What Sewists are Saying
It is such a treat to open the box and find absolutely everything needed to complete a beautiful project. I invest a lot of time planning my pattern and fabric selections but can lose momentum when I don't have the rest of the supplies such as a matching zipper, thread, etc. Needle Sharp's box helps me get started right away and even includes a sweet treat to help me push through the pattern cutting stage! I couldn't be happier with my experience."

The FAQ below will help you understand the nitty-gritty of our subscriptions so you can make the most of your monthly box.
How does it work?+—
Each month, we plan 4 different subscription boxes. Each includes a carefully selected pattern based on the theme for the month. Once you choose a box, you select one of three high-quality fabrics. Then we take it from there. Pick the red crepe? You get a red zipper, red thread, and all the necessary notions to complete the pattern. Easy-peasy!
Can I change my subscription from month to month?+—
You sure can! Our subscriptions don’t lock you into one box for all eternity—this isn’t a gym membership! We know that from month to month, different boxes might appeal to you more than the one you're currently subscribed to. Maybe you started out with the Sew Essential Box, but are ready to try something more challenging. Maybe you made a one-of-a-kind piece from the Sew Indulgent Box, and you're looking for a simple sewing palate cleanser. Each month, we encourage you to choose any box you want.
When are the new boxes announced?+—
Boxes are announced on the 15th of each month and are available for 30 days. If you subscribe to our newsletter, you will be one of the first to be in the know.
What’s the difference between New and Tried & True boxes?+—
Four “New Boxes” are released each month featuring new patterns and styles for your enjoyment. Additionally, we also list four classics, which we refer to as our “Tried & True” boxes. These are revived from the Needle Sharp archives, kind of like our Greatest Hits to inspire creativity and give you even more to choose from each month.
Can I get more than one box?+—
You bet! If one simply isn’t enough to keep you busy, you can add as many subscriptions as you like to your account.
Can I add muslin (or more fabric, or notions, or whatever) to my box?+—
You certainly can. If making a first draft to get just the right fit with a new pattern makes you happy, you can add muslin to any subscription in the Manage my Subscription portal. You can also always add additional patterns, fabric, or notions to your box each month in the portal.
Can I skip a month?+—
Of course! We would never presume we will always pick a pattern or fabric you love (though damned if we’re not going to try). If you’d like to skip a month you can indicate that choice from the Manage My Subscription portal. Once you make that selection, you will not receive a box for that month and your credit card will not be charged. Please note that the skip option only applies one month at a time. If you want to stop being charged automatically for good, you need to choose to cancel your subscription.
How do I choose my fabric?+—
The first time you purchase a subscription, you pick your fabric at the time of purchase. Every month thereafter, your fabric selection must be chosen in the Manage My Subscription portal by the 14th of the month before the box is locked on the 15th. If you do not select your fabric choice before the lock date, you will receive the first fabric listed for the box on the product page. We understand that everyone has busy lives, so if you panic, realizing you want something other than the default, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will do our best to accommodate you.
What if I need/want more fabric?+—
Each box comes with enough fabric to make the largest size the pattern calls for. For patterned fabrics, we give you (at least) an extra 6” to account for matching plaids, stripes, and florals. If you find that you've made a mistake, cut the wrong size or, eek!, had a laundry disaster, we usually (though not always) have fabric left over that can be purchased by the yard. All you have to do is email us at email@example.com. If you are outside the pattern sizes and are planning to grade your pattern upwards, simply email us at firstname.lastname@example.org by the 15th of the month so we can provide you with more continuous yardage for a small extra fee.
How will I be billed?+—
You will be charged for your first box at the time of purchase. Subsequent boxes will be charged on the first of each month. When your box is shipped, you will receive a tracking number so that you can impatiently watch its progress as it travels through the postal system.
What about prepaid subscriptions?+—
Buy more than one month at a time and save! If you’re ready to set yourself up for months of fun sewing projects at a time, we’ll give you a nice discount. Prepaid subscriptions must be paid in full at the time of purchase and you can choose to renew, cancel, or switch to month to month after your chosen interval.
3-month subscription - save 10%
6-month subscription - save 15%
12-month subscription - save a whopping 20%
Can I give a subscription as a gift?+—
Absolutely! Simply check the box when placing your order and we will be sure your gift is delivered in style.
I forgot to modify my subscription before the cutoff. What do I do?+—
If you do not select a different box before the lock date, you will receive the box you received the previous month with the default fabric selections for that box. We understand that everyone has busy lives, so don’t panic! Just email us at email@example.com if you’d like to make changes and we’ll do our best to accommodate you.
What is the return policy?+—
Subscription boxes can be returned within 7 days of receipt for a full refund. Boxes can only be returned if the fabric is unwashed and uncut and if the notions are unopened. Email firstname.lastname@example.org for details on how and where to return your box.
Can I make a special request?+—
Certainly! We are always willing to do what we can to help create your next favorite piece of clothing. Want white buttons instead or black? A contrast zipper instead of a coordinating one? Feel free to ask. Although, try as we might, we cannot accommodate every request, but you can count on us to do our best to satisfy your needs. We also always appreciate suggestions for new themes, patterns, and fabrics. Our store is always evolving and we would love to hear your creative ideas! Email us at: email@example.com
What is your cancellation policy?+—
There is no penalty for cancelling at any time. You can subscribe for one month or 12, or even 100, and cancel or reactivate whenever you like.
How do I recycle my packaging?+—
All of our packaging is recyclable and/or reusable. The box, paper bags, and tissue paper can be recycled with mixed paper. The plastic bags for the notions can either be repurposed or recycled with plastic bags (#4). You can find a recycling location in your area by checking out this link to the very useful site: Earth 911
