  1. I have been waiting to comment since I received my box. You must have ESP because two of these items were on my shopping list, the tiger tape (I had an ancient one I threw away) and the Roll & Press which I wanted because I am starting to work with laminated cotton. I’ve been wanting the Blueberry Park fabrics for the pencil soft toy in Love Patchwork and Quilting for my grandson. I even liked the pattern this month. Every single item in my box was a win for me. Thank you so much.

    Oh wait, I also like that you changed the sticker you give us, I’ve been wanting that to happen for a while now. Happiness in a box, that’s what Sew Sampler is to me.

  2. I received my quilt candies early this month, on the 20th. What a surprise. Loved each item especially the tiger tape, great for keeping embroidery stitches even so I can stitch a little faster. Thanks so much

  3. OMG! I LOVE this months box. Thank you so much. I am having sew much fun with this sew sampler every month.

  4. I really enjoyed my box, I love the fabrics and can’t wait to make the Pacific quilt. How ever I did not get the Cliver roll and press in my box.

  5. A terrific box this month. So many useful things!!! The fabrics are so pretty and the pattern and ruler to go with them…’s all great! I can’t wait for the June box! I’m like a kid at Christmas!

  6. I enjoyed my box this month!! I had never heard of tiger tape! Love it all. Thank you so much.

  7. I love every box I get!!! A lot of times, I get things on my wish list. The fabrics are always beautiful and top of the line. Thanks.

  8. Thank you. Love my surprises every month. The tiger tape is winner! And the fat 1/8ths. Love them.

  9. It’s awesome to go to see this website and reading the views of all colleagues concerning this piece of writing, while I am also zealous of getting knowledge.

  10. What you posted made a great deal of sense. However, think on this, what if you added a little information? I mean, I don’t want to tell you how to run your blog, however suppose you added a post title to maybe grab a person’s attention? I mean %BLOG_TITLE% is a little vanilla. You should peek at Yahoo’s home page and note how they write news headlines to grab people to click. You might add a related video or a picture or two to get people interested about everything’ve got to say. Just my opinion, it could bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
