Stash Builder Box

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.

Stash Builder Box: 6 Fat Eighths and 2 Patterns

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!

  1. This looks like a fun box to open….little surprises are the best! It’s really nice that two patterns are included. I can’t wait to see what you make. 🙂

    Thanks for sharing. I had not heard of this particular box subscription before and I’m with you I definitely love the fact that a portion of the money goes to a great cause.

  3. A great cause for sure! I’m sure it was thrilling to open the box and see all the surprises! Thanks for sharing and I will check it out!

  4. Good Morning Yvonne! This is a superb product and I will have to go and check out the site. Thank You for sharing! Have a fantastic creative day!

  5. Lara B. says:

    It looks like a whole box of fun surprises Yvonne and all the better that part of the purchase goes toward helping children (and therefor families too) in such dire circumstances!

  6. Cute box and an even greater cause. It’s funny, the Royal Squares quilt pattern is the first one I ever made!

  7. Daisy says:

    I like this take on the subscription service. Including a cause is definitely a nice way to go, and I’m excited to look into their program to put fabric and orphan blocks to good use! I’ve decided to embrace my tendency towards orphan blocks – sometimes ideas just don’t turn out like I want them to, and they can be very useful when people are putting together charity quilts!

    This is such a wonderful idea. Thank you for sharing this info. I showed my husband and forwarded him the info since Mother’s Day is fast approaching. What is better than a box of surprises that benefits a great cause.

  9. Sally says:

    What a great idea and looks like they’ve put it together beautifully too.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
