*AD | Gifted: The pack I’m talking about in this blog post was gifted but all opinions are my own.*
Last month, I was contacted by the lovely Kate from In a Haystack to see if I wanted to try out her monthly digital subscription packs. A surprise sewing pattern, the chance to discover new brands and a discount code for a fabric shop? It sounded amazing! I was really excited to open the email when it arrived as I had no idea what is going to be in it. It felt like a little digital sewing Christmas stocking.
The theme for the April pack was women. It focussed on women who make clothes, who are fashion pioneers, women calling for the fashion industry to improve and of course those of us who make our own clothes. Dotted through the pack were links to lots of interesting articles which made it feel like I was flicking through a magazine. I had a lovely time reading it with a cuppa and my knitting.
As well as all the fabulous articles, there were some other goodies in the pack including:
- The Josie bra and pant set by Made My Wardrobe, plus a 15% discount other Made My Wardrobe patterns.
- A 15% discount from one of my favourite sewing shops: Like Sew Amazing.
- A 20% discount for the wonderful Literary Emporium, a shop dedicating to all things bookish.
- Lots of sewing tips and tricks
What I particularly loved was she did interviews with the owner of each of the company’s who were featured in the pack. It gave the pack a really personal feel and was fun to get to know these inspiring women a little more.
I really enjoyed my In the Haystack pack this month. It was a wonderful treat to read and the discounts were a lovely bonus. As was the pattern of course which I’m currently making in tencel jersey from Sew Me Sunshine which was a remnant from another project. I’ll be sharing my progress on my instagram so head over there to see it come together. Comfortable lockdown loungewear here I come!
