I expect everyone has had the email, as I have, but just in case, Sewdirect are having one of their pattern sales on Butterick. 50% off and postage is about £1.50 I think. They definitely seem to be looking at the more mature sewer judging from the pattern styles, but lots of lovely dresses, and three patterns for culottes, as well as the Katherine Tilton, Palmer Pletsch and Lisette lines. It’s a bit lacking in pizazz but very useful patterns.

There are some nice patterns on sale, I agree they do seem to be directed at the more mature lady but as I fit into that category 😳 if I could get back to sewing there are 3 or 4 I'd definitely buy.

I'd just bought one cheap on Ebay, but it's still worked out cheaper because of free delivery.

I'll just slip this into this thread but also look out for much reduced Kwik Sew patterns - for instance, Minerva has Kwik Sew at about a quarter of the original price .This will be because the brand has been phased out. It's a pity as they had some nice craft patterns.

@Surest1tch - Me too  :D - it was just that I thought they used to be a bit more varied. I’m sure they are consolidating patterns under a specific brand more than they used to, but I suppose that makes good business sense.

Thanks @Tamnymore. They do seem to have a lot of craft patterns and some clothes too though not as many as they used to have. However the postage on Minerva is quite high for a single pattern…about £2.99 I think?

Yes, I do this a lot too. The postage costs are too high on some of these, and they don’t often have free postage days as they used to have. If you only want one or two patterns it’s a bit of a disincentive.
