I have been given a 3 month subscription to Quilty and purchased Sew Sampler. My issue is when they give you the value they always include $10 for the pattern they send which isn’t one I would ever purchase. They also value the fabric and tools at very high retail cost. I loved getting a treat in the mail but I didn’t get enough value for my money.

I have checked the price of items in my Sew Sampler box at three different quilt shops. If not on sale the price is the same in each shop. I don't get the boxes to save money on quilting items though.

The Connecting Threads box hasn't arrived yet. Apparently not using priority mail. This is a big mark against them for me. The box has to great to make up for that. To renew for the next month is only two days away and if the box hasn't arrived before the deadline to get another one then that is awful customer service and I won't be renewing no matter how great it is. For quilting things I can get anywhere, one chance is all any shop gets to get my money.

Right. Not many understand that isn't the point of the boxes.

you didn't get tracking with a shipping notice? A few weeks ago I had a priority box held in Nevada for 8 days, just sitting there, between North Carolina and Washington. Not something to blame the vendor for.

Some companies are using "Smart Post". The package is transported by Fed Ex ... apparently in a very, very, very leisurely fashion ... to your local post office, and then the post office delivers it along with the regular mail. It's not unusual for "Smart Post" packages to take 2 weeks to get to me. Ugh. Maybe it should be called "Snail Post"!

I think (but am not 100% sure) that CT has shipped packages to me via "Smart Post" in the past, but it's been awhile since I ordered from them and I can't remember for sure.

Have they sent a tracking number?

I didn't get a tracking number or carrier info, only confirmation it was sent.

I haven't received my box either and no tracking number. Not good customer service to have to renew before I get the first box to see if I like it or not. If not here tomorrow then I'm not renewing. That is the deadline to renew.

I called CS and was given a tracking number. She said it is on the order but I had to go to my account, look up the order invoice with transaction number to get the tracking info. My box was mailed June 3 and will not be delivered until June 11. That means I'd have to renew before seeing the first box. No thanks. I cancelled to not receive anymore boxes.

I got the box today. The box contained:

10 spool set of Essential Cotton Thread, Bejeweled.
15 very pretty fat quarters from the Color Wheel Solids collection (the deep colors set)
1 pack of 5 rotary blades
1 quilt pattern, Move Star by Villa Rosa Designs
I like the box it came in too. Good storage box.


The items in the box can be bought on sale for over $60 not counting the pattern, so the value is there and even more so when the sale ends. I just don't need basic stash products. I want to try the new things.
