9 Ways to Get FREE Plastic Canvas Crafts Patterns from Kathy Barwick...

 

Have you been missing out on my FREE plastic canvas patterns?

 

Are you aware there are nine different ways to get FREE plastic canvas crafts patterns from me?

 

Hey there, fellow plastic canvas crafter, Kathy Barwick here...

 

Lately I've been giving away so many FREE plastic canvas patterns; I can hardly keep track of them all.

 

That's why I decided to compile a list of how you can get FREE plastic canvas patterns from me, and send it out to you by email so you'll have it handy.

 

So without further adieu, here's the list:

 

1. You'll get 5 FREE original plastic canvas crafts patterns in PDF format, by return email, when you register to be notified when my new book, Plastic Canvas Crafts Secrets is available!

 

If you haven't done so already, just go to www.AddictedToPlasticCanvas.com and register to be notified when my new book, Plastic Canvas Crafts Secrets is finally ready!

 

When you register, your 5 FREE plastic canvas patterns will automatically be sent to you in PDF format by return email!

 

Also, be sure to forward this ezine to your fellow plastic canvas crafters, so they can get the 5 FREE patterns, too. I'm sure they'll thank you for thinking of them!

 

2. Get More FREE plastic canvas patterns on my Krafty Kats blog...

 

By following my blog (you have been following my blog, haven't you?), you'll learn how to get even more FREE plastic canvas patterns from me.

 

I'm always posting new patterns, or ways to get FREE patterns, on the blog! Here are just a few examples of the FREE patterns available for you on the blog, right now...

 

 

So click on any of the above links that might interest you, or go to my blog at this link and scroll through the articles until you find patterns that you like!

 

3. Check out past issues of my FREE Plastic Canvas Crafts Ezine 

 

There are already 18 issues in the archives, and the following two issues contain FREE patterns I know you're going to love:

 

 

Other FREE ezines in the archives are chock full of great hints, tips and techniques for making your plastic canvas creations stand out like never before.

 

So be absolutely sure to read through the ezines in the archives and learn more about how you can take your plastic canvas crafting skills to the next level and beyond!

 

4. Play FREE BINGO online and Win FREE Plastic Canvas Patterns!

 

Members of my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook get to play FREE Bingo, and the winner of every game gets to pick ANY pattern of their choice priced at $10.00 or less - absolutely FREE -- from my Etsy store.

 

I'll even pay the postage if you choose one of the printed patterns instead of a PDF pattern (which are normally sent by email).

 

All you need to do is play Bingo, WIN and tell me which pattern you want.

 

(The only exclusion to this game is patterns from the Featured Artist category. But all other categories are wide open to choose from - literally hundreds and hundreds of great plastic canvas patterns!)

 

To play FREE Bingo and compete for FREE plastic canvas patterns, just join my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook and watch for the Bingo game announcements!

 

5. Win A Free Plastic Canvas Pattern... Drawing On The First Day Of Each Month

 

Purchase any item from my Etsy store and you'll automatically be entered into the drawing for a FREE plastic canvas pattern.

 

Drawings are held on the first day of each month. Winners are notified immediately, and your choice of FREE pattern is published on my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook!

 

So, go to my Etsy store right away and check out the over 1000 patterns I've got listed there, including many of my own original plastic canvas creations, as well as numerous classic and difficult-to-find patterns from Annie's Attic International Plastic Canvas Club,Leisure Arts Plastic Canvas All Stars, and The Needlecraft Shop Plastic Canvas Collector's Series.

 

Each item you purchase puts your name in the drawing to be held on the first day of the following month. The more items you purchase, the more times you're entered to win a FREE pattern!

 

6. Play the Winning Hand Game and Win a FREE Plastic Canvas Pattern!

 

Another way to win FREE patterns is to play The Winning Hand Game.

 

I've listed over 100 special patterns in the section of my Etsy Store called Winning Hand Game. What makes these 100 patterns special is that they have a picture of an Ace from a deck of playing cards next to them.

 

When you buy any four of these items with the Ace playing card in the listing, you'll then have a Winning Hand.

 

And best yet, you don't have to purchase all four items at once! I'll keep track of your purchases over time, and the amount of Aces you've accumulated. And I'll notify you immediately by email when you have a winning hand.

 

For each Winning Hand you'll be able to pick any pattern you like for $10.00 or less - absolutely FREE!

 

(Again, the only exclusion to this game is patterns from the Featured Artist category. But winners can choose their FREE patterns from all other categories, which gives you hundreds of choices!)

