Sew-Jo's Spring Challenge

Sew-Jo's Spring Challenge

Hi everyone,

Are you ready for another Sew-Jo’s Creative Sewing Challenge?

This time we have decided to issue a “Box Top” challenge! What is a “Box Top” Challenge you ask?

We have collected up a variety of different box tops and created a mystery bag.  Each bag contains one box top along with 3 fat quarters of fabric in colours that are in that box top. Kit price is $20.

Your challenge is to create a project using only the colours that are in the box top in approximately the same amount. For example, if the box top you get is mostly white with a little bit of green, red, brown and black, then you project must be mostly white with a little bit of the same shade of green, red, brown and black.

This is what Jo did in a similar challenge. 
Some of you may recognize it.

the box
The fabrics you receive in your kit are yours to keep, but you are not obliged to use them in the challenge project.

You can create anything you want, a wall hanging, a bag, a piece of clothing, a garden flag …. whatever your imagination comes up with.

Bring us your finished project by the June 15 and we will give you a 20% discount off your next purchase. *(Some restrictions will apply.) We will display your entry in our backroom gallery so that everyone can see it in person. Covid restrictions permitting.  You've amazed us with your creativity in our previous challenges; we can't wait to see what you'll do with this one.

*20% Discount can not be combined with any other discount. Sewing machines are exempt.

Remember, our store hours are Tuesday through Friday between 10 am and 4 pm.  We've got lots of new fabrics coming in for spring.  You can check them out at

Hope to see you soon!
