Have you heard of UpCraft Club? It’s a modern sewing association for people who love pdf patterns.  They offer monthly membership, which include a Jo-Ann fabric discount and a monthly free pattern or class.  What is different about the UpCraft folks is that they also certify pdf patterns according to a transparent set of standards.
