    Craftsy Deals - Mystery Box

    Anyone bought a mystery box from Craftsy before? It states it is a Fat Quarter bundle and Designer Charm Packs (not sure how many packs). It also says it is a $120 value. Today they are half off. Would be a great stash builder if they were good quality. Just wanted to ask if anyone has gotten one before and if they are worth it but I buy one. Thanks!

    Sounds like a good deal if the fabric is useable.

    I have not heard of Craftsy before. What fabrics do they sell. If they sell only LQS quality I would assume the mystery box would contain the same. Maybe you could email them and ask?
    I don't want to brag but I can still fit into the earrings I wore in high school.

    They have daily deals that I get via email each day. Most of the time it is about 30% normal prices, all name brand fabric and all pre-cuts. So I guess the mystery box would be a good purchase, just wish I knew how many charm packs and how many FQ in the bundle, is the bundle 8 or less or more.

    I saw that too. I almost pushed the purchase button but I restrained! I have put myself on a fabric diet. I just spent the past week cleaning and organizing my quilting/sewing room. I wound up giving 2 big bags of fabric to Goodwill and sent a 16 lb. box off to a friend who makes charity quilts. I definately don't need anything right now. But please do share what you get in the mystery box. I would love to drool over your great deal!

    This is why I'm on a fabric diet! These are the fabrics that I was able to fit into my actual quilting room. Everything on the shelves is 1 yard minimum but less than 3 yds. The fabrics on the bottom shelves of the all three units is 3 yds to 7 yds or more. The plastic drawers are full of FQ's and 1/2 yd cuts. I still have 3 large plastic tubs in the guest bedroom . . .

    It appears their site is down for maintenance, but here is the link: www.craftsy.com.

    They have alot of online classes and daily deals. They are not just quilting but also knitting and I think other crafts as well.

    These are bookcases that I purchased at Target. The shelves are adjustable. I need about 3 or 4 more of them (and the room to put them in!!!)

    I like the white furry fabric on the shelf in your avatar photo. Maybe the kitty is trying to pass as minkie fabric.

    Well, when you want to go off your fabric diet, you just let me know and I'll try to take some of that stash off your hands lol. To those who ordered the mystery box, please let us know about it when you get it; I was tempted to order it too, but did not.

    That's Lily Pie and when she is asleep is the only time she is good when in my sewing room. She's always into something!
