Real Customer Talk
My box - well, tube - arrived today!! I'm so happy! Unwrapping it felt like Christmas. The fabrics are so beautiful and I can't wait to use them! ... I got the exact two fabrics I liked best, which is the sort of coincidence I can get behind. I'm pleased I got the tube, too, since it's really pretty. I'm so looking forward to next month's box, and I'll obviously be posting when I've made something out of the Ghanian fabrics!!
I collected mine today. I love the vibrant fabrics, the Tshirt pattern and beautiful tube it came in. Thank you.
Waaaaaaahh I'm so happy my box did arrive!!! Loving my fabrics and the fabric swatch is absolutely gorgeous!!! This box is even better than expected and everything has been put together with great care and love in even the smallest detail! Sewing pattern, threads that match my fabrics, a pencil, a fabric swatch , a personal note, card #1 for my card deck collection and my sewing club button!!
So I received all of these beauties today. Never sewn with African wax fabric so a first for me. Looking forward to trying this t-shirt pattern too!
(That orange and black fabric though!)
Ok so as many others I am not sure that I would have picked the colours but thats what is great about the box. You get to use colours that you would normally avoid and it stretches your mind and imagination. The more I look at them the more I love them
Love my tube!!!!! Would’ve liked a batik fabric but love what I did get! I tried not to watch the unboxing or look at pictures before hand as I think half the fun is in a surprise. Not sure what I’m going to make yet
I got my box today, yayyy!! I have been seeing the very pretty tubes and was hoping I would get one of those too but the box is pretty too. I would also have liked to have received some particular prints too, like some people have mentioned. However, I signed up to this with a clear understanding that the nature of the subscription is that we get different things every month. I was mentally prepared to like some and not like some, which is just down to personal preferences. I am quite happy with the materials I received this month, although I would personally have chosen other colours, given a choice. (I am secretly envious of some of your fabrics to be honest.😁) I think Jacqueline has put a lot of thought and time into the boxes and I really appreciate all the little personal touches. (I love the free pattern, thanks babe!) I am looking forward to next month's surprise box/tube already!
Love my box! Creative brain in overdrive!
Absolutely delighted with my first wax and prints box. Thank you Jacqueline for brightening my day! Looking forward to trying the woven t-shirt pattern in the blue and yellow. Plenty of fabric to play with!
Just received my box. LOVE IT!!!! The Kente is beautiful. Already looking forward to the next one
WOW WOW WOW! Just received my box (or should I say Tube!). The fabrics are great and the pattern is too (as a novice sewer I would have liked instructions, but I'm sure I can figure it out lol) Love it all and cant wait to get sewing. Looking forward to next months already!
Just look at this gorgeous batik in my box. What to make? Think I’ll just hug it for a while!
Jacqueline well done on your first boxes/tubes! I see it's a mixed reaction but you are handling everything so professionally because your customer service skills are brilliant...Your business ethos is excellent and I pray God will bless and multiply every single pound and give you double what you give to our people
I would second the excellent customer service, you have gone above and beyond. Thank you.
How gorgeous is this - a lovely lovely surprise, not a box, a gorgeous tube, packed with two lots of wonderful fabric, a smashing printed woven T pattern, sewing thread to match the fabric, a pretty pencil, the quirky sewing illustration on a playing card and a badge. It is joyous and I am thrilled
Powered by an internal desire to create and put out fun in the world month after month.
