  1. I am so excited each month to get my Sew Sampler box! Every single one has been so amazing and I don't know how you do it but they keep getting better!! Thank you! I'm one happy quilter!!

  2. I have loved every box. They seem to get better and better. With 2baby girls on the way in our church family, I have just what I need for a quilt for one of them with the jolly bar and jolly bar pattern book in the August box! Thank you!

  3. This is my first Sew Sampler box and I'm thrilled! I've had my eye on Sundrops since I saw a preview of it so I was excited to get a Jolly Bar of it, and everything else is just a big fat bonus!! Thanks so much ~ can't wait for September!

  4. What they said, LOL but I'll add one more thing. I had Sundrops on my wish list and was thrilled to see in my sampler box this month. I already have the columns made up within days of it arriving and today plan to finish up the border/sashing bits! Trust me, I never work anything up this quickly.

    THX for the fun surprises each month, FQS team.

  5. Once again I love all my sewing surprises. I love the fabric, the ideas for the fabrics,the beautiful box,the bobbin holder, and all the rest. What fun, thanks for your great selections.

  6. It'seems awesome! Loving it. I just started this club, and can'take wait for the next one.

  7. I am so pleased with my Monthly Sampler Box….I have not been disappointed with anything I have received. I don't know how you do it for the money…but here in England it would cost a lot more than the $58 Dollars that you estimate. I am so excited each month…I just have to get my machine out and sew! Thanks again for such wonderful items..Angela

  8. I love love love the sew sampler. Its brightened my day every time it comes. Thanks so much for being an awesome company. Every month the boxes get better. I can't wait to see what Sept brings me…..You all Rock. Judy

  9. This was my first but im so excited it won't be my last. My bestie Heidi showed me hers and I had to join in the fun! Never seen it before but I can't wait to try the binding tool

  10. I got my Sampler Box today, so perfect as the weather in Norway has been grey, cold and rainy. The box gave me a real doze of sunshine with all the goodies inside 🙂
    Amazing – it made my day. I love love the tin box and allready put my little notions inside, and my first Jolly Bar ever, with the book with patterns, I need to buy more Jolly Bars, that's for sure :-)Have a blessed day everyone 🙂

  11. OMG thank you so much for this beautiful big box of goodness! I now have had 5 boxes and you surprise me on each and every one! Thank you so much and i love the material you added to this box.
    Thank you so much!

  12. I love everything in the box. This was my first box and I was a little worried because I had tried a "mystery box", from another company years ago, and it was very disappointing. I have followed your blogs and videos and have enjoyed things I have purchased from your shop. So, I decided I could trust you and i have been happily rewarded. I cant really pick a favorite but, the Jolly Bar Pattern book is so inspiring and having a Jolly bar included provides instant gratification. Thank-you so much, Ann
    P.S. I am eagerly awaitng September's box????

  13. This was my first sampler box and I was thrilled! I have seen posts about other sampler boxes from other companies, and they are more often than not unimpressed. I decided to take the chance because I had salivated over the reveals from the Fat Quarter Shop, and I say it was money well spent. I ordered the earlier cards and a couple Jolly bars, and will use everything in the kit as I learn to be a great quilter. Thank you!

  14. These are Happy Boxes. I look forward each month to my box coming, I had already bought the rotary cutter from one box and contemplating getting at least a charm pack of the fabric in this box. How do y'all do it? I hope many more people join so these lovely people can never stop sending them.
