Club BMV - Opinions Please!

I'm sure all of you have heard about Club BMV by now. I've been pondering membership for days now. Would this really be beneficial to me? Here are the membership benefits:

You receive an "extra 10% off" on Butterick, McCall's and Vogue patterns -- even on sale days. Okay... there is a sale at Hancock on tomorrow: Butterick - $1.99 each; McCall's - 5 for $5 and Vogue - 75% off. See, I keep a running list of all patterns that I want and buy them when they are on sale, especially Vogue. For a person like me who does this, is the Club really for me? I do however like the 10% off on Out-Of-Print patterns, but I only look at those once in a blue moon. I don't buy catalogs and I don't subscribe to the magazines. So, should I just get it for the great price of only $12 just to have it? What do you think?


  1. I'm thinking about this now too. Did you ever join? Was it worth it for you?

  2. I share your reservations. Another consideration - shipping charges. I personally have found this to be a deterrent to purchasing on BMV's website.
