Do you LOVE One Thimble? Would you like to be paid for promoting One Thimble e-zine?
By joining One Thimble’s affiliate program you will receive a 20% commission on sales of e-zine’s that come via your affiliate link to our website.

How Does it work?
When people click on the “hop link ” on your site to visit our site, it sets a referral cookie in their browser (which is active for 3 months) and then redirects them to our site. It is not necessary for them to purchase immediately. Purchases made during the “life” of the referral cookie will be credited to you even if they come back to our site directly at a later date without passing through your link again.

Why do you have an Affiliate Program?
I want to see One Thimble grow and reach all those who are enthusiastic home sewists. The best way to do this is to have those who already “get” what One Thimble is about, share it with those they know. I’m a big believer in win/win and an Affiliate program is a fantastic example of that!

What products are exempt?
Only e-zine sales attract affiliate commissions. Single PDF patterns and other products are exempt.

How & when will I be paid?
Affiliates are paid within three weeks of the months end via PayPal i.e. sales made in January will be paid for in the third week of February and so on.

What do I need to do?
To sign up for our affiliate program you will need to be able to add html to your website or blog so that we can track visits originating from your site and pay you.

1. Fill out the application here. Join our Affiliate Program!

2. Once your application has been approved you will have access to the affiliate area where you will be able to download creatives (images/logos that have your affiliate code embedded in it that you can place on your website) and generate html (code with your affiliate code embedded) that you can use on your website or in your blog.

How can I make more sales?
You can get more out of your participation in our affiliate program by sharing pictures of items you’ve made with our patterns, blogging about our articles and about patterns you love and directing people to your affiliate link when you do so. It’s not about a hard “sell” its about benefiting from something you already do!

To get more out of being a One Thimble affiliate be sure to sign up for the affiliate mailing list (different to the regular mailing list ). Affiliates who’re signed up for this mailing list receive updates about One Thimble promotions & special events that they can promote to their fans to help build their sales. There’s no requirement to sign up for the newsletter and no requirement to act on anything mentioned in the affiliate newsletters. The point of the newsletter is to keep you in the loop and help you get the most out of your participation in our Affiliate program!
