Of course, I am mad keen on storage solutions (I don't have a sewing room so the need to keep my space neat and organized is a priority) and I could not resist a full set of exclusive Fat Quarter Shop tins for my sewing notions. These smalls spools of Aurifil thread fit perfectly in the tin and the tins have become a handy and portable solution for some of my English Paper Piecing and general quilting notions.

  1. Thanks for posting this. I love Fat Quarter Shop and for some reason I thought these subscriptions were much more expensive. It looks like a really good value.

  2. looks like another fun sampler box - I love those tins ! I just quietly freaked out about you not having a sewing room!! where do you sew and where do you store all of those gorgeous fabrics and scraps ?

  3. I love my Sew Sampler Boxes. You solved my problem of how to store my rotary cutter safely in my little tote which I carry up/down the stairs. I'm always afraid the blade will slip. Thanks for the photos!

  4. These are so pretty, thanks for telling us about them.
