED. However, if you are interested in joining Pattern Mart, please sign up for our waiting list by sending an email to: Once we have an opening available we will notify you immediately.

Pattern Mart is an established site with a vast customer base. The Pattern Mart newsletter is sent out weekly to over 3,000 subscribers. The newsletter includes new patterns (one per designer per week) that are listed during the previous week so that the readers are updated when you have new patterns to offer. Our customer service is second to none, making sure that all customers’ problems are resolved as quickly as possible (usually within an hour and no more than 24 hours).

Selling tip: Offer your customers the instant gratification of being able to download patterns to their computers immediately after payment. Learn more here:
