Q: I want to get a three month subscription as a Christmas gift; Can I get the first box sent to me and the rest sent to the recipient?Asked by Clara G., November 2019
Certainly! Just put in your address at first, then change it once you receive the first crate. We're always glad to help, too! ~Melanie with Craftsman Crate
Q: I haven't received my A lot March box yet so if I'm charged for April will both come at the same time? Also I did not see my 50% off on my first crate for you all. Please advise.Asked by Kelly A., April 2020
I'm sorry - I think there's been a misunderstanding. The only account we have that matches your signature started on April 2, so naturally the April box would be your first shipment. Unfortunately, the half price promotion was only for the month of March. Could you be thinking about a different subscription through CrateJoy?
Q: Does this box use UPS for delivery?Asked by Brandy H., March 2020
We usually ship through Priority Mail!
Q: I just received my first box from a gift subscription when I called the giftor to thank him he said that I should have received a box last month because he got a shipping notice- I never did. Help?Asked by Mike G., February 2020
Mike, I am so sorry! I just found this question. could you please email us at info(at)greatwaterspress(dot)com with your full name so we can check on this and make sure you receive everything you are supposed to? We don't want you to miss a thing!
We got our first craftsman crate this week. Everything we needed to complete as many as 12 projects was included. Lots of wood for carving, lots of sand paper, a nice set of carving tools and a hand drill, plus a really nice book loaded with ideas and templates for wood carving. My 15 year old son was so inspired he started carving immediately. Well done craftsman crate!! We're excited to get our next crate just sad that we have to wait a whole month!!
Great gift idea for all ages. Learned new skills, strengthened present know-how and inspired new projects
This month’s crate was serendipitous. For the past few months I’ve been looking online for quilling kits. And, surprise, the crate contained a quilling kit. It’s like you read my mind. Thank you. Hint: I’m also interested in wood burning, wood carving and embroidery. Just to name a few.
Very expensive shipping! Otherwise, best crate I’ve received, ever. Very interesting! Can’t wait to get started.
I ordered this for my crafty husband. It's perfectly curated with the supplies needed to try out a new craft without over-investing in any one project just to try it out. He has been thrilled with his first 2 boxes and can't wait to see what's next!
A little disappointed with our first crate. Was a bit on the cheap side. Hoping for a better box next month. Waaaay bellow the $30 paid.
It was fun. I especially enjoyed having 2 items to do as the first can always be rough on a new skill
I thoroughly enjoyed making this project. I can't wait to see what comes next.
The box is interesting, crafty, and well put-together: a wood burner, some simple sample patterns, carbon paper to transfer, and some pieces of wood to practice on. Even the box itself is a nice unfinished wood that can be used as a surface. That being said, it felt a little light for the price.
Was kind of disappointed, as a crafter, to get stuff I keep on hand all the time like the decoupage kit I just got. I was hoping to get a more “out of the box” kit like the wood burning or leather working kits. Things I wouldn’t normally do, but want to try. Hoping for a better kit the next time around, but planning on canceling if I’m let down again.
