Was it expensive?

I paid about $12 Canadian for the pattern.

is it difficult to put back together?

Not at all because all the sides are connected to the bases.  You just pull the sides together and put the lid on.

Was the company called "charted imagery?"

Yes, that is the name of the company.  This is what I found for their contact information (their is an e-mail address link at the bottom)


and this website has pictures of their products:  (it says to click on the Company Name to be taken to their website but that doesn't work because I don't think they have a website)

craft_ee_me, that looks very similar to what I did only mine had more sides and the little box in the middle.

Would you be willing to list materials used and maybe a tute, or would that be against the rules?

The pattern, pieces, etc. are under copyright so I can't post anything here.

I'll look tomorrow and see what the ordering instructions say for contacting them (check on page 3 for details)

Pre-wash both front and back ca few times before basting and you should be fine.  Flannel doesn't  look brand new after washing though, but if it's just for you then no problem.  Also, I have heard not to use sheets to back quilts because they are a different thread count than quilting/decent cotton fabric and over time the front a back will shrink and wear differently.

I have washed all the fabric already so the shrinking should be out.  This is a quilt for me and hubby on our bed so it won't get lots of use - it's more to look pretty - so I think that using a sheet should be okay.

Thanks to everyone for their advice.

That is so cool! 

You say that the patterns can be ordered?  Would you pretty please post a link?

The company is not on the internet.

Added Nov. 29, 2007 - I was back at this same craft show and bought another kit and the designers told me they now have a website.  It's http://needleboxesetc.com/

In December I was at a large craft show and came across a booth with a product I had never seen before.  They offered either the completed project or the pattern to make one.  Being the crafty person I am (and cheap), I decided to buy the pattern and make it myself.

The lady who sold it to me said that it should take about 4 hours (but it took me way longer) and the only thing I needed to provide was the material and white craft glue.  There is no sewing involved in this, just gluing

This is the outside of my needle box

From the side:


This is called a six sided box and they had many more patterns - a light house, outhouse, bird house, dog house, 8 sided box, 4 sided box and ones they call grandma and grand-daughter boxes.  I think I'm going to be ordering more from them!
