If you’re new to the hobby of sewing, going shopping for everything you need for a project can be overwhelming.
Flashback to my own first trip to a real fabric store and I was a literal deer in headlights. I was totally overwhelmed by all the colors, different fabrics and had no clue where to start, what was good, what I needed to pass on, and so on. 2 hours later when I sort of made some choices (hesitatingly), I had a migraine and felt very unsure about life in general regarding my new hobby.
A monthly sewing box like the ones I’m going to share here are a great gift for anyone who loves to sew.
Bonus: sewing subscription boxes take the headache out of sourcing all the things you need for a project by putting into one box and shipping it off to you. Who doesn’t love happy mail?!
I got my own chance to try out a sewing subscription box from Indie Stitch recently, and there’s a video below talking more about that too.
Whether you’re a quilter, a beginner seamstress, or a garment sewist supreme, there’s something for everyone here. Let’s explore some different sewing subscription boxes and monthly sewing clubs you can try out.

This is not so much a subscription box, but it is a membership to get embroidery patterns for a whole year. Kiriki Press makes some of the most adorable embroidery patterns out there, and if you love to do embellishing in your sewing, this is worth looking into.
SoulCollections' Sewing subscription boxes for kids are aimed at teaching kids the basics of sewing through fun projects like stuffies, felt projects, small accessories and more. Projects can be made by hand sewing or machine and include notions, tools and fabrics (which may be precut or not).
These are joyful projects any kid would love to make. This would be a great thing to invest in for homeschooling families or for grandparents wanting to pass on the love of sewing.
