We wanted to let you know of a change we are making to the way we charge for Tapestry. During the very early days of Tapestry, most of our customers came from our Early Years Foundation Stage Forum (The FSF). The FSF was available via a £20 subscription paid annually. At the time, it made sense to ensure that the FSF members received a £20 discount on Tapestry and anyone wanting to subscribe to Tapestry would subscribe to the FSF first. However, this system has caused much confusion with customers who are either not aware of what the FSF is, or who would like all their staff to have individual access to it.
We are therefore changing our pricing system for all invoices generated from now, so that the cost of Tapestry is only dependent on the package size you purchase, not also whether you currently have a FSF membership or whether you're buying multiple packages or already have any existing Tapestry packages. You can find our full price list here.
Those of you that joined via an LA scheme will still receive your LA discount all the time your LA continues their participation in the LA membership scheme and we will continue to include access to the FSF for the email address any Tapestry account is set up under. This will allow you to access the resources and FSF community as well as download and pay for Tapestry invoices.
We are also working on a ‘single sign-on’ feature which will make it possible for all Tapestry staff and managers to login to the FSF using the same email address and password they use for Tapestry, so stay tuned for that!
If you have any questions about this, please contact us by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
