Sew Sampler November 2016 Box Reveal!

We can’t believe it’s time to unbox another Sew Sampler! We know that the goodies inside this month’s box deserve a special place in your sewing room! This month’s box theme is Thankful.
We hope that you enjoyed some good food and warm memories with your loved ones during the holidays! Here at Fat Quarter Shop, we are so thankful that we get to share our love of quilting with all of you every day! We are also pretty thankful for this month’s Sew Sampler box! If you have received your box, you know what a treat it is! Check out all of the items that were included!
Not one, but TWO charm packs of Olive’s Flower Market by Lella Boutique for Moda! These colors are so perfect for fall, and there are so many fun prints to play with and mix!

You can never have too many Schmetz sewing needles! This month’s box had THREE different sizes: 90/1480/12, and 70/10! (You may recognize these beauties from our sneak peek photo earlier this month!)

You can never have enough of the perfect thread – and the natural white 50wt Aurifil thread is our definition of perfect!
Good things come in small packages, like this adorable reversible 5″x 8″ Lori Holt cutting mat! Blue on one side and pink on the other, you can switch it up to match your decor!
The C’est La Vie pattern was designed exclusively for Fat Quarter Shop by Vanessa Goertzen of Lella Boutique! This pattern plus the adorable Olive’s Flower Market charm packs will make the sweetest quilt!
BONUS! The Fat Quarter Shop 2017 Calendar is the perfect size to put on your sewing table! Each month has a little motivational quote to keep you on track to finish your projects!
This is a collectible card, and you can expect to receive one in every box.  At the end of the year, we will have a finishing pattern as well.  If you want to sew along with us, pick up the coordinating Fat Quarter Bundle we created using Bella Solids.
We hope that you loved this month’s box as much as we did! If you haven’t signed up for the Sew Sampler yet, don’t delay! We have so many fun treats packed for the end of 2016, and it’s the perfect gift that keeps on giving!


  1. I love, love, love receiving my Sew Sampler box each month!!! This box was sew special! Loved the two charm packs, the cutting mat, the Aurifil thread, the Schmitt needles, and the quilt pattern to put them all together. What more could you ask for? The Sew Sampler subscription is my gift to myself because we all deserve something special just for ourselves! Thank you, Kimberly and staff, for knowing exactly what would bless a quilter's heart!

  2. I had a squeal of delight as I opened my Sew Sampler this month! Vanessa is one of my favorite pattern and fabric designers!! I love everything in my Sampler box. Thank you Kimberly! I look forward to my box each month!!

  3. I loved it!! This is only my second box. I wish I had started from the beginning. I did order all the other recipe cards and the fabric bundle . Thank you

  4. The Sew Sampler Box is the only subscription box I receive each month, but from what I've seen on you tube, it is by far the best value!!! I love everything about it, the contents, the packaging and the value. It's nice to have something like this to look forward to each month, so keep up the great work Fat Quarter Shop!! ❤️

  5. Thank you for doing such a great job with these boxes. The items are always the latest and greatest and the value is unbeatable, plus there's usually a little card with special "deals" and I've taken advantage of a few, I hope you continue this program for a while.

  6. I love your Sew Sampler boxes, it's something I look forward to every month. Got my quilting buddy hooked also and we compete to see who gets their box first. So much fun. We even beg to see what one of us has before the other gets their box. Sewing should do this to us? Lol

  7. Every month I say to myself: "There's no way it can be as good as last month's box". And, guess what?! Every month I am so surprised to find that it is indeed BETTER than last month's! I have belonged to other monthly clubs, but this is the only one that I belong to now and it is so worth it! I don't know how you do it, but you are doing a tremendous job of putting together a box that is well thought out and so exciting to receive! Thank you so much! I can't wait for the December box!!

  8. This is my second box, the first didn't seem to have much for quilting BUT this month's was amazing, so many quilting items that I was just speechless (I'm never speechless, LOL). Thank you, great box!

  9. Bravo!! Great surprise box! Last month was my first sampler and I was hesitating on ordering my second one….but this one is truly amazing. Can't wait for December's. I am a buyer!

  10. So excited every month when my box comes! I cancelled my other two boxes and just keep this as a gift to me. Everymonth I think this is the best yet and then next month is better. This month IS the best yet!!!
    Thank you!!!

  11. I am so pleased with all my boxes. I live in Malta, so have to wait a little longer for it to be delivered. Well worth the wait though. I have to stop myself from peeking at the reveal, so I don't spoil the suprise! (I nearly always cheat)! Thank you.

  12. I STILL love my monthly Sew Sampler boxes! They are, without a doubt, the best out there! Thank you so much for a fun mystery surprise every month. FQS is the best! ????❤️

  13. You have absolutely amazed me with every Sew Sampler box!!…I thought I would probably get the first 3-4 boxes and then cancel subscription..I could never guess how you could keep surprising me every time I open a new box…..Keep up the good work!!….THANK YOU….from MaryAnn in Okla…..
