Stash Builder Box: A Subscription with a Good Cause

Hi wonderful fabric collectors!

I don’t know about you, but I love receiving packages! Even if I know what I purchased, there’s something so exciting about coming home from the AGF HQ and seeing a box waiting for me at the door. For all of you fabric lovers out there, imagine receiving happy mail with not just fabrics but also fun sewing related products! I know it sounds like a dream!

This dream can come true with the Stash Builder Box, a subscription service where every month you receive a box with a few specially curated fabric prints, notions, and other sewing related goodies. The best part of this new service is that 20% of all the proceeds from every single box sale goes towards making quilts for kids in need.  What can be better than replenishing your stash for a great cause?

Plus, you choose the fabrics you’ll receive! Every month, Stash Builder Box hosts a voting session on their Instagram where you get to choose two of the main prints that will be in your box. So this means, you get to choose your favorite fabrics, get cool stuff in the mail, and help children in need!

And guess what? The July box is dedicated to Boardwalk Delight by Dana Willard!

P.S. Here’s a little insight from the founder, Amanda Kelly on how Stash Builder Box was born:

“Stash Builder Box is a monthly quilting box that came to be in January of 2016 after I was doing research for my husband about starting a subscription box for his company. After doing the research for my husband’s box, his idea didn’t end up working out but it got the wheels turning for me. I really had a desire to combine my love of quilting with my heart to serve and help others. I had this crazy idea to make a box of quilting goodies but also have an underlying cause to bless people”.

When designing the quilt for the collection we always try to make one that will represent the essence of said collection. With Maker, we somehow wanted to include the mistakes that we come across with some of the projects we create. "Make Mistakes" is a reminder that a little error along the way of making is also a lesson for a future project. Feel free to share "Make Mistakes" with all your MAKER friends.
