  1. I've totally enjoyed getting the Sew Sampler box every month, and just have this month's block to make to finish up the sampler quilt. Thanks for a fun year!

  2. This box was excellent (just like everyone I have received)!!!! I LOVE the Wonderland fabric!! Thank you for such wonderful surprises every month!! Looking forward to starting the new sampler quilt next month!!!

  3. The magnetic pin bowl is my favorite. Of course, I always love fabric, thread, patterns, etc. I'm looking forward to the next series of quilt recipe cards. It's so much fun to have a gift-to-myself to look forward to every month. And if the fabric is something I can't use or the notions ones I already have (& probably have duplicates of already), my friends & relatives enjoy the things I pass on.

  4. THANK YOU, FQS! Each month is better than the last for the sampler boxes. I'm am always amazed at the great value. I have loved all the products. There is nothing I have been disappointed with. Continue to offer us quality products!

  5. I agree that this was the BEST box ever but there is not a single box I would have given up. I love the magnetic bowl. What a treat this Sampler Box is for me each month. The notions are super, the fabric lovely, the recipe cards well written, patterns are doable with the fabric provided. The very few things I have already are donated to my Guild for the Beginner Quilter basket. They were appreciative of what I gave them. I plan to continue the program as it is reasonably priced for the items I receive.

  6. I like the March box. I can't figure out why the two rayon pieces in with the fat eighths? As nice as they are, what are they used for?

  7. I absolutely LOVE receiving my Sew Sampler box each month……one of the really good days!! These are wonderful, perfect and what a saving on some of the very best notions and quilting goodies for us. Thank you FQS, YOU ARE THE BEST!!!������������

  8. I love all the goodies this month…I know I say that every month!! The fabric and thread are so great, can't wait to use them but I have to admit my breath caught when I saw the magnetic pin bowl!!! WOW, I love it <3 Thanks FQS for always doing such an wonderful job on the Sew Sampler boxes and with every order I place too.

  9. I do enjoy receiving the boxes each month and usually love the contents. Love the pin bowl this month! The Wonderland fabric is not really my style but I will try to use it up in small squares or applique. I know it's hard to please everyone all the time so I think a certificate for a charm square or other precut of ones choosing would be a great addition for a box in the future. It is fun opening up the surprises!

  10. Hey good job this month!!! I absolutely love, love, love the magnetic pin bowl. Thread is always welcome and I really like the pattern enclosed as well. Not really excited about the fabric though. I've come to realize that the fabric you send is a bit on the juvenile side, through I love getting the boxes every month, I will have to give some thought to continuing though based on the fabric. It's tough to please everyone and I'm sure you do your best to make us all happy.

  11. Love the box this month. I saw mentioned in the comments that someone thought the fabric was juvenile. I haven't found that to be true. This months fabric is not one I would have picked on my own but that is the fun of the box. Gets me out of my comfort zone. I didn't subscribe from the beginning so I am glad I will be for the second series. Can't wait for April!! Thank you for all your efforts!!! I have really enjoyed this! pam

  12. I subscribed for 8 months and then felt I had enough. I still treat myself to the recipe cards and any item I really like – this month I bought two of the magnetic pin bowls. Looking forward to seeing the new boxes and new recipe cards. 🙂

  13. I loved the March box, like everyone else. I will make place mats with the teacup fabric, for my sister who has just opened an Air BnB in Va and she can enjoy the place mats in her breakfast room. I also wondered about the 2 rayon pieces. Keep up your great work. Oh, BTW Where do I look for the new "layer cake pattern cards I just hope everyone is as happy as I am. And looking forward to starting the new quilt next month.

  14. Each month is a bonus to me,i wait patiently, as it takes a wee bit longer here to reach me in New Zealand.I really enjoying my monthly treat.Merran

  15. My box arrived this morning in Perth Western Australia the quickest delivery yet. Loved the contents!

  16. From viewing the last year's reveals I think the fabric choices are somewhat leaning to that of a young female. They are pretty but a little sweet goes a long way.

  17. Oh my goodness! Thank you son much for this month's (March 2017)???? I'm in LOVE with the fabric Wonderland, the magnetic bowl, the cotton & steel thread…. Every single item you sent was Fantastic!! I can't wait to see what comes next. My daughter and I share a monthly box for the last 7 months now. So excited with your boxes!
