Hi Lovelies! I have some big news – we are now on Patreon!
Patreon is a way to support creators with small monthly contributions that help us make more and better content. In our case, we are heading more into video production and podcastery in addition to working on more books, patterns, tutorials, and interactive ways to up your historical costuming game.
As we’ve been podcasting the past year and more recently trying to create helpful videos, we’ve found that these mediums, while much richer in experience, are also much more skilled and technology-dependent than ye merry olde blog poste.
We’ve noticed, and it’s been fed back by viewers and listeners alike, that we really need to work on our video quality, sound quality, editing, and accessibility features (transcriptions and closed captions). This all costs a fair bit, so we’re asking for help in leveling up…
… and in exchange, you’ll get to see it all, read it all, and listen to it all first. Some of what we have planned will even be exclusively for Patreon subscribers. Here is a little glimpse of what we have in the works for 2019…
- An in-depth dressmaking video series creating a 1790s gown and all the accessories
- A new season of our popular “Fashion History with American Duchess” podcast
- Behind-the-Scenes videos and posts from photo shoots, our headquarters, and events
- Previews from our new book “The American Duchess Guide to 18th Century Beauty”
- Swag! Exclusive patterns, tutorials, and gifts for Patreon members only
- Private Q&A video sessions (group and also one-on-one available)
We have lots of perks and different tiers, from just $1. We hope to make some really awesome stuff for you guys this year, and as always help everyone make their best historical costumes.
