Why Support AA?

Archaic Arcane’s posts and videos will always be free but they do take a lot of time and experience to produce for you.

With that in mind, we’ve created this page in order to ask for your help in supporting the site.  The financial commitment to the server that runs AA, the Internet connection, the Domain registration, video making equipment and the time investment required to bring content to you are not insignificant.

At this time, there are 3 ways you can show your appreciation:

  1. Buy one or more of our patterns at Craftsy.  These patterns make great gifts if you don’t own a featherweight yourself!
  2. Buy a digital copy of one or more of our patterns, sent to you directly after your paypal payment is processed.  To do this, click here to start shopping: https://shop.archaicarcane.com/.
  3. Buy a paper copy of one or more of our patterns, shipped to your door from ours.  We have these patterns printed locally.  The cover is in color and the instructions are in grey scale.  They’re folded and packaged in a plastic bag just like the patterns you see at your local quilt shop.  To do this, click here to start shopping: https://shop.archaicarcane.com/.
  4. Donate directly to AA via PayPal – This is a great option for people who sew or repair sewing machines but don’t quilt or maybe don’t own a featherweight.  You can do this by clicking this link: (Note: As of August 20th, 2017, this link doesn’t work. I’m working on why that is.) If you want to donate, hit that contact button and I’ll send you an email address to use with PayPal.

If we’ve saved you time, money or frustration – please consider supporting the site and encouraging us to continue bringing you that type of content.
