Sew Sampler April 2016 Box Reveal!

We are thrilled to finally be able to show you the contents in our very first Sew Sampler Subscription box. FQS proudly presents to you our April box!

If you are not in the loop about our shiny new subscription box, check out our Sew Sampler Subscription Box page. It’s a wonderful gift idea for Spring as well (hint hint, Mother’s Day is not that far off!)

Each Sew Sampler box will have a theme, and this month’s theme is Welcome to the Neighborhood – we thought it was very fitting for our first box!  Inside your box you will find a welcome card that acts as an emergency phone list, and it just so happens to have our phone number on it for any fabric emergencies you may have.

Screw B Do
Magnetic Screw Driver
A finger friendly screwdriver that fits all brands of sewing machines!  The soft gel-coated grip is ergonomic for one-handed operation.  Made in America by a US Marine.
Each package includes 2 miniature (1.25″) magnetic flathead screwdrivers that come in a variety of colors.

Cotton Candy Embroidery Scissors
Sew Mate
These scissors are so light!  The see-through plastic covering on their handles makes them super comfortable to use.
Each comes with its very own color-coordinated plastic point protector that snaps into place.  Colors may vary.

Quilt Dots
Custom Fat Quarter Shop, magnetic Quilt Dot perfect for your collection – or in this case, for hanging your Emergency Phone List up on your refrigerator!

This item was created specifically for this Sew Sampler box and is not available for purchase.

We didn’t stop there, you’ll also find a quilt block recipe pattern in your box for 8″, 12″ and 16″ blocks.

This is a collectible card, and you can expect to receive one in every box.  At the end of the year, we will have a finishing pattern as well.  If you want to sew along with us, pick up the coordinating Fat Quarter Bundle we created using Bella Solids.

  3. I have been working on a big project at work, and coming home to the surprises in the box was just what I needed! Thanks!

  4. Receiving the first sampler was so exciting, made me feel like a kid again. Using each item will bring a smile as I remember opening the Sample Box for the first time. Thank you!

  5. Really fun to slowly open and look at each item! I've already used the ruler today on my Crossroads quilt!
    Is it May yet?! LOL!

  6. Oh! I just love my sampler. It's so wonderful to receive surprises in the mail πŸ™‚ And I was just asking my husband why we didn't have any little magnetic screwdrivers because I kept losing the screw while changing the foot on my little machine. These so super cool and pretty. The ruler is fab … can you tell I'm just a little thrilled? LOL

  7. I absolutely loved my box. I made a quilt for an auction for a little girl who is very sick. I am so excited for the next one!

  8. I absolutely adored my first box and was very thrilled that I signed up in time to get in at the beginning. It's so exciting!
