The end of April is almost upon us, which means we have a bunch of deadlines approaching:
Our May/June 2016 StitchyBox shipment is our second Summer-themed shipment, with a color palette based on The Little Sunbather. We have a limited number of spots left in each of our nine subscription options, so head over to the shop and pick out which fabric option works best for you!
Just the threads is our personalized thread & embellishment subscription service. Sign up by April 30th and you'll start your subscription with our May 2016 shipment, with a color palette inspired by Summer Flowers, a Design Seeds color palette.

Lastly, a Request
I've received a few messages from stitchers who missed out on our first two DMC Coloris special order windows, asking if we'll be having a third one. If there is enough interest, I'd be happy to open it up to a third round of orders. So, a request - if you missed our first two rounds of DMC Colori ordering, or perhaps want to order some additional skeins, I'd love to hear from you, either in a comment below or via email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Until next time, Happy Stitching!

Last week, we announced our new chart series collaboration with Northern Expressions Needlework, Mini Twists, and the response has been a bit overwhelming - thank you to everyone who has already subscribed! Nicole and I are so happy that so many of you are excited about this series, but we have also seen some questions come up repeatedly, so for today's post I thought I'd collect them all in one place. Warning: today's post is going to be a bit long :)
Where can I purchase the charts?
The charts are exclusive to StitchyBox, and will be available in our store as they are released in both PDF and print format. A subscription option is available for those who know they will want each chart (and want to save 10% on each release!).
Do I have to subscribe to the chart series to receive the charts?
No, the subscription is completely optional. If you'd prefer to see each chart before you decide to order it, you'll find each chart in our store as they are released.
Do I have to subscribe to StitchyBox shipments to use these charts?
No, while I will be creating some of our models using StitchyBox shipment supplies, the charts do not require you to have StitchyBox supplies in order to stitch them.
I don't subscribe to StitchyBox, but I would like to use the materials you used to stitch my project - how do I find them?
Due to popular demand, we will be creating supply packs that correspond to each model we display, available in the supply shop along with the charts. Some of the threads I will be using in some of the models are from small-independent dyers, and in those cases I will give you all the information you need to order directly from the dyer. We will have the fabric and beads for these models available in the shop.
I tried to subscribe to the chart series, but at check-out I see a zero charge - is something wrong?
The subscription registration for the series is set at a zero charge, because it is just the registration - we will send you an invoice for each chart as it is released.
The deadline to subscribe and receive a 10% discount on the first chart in our series is tomorrow, February 2nd. After February 2nd, subscriptions will begin with the second chart, and you will need to purchase the first chart at full price.
f you have a question about the Mini Twist series I haven't answered here, please leave it as a comment below!
Wishing you plenty of stitching time and never-knotting floss in 2016!
