Have you heard about Stash Builder Box? It is a wonderful new monthly subscription that includes fabric, notions, patterns, AND they are donating 20% of the proceeds from every box sale toward making a quilt for a child in need.
When Amanda Kelly from Stash Builder Box contacted me and gave me the overview about her vision, the motto #TheBoxWithACause really resonated with me. In fact, I am really excited about all they ways they offer for us to Get Involved. In particular, I want to highlight something that I will definitely be contributing to in the near future:
We are always accepting donations of … orphan quilt blocks, batting, thread and/or fabric. We accept fabric donations bigger than a Fat Eighth (9″x21″).
So it really was not a hard decision for me to accept a sneak peak of a Stash Builder Box from Amanda in return for letting people know about the awesome product that she has put together.
When I received the box on Thursday evening, I was excited to open it and find out what was inside. The contents were put together very nicely and I love how it is color coordinated.
The first item I opened was the black tissue paper, which included the 6 Fat Eighths and 2 free pattern booklets.
I am excited to be teaming up with Stash Builder Box to share a pattern in the August box, and I am definitely looking forward to sharing more about the pattern with you later this summer!
I really appreciate that 2 of the fabrics included in the bundle are coordinating solids. Swoon! But I immediately wondered, what is this fabric? As Fat Eighths, I knew I would be have to be very lucky to get a selvage edge, and none of the prints had a selvage. Hmmm…
Handy insert to the rescue! It turns out that Amanda already thought of that question and has a What’s Inside page ready with information for each month’s box.

The drawstring bag contained a lot of great notions (and again, check out those color coordinated pins!). The “Stitcher Gonna Stitch” pencil is on point (hee hee), and I can never have too many seam rippers!
I think a Stash Builder Box would be perfect for almost anyone, and it could made a pretty amazing gift. I hope you will take some time to check them out, and be sure to use the code SBBFIRSTBOX to get $3 off your first month!
