We are so pleased to begin carrying PDF patterns! When you make your purchase, you will automatically receive an email containing a zip file. Download the file, and it will open to contain several files: Instructions, and pattern pieces. Most patterns will come with a "Print at Home" option, which will print standard letter size and which you will need to trim and tape together. Our usual preference is to send the "Print Shop" or "A0" version to Sure Copy, where they can print it large scale, saving hours and getting you sewing sooner! Sure Copy is generously offering a 15% Discount on patterns when you mention The Spool!
You can print instructions regular size, or to save paper, consider saving it to a tablet or even phone and keeping them digital!
