The Spotted Box

I am excited to announce that Sewing Alley will be in the Spotted Box for January!

Never heard of The Spotted Box? Here is some information from the website.

What is it?
The Spotted Box is a box of family-oriented, eco-friendly samples from independent crafters, all packaged together and sent directly to you! Designed with the young family in mind, these handmade samples are focused on children and their mothers.

What does it have in it?
The Spotted Box can include samples like: Bath and body, doublers, candles, bookmarks, candy, stationery, bibs, wool food, toys, paper arts, wipes, wool wash, tarts, mama pads, dish clothes, teas, food, dog treats, gift certificates, magnets, pens, hair products, jewelry and more! Each month it changes depending on the participants.

How do I get one?
The Spotted Box go on sale the 15th of every month at the The Spotted Box cart.

What is The Best of The Box?
Its a product chosen to be one of the best in that month's Spotted Box, the business that gets the honor receives a banner ad in the listing as well as an additional free box.

Here are some pictures of the samples I sent in. 3 ounce samples of Sewing Alley Play Dough. The size of a regular play dough ball is almost 16 ounces! 3 ounces seemed a perfect sample size while still being useable.

Samples in production. Each batch was divided and weighed into 3 oz balls. The balls had to cool before they were bagged.

Bagged samples

60 samples in all!
