  1. Someone please correct the typo in paragraph #1, line #3, first word. Thinking you meant it to read public.

  2. Oh, I really hope it is the Ruby Anniversary 45mm Rotary cutter!!
    It has not released yet. Fingers crossed for this month!

  3. I would LOVE the Ruby anniversary cutter! I don’t care what anybody says-you can never have too many rotary cutters 🙂

  4. Ahhh I just purchased the limited edition store and stash, hoping for the Ruby rotary cutter. Fingers crossed. Whatever it turns out to be I’m positive it will be awesome!!

  5. I am hoping for the anniversary ruby red OLFA limited edition rotary cutter but really am happy for whatever comes in the box.

  6. How exciting! I hope it is the new Olaf ruby red rotary cutter!🥳
    I can’t wait to receive my box and start sewing!
    Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!!

  7. Is it the Ruby rotary cutter, sew and store, or is it the Ruby Aurifil?

    Thanks for the laugh with the typo mentioned by Arrowhead Gramma.

  8. Why is everyone going crazy over the anniversary cutter? I don’t get it. Is it mostly because it’s a limited addition or is there something special about it?

  9. Hoping and crossing my fingers it’s the ruby Olfa. I dont need another cutter, but I’ve been lusting after that one.

  10. Ruby gem fabric precuts and sharp needles are my guess. I have been very wrong every month, but this time maybe I am a bit closer…

  11. I never get these hints. I always have to read other people’s comments and then I get it. LOL. Doesn’t matter. I always enjoy getting my Sew Sampler box. It’s a gift to me every month. Thank you Fat Quarter Shop!

  12. Wow… the Olfa would be fantastic. I was just thinking during a marathon cutting session this afternoon that, as MargeW said, you can’t have too many cutters. But… this will be my third Sew Subscription box, and I’ve been elated with the first two (and the Jolly Box, too), so I’m sure whatever is planned will be fabulous.

  13. Me too hoping it is the Olfa Ruby 40th anniversary rotary cutter.. wow that would be fantastic! Whatever it is. FQS has never disappointed.

  14. Oh the Ruby Olfa rotary cutter would be fabulous! I would love to add that to my growing collection of colors! ❤️

  15. I hope it’s not another rotary cutter…there is NOTHING sore niesal about a red rotary cutter.please be more creative.

    1. I have bout a dozen. Many times a new cutter cost the same as a blade at some quilt shops so why not buy the cutter?

    2. I agree with you. I have gotten a pink one and a blue one. I don’t even like Olfa cutters because of arthritis in my right hand I have trouble opening and closing the blades.

  16. . This box includes a ‘gem’ that has not even been released to the pubic yet!

    This is hilarious! Thanks for the giggle Fat Quarter blog writer. LOL

  17. Oh I hope it’s not another rotary cutter!! We received 2 this past year and I have more than I can possibly use. I’d love me some ruby fabric however.

  18. Not to be a Debbie Downer, but I just looked job the Ruby cutter. I don’t get the big deal about it. It’s just another color rotary cutter. We just got a pink one.
    My opinion only, which I always say counts for nothing.

  19. OOoh I don’t really have a clue since this will be my first box but, I cannot wait to get it!!! I’m so excited & it can’t get here fast enough 🙂

  20. Ugh! I hope it’s not another rotary cutter. I already have 2 and don’t need another just because it’s a different color. I hope it’s something else.

  21. If it’s the Ruby rotary cutter @18.98 retail that doesn’t leave much for the rest of the box unless fq shop is really splurging on us this month

  22. Personally I would love the Ruby rotary cutter…I’ve been waiting for it to come out to buy it anyway. I have several rotary cutters but I enjoy having more than one. Whatever is in the Sew Sampler I know it will be lovely. December’s Sew Sampler was FABULOUS!! Loved every little thing in there!

  23. Everyone seems pretty set on the Ruby cutter, which would be nice, but I’m going against the grain and guessing the new “So Ruby” fabric line, which I saw in my local shop and thought was darling. Red and white fabric makes sense to me for Valentines!

  24. I’ll hope you’re right, Brooke. Having already received 2 rotary cutters in Sew Sampler boxes in the past few months, I’d prefer something else. Looking forward to it!!

  25. Oh goodness, now I cannot wait for my box!!! I am a red girl all the way!! I sure do hope it’s that Ruby rotary cutter by Olfa…..will be over the moon!!! I am usually so darn happy anyway, but that would really put me over the edge!!

  26. Ask any of my friends and I’ll tell you my favorite color is red. So I will be excited whatever it is

  27. Celebrating 40 years of OLFA! The rotary cutter revolutionized quilting! Would love to have a Ruby 40th Anniversary OLFA! Perfect! Fill the box up FQS! A great start for the NEW YEAR!

  28. lots of fun guess on what the special item is… I am liking all of them. the ruby red rotary cutter, the red fabric line, pins and needles- how about even a lovely seam ripper?

    1. It has been quite awhile since we received a seam ripper, and my last one is getting dull. Would not mind a new one thrown in there…especially a red one. A red seam ripper would make me less sad when I need to “unsew” something!

  29. Red Olaf cutter (fingers crossed that it’s 60mm), fabric from Ruby Star Society, a cute pattern for a zippered pouch, a couple of cool zippers & a pack of schmetz Chrome microtex needles. Pretty please? With sugar on top!

  30. I’m seeing everyone is so excited about this rotary cutter. I’m curious if it has some special feature. I must say, I’ve only received boxes for about 6 months but have already gotten 2 rotary cutter so I’m hopeful it is a different tool.

  31. The box really isn’t about it’s contents! It’s about returning us to our childhood waiting with anticipation for our SURPRISE!!! Thank you Fat Quarters for helping me to ANTICIPATE………

  32. Ruby Red 40th Anniversary 45mm Rotary Cutter, Ruby Star Society fabric (formerly Cotton & Steel), and gem-tipped needles?

  33. I immediately thought it was going to be some of the new line from the fabulous ladies at Ruby Star Society, but not sure after reading everyone’s comments. Now I am really excited to see what is in the box.

  34. Ok, my guesses that it might be ruby red cutter YAYYYY, Handmade thread Gem, yayyyy (thinking hand binding) best press spray star gem setgift bag? Mini gem…fabric? I don’t know but there are some guesses. I know I always love what ever you all put together!! So I’m sure it will be A GEM OF A BOX LIKE ALWAYS💎🔻♦️

  35. Well, that marketing tool worked well. I had never even considered getting one of those sampler boxes! But, I just Subscribed! 🙂

  36. I’m new to the Sew Sampler box this will be my first my guess would be Ruby material to make something for Valentines day?????????????

  37. I am wondering if it is the “Gemstone” fabric collection for Whistler Studios for Windham Fabrics! Oh, the suspense!
