Frequently asked questions

We’ll announce each week’s giveaway every Monday (unless it’s a U.S. holiday), through various channels: the dedicated Stitchdown Premium newsletter, the Stitchdown Premium Instagram account, and the Stitchdown Premium Live Chat. 

From there, you just have to signal that you’re interested in the giveaway by following the instructions on each. They’ll be simple, we promise. 

If there are any restrictions to the giveaway—say, certain size range limitations, or where in the world a certain product can be shipped to—that will be noted in all communications about the giveaway. 

Very simply: we’ll announce a discount through all of the Stitchdown Premium channels, along with a special proprietary code that you can use to score your discount on any orders placed through the given brand or retailer in the set window. 

We just ask that all Stitchdown Premium members keep those codes to themselves—and actually, sharing codes outside the Stitchdown Premium community can be cause for membership revocation. We want Stitchdown Premium members to reap the benefits of their membership—not someone who hasn’t supported Stitchdown, as you have. 

Of course! We’re always hard at work investigating the right platform to make this marketplace function best. At the outset, top shoemakers and shops will have the ability to list anything they’re offering for discounted sale in the Stitchdown Premium Live Chat portal. 

We want to get everything up and running during the early-access period of Stitchdown Premium for just a short period before you’ll see shoes in there, but it won’t take long at all. Once it does, we’ll keep a close eye on how that’s functioning, and always strive to make the experience better for everyone involved. 

Our live chat is hosted on a platform called TKTK, which was selected after testing literally dozens of solutions—we feel like it best supports what we’re looking to develop with the Live Chat. 

Which is, to be more specific: deeply engaged conversation about quality footwear, discussions about what people love and what they’d love to see more of, help with sizing and lasts and leathers and everything else that can help arm you to make the right decision for your next purchase. 

And of course all subscriber benefits will be announced through the Live Chat, in addition to the subscribers-only Instagram feed and newsletter. 

If you purchased the wrong membership by accident, reach out to membership@stitchdown.com and we’ll get everything squared away. Otherwise, memberships are not refundable—but you can rest assured in the knowledge that all contributions at any level go directly to supporting Stitchdown’s content and operations. And that means a TON to us over here.

To make things easier all around, all memberships renew automatically every month. You can unsubscribe from your membership at any time, as long as you do so 24 hours before the renewal date. However, the full charge for your term will remain, and we are unable to pro-rate memberships that a member choses to end early.

Early access means exactly that—we’re initially limiting the number of Stitchdown Premium subscribers to 200 over the first two weeks after launch. Growth is great, but we want to ensure that everything is working exactly the way we—and you—want. 

So really it just indicates that things are still early. And that the price might increase for future subscribers. But the benefits are all very real, and the overall subscriber pool being smaller is actually a very good thing for you—especially because it means you having an even better shot at winning giveaways.

Probably! But honestly, the real answer is: all support is essential to keeping Stitchdown going. If you just can’t make the $5/month work to become a Premium member, or the benefits don’t appeal to you for whatever reason, that’s completely fine—and Stitchdown’s content is there for you to enjoy and learn from every day. But we would greatly, GREATLY appreciate if you considered a $2/month donation to support its ongoing creation. 

Or alternately, you can just join at any time, so there’s no reason to spend the rest of your life wondering how things could have been.
