Gift Our Mystery Sewing Boxes To A Sustainable Sewist

Stephanie Steele Friday, 20 November 2020

Considerately curated, our Mystery Sewing Gift Boxes are a treat whether you’re a sewing newbie or a seasoned maker.

For those looking to find ethical approaches for their hobby, or perhaps are unsure where to start with sustainability in sewing, Offset Warehouse have taken the stress out of the decision-making. In both the smaller and larger (“mega”) sewing gift boxes, you will find a selection of ethical fabrics, sustainable notions and a PDF pattern voucher code to allow you to explore the freedom of making something for yourself or a loved one.

There are so many possibilities in sewing, and indeed, when it comes to sustainability and ethics. Where do you start when you don’t have all of the information? Offset Warehouse was founded in 2010 to bring that transparency to home sewing and fashion brands. We ask the questions, do the rigorous sourcing, and test our materials so that all you need to do is create, and tell everyone the stories behind each bit of it - right down to the organic cotton thread.


Sewing gift boxes

Our Classic Mystery Sewing Gift Box includes:

  • Two beautiful, ethically-sourced fabrics, from Offset Warehouse, 1.06m to 1.5m wide, 1-metre lengths of each, in different weights and fabric type
  • One downloadable garment pattern of your choice from our conscious-crafting pattern partner
  • One 275m reel of organic cotton sewing thread
  • Two exciting, sustainable haberdashery goodies
  • A sweet Fairtrade treat to keep you warm and your energy up and while crafting through colder weather

Our Mega Mystery Sewing Gift Box includes:

  • Three beautiful, ethically-sourced fabrics, from Offset Warehouse, 0.7m to 1.5m wide, 1-metre lengths of each, in different weights and types
  • One downloadable garment pattern of your choice from our conscious-crafting pattern partner
  • One 100m reel and one 275m reel of organic cotton sewing threads
  • Two exciting, sustainable haberdashery goodies
  • Sweet Fairtrade treats to keep you warm and your energy up while crafting through colder weather
  • For the first 4 sales only! A £5 gift voucher for Offset Warehouse fabrics, redeemable before 31st December 2020 (no minimum spend)

The fabrics range in weight, type and colour - though we have given a “theme” - so that you are able to design a myriad of projects. The accompanying haberdashery items - elastic, buttons and thread - are carefully appraised for their ability to suit all sorts of projects.

And, our sewing pattern maker partner, Friday Pattern Company, is one that we ourselves love and use, chosen for their broad size range, comprehensive garment types and encouraging community support.

Each Sewing Gift Box is minimally wrapped in tissue with reclaimed ribbon that you can re-use, only a few stickers, and then inserted into a recycled cardboard box, ready to ship direct to your recipient (which may well be yourself).

Membership subscription box

What’s more, if you or your recipient is contemplating starting a responsible fashion or creative business, we also have Membership Gift Boxes to our digital platform - where you're at right now - The Sustainable Fashion Collective. Here you will gain holistic guidance and expert advice on Masterclass topics across the fashion and design industries.

The Membership Gift Boxes give you three, six or twelve months full Professional Membership access, along with a wonderful tried-and-tested curation of helpful, ethical goodies for budding entrepreneurs sent directly to their home.

Gift cards

And of course, we also stock virtual gift cards. Selecting fabric for your sustainable sewing friend is tough, so give the gift of choice with our easy digital Offset Warehouse gift card. For this, there is no wrapping or travel miles - we simply email the recipient (or yourself) the gift code that they can then redeem within 6 months.

As we email the voucher, it's also ideal for someone who lives far away or if you're a little pushed for time, or you could print out the voucher to include in with a physical card.
