Paid Seamwork subscribers can download two patterns from our collection each month. If the patterns from the current issue aren’t to your liking, you can choose anything else from our collection instead. Seamwork credits do not expire.
If you cancel your paid Seamwork membership you will not be able to use any existing credits you have, but you will get all of them back if you renew your paid membership at a later date.
Using your Seamwork credit is easy — just find a pattern you like and you’ll be able to download it immediately as long as you have credit available. Patterns you own are shown on your download page. You may download these as often as you wish; they do not deduct from your available credits.
No! Seamwork articles are free to read on the web or to download in PDF format for reading on an iPad or other mobile device. While we do require an account to downoad the PDF versions, you will not be charged and do not need to enter any payment information.
If you have an active Seamwork membership, you can find your unique referral link here. Use this link on your blog or social media, and when someone signs up using your link, they’ll get $3 off and you’ll get your next month free!
Your paid membership must be active in order to benefit from free referral months, and any accumulated credits are lost if your membership is cancelled.
All Seamwork patterns are sized from 0–26 or XS–3XL, depending on the type of garment. To see what that means in real terms, please refer to the Colette size charts.
Working with digital patterns is easy! If you’ve never used PDF patterns before, you can find detailed instructions here.
Some of our digital patterns and ebooks are delivered as a single zip file containing two or more PDFs. The iPad cannot download zip files on its own, but there are two ways to handle this:
We sure do. You can purchase a gift membership for 6, 12, or 24 months. You can optionally enter your recipeint’s name and email address to have the gift code delivered directly to them. If you leave these fields empty, the code will be emailed to you so you can write it in a card or give it to them another way.
To redeem a gift code you have received, begin by creating your account on the Seamwork membership page (or sign in if you already have a Seamwork account). Then, on the payment page, simply click the link to enter a gift code rather than a credit card number.
At this time, Seamwork memberships are ongoing, billed automatically each month on the anniversary of your signup date. You can cancel any time from your account page.
Yes! You can find all the previous Seamwork patterns here.
We have readers worldwide and welcome international payments. We are based in Portland, Oregon, and so our prices are all in USD.
We hate to see you go, but you can cancel your paid Seamwork membership at any time from your account page. Just click the “Cancel your account” link and confirm on the following page. This will immediately cancel your paid membership and remove your payment details from our site.
When you cancel your paid membership you will lose access to your pattern library, so be sure to download everything first. If you resubscribe later on, you will regain access to any patterns and Seamwork credits you had previously.
No problem! For questions that aren’t addressed here, please send us an email.
