DUE TO LONG DELAYS FOR ARRIVAL OF THE CONTENTS FOR THE MYSTERY BOXES, THEY ARE TEMPORARILY ON HOLD. THEY WILL RETURN AS SOON AS SUPPLIES START BEING DELIVERED TO ME MORE QUICKLY.
Something a little new and different. Mystery boxes include a cut of a limited edition fabric that is exclusive to that box for that calendar year, e.g. any fabrics in the 2019 boxes will not be available until 2020 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 box contents match the same theme. As an example this years boxes are minerals and gemstones so for January the box theme is Garnet, I might take inspiration from any of the various varieties of garnet there are. Garnet is a silicate mineral, and it's chemical composition affects the colour. For January all I can tell you is that the fabric won't be themed on Rhodolite.
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 2019 theme is Minerals and Gemstones
September: Varieties of Quartz
The cut off date for ordering each box is the 12th of the month it is for (e.g. Februarys box order cut off date is 12th February). They ship at the very end of that month, beginning on the next depending on when the contents arrive.
Note the cat is not representative contents!
