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!

Maybe next time you order you can pass on that it would sell great online!

That is awesome & I'd love to make one for a gift for my mom the quilting addict.

Love the box design & your fabric choice is great.

That is way cool.  Would you be willing to list materials used and maybe a tute, or would that be against the rules?  I would love to make a few for my sewing room.  Or maybe could you supply the snail-mail address (I know they are not on the web).

I believe there was something similar on the Carol Duvall Show.

My craft supply philosophy I stole from a line from AVP. ''I'd rather have it and not need it, than to need it and not have it.'' But, they were talking about a condom. Tongue
