Welcome to My Patreon Page!
Hello, my name is Dawn and I create sewing and patternmaking videos that can be found on YouTube. I also produce and co-host the live video podcast, That Sewing Blab.

When I started my YouTube channel and That Sewing Blab years ago I never could have dreamed that I would have the opportunity to interview so many talented people in the sewing community or that the show would have lasted as long as it has. Can you believe there are over 150 episodes of That Sewing Blab?



Producing, filming, editing, and promoting videos requires a large time commitment, but it’s something that I’m very passionate about and that I would love to continue doing in the future. I want to continue making videos to share with you as well as to grow and share my knowledge making videos but I cannot do it without support from others. If you are able to support my Dueling Designs channel (which also hosts That Sewing Blab) here on Patreon you would be helping me to keep making episodes of the content I am passionate about, to share my knowledge with others who are interested while allowing me to work on a new exciting project.

My first love is patternmaking. I have been fortunate that I was able to go to university and study fashion design as well as having the opportunity to work in the fashion industry to learn more about both sewing and patternmaking.

The desire I have had to start my own indie patternmaking company, Duelling Designs, is another one of the main reasons why I have started this new Patreon page. I would love the opportunity to turn this passion I have for patternmaking and sewing into a career.

                     
What is Patreon?

Patreon is like a subscription service. You sign up to give a small, recurring donation that is automatically deducted from your credit card every month. In return, you get access to exclusive extra material, get to be a show insider and early access to the replay of all the videos I produce.

What Benefits do you get when you Subscribe to Patreon?
You can choose to sign up for one of the $2/month, $5/month, or $10/month tiers-each with a different set of rewards or bonuses. See the side menu for details.

How will my pledge be used?

These funds will be used to help increase the quality of that original content that I can create.
The money will go to offset the expenses required to do the show (Crowdcast monthly fee, website hosting fees etc.) as well as to other one-off expenses like getting a new microphone, funds to update my website so it is more user-friendly and so I can offer viewers more. If I raise enough funds I would love to get closed captioning on future videos and be able to travel to interview people in person.

What if I can’t afford to be a Patron?
My videos are and always will be free for everyone! This is a completely optional way of helping me out. If you cannot support me creating content at this time it is no problem. There are many ways to support the show including sharing out my videos, commenting on the videos and joining us for the live show -and I am extremely grateful for those methods of support.

You can still watch most of my past videos for free on my YouTube channel. There will still be two live TSB shows a month that are free to watch and a month after the show airs the replays, of most of my videos, will be available to watch on YouTube as well. A delay between recording a show and when it is available to the public isn’t too different from how podcaster operate. It gives creators time to edit and promote each episode. 

Even if you don't end up joining me here, I just want to say thank you for watching my content and for your fabulous support and feedback you have given me along the way. I could not have done any of this without YOU. Thank you!

Dawn


Please Note - (Not the most interesting read but I want to make sure you know exactly what you will get on each tier and I want to be completely transparent.)

Numbered annotations relate to the side menu which describes each tier.


-Patreon makes it very easy to cancel or change your pledge at any time. Just go to your account settings and make any adjustments you like!

- You get all the perks listed as well as all of the perks from the previous tier.

- You can still view replays of past episodes on my Duelling Designs YouTube channel. Although some of the “Journey to becoming an Indie Pattern Designer” series and other personal videos might in part or in their entirety be exclusive for $10 Patreon-only subscribers.

(1)  I will be releasing two That Sewing Blab episodes per month on average with one bonus episode. This replay will be and found only on Patreon for the first month after the live show. After that month it will be available to everyone on YouTube.

(2)  I will release at least one Duelling Designs video a month (reviews, sewing and patternmaking related etc.)

(3)  The bonus episodes (for the top two tiers only) might be filmed a different day or time to the normal That Sewing Blab live show. This will help us interview people in different time zones something we haven’t been able to do until now. The live show will be exclusive to these Patreon subscribers and they will get early access to the replay as well.

(4)  This would begin each month when your pledge has successfully gone through. I will use the name you provide to Patreon unless you have specified another name. This is under my discretion as I only wish to feature sewing related businesses or people interested in sewing.

(5)  Please note this pattern has not been released yet. My first pattern will be released no later than the end of March 2020.

(6)  To be determined according to show schedule and your interest - there is no obligation to join me on screen.

(7) This is at my discretion, I want to ensure you are a business or person who is genuinely interested in sewing
