If you don't already know, the idea is delightfully simple: each month you can sign up to receive a themed package of fabrics and haberdashery items handpicked by Hayley herself. What you end up making with your goodies probably depends on what size package you go for, as fabric lengths vary.
There are three options to choose from, which you can set up a regular subscription to or just order when you feel like treating yourself.
£20 Mini Box: 1m of fabric, 3 fat quarters and a selection of haberdashery items
£35 Medium Box: 2.5m of dressmaking fabric, 4 fat quarters and a selection of haberdashery items
£65 Luxury Box: 3.5m of luxury dressmaking fabric, 5 fat quarters, an indie sewing pattern
What you can see pictured is October's medium box, kindly sent to me by Hayley to review. It was super exciting to receive it in the post and a real pleasure to unwrap its beautifully packaged contents!
This month's Autumn Bliss theme was nailed by Hayley with a wonderfully warm colour palette. As a dressmaker rather than a crafter, I was most excited by the 2.5m of fabric, which is a moody floral cotton blend with a medium weight and nice drape.
This concept is ideal for the adventurous stitchers among you. The boxes are fun to receive, look lovely and are filled with nice quality products. It would also make a very thoughtful Christmas, Birthday or Valentine's Day gift for a special someone...or for yourself of course!
Adding to the sense of excitement is one of my favourite features of Sew Hayley Jane's website...the rather helpful countdown clock!
Personally though, I don't think I would subscribe to monthly boxes, as I'm not daring enough with my cash. If I'm spending money on sewing supplies, I need to know I'm going to definitely like and use them, as I'm quite particular in my fabric and sewing pattern taste.
One thing that would maybe sway me is if boxes were differentiated between dressmaking and crafting. As lovely as fat quarters are for example, I don't have much use for them, so I'd rather have more dressmaking fabric or an indie sewing pattern instead.
However, if you have a sense of adventure, then I think Sew Hayley Jane's fun offering is perfect for you!
