the-S box June 2018


It’s Box No 24 -Gosh the-S box is now 2 years old! Happy Birthday to us !!

With this super-nostalgic selection, we’re harking back to a bygone era when everyone sewed and ‘handmade’ was the order of the day. The-S box June 2018 is an eclectic, retro mix of vintage floral prints and celebrates traditional handicrafts such as crochet and cross–stitch.

This month, we’re paying homage to our love of haberdashery and dress-making. Think tea roses and soft florals with a gentle, feminine palette of dusty peaches, muted pinks and faded greens

This box includes some really lovely ‘stuff’ to personalise all kinds of projects and add a vintage flavour to any piece you’re working on. Not designed to be a kit, the-s box is always packed full of gorgeous inspiration and crafty goodies

Pick of the Month:

Our Lewes shop team selected this green floral cotton poplin fabric as their Pick of the Month, so we’ve included a full half metre. Other fabrics included are Peach satin and a ditzy Peach floral viscose.

Loved by Saira

for June is this natural-coloured band of Aida with a piqué edging from France; she was so inspired that she’s blogged a gorgeous cross stitch rose design. The template is included in the box along with 1m of the band.

June Contents include five stranded cottons, three natural crochet flowers,         five wooden haberdashery buttons, two wooden dolly pegs, pink floral ribbon,              green piqué edge ribbon, cream piqué edge ribbon, pink Chanel-style trim,        narrow haberdashery tape, vintage-style  printed ribbon and 10m of 1mm cotton cord

Total contents for the-s box JUNE 2018 are worth  at least £ 23.64. So this box is a real gift for £16.95!

Why such great value? because we love our lovely customers sew much…

Things we plan to make…

  • A vintage-style peg bag
  • Create Garden Party bunting
  • A floral sewing machine cover
