BTB10:Patreon is scary!

Patreon is a modern way of uniting supporters with artists. In this case myself with those who want to support my tutorials and pattern design.

A modern version of the Roman art of Patronage, brought up to date for the digital age.

Asking for support and trying to work out what I can offer to give extra value as a personal thank you to anyone who is kind and generous enough to support me was tricky.

This has actually been a very scary process.

What if no one likes my work?

What if no-one cares enough to support me?

What if I’m fooling myself and people just aren’t that interested in these tutorials?

I figure the only way to find out is to just put myself out there.  ITs still terrifying waiting to see if I’m approved by complete strangers.  But I’ve received so many lovely and supportive comments and so much love from viewers and visitors to the site that I thought “Just do it!”

So here is a quick overview of my offerings:

Early access to tutorials, discount codes for the shop, free pattern of your choice each month, listed on the honour roll on the website, listed in the credits for all the videos produced, while you are a patron, monthly giveaways, printed pattern mailed to you, premium kits as so much more.

The higher the sponsorship the greater the rewards.  If you want to see the options and possibly even become a Patron you can do so at :