 

7. Play the Bingo Symbol Game and Win a FREE Plastic Canvas Pattern!

 

I've listed over 85 special patterns in the section called Bingo Symbol Game on my Etsy Store 

 

Each of these listings contains a letter from the word B-I-N-G-O. In other words, some of these listings have a "B", some have an "I"; some have an "N", and so on.

 

All you have to do is purchase five items that spell the word BINGO, and you'll be able to pick any pattern you like for $10.00 or less.

 

You don't have to purchase these items all at once. I'll keep track of your purchases and the letters you have, and I'll notify you immediately when you have the word BINGO.

 

(Once again, please note that items from the Featured Artist category are not included in this game. But winners can choose their FREE patterns from all other categories.)

 

8. Pick a FREE plastic canvas pattern of your choice!

 

For every $5 you spend on my Etsy store you can pick a FREE pattern of your choice from the seven cool patterns featured below.

 

Spend $10 and choose two FREE patterns...spend $15 and choose three FREE patterns, etc., all of the way up to seven FREE patterns!

 

Sunburst Coaster Pattern

 

Sky Blue Pink Coaster Pattern

 

Pink-Tiara Coaster Pattern

 

Love the USA Coaster

 

Tiny Cross Pattern

 

3D Pansies

 

Bargello Beauty Magnet

 

 

Remember, you can pick any one of the 7 cool patterns above - FREE - for every $5 you spend on my Etsy Store!

 

So be sure to check out the over 1000great patterns and plastic canvas crafts supplies now listed on my Etsy Store.

 

I promise, you'll find it to be one of the most complete collections of classic and difficult-to-find plastic canvas patterns you've ever seen, plus my own original patterns and patterns from my featured artists!

 

9. FREE Follow-Along Purse Patterns

 

From time to time on my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook, I post instructions, in increments, showing how to create my latest purse patterns.

 

This is the purse that is posted now - the Purple Passion Purse. There will be other purses posted in upcoming weeks!

 

You can follow along and work the pattern day-by-day as I post the instructions in increments.

 

Or, you can save the instructions to a file as I post them, if you want to stitch the purse at a later time.

 

Please...No "Sharing"...

 

All I ask is that these special follow-along purse patterns are not shared, scanned, or distributed in any form.

 

They are my original patterns...they are copyrighted by me...and I alone hold the rights to distribute them to others.

 

Each purse pattern will stay posted on my wall until all of the instructions have been given to complete the purse.

 

Then I will extend the time for one week after the final set of instructions has been posted. I'll post the date that the pattern will be removed, so you'll have plenty of time to finish up.

 

After that final week is up, the pattern is removed from my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook, and is put up for sale on my Etsy Store.

 

So...the smart thing to do is join my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community right away, and watch for the purse patterns to be posted on the Wall so you can get them while they're FREE!

 

2 Things to Do Right Away...

 

So, if you haven't joined my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook, now is certainly the time to do so!

 

A new Bingo game will be starting soon. And a new purse pattern is already in the planning stages!

 

And in the meantime, you can get tons of great new ideas for plastic canvas creations of your own, by checking out all of the cool finished projects being posted by hundreds of other talented plastic canvas crafters on the Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community wall!

 

And of course, be sure to go to my Etsy Store right away and browse through the over 1000 plastic canvas patterns and supplies now available there.

 

I promise you'll find it to be one of the greatest collections of plastic canvas crafts patterns you've ever seen in one place!

P.S. I've been buying more of the older, classic and difficult-to-find plastic canvas patterns to post for sale on my Etsy store, whenever I can find them.

 

They're getting harder and harder to find. But some of the latest ones I've added are truly one-of-a-kind. So be sure to check them out while they're still available.

 

Also, I've had several inquiries for certain patterns after they've already sold. If you see a pattern that has been sold and is not relisted, that means I don't have another. It's gone. That's the problem with these older, classic patterns. People snap them up as soon as they see them!

 

P.P.S. Have you joined my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community yet? If you haven't done so, be sure to join with me and over 600 other hard-core plastic canvas crafts addicts on my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook -  

 

-- where you can exchange ideas, show off your most recently worked projects, and get great ideas and lots of inspiration from looking at the projects posted by other experienced plastic canvas crafters!

 

Plus, you can ask and answer questions, learn new techniques, discover new ways to embellish your projects, and make TONS of like-minded friends in the process!  

 

It's fun and exciting, and we even play online Bingo in which you can win FREE plastic canvas patterns, and there's no cost to play!  

 

And of course we have the FREE follow along patterns.

 

So what are you waiting for? Join my Plastic Canvas Crafts Designer's Community on Facebook, and get in on all of the fun!
