How to Find the Free PDF in the Featured Tutorial

Hello dear readers! I’ve had the pleasure of receiving some delightful emails from some of you who are happily downloading a free PDF every day and loving it.

I’ve also been discouraged to receive some angry emails from people who can’t find it. A few people are calling me not very nice names. 🙁

Let me assure you that the link to download the free PDF is at the bottom of the featured tutorial because I personally put it there before I send the newsletter each day. If you can’t find the link, it’s probably because you are scrolling too fast, not because I am one of those not very nice things.

So here are some tips for finding the link to download your free PDF:

  • First make sure you are reading today’s email (meaning not the email from the day before). The date is at the top of the email. Each tutorial is only featured for one day and I remove the link for the free PDF at midnight MST.
  • Next, click on the link for the featured tutorial. Scroll down and look for the words ‘THIS IS TODAY’S FEATURED TUTORIAL!’ surrounded by a pink box, as seen in the example below.
  • Please note that the link is not on the pink box. The link is on the name of the pattern that is below it. The words may be in all caps or underlined.
  • The link is at the bottom of the tutorial, which is not necessarily the bottom of the page. See the example above. If you are scrolling on a mobile device, the sidebar has moved from the side of the page to the bottom of the page. So if you are scrolling really fast, you will scroll right past the link to the free PDF and down into the sidebar content.
  • Some say refreshing the page made the featured content appear, although I haven’t had to do that.
  • In some cases, clearing your browser’s cookies may help. Cookies can sometimes prevent you from seeing temporary text like the featured tutorial information.
  • Remember that the PDF versions of my tutorials are always completely optional. You can move your device to your sewing machine and read the tutorial there and never have to print. You can also use CTRL+P on your computer to print for free!

I hope these tips help and everyone can now find the free PDF for the featured tutorial. I don’t have a customer service department. I try to answer all my emails myself, but I can’t always get to every email.

If I keep getting complaints from people who can’t find the link to the free PDF I will have to stop offering it. How else will I ever have time to sew new things for you? 🙂
