Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure
Notification

StitchyBox is a bi-monthly subscription box for counted thread embroiderers and cross-stitchers. There are two options, the Big Picture Box and the Detail-Oriented Box. With both styles, you’ll receive a variety of threads from staples like DMC to specialty threads you may not have met yet. Boxes may also include embellishments, stitching accessories and other goodies, with a total value of about $35 per box.

StitchyBox Stash Box Subscription has announced some important subscription updates!

Here are the changes happening with StitchyBox:

  • Stash Box is not closing, but will no longer take new subscriptions.
  • Current subscribers can extend their subscription until the end of 2020 (since most prepaid customers are paid until the end of 2020).
  • Stitch-it-Up add-on will be closing after the July/August 2018 box.

I renewed my subscription shortly before they announced these changes, so we’ll have more reviews, but not through the end of 2020. It all seems a little odd but I think their countdown boxes must be better performers for them.

The information card gives a bit of detail about each item, plus info about the supply shop (you can buy more of what you love, but usually only for a limited time – supplies are sometimes hand-dyed just for this box).

There are two paper envelopes containing the items, secured with a sticker, plus the bagged fabric.

All the goodies this month!

Fabric: Old Mill Java Aida Evenweave Linen ($20.50) The linen is hand dyed and a beautiful even color suitable for loads of different types of products.

This fabric is perfect for stitching a sampler!

Threads:

  • The Sea House Of Embroidery Raw Silk – It’s made from hand-dyed silk threads in raw form. It has a beautiful lustre!
  • Seaweed Forest GAST Cotton – This limited edition thread has a deep green color. I can use it for borders or for adding depth to my cross-stitch projects.
  • Old Rose Northern Lights/NPI Silk ($6) – It’s an old rose silk thread that looks perfect for those antique style embroideries. I am happy that I got one in this box because now I can add some delicate colors to my craft projects.
  • Au Ver A Soie Silk Floss – I also got this lavender colored silk floss from one of the leading brands in France. I love the color as it has an Old World charm to it. Au Ver ASoie is known for producing high-quality threads from silkworms which means that you are going to get the finest threads out there. I am happy that I got one for myself!
  • Londonberry Linen Thread – This ash-gray thread is made from pure linen. It has a rustic vibe and it comes with a natural finish too. I can use it for cross-stitch or even with other embroidery projects too.

Embellishments & Finishing:

  • Crab Charm – The cute crab charm is in silver. It can be added to bracelets, or even in your tote projects if you like.
  • Shell Focal – The shell focal is a weighted charm. It’s a decorative accessory for your bags, or for embellishing your craft projects. I love the design as it has a gold dip. I am sure that it’s going to stand out when used.
  • Starfish Charm – Another sea themed embellishment is this starfish charm. It looks great with the crab charm!
  • Collection Bottle Drop – This collection bottle drop is a unique design to use for your craft projects because you can actually put a lot of things inside it. It has a cork cover which you can remove to slip some stuff inside.
  • Tiger Shells (bead-drilled) – I got 9 tiger shells! They’re drilled so we’ll be able to insert a thread inside it too.

Stitchy Box made me happy this month because I got some colored threads to work with and new embellishments that go well together. Whether you’re a cross-stitcher, embroidering enthusiast, or someone who is an all around crafter, this subscription offers a nice bi-monthly dose of threads and other materials you can actually use! This box was delayed but they had good communication about it.

What do you think of this month’s box?
