    Connecting Threads Stash Up subscription Club

    https://www.connectingthreads.com/stashupclub

    I saw this in their catalog today. Anyone signed up for this? I did for one month to see what is in the box. I like CT's fabrics and notions. Should be a fun.
    I believe giving what I can will never cause me to be in need.

    I signed up too. I think this is the first month of it. It seems to be a new thing. And free shipping. I'm looking forward to see what is in the box. Sew Sampler box has gotten better and better. Quilty box has been too blah lately, I stopped getting that one.

    I saw that in their catalog too. I can't afford to sign up this month, but please share what you get! Their fabrics are really nice and I like their threads. Should be a good box!

    I buy my fabric when it's on sale, or wholesale when I can. The only drawback of this offer is that the boxes are a $65 value for $49. And that's $65 retail... so not enough discount for me.

    It would be fun to get something in the mail, tho... but I guess it should be something I have chosen myself. Will just keep shopping sales online.

    I get the Sew Sampler and have been really happy with it. It's fun to get a box of goodies each month.

    I called CS and was told free shipping for all boxes in the US. If I renew and charged shipping for future boxes I will cancel because it's not up front about that on the sign up page.

    It would be fun to get a surprise in the mail each month, but I really don't need any more fabric or gadgets. Let us know what you think when you get your box.

    I got confirmation my box has shipped. I'll post pictures of the contents when it arrives. Crossing my fingers it's something I will love. LOL

    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.

    Sounds like a fairly decent surprise box, Onebyone. Maybe in a few months I'll sign up. Heavens knows I can always use FQs and thread!
