save 50% on all our paper patterns

For the last two years we’ve been part of the American Express Small Business Saturday program. Unfortunately, this year Amex is not allowing web-based retailers to participate. We know that many of you have come to look forward to that promotion at this time of year, and we don’t want you to be disappointed.


Paper Pattern Sale


So here’s the deal. This week, we’re offering a 50% discount on all Oliver + S and Straight Stitch Society paper patterns. Fill your shopping bag with paper patterns and use coupon code Holiday2013 at checkout. No American Express card required!

Now, for the fine print: Discount is good on paper patterns only and is not applicable on past orders. Coupon code must be used at checkout for discount to be applied. Offer expires at 11:59 PM ET on November 30, 2013.

    I tried your coupon. It’s giving me a discount of $30 on an order total of $80. That’s less than 50%.

    1. Sharon, the discount is only good on Oliver + S and Straight Stitch Society paper patterns. I’m assuming you’ve added digital patterns or other brands to your shopping bag.

    also in the digital offer a pity that it is not for people like yo who lives far shipping us is very expensive

    1. Joana, we run these sales every so often to help us reduce the amount of inventory on paper patterns we have in our warehouse. Keep in mind that if you use this opportunity to purchase several patterns the savings will more than make up for the shipping cost.

  3. And i just ordered last week:-((

  4. Just wanted to add a positive comment here…50% off!! Wow! What an amazing deal, I am going to use this opportunity to finally purchase some of your patterns that I have had my eye on, thanks so much!

  5. Heather

    Thank you so much for the coupon code! I picked up several patterns and can’t wait to get sewing!

  6. Can’t wait to shop this deal. I love these patterns

  7. Fabricjunkietoo

    Wow! Best sale EVER! Thanks so much! I love it that you have sizes in both little and big.

  8. Kim

    Thank you for the generous coupon! Your patterns are so lovely and it’s a treat to buy a new one, especially at 50%off! On another note, I just made the Lisette Portfolio dress and OH IT is my favorite! Happy Holidays to you!

  9. Stephanie

    Thanks for thinking of us! I purchased several patterns that I’ve been eyeing for quite some time now, as well as two of your new releases. So excited!

  10. Melinda

    So happy you are doing this! For the last two years I have registered my AMEX just to get patterns from Oliver+s. While that deal was nearly free for me I’ll take the 50% as a consolation prize. The AMEX deal is not really worth my time anymore as their online business locator is worthless. Yay for 50% off!

  11. oh thanks so much! I recently ordered about 10 patterns from your ‘secret sale’. I had such a hard time picking and choosing which ones I wanted!!
    Now I just went back and ordered the rest of the paper patterns that I dont have!
    Ha ha, now I just have to slowly work my way though buying the digital patterns (do you ever have sales on them?)
    Thanks so much for such high quality patterns!
    I have already made about 6 things from the patterns I already have.
    I never buy childrens patterns from anywhere else now!

  12. BRILLIANT! I was just thinking how much I HAD to have the new patterns and wondering if I could hold out for a sale. Paper patterns are the best and this is such a generous sale.
    Of course, now I have to go do a stocktake as my Oliver + S pattern shelf is pretty crowded!

  13. Katrina Cavanagh

    Trying to purchase 2 oliver and s paper patterns that should have 50% off and the checkout is only giving me a dicount of about 30%? Why is this?

    1. All paper patterns are covered with the coupon code. It could be that you have a digital in your shopping bag instead.

  14. momsurfing

    no discount given at checkout

    1. You need to use the coupon code when prompted at checkout for the discount to be applied.

  15. Thanks so much, I’m sad my daughter doesn’t fit into your patterns anymore, but now have a nephew that I can buy up more boys patterns for! This is perfect for his Xmas present (he’s too young to care that his presents are sewing patterns for his aunt hehe) BTW I had no trouble at all here in Oz using coupon, and def got 2 for the price of 1! (Yippee)

  16. BeckyP

    What perfect timing! I have been wanting to try your patterns for a while now, but money is tight. The discount pushed me over the edge, and I placed an order today. Woo hoo!

  17. Miss SC

    What a happy way to prepare for winter and spring sewing! I, too, like to have patterns in both sizes; it is especially helpful for those of us still learning how to draft and modify patterns. Each time I sew up an Oliver + S piece, I grow as a sewist. Thank you for producing a quality product: paper, directions, variations and customer support!

    Thank you so much for this wonderful sale. My girls are just nearing the end of the lower size range so I’ve bought this years two collections in digital in the lower sizes hoping to purchase paper versions of the larger sizes when I had the opportunity. Now the very happy owner of 5 new paper patterns. Thank you O+S,
