Kate sewing in a haystack

Hello! I’m Kate, sewing enthusiast and founder of In a Haystack.

In a Haystack helps stitchers discover sewing patterns for garments and fabric from independent suppliers in a fun, flexible and wallet-friendly way.

I do this by sending digital sewing subscription packs straight to your email inbox every month. The contents of each monthly pack will be a surprise but you can expect to receive:

  • a PDF garment pattern from an independent pattern designer, carefully chosen among thousands of beautiful patterns
  • an exclusive discount code for an independent fabric shop so you can pick exactly which fabric you want
  • tips and tricks, hacks and other sewing-related articles
  • a couple of other treats which could be anything from a podcast suggestion to a voucher for another sewing-related surprise

I love these digital packs because they’re:

Fun: the packs are carefully curated to include exciting goodies. You won’t know in advance what’s included, so expect a tummy-lurch of glee when your pack arrives in your inbox! You’ll also get to sew the monthly patterns alongside a super community of stitchers by following the hashtag #haystackpack.

Flexible: the packs are designed to be flexible. You can choose exactly which fabric, and how much of it, you want. Let’s be honest, browsing fabric from the loveliest of indie companies is a hobby in itself.

Friendly to the wallet: packs cost £10 a month. As many of the patterns included in the packs retail for £8 – £12, you’ve often made your money back even before you’ve explored the rest of the pack.

Friendly to the environment: In a Haystack has the environment in mind. Since the packs are digital, there are no travel-miles involved and you can choose if and when you print out your pattern. By picking your own fabric you’ll be able to create something you will love and wear time and again.

Feel free to sign up to the mailing list and you’ll be the first to know about our news and offers.

I’d also love you to help grow our community on Instagram by sharing your makes using #haystackpack.
