Everyone is doing it! 

Every month a box full of selected items from your favorite store can show up at your doorstep. There are subscription boxes available for just about every theme imaginable from every corner of the world. 

One thing for sure is that this little box from heaven seems to show up just when you need a little pick me up the MOST. So treat yourself so some extra sewing love this coming month. 

This is only 1 of 30 available subscription box options from Fat Quarter Shop!

So I decided to join in on the fun myself. I selected one of Fat Quarter Shops 30 different monthly subscription boxes – the Sew Sampler. Yes! They have 30 different subscription collections to pick from! From fat quarter month clubs, thread clubs, floss club, Hoffman Batik club, Moda club, Kaffe Fasset club, …they even have a Pin Lovers Club from Just Another Button Company

What are Fork Pins?

Fork pins are excellent for sewing and quilting and can be used to pin in front of and after a seam. It’s like placing two pins in at the same time but with only one pin.

They can also be used when two slippery fabrics need to be pinned together but you do not want to lift them up off the table for fear the two fabrics will move. Hold a finger down on the fabric and pin the layers together with a fork pin.

Be careful! These pins are super THIN and extra sharp! And they are only .56mm (or 0.02 inches) in diameter. 

Say farewell to crooked rows, lost points and all the seam ripping (and hair pulling) that comes along with it!

When precise, matching seams is crucial to your quilt design, the Clover Fork Pins are the key! The double-prong design allows you to hug the seams to avoid slippage, for absolute accuracy every time. 

SewingMastery Tip: Never sew over pins! It can cause pain to both you and your sewing machine.

What’s in each Sew Sampler box?

At least 5 specially chosen items which may include fabric, notions, patterns, thread and anything in between. The retail value of your items will always be more than your monthly cost!  Don’t be surprised if you receive exclusive or first-look items. Plus, as a member you will receive special discounts, exclusive deals and BONUS GOODIES!

Great Gift Idea

Treat a sewing friend, mom or mother-in-law to two or three months of a sewing subscription box. Let someone else pick out the fabric and sewing tools while you get all the credit for the idea!

Whether you are treating yourself or your best friend, a monthly subscription to anything sewing related is going to be AWESOME.
