There are so many goodies in each box — treats like coffee, tea, hot chocolate, snacks, a journal or notepad or book of writing prompts, pens and stickers and pins, and writer’s favorite things. But most important is the monthly novel (with signed bookplate), an inside look at the publishing process, and an exclusive writing passport (I. Want. Them. ALL!!!!! LOL but for real, I do) penned by each month’s author (who better to get perspective from, right?!?!). There are exclusive online chats each month, and somehow Victoria and Lindsay find a way to sprinkle in all kinds of inspiration and encouragement.

The materials in my box was great quality and there was a very generous amount. There were a few fun surprises tucked in as well, which I really found to be thoughtful. I think one of the best aspects of this subscription is the tutorial videos that walk you through how to put the pattern together. I've never sewn clothes before so I was really nervous to get started; the videos were really helpful. The pattern in the box wasn't quite my style, but after watching the videos I was able to adapt it a bit and make an item that I really love. This is a really fun way to learn a new skill.
