Who Can Be an Affiliate
You need to have a blog to be an affiliate. Technical support is not provided, so you need to be able to post text, photos and links to your own blog.
Blogs where I have paid for an advertisement are NOT eligible to be affiliates.
The affiliate program is best suited for blogs with these qualities:
- Post on a regular basis (2+ times per week).
- Well established (1+ year) with a steady stream of traffic.
- Sewing, crafting, DIY focus.
- Willing to periodically write a brief blog post mentioning the patterns or share something made with a pattern.
I will be sending emails to affiliates periodically with sales info and announcements. Just like anything else you are trying to sell online, if you don't promote it you won't see any results.
150 x 150 ads are below. If you need another size let me know. I can resize them to fit the width of your blog column, but they will still be square. Place them in a section of your blog where it is obvious it is sponsor button.

Take a look at the How to Link document for instructions on how to use the coded links:
