Q: Do Sew What project boxes require a sewing machine? Are the boxes suitable for a 7 and a 9 year old?Asked by Masey P., November 2021
Our projects and tutorial videos are designed for creation with a sewing machine. Also, they are suitable for ages 8 and older, or about age 6 or 7, if the kiddos are sewing with an adult.
Q: Do I need a sewing machine to create these projects? Asked by Gabrielle M., September 2021
Each of our sewing kits are designed for use with a sewing machine, but are sent with tutorials perfect for those that are new to sewing with a machine!
Q: I have a subscription. How do I edit the patterns? When I go to your website, I can’t link the subscription I have with Cratejoy. Thanks!Asked by Rhiannon B., November 2020
Hi there! Yes, our site and Cratejoy track subscribers separately. But, all of the project video links and the link to download the project pattern do not need proof of membership. All you need to do is type in the link. Are you having trouble with a certain link?
I recently started a 6 month subscription. I like that Taylar precuts the fabric, a huge timesaver for when you just want to sit and sew! The box includes everything to make the project except the sewing machine.
I am SEW glad that you are enjoying the pre-cut projects! One big reason that I started this business was because I was a busy person that wanted to still be able to sew--and could find ZERO pre-cut projects for sale! So, it is good to hear that you are enjoying the fun and quick part about the pre-cut projects. :)
My daughter loves Sew What Box. She gets so excited each month to see what her next project will be. Anne H.
Thank you for the amazing review! I am excited to send next month's project your way--it is one of my favorite so far!
SewWhatBox is the best source for me because I took Home Economic class at least 39 years ago and never touch a sewing machine due to being the Navy and never taking the time since! So last year happened and I purchased a sewing machine to wonder how to start my venture of sewing. Well, YouTube is a great source: through searching to get into my sewing vibe I looked a number of monthly subscription and SewWhatBox was the perfect match for me! It's amazing and extremely exciting to get a new box full of goodies every month (one sewing project with all supplies needed including printed and online video to demonstrate everything) additional fabric, needles, thread, and other goodies!!! And not to mention other boxes along the way! I even received the 12 days of Christmas Box: double AMAZING!
Wednesday on YouTube, an additional means to add on to your monthly box for different project for your new fabrics in your box that I enjoy or you can make your on project.
If you want an amazing new box every month SEWWHATBOX is for you: like it is for me!!!

Thank you SEW much for the awesome review! :)
We signed up for The Sew What Box subscription last year during covid. Every month we would look forward to our box to appear in the mailbox. The projects are fun and interesting. The materials are nice and the bonus item is always useful. Taylar’s videos are easy to follow and always available online. Even past boxes. This year we had to take a break from our subscription for a couple months. Taylar showed us how we could pause our subscription and was very supportive & encouraging. This month we are able to start receiving The Sew What Box again and we couldn’t be happier! The customer service that Taylar provides is very personal. She responds quickly to emails and is willing to answer any questions. Taylar welcomes everyone into her Sew What Box family with open arms. Thank you!!
I am SEW happy that you are able to start receiving boxes again! We have some really cool things planned for the next few months...
This was a very fun and informative kit! I really enjoyed it
