  1. Oh, and you didn’t mention the super coupon (Free Olfa Endurance blade with a $40 purchase). That was a pretty sweet deal.

    And I want to thank you for last months coupon (20% off all notions). And thank you FQS for having such a liberal definition of what constitutes a ‘notion’. (20% off coffee cups!!) I’ve had arguments with the people at Joanne fabrics, trying to convince them that yes — thread is a notion.

  2. Great box. Suggestion, have someone put together the monthly sea project and film it for your website, Utube, blog. Most people are visual learners! Keep up the great boxes.

  3. I am so sad I missed that one. But due to financial issues I had to stop. hope to start again soon.

  4. I loved everything in this month’s box! I mean love! I have a retreat coming up in a couple weeks and I plan on constructing the Sew Mates wall hanging. I already have all the cutting done. Thank you so much for all the “treats!”

  5. This was my fave box so far and I’m pretty sure I squealed with delight when I opened it! I love and will use everything in it. Thank you for putting together such fantastic boxes that are such a joy to receive.

  6. I’m so happy that I found FQS and started my sampler subscription! I love getting the pretty teal box in the mail every month. It’s a special gift just for me to enjoy.

  7. Absolutely LOVED this months Sew Sampler. My favorite one yet! Can’t wait to try out the pattern and was super excited about the fabric selection. LOVED it all!

  8. I really liked the fabric and the tote. I made the tote, but I messed up the patch work. I made it up a little smaller, put pockets on the inside, and it has zipper. It really turned out pretty. Wish you could see it. I am glad you included thread to match.

  9. I was in a different box of the month, did not like it at all! Fat quarter box is great! I am so happy with last months and this months boxes!! Thank-you for the quilting items!!

  10. Oh I just loved this box, but I do love them all, and red is my favorite color, thank you sew much and now i cannot wait for the next one, hurry up February 20th

  11. This is my 4th/5th box and it’s the best by far!! I love everything in it and some of the pieces are not pieces I would buy. This is what I’ve been looking for in a subscription box….new and exciting tools to quilt!!!

    1. Isn’t it a wonderful needle threader! I have four of them now. I throw them in every hand sewing project I have when I travel.

  12. I absolutely loved this box! The Sew Mates pattern and fabric to make this wallhanging are adorable! I plan to hang this in my sewing area. I hung the acrylic Threadology charm block to the Olfa rotary cutter so next time I go to a retreat, I will be able to find it easily. Love, love, love this box! Thanks Fat Quarter Shop!

  13. This was my 4th box, and have to say I loved it. I have already made the spool top, I just have to quilt it. I have never used an Olfa cutter blade, and have to say I love that as well. The cute little bird threader/cutter will come in very handy. Thank you!

  14. This is a fantastic box! My husband was surprised that I received a “tool” because he knows how much they cost. I had told him before that the boxes are a great value. Love receiving this “happy mail”. Thank you!

  15. This is the best box in several months. Thank you for getting something worthwhile in the box. I was getting read to cancel, as the 3 boxes were no help to me and I did not like them. Thank you January my birthday.

  16. Love the box! ❤️Would love to do the project after I finish binding my current quilt.

  17. Yippee….my box finally arrived today, and it is just as wonderful as everyone said! Can’t wait to start the wall hanging.
