Mystery Boxes

Something a little new and different.  Mystery boxes include a cut of a limited edition fabric that is exclusive to that box for that calender year, e.g. any fabrics in the 2017 boxes will not be available until 2018 to anyone who didn't have the box it was originally in.

Your box will contain:

Limited Edition fabric (count and type of your choice)
A least 3 skeins of thread (a mixture of solid, and hand dyed and silk and braid, it could be anything I stock)
An embellishment of some type (button, charm, beads etc)

Examples of past boxes can be found HERE

All themed to the same theme.  As an example if the theme was Autumn, you might expect things in autumnal shades including; golds, oranges and browns.

This is a great way to try out different things and build up stash for stitching those small designs you can have fun changing the recommended threads for.

These boxes have a fixed order cut off date so that I can make sure I order the right amount of thread.

The 2017 boxes will follow a Flower theme.  There will be other special themed ones during the year as well.  You can dip in and out as you like.  I'm using the Birth Month Flowers list from a website called babies online, this will just give you an idea of the colours - please be aware that flowers of the same variety some in many hues.  If there is more than one given in the classification I'm using e.g. March I'll pick one of them as the theme.
