Now, more serious stuff. The price of my year long monthly membership will go up as of October 5th. Month by month ($3.95) for now will remain the same. If you are interested in paying only $30 for a minimum of 48 patterns for 1 year (all my new patterns as they come out--many priced at $2.95+ ), hurry, because the price will go up to $36 October 5th. My returned Club Pack Membership will also continue to be offered.
