Our Advertising Philosophy

Any advertising appearing on the site will be vetted to ensure it fits our demographic and brings something of value to our members. We want to work with companies we love and trust who are just as obsessed with sewing and vintage as we are. As a community, we’re fond of independent pattern companies and supporting small businesses.

Many of our contributing members operate their own vintage or sewing-related businesses. As thanks for their engagement with the community, advertising discounts are available for longtime contributors to WeSewRetro.

  • discounted rates are available for longtime contributors to the site

  • 33% aged 25 to 34, 27% aged 35 to 44
  • 51% located in the USA, followed by Australia, Britain and Canada in that order.
  • over 55,000 visits and 115,000 pageviews per calendar month at last count (June 2013)
  • 11,624 followers combined via facebook, rss, email, pinterest and twitter (with that count going up by 5 in the time it took me to type this sentence, so you get a sense of the speed of our growth). We have a particularly active facebook and pinterest presence.
  • over 840 registered blogging contributors
  • over 20 posts per week on average
We stay firmly focused on our niche  and potential advertisers need to be relevant to our readership.
