Do patterns have a new release day? I know new DVDs and video games are always released on Tuesday. New books are usually released on Tuesdays. Is there anything similar for patterns? My guess is no, that it's just whenever they happen to arrive at the store, but I don't know.

I have no idea but BMV seems to post the new ones per season AFTER a big sale ($1.99 to 3.99).

Maybe we should monitor this, see if there is indeed a pattern (pun intended)

Eep, I'm kind of embarrased to admit that I actually have a spreadsheet with this information, but here are the dates for the Vogue new collections going back to 2008.

Year        Spring       Summer       Fall       Winter
2008       18 Jan       25 Mar       7 Aug        1 Oct
2009       15 Jan       31 Mar       13 July       3 Oct
2010       20 Jan       25 Mar       13 Jul        25 Sep
2011       13 Jan       1 Apr        12 Jul         29 Sep
2012       26 Jan

I haven't kept track of the others, but they're usually staggered.

Fangirl geek, I know.

Hmmm... I'd LOVE to know when the other Big 3 makers release their patterns & how often. Being fairly new to sewing, I've only seen new ones come out for Spring, but I'm guessing they release new ones at least 2x a year???

Thank you for that, Marge! It's good to see that there IS a pattern. It always feels random but it's nice to see it isn't. Plus, that means Vogue should be releasing new ones soon!

Marge, I think you've found your tribe - awesome info, thanks.

Butterick, McCalls, and Simplicity seem to have 6 (or is it 8?) releases a year, while Vogue and New Look only do four...

Using Marge's Vogue release date table (quite excellent) and the fact that the Vogue online sale ends at midnight on Wednesday, I'm going to hazzard a guess and predict that the new Vogues will be out this Thursday. I'm probably wrong, but will be checking Thursday morning.
