  1. I love this month’s box, the colors in the fabric bundle are gorgeous, and the ruler is the cuties thing I’ve ever seen.

    1. You can’t purchase it through Fat Quarter Shop as it’s exclusive to the box. If you’re on Facebook there’s a Sew Sampler swap group you can see if anyone wants to trade or something, other than that you can try eBay or Etsy if anyone is selling theirs.

  2. NOT one of my favorite sampler boxes. Gave away everything but the Mettler thread which I love ❤️ and the “cute” teeny, tiny ruler. Yes, it’s “cute” but not useful or practical – for me. Way too small. I had my hubby drill a hole in it so I could put it on my key chain. Quilt pattern had lots of teeny, tiny squares so me & my old, arthritic hands were not a fan. I use my embroidery unit to quilt with Edge to Edge software so I wouldn’t use the scribbles paper for free-motion quilting. This box made a couple of my sewing buddies happy! Maybe next box will be better for me. Always nice to receive the Sampler box; there’s always something I can use.

  3. I used to look forward to these boxes. It seems like my past 2 boxes, july and august have been shorted items. I did not receive the any thread or tear away quilt paper in august box nor the June tayler quilt bag kit from July Very disappointing to read the blog reveal only to find I have been shorted.

    1. Barb – did you call the Fat Quarter Shop and let them know? Their customer service is the best! Sorry you did not receive some of your items. I’m sure they will make it right if you talk to them.
