Come see what's new this month from the Charm Artist Collective

Patreon is the official home of the Charm Artist Collective, the new theme for Gertie's monthly subscription that connects you to new projects, a community of sewists, special rewards, and so much more. We’re a group of free thinkers and bohemians, and we believe in effortless glamour with a DIY spirit.

This must-join community has several tiers so you can customize your experience. Want Gertie to walk you through patterns via a monthly video tutorial? Need to ask other fellow artists their opinion on your fabric choices on the Charm Artist Collective Discord Server? How about sneak peeks at upcoming Charm Patterns? The four subscription levels also offer a variety of discounts and rewards.

What’s Patreon?

Patreon is a platform for creators that enables them to create monthly subscriptions. This gives the subscribers exclusive content in a variety of formats, at a reasonable price.

Which tier is right for me?

Check out all of the subscription options to see what’s included. For example, the Poet tier gives you access to the monthly pattern and accompanying video tutorials, and exclusive livestreams. The Artist tier gets all that, plus exclusive fitting videos and 6-8 bonus patterns from guest designers throughout the year. Each tier offers more benefits, with the ultimate Bohemian Princess  plan giving you everything from video tutorials and livestreams, plus discounts, rewards, and more patterns in various formats.

Patreon F.A.Q.

Our Patreon community has several tiers so you can customize your experience. All tiers get a monthly sewing pattern with a companion video tutorial, access to the Discord sewing community, a monthly live event with Gertie, and sneak peaks at upcoming Charm Pattenrs. The four subscription levels also offer a variety of discounts and rewards. The best way to learn more about Patreon is to check it out for yourself!

How do I get the "x" pattern?

When you join Patreon, you get access to ALL previous patterns released at your subscription tier (with the exception of the Starburst Pattern, which was a special exclusive for patrons who joined us during the very first month). If you don't see the pattern you want listed above, it might be a Charm Pattern, one of our free pattern releases, or included in one of Gertie's books.

What if I only want one Patreon pattern?

If you've fallen in love with one of the Patreon patterns, feel free to join for one month, download your pattern (and anything else that strikes your fancy!), and then cancel your Patreon membership. There is absolutely no obligation to stick around - although, once you check out all your patron benefits, I'll bet you'll want to!

Why can't I access a pattern or see some posts?

Each tier has different rewards, and those rewards will be locked and inaccessible to non-patrons and members at a lower-level tier. If you want to get access to a pattern or post, just join or upgrade your tier level.

When should I join?

This is a great question! You can join at any time, but we suggest you wait until the beginning of the month. Patreon will process your membership fee on the day you join (for that month) and on the 1st of every month following, as long as you stay a patron.

What if I paid for the year, but now I want to upgrade my tier?

No problem! You can upgrade and you will only be charged the pro-rated annual difference between your old and new tiers.

Wait, what? I can pay for a year all at once?

Yes, and it's an awesome way not to deal with monthly charges or worry that you might miss out if you get a new credit card or your card expires. And it makes a great gift, too!

How do I cancel?

You can easily cancel your Patreon membership, and this link will show you how.
