What is Martha Pullen TV?
Martha Pullen TV is an online sewing tutorial subscription platform. Launched in 2012, the site offers commercial-free viewing of dozens of sewing video tutorials and is the online home of the long-running PBS television show, Martha's Sewing Room.

The videos are streamed to tv.marthapullen.com members so they can be viewed 24/7 from any computer with a high-speed Internet connection without requiring software downloads (though your computer must have Flash installed; almost all computers already do. And please note our iPad version does not require Flash). You can choose to subscribe to all videos for a 1-month, 6-month or 1-year period. All full-site subscriptions automatically renew at the end of your term, but you can turn this off after ordering if you do not wish to continue beyond the initial term of your subscription. For more information on ordering options, please mouse over the "Buy Shows" link in the top navigation bar & select the type of ordering option you'd like. tv.marthapullen.com is operated by F+W Media, Inc. -- parent company of Martha Pullen Company.

I am having trouble logging in. Does my username and password from Store.MarthaPullen.com, IEC.MarthaPullen.com, or SBCC.MarthaPullen.com work on this site?
Martha Pullen TV is a completely separate site from the other Martha Pullen Company sites and will require all users to create a new account, whether or not you have registered on another one of our sites like the Martha Pullen Store, the Internet Embroidery Club, or the Sew Beautiful Class Club. This is done to ensure the safety of your account information.

Do I need to have a high-speed internet connection to use Martha Pullen TV?
Yes. In order to have a satisfactory viewing experience you'll need to have a high-speed internet connection: typically cable, high-speed DSL or satellite dish.

Most end user access problems are due to connectivity issues on the user side. Even on a high-speed connection, a CPU or RAM resource issue on the client system can cause issues or slowdowns. We have found that one thing a user might try is to clear their browser cache, check their system resources, and/or reboot if need be.

We also often direct people to http://www.speakeasy.net/speedtest/ . This site performs a speed test of the user system, and sometimes reveals a connectivity issue (for example, if a shared cable line becomes bogged down, etc).
Where can I view a free preview of each episode?
To view a preview of each episode, simply click on the "Preview Video" button below any of the episode listings, or in your search results as you browse around the site. You can also access the preview from the any of the episode details pages.
Are these online videos in high-definition?
The newest episodes created for Martha Pullen TV are all excellent quality, but we do not stream them in HD to ensure the best streaming quality. Older videos and Martha's Sewing Room are served in excellent quality, but they are also not in HD since they were filmed before HD technology was around.
What are the options available for purchasing and viewing videos at Martha Pullen TV?
There are three ways to subscribe to view the Martha Pullen TV episodes, all of which offer unlimited viewing of all episodes for either a 1-month, 6-month, or 1-year period! All subscription terms renew automatically if you don't cancel before your term ends.

We recently introduced the monthly unlimited option, which replaced the ability to rent a single video for 6 months. For all of the technique DVDs and for some seasons of Martha's Sewing Room, you can buy DVDs and downloads to own in our store at store.MarthaPullen.com.
Is there a limit on how many times I can view an episode?
No. You can view an episode as many times as you like during the term of your subscription regardless of which subscription you purchased.
If I choose to subscribe to all videos for 1 month, 6 months or 1 year, will I get to see new videos that are added after I submit my order?
Yes. For the time period while your subscription is in effect, you'll be able to view all new videos that we'll add to Martha Pullen TV. We might add a premium channel in the future that requires a special subscription but that is not in the works at this time.
How often are new videos added?
We will be adding hundreds of Martha's Sewing Room videos (until they are all live), as well as several new instruction and project videos in the coming months.
How can I contact you for questions, comments or requests to cancel my subscription
If you can’t find an answer to your question in the FAQ section, please contact customer service from this page.
Can I get a refund if I want to cancel my subscription?
Yes. If you notify us within 7 days of the date you placed your order, we will refund your full purchase amount. Refunds, including partial refunds, are not granted if you choose to cancel your order beyond 7 days of the transaction date. We can only issue a refund to the same credit card you used when placing your order. To ensure that we can look up your order and account information, please include your full contact information along with the name, address and last four numbers of the credit card you used when placing the order you want refunded. To help us improve our service, please indicate why you wish to cancel your order.

What happens when my subscription expires? Can I turn off the auto-renew?
If you subscribed to individual episodes before that option was replaced with the monthly subscription option, when your subscription expires, you'll no longer have access to the videos you've purchased since these subscriptions did not auto-renew (only 1-month, 6-month, and 1-year full-site subscriptions and some special packages auto-renew). However, you can gain access to your favorite videos again (and all other videos on the site) by purchasing a new 1-month, 6-month or 1-year subscription.

If you purchased a full site subscription to view all the videos, your subscription will automatically renew every 1 month, 6 months or 12 month (depending on the subscription term you purchased), until you cancel. You can cancel this by going to your "My Account" link at the top right-hand corner of the site and then clicking the "Stop Future Billing" button on that page.
