    Please Check Out Fan Funding, Supporting Ad Free Tutorials!

    I am waiting patiently for this feature to go live on UK YouTube Channels. It’s already available in the US. This will surely encourage more to share their skills for free.

    I will be creating many more freely available InDepth Videos on my Channel and my Site. In the meantime Fans who would like to throw something in the ‘tip jar’ can do so here.

    Thanks to everyone who is supporting this idea. Despite my sons’ assurance that everyone expects and accepts advertising on videos and websites, I for one always find it intrusive.

    I have a new video on YouTube – An Introduction to Sewing Jeans for Men and Especially using Selvedge Denim. They are going mad for Selvedge Denim in the US!

    For all the men on my membership, I have at last published a pattern just for them. It has to be jeans of course. Selvedge jeans have become a must-have it seems, so here is my pattern, drafted in 10 sizes, 26-44. There will be a tutorial to follow for beginners but in the mean time my original sewing jeans video series will be a pretty good guide.

    Although these jeans are drafted to take advantage of authentic narrow loom selvedge denim, they are great made up in any non-stretch denim. Non-members can buy the pattern.

    I don’t know how they calculate views here on BurdaStyle. It’s a shame they don’t add all the views from Projects, Techniques and Pattern Downloads.

    So I suppose it’s just Profile views – Anyone else think that’s strange?

    The Joining Fee for angelakane.com is going up tomorrow (1st October) to £25. It is still only £5 per year after that for Subscribing Members.

    I have a new deal for those of you who are only interested in Patterns or just the Videos. From tomorrow it will be £18 for the first year to access all my Patterns and eBooks. Alternatively for £18 you can access just the In-depth Videos, again I am including the eBooks. This suits experienced sewers who would like to use my patterns or those who want to learn from my videos but have their own patterns.

    I think you will agree this is pretty good value – currently 27 Patterns, 4 In-depth Sewing Courses and 2 Sewing eBooks. I am still developing my ideas for this site so content will continue to expand.

    Thank you to all my BurdaStyle Friends who have already joined.

    My Video Series, Sewing a Classic Lined Sleeveless Dress now features a transcript.

    This is a much requested feature and I shall be adding them to my Videos for Members. It’s a great way to glance through the contents of a video and get to specific techniques.

    In the UK many sewers have been enjoying The Great British Sewing Bee

    I’m hoping this will encourage more people to sew and make their own clothes. It’s great to have sewing on the agenda – don’t you get fed up with all the cooking on TV?

    Next week, among other things, the sewers will be attempting a zip fly opening – not something to be done under pressure. Even I get out my instructions to remind me of the order. I bet they wished they had watched my Making Jeans Video

    I have updated my Pinafore Pattern here on BurdaStyle but the new versions are not showing up on the Pinafore Project. Also I’m unable to update the originals.

    Find the latest versions here in my Studio – Patterns. For more sizes, go to my website.

    I am extending the option to buy any pattern and pay-to-view any in-depth video. Just register as a Free Member. This has proved popular and may become permanent.

    Bundles are new and are great value. Bundles can be upgraded to Full Membership.

    Check out the Roll Collar Coat. The pattern, as with all my patterns, is drafted in sizes 6 to 22. (That’s individually – not multi-size patterns). Included is a detailed instructional PDF and the In-Depth Video to purchase separately.

    Roll Collar Coat Video – Great for beginners but too long, too detailed – it’s taken up much too much valuable time! 17 episodes – every detail filmed. Catch it while you can, it may be the last of my videos from the very start to the bitter end.

    I don’t really regret it. My members now have several examples of start to finish videos. From now on it will be New Skills – short and concise.

    Thank you to everyone who follows my progress and likes my contribution towards encouraging easy sewing.

      Wow! Thank you.

      You’ve been a member since 2010. What have you been doing? Nothing on your profile. I suspect you are busy elsewhere?

      I’m really flattered by the comments that have been posted. Thanks so much. He promised he would write some more about me. Every little helps.

      Yes I have been a bit slow with my pictures. My youngest son usually does them for me but he is now so busy (he’s a film maker as well) I have to join the queue!

      Thanks so much Dotty. I don’t know if I mention it anywhere but I started my first website selling my cashmere knits in 1995. I was reviewed in the New York Times within 2 weeks of launch. My three boys were young and I couldn’t cope with the business and abandoned it. If I’d been a Super Woman I’d be super rich now. I was telling everyone how big the Internet was going to be – “yeah yeah”!

      It’s still in the NY Times archive – called myself Coco Kane (ostentatiously) under an article ‘The Net is not a Snood’ Haha.

      It’s much harder to get the press interested these days.

      Your comment is great. A few more like that and I’m sure he’ll write some more about me.

    John-Paul Flintoff is a well know, highly entertaining, British journalist who loves to get involved in all things green.  He makes his own clothes and has written a book ‘Sew Your Own’ and another ‘How to Change The World’.

    He thinks that what I’m doing is brilliant and has very kindly featured me on his website. He is keen to hear from anyone using my patterns and videos.  Please take a look and maybe leave a comment.  That would be so great.

    John-Paul Flintoff: Something practical

    John-Paul Flintoff writes for many of our National Newspapers and is often on the radio. He is very entertaining so please check him out.

      Thanks irishagold,
      I have just released a new pattern. I’m pleased with it. There is a lot of detail on the pattern and a good instruction PDF.

      Thanks for your support!
