Frequently Asked Questions
About the Subscription
How much does a subscription cost?
The box costs $48 total each month. Shipping is free! You can select from a 1-, 3- or 6-month subscription. Total cost for a 3-month subscription is $144 and for a 6-month $288.
Please Note: Missouri residents will also be charged sales tax.
When does my subscription renew?
Subscriptions renew one month after your initial subscription date for single month subscriptions. Three months after your initial subscription date for three month subscriptions. And six months after your initial subscription date for six month subscriptions.
So if you subscribe on the 10th of the month, you will be billed again on the 10th of the next month for a 1-month subscription. Holidays and number of days in a month may affect this billing cycle slightly.
Please note: Single month subscribers may be billed for their second box before receiving their first box depending upon which day of the month they subscribe. If you have questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to email us!
What happens if I select the 3- or 6-month subscription?
If you choose a multi-month subscription (3 or 6 months), you will be billed for all 3 or 6 months at once. Your subscription will automatically renew every 3 or 6 months. You may cancel at anytime but if you select a multi-month subscription you will receive all of those months and your subscription will simply not renew if cancelled prior to the renewal date.
Why would I want to pick a multi-month subscription?
Multi-month subscribers get an exclusive bonus item created exclusively for The Sewciety by top fabric designers. The bonus item will ONLY be included in boxes of multi-month subscribers. You will receive one new bonus item every quarter that you are subscribed! So if you subscribe for 6 months, you will receive 2 bonus items during those 6 months.
What if I want to cancel?
You may cancel at anytime and your subscription will not be renewed. You may cancel your subscription by emailing email@example.com or by logging into your account and canceling. Please note that you will be billed for any boxes you received and your cancellation will only affect future boxes.
Do I have to subscribe? What if I want to purchase a single box each month instead?
You must have an active subscription to receive the box each month. You can sign up for a 1 month subscription which will be billed once per month at $48 and you can cancel anytime. Quantities are limited, so by having a subscription you are guaranteed to never miss out on a box.
About the Box
What’s in the box?
Each month you will receive 2 yards or more of fabric for the main apparel project, a pattern (digital or hard copy), a smaller pattern and smaller cut of fabric, and 3 or more sewing notions.
How much is the box worth?
Every box has a MSRP of over $60 plus many boxes will include exclusive items available ONLY to our subscribers.
How much do I pay?
The box sells for $48 each month. Multi-month subscriptions are billed differently, but the monthly cost remains the same. Shipping is free! Cost is different for Canadian and International subscribers but shipping is included in the price.
What kind of fabric will be in the box?
The type of fabric will vary from month to month but we can guarantee it will be high quality and fun! The fabric may be a woven or knit and could include something like a quilting weight cotton or voile. The fabric will always complement the included pattern and there will be enough of it to complete the pattern if you desire to do that.
What type of patterns will be in the box?
Each box will include an apparel pattern which can be made with 2 yards or less of fabric no matter the sizing. So if you are an XXS or XXL, you will be able to make the pattern with the amount of material included in the box. Also in the box will be a mini-pattern or scrap busting pattern. These patterns will be quick, easy projects that can be made with a minimal amount of fabric. These small patterns might be something for the home, an accessory, a stuffed animal, or anything else we can imagine!
Can I pick the fabric in my box?
We select the fabrics for the boxes each month so it will be a fun surprise for you! When you complete the short survey at registration, we will use your answers to help decide which fabric to put in your box each month. We want you to love the fabric as much as we do, and we work hard to select something that will make you do a fabric happy dance!
How much is shipping?
Shipping is free for all subscribers. There is a price difference between United States, Canada and International subscriptions but all subscriptions include shipping in the price.
Do you ship internationally?
Yes we now ship internationally! Make sure to select the correct subscription for either Canada or International depending on where you are located. We also ship to APO addresses!
How do you ship the boxes?
We ship via the United States Postal Service. You will receive a tracking number when your item is shipped.
