So let's recap

At Frade we do:

  • Sustainability - our core mission is to reduce fabric and yarn waste.

  • Humanity - we also want to positively impact peoples lives

  • Community - and be part of a collective consciousness

  • Individuality - while always treasuring your individuality

  • Fun - always be fun!

How much does Frade cost?

Essentially…. It's FREE!

It is really important to us that Frade be accessible to EVERYONE regardless of personal circumstance.

HOWEVER, we do have some skin in the game.  Websites like this one don't build and maintain themselves.  We have operational costs, a growth plan and significant goals we want to achieve.  In the interest of being transparent here’s how this looks:

  • As we grow we will need to buy boring things like server space to make sure the website runs quickly and efficiently - cause let’s be honest, a slow website is a total turn off.  
  • We also want to grow the Frade team.  Lucy and I have full time jobs and young families.  We want and more importantly need a team around us.
  • We want to build more functionality into the website.  We are delighted with the functionality we have been able to achieve with the budget and skills that we have.  But we are also excited to push beyond this and see what else we can create, based on your feedback.
  • We want to create a collection of scrap busting patterns that use one metre or less of fabric.  And because we aren’t pattern designers we will need to outsource these skills.
  • And lastly, we want to donate to causes that align with our mission as conscious makers.  The charities we have chosen are Ekos and Labour Behind the Labels - you can read more about these charities here.

So, we have created two additional paid membership options and are relying on the integrity and support of the maker community to contribute what you can.

You can switch between any of these membership options at any time.

We are committed to delivering you an awesome Frade experience and we strive to continually improve as we grow.  This is our promise to you.
