Frequently Asked Questions:
Please explain your patterns & membership options.
Founded in 2017, Our SewLikeARockStar site is the amazing result of a fantastic community of members and customers that are contributing to its success.
We are a small team of people - dedicated to helping our members have fun and learn sewing techniques in a unique way.
Our focus is on teaching fundamental sewing procedures and helping sewists of all levels learn, enjoy and be proud of projects that shine with craftsmanship.
We are not a large corporation with millions of dollars of venture capital. :) We are here because of love and support from our members.
While individual patterns are available, the memberships support the expenses of the site and our staff: customer service, web development, marketing & production.
We appreciate the members of every level. If you're just starting out with us, we understand that you might like to try us first.
We appreciate you and want you to enjoy your time with us.
We truly work hard to offer different levels of participation to have something for everyone:
1. Patterns, Embroidery Designs, Weekend Warrior Projects or Mastery Workshops.
Each of these may be purchased separately as you desire.
If purchased separately, you will have lifetime access to that product.
When revisions and additional "treats" are are added to these projects, you will automatically have access.
Read each project description carefully before purchasing, please.
