Bag of the Month Club 2015 - PRIZES!!!


Hello 2015 Bag of the Month Club members.  The prizes have all been organized for this years contest and we are proud to announce that our amazing sponsors have been very generous and we are lucky to be able to provide 1st, 2nd, & 3rd place prizes for each of the 6 bag designs, as well as 6 randomly drawn prizes.

To Enter: 
If you are a club member, please link up your completed bag photos to the FLICKR GROUP by July 15th, 2015. You can enter as many bags as you like, but they must be bags from the Bag of the Month 2015 club offering only. Upload a couple of clear photos of your bag so we can see inside and out and feel free to link to your blog, website or shop listing.  

Judging will be done slightly different than last year. This year the designers will work together to pick several finalists for each bag design, and we will have public voting to choose the winners. More details will come closer to July. (If you are not a member, it's not too late to join, just CLICK HERE and you can read all about it.  The past month's patterns will be sent to you after payment.)

Bag of the Month Club 2015

Hi ladies!!  Sara has given us the details to the Bag of the Month Club 2015. 
Read all about it here and sign up for the fun!



Hey everyone! I am very excited that today, pre-orders are going on sale for the Bag of the Month Club for 2015! If you are not familiar with the club, please click here to view the club offerings for 2014 so you can get a taste of the quality of bag patterns that are in store for you in 2015!

The Details

6 of the best bag sewing pattern designers in the business are teaming together to bring you a 6-month membership club. The club runs from January-June of 2015. Each month, you will receive an exclusive and brand-new pdf bag sewing pattern from that month’s designer, delivered directly to your inbox. If you are familiar with even one of the designers, then you know that you can expect a high-quality and easy-to-understand sewing pattern each month! The bag designs will be a mystery until each pattern is revealed every month. We promise, they will definitely be worth the wait! The patterns will be exclusive to the club for the duration. Each pdf pattern will be delivered on the 1st of the month, and will include detailed instructions, illustrations/photos, and templates needed to make the bag pattern. If you join after the club begins, you will receive all patterns released to the club up until that point (for instance, if you join on February 14th, you will receive the patterns for January and February automatically).

 

We are all so excited for you to join us! The one-time fee for 6 months of Bag of the Month Club is $40, during which time you will receive 6 pdf bag sewing patterns. HOWEVER, if you sign up during the month of December 2014, you will receive an early-bird membership fee of only $35! The club runs from January through June of 2014. The club is a great value; pdf bag sewing patterns usually cost around $10 each, and you will be receiving 6 patterns for only $40 (or $35 in December)!

The Designers



January - Samantha from Sewing Patterns with Mrs. H. is a Welsh pattern designer with a group of pretty yet practical bags in her pattern library. I heard about January's bag design and I was very excited, as it's a piece of purse hardware that I have never used before, but always wanted to. Look out for January's bag, as it's going to be amazing!

February - Sara Lawson is up for February. She likes bags with a lot of pretty details, and we had a lot of requests last time for smaller bags, so she is going to see what she can come up with! "Smaller bags are challenging for me to design, but I'm up for it!"

March - Anna from Noodlehead has many versatile free tutorials and paid patterns on her site, many of which are wildly popular with quilters! Anna's first book is due out in February, called Handmade Style: 24 Must-Have Basics to Stitch, Use, and Wear.

April - Janelle of Emmaline Bags. Janelle has a thriving pattern business, where she also sells all the hardware, handles, and interfacing needed to make the bag patterns in her shop. Janelle's first book is coming out in 2015.

May - Betz White is a bag designer and textile artist, and she is the author of three books, most recently Present Perfect: 25 Gifts to Sew and Bestow. You can find her patterns available on-line in her pattern shop, as well as her video classes on Creative Bug and Craftsy.

June - Chris of Chris W. Designs is an Australian bag pattern designer, and Chris has sewing patterns available for various skill levels. Her linky party, Bag Brag Tuesday, is also great for linking up your finished projects and seeing what everyone else is making!
