Little Box of Figs 2016

Our first year of LITTLE BOX OF FIGS has come to a close and we are so proud of the kits and patterns we have created for this program as well as all our favorite notions and little goodies that we had the chance to include in each box. So here is a quick summary of the 2016 program...

For those of you who signed up for the 2017 program... you don't have too long to wait for your first box!! We are starting to fold and organize as we speak. The first box for 2017 will go out in late March/early April [due to some early Coney Island fabric arrival!].

We do have a wait list already but have gone through a few names due to some cancellations due to critical health issues. It never hurts to add yourself to the list if you are interested... you never know! Email me if interested.

Thanks for playing along on our maiden LITTLE BOX OF FIGS voyage to all of you 2016 folks!

LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: BOX 2

So hopefully by now most of you have received and are already enjoying our LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: The Fall Edition. Thank you to all of you how have let us know how much you are loving the "ingredients" of this second box! We are so very glad!

I know that many of you missed out on this annual subscription and are wondering if you have any chance of jumping in on the fun.

ORDERING UPDATES

So here is the scoop…. we do not have any more official spots for this year [although every once in a while we do have an opening due to illness or emergency and we then contact the next person on the wait list from March]. Since there is a fabric based project in each of our boxes, we are limited by the amount of fabric that we have pre-ordered for each box. We already doubled the original amount of subscriptions we were planning on doing when on the first day of ordering [back in March] it became clear how popular this program was going to be. Unfortunately we just can't add any more spots due to space, time, employee limitations! But we are so very grateful for your support and enthusiasm!!

Toward the end of summer, we will be offering sign ups for the 2017 subscription. Although we originally said that this year's participants would get first priority for next year's sign ups, due to the popularity of the box we have decided to open up the sign ups to everyone. We will let everyone know via our blog, IG and our newsletter, what day the 2017 subscription will go "live" so that everyone has an equal chance.

THE FALL EDITION

For those of you who are dieing to get your hands on this quarter's FALL BOX, we have made up a few kits of the MINI HUGS quilt featured in the box and here in this blog post. HERE is the link for that. If we sell out crazy fast, we will see if we can make up more with the fabric leftovers that we have left after all the boxes were completed.

Popsicles

So here's the scoop.... ha, ha... that's ice cream humor!

Usually we don't release our brand new patterns until a bit closer to Market but this time might just be a special circumstance....

Popsicleschairs

We released our first LITTLE BOXES OF FIGS subscription box last week and most of you who are in the program will have received yours by now. I do want to share that at least one of your boxes decided to take the scenic route courtesy of the US Postal Service. We had a New York customer whose box ended up in Guam first, then Honolulu Hawaii and then finally back to the mainland and on its way to NY. Wouldn't you like to have been on that little boxes travel plan LOL?

We featured a special project in there that we are super excited about. Something that just screams summer! From the emails and comments we have received, it looks like those of you who didn't make it into the subscription program would also like a chance to make this little lovely.

So here she is.... MINI POPSICLES!

[that does beg the question if there is a non-mini version coming as well? All I can say on that one is to stay tuned for just a bit longer].

We think she is just a little bit perfect. What do you think?

Also in the box was a fun summer towel project, called Summer... I know, I know, not the most creative name ever. But it was just right for this.

LITTLE BOX OF FIGS QUARTERLY SUBSCRIPTION

EDIT 1: THE FIRST RUN OF BOXES HAS SOLD OUT.

EDIT 2: WE HAVE WORKED THROUGH THE ENTIRE WAIT LIST AND THE SECOND RUN HAS SOLD OUT. WE ARE NO LONGER ACCEPTING WAIT LIST SPOTS AS WE ARE NOT ABLE TO ADD MORE SPACES.

Thanks so much for your support of our business! No matter how hard we try we cannot seem to keep up with you guys.

 

So…. we have had this in the works for a while but given the amount of moving parts in this little project, it took us a few extra months than expected to pull it all together.

INTRODUCING…

BoxGraphicFinal

A few months ago, my cousin [who is not a quilter or even a sewer but who supports me and my business wholeheartedly] came to me and said "Joanna, we think you should do one of those subscription boxes like we get for makeup in our family! It should come in a cute little green box and it should have little projects in it and it should be seasonal"….. and then she went on and on and on… because she is a super energetic marketing person with lots of great idea who definitely has the gift of gab. Thanks sweetie!!  I think she had me at "cute green box"! 

I hope you agree with Melonie that It was a great idea and that you jump on board with us as we take off for our first yearly subscription!

Different from any of our BOM programs or yearly kits, these projects will be small, seasonal and four times a year! Here is the scoop… or at least all of the scoop that we can share.

 

LITTLE BOX OF FIGS: A QUARTERLY SUBSCRIPTION BOX

 

Boxes



We are so excited to share this new program with you. Join us for this beautiful little 6" x 6" box of seasonal Fig Tree goodness, once a quarter for one year...one for each season! Register with us now to secure your spot and every three months you will be sent an exclusive Fig Tree box with a seasonal fabric kit, a seasonal "goodie" kit, a favorite Fig Tree notion as well as a few other goodies that will be added each month. Each fabric kit will be exclusive and newly released especially for this box. The boxes will ship in April [summer box], July [autumn box], October [winter/Christmas box] and January [Spring box]. 

This year's subscription will begin next month in April 2016. Sign ups for the box are now!

The contents of each box are a secret and a mystery until the day that they ship out each quarter but this is what we can tell you:

1- Each quarter the fabric kit will be seasonal. April's box will be summer themed. July's box will be autumn themed. October's box will be winter or Christmas themed. January's box will be Spring themed. A box might looks something like this: a kit for a wall hanging or a table runner for the "fabric kit" A small kit for a pincushion or a flour sack towel or a softie or a small pillow, etc., for the "goodie" kit. One of our favorite notions or something that would be especially useful to complete one of the kits in that box. A few other special items.

2- Each quarterly box will range between $35-$55, depending on that month's kit and the notions and goodies added that quarter. The value of your kit will ALWAYS BE MORE THAN YOUR COST. Shipping will always be standard USPS medium size box.

3- You will sign up for the entire year at once. All you have to do is register and be charged the $4.00 registration fee now. Each quarter when your box ships, the card that you used to register will be charged the fee for that quarter.

4- We do not know yet if we will continue the program next year or if it will be a one year program only. If we continue it, the projects next year will be different. You will not be required to stay in the program next year but this year's participants will be given priority for next year before the spots are opened up to others on the wait list.

5- Spots will be limited as always. We are so very sorry that we are just not able to do our clubs on an "unlimited" basis. We hope to have enough of these available to meet a large demand though!

6-The box itself is a beautiful little "Fig Tree green" box with a lovely sticker.... if all goes according to plan, the sticker will be different each season!

7- If you follow us on our blog, our newsletter and primarily on IG... we will be sharing hints about what is coming in each box!

Please go HERE to sign up and to read THE FINE PRINT. Please read THE FINE PRINT for all the little details that you will need to know!

Welcome to our latest adventure!! The first kit project is being secretly quilted by Diana as we speak and absolutely can't wait to share it with you. Oh my goodness its really cute. Hint: It involves a favorite summer snack. That's all I can say :-)...

Happy Sewing,

Joanna
