    Never ordered from them before. I just finished a fabric spending spree, ordered from Joanns and from 2 people on here, so I think I'll quit for awhile!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    I saw that Mystery Box but I too have put myself on a fabric diet...now that I'm retired I have to be a little careful with my purchases. I have bought 5" square packages from Craftsy (Benartex Bittersweet). They are lovely. I am also taking their FREE BOM class, and really enjoying that.

    I would love to work with the 5" charms but when I calculate the price, they are actually quite expensive. I've bought layer cakes and jelly rolls which are pretty good deals based on yardage but the charms just seem too expensive. Am I overthinking this?

    Well, look at it this way: a Jelly Roll has 40 - 2.5" strips. That comes out to 100" of fabric. Divide that by 36" for a yard and you get 2.8 yards. Say the fabric is $11/yard. That computes to $30.80. Then you factor in the convenience factor of the fabrics being pre cut for you and you are getting at minimum 1 square of each fabric of a collection. Jelly rolls run from $30 to $45 in my neck of the woods. Usually the solid Jelly Rolls are a little less than $30.

    Charm packs run about $9.50 apiece. A Layer Cake is equal to 4 charm packs. Comes out to $38 for 4 individual charm packs. Layer cakes run about $40.

    I just received 4 charm packs from Craftsy, the deal was 2 charm packs with each purchase. The fabrics are great, very nice quality. I looked at the mystery box as well and came very close to pushing the purchase button, but I need to use up some of what I have before I buy more........or maybe not!

    Too bad Craftsy doesn't ship outside the US... their current deals look really enticing! Oh well, if they don't want to ship to me, I can always find someone who does want to.

    You are welcome maryellen2u....lol. Hubby asked me what I got and I told him. He laughed and said you like $70 because the last 3 purchases have been $70 something. lol I said I keep it under $100. He just smiled.

    I think it is like the Gremlins or the Tribbles on Star Trek - If you feed them after dark, it multiplies! All food is banned from my sewing room for this reason. I just don't have room for more!!

    I get their newsletter but can't buy as they don't ship international. Broke my heart last week when they had jellyrolls.

    We Canadians are left out as well. Checked out their website and they have a little something for everyone. Just not us, oh well.

    I have purchased the deals on Craftsy many times and am always pleased. Was going to buy the Mystery Box, but due to server problems couldn't get through so I saved myself $60. Every item I've purchased has been top quality fabric at a great price, you can't go wrong and their courses are terrific. They are a class act all the way.

    If you had friends in the states, you could ship the package to them (change the ship to address while checking out in Paypal), then they could mail it to you. Just a thought.

    Anxious to get it so I can see what it entails. And to share pics with ya'll!
