  1. This is an AWESOME Sew Sampler Box this month! Thank you so very much, Kimberly for another great selection of Quilt Fabric, Notions, Reader Glasses with Soft Case, the Kite Foundation Papers and the Wheel Barrow Pattern and all are from Lori Holt’s collection! I really enjoy getting my Sew Sampler Box every month! Thank you! Thank You! Thank You!

  2. If I could give the January SSB 10 stars I would. Absolutely love everything. The wrist pin cushion will be perfect to take to a sewing class or retreat. Planned to purchase the Kite foundation paper so was excited to see it included in the box. The table runner is going to be fun to make. The glasses – just what I needed when working on cross-stitch. Thanks FQS for an awesome box this month. I hope every one this year will be just as awesome.

  3. Reading glasses are a very odd choice in my opinion. I’d prefer the boxes stick with sewing and quilting rather than personal items, which in this case isn’t useful for me but I’m told is worth $10. I’d rather have neutral charm squares or a less expensive box. I’m still trying to figure out whether to donate or throw away the “sassy” labels from a previous box that just seemed rude to me. Thank you for letting me express my opinion.

    1. I really liked this months box but the glasses were not my number, I wear 2.0. I’ll save them in case my eyes need them in the future. I’m going to try to make a small quilt instead of the runner.

  4. This was an awesome sampler box. The glasses are cute and will be helpful when I leave my glasses elsewhere. The table runner is different from anything I’ve made before. Thank you!

  5. I usually enjoy everything in the box, even if I wouldn’t have purchased it separately. However, I can’t use the glasses, and I feel terrible throwing them out because I don’t know anyone that could use them either. Maybe avoid something so specific that could be impossible for people to use? Everything else was cute! And I am using the case for my actual glasses, so that was nice!

  6. I agree the glasses are useless!!! Why can’t thread be included for the kit? Cutting tools, tool holders, clips, mini charm packs something that all quilters could use but not anymore pins or pin related. Way to many pins and pin related items in these last boxes.

  7. This is the best sew sampler box I have received so far! Love everything in it. Can’t wait to make the table runner and try out the kite papers. I recently started cross stitching again and had asked for readers for Christmas. They sent the wrong ones, so I was so thrilled to receive Lori Holt’s readers. I can see clearly now 😆
