Illumination Now Sold Out!

Box no 28 the-S box October 2018 is a mash up of several influences.

‘Illumination’ pays tribute to the heritage and tradition of Mexico’s Day of the Dead and Halloween. We’re celebrating the symbolism of rebirth, renewal, life and death, along side fearsome frolics and spooky goings on!

We’re also celebrating the exciting mix of cultural festivals that mark the changing of the seasons;  so this is also where  Diwalli, the hindu festival of lights meets Bonfire Night.

The clocks go back, the days are getting shorter. This is the season of lights. Colour and light is contrasted with the dark

Following September’s Jewel, the- S box October Illumination has another bright palette. There is still shine and sheen and still metallic, but this time the palette is bold and primary teamed with orange and purple, black and white.

Pick of the month : The team here at the-stitchery are loving the Illuminations fabrics especially the Day of the Dead skull print fat quarter. (Because of the importance of flowers in this Mexican festival we have also included a gorgeous floral print on a black ground-perfect)

Loved by Hazel and Victoria : You two are gory! Ooo! Zombie buttons and Sugar Skull buttons-we’ve given you a selection.

As always, the-S box is not designed to be a kit, but as ever, the-S box is jammed packed full of inspirational, innovative and useful, crafty goodies

What have we made this month?

As always we concentrate on gifts, accessories and small projects that you can make with what’s in the-S box. Because, Illumination has a bold kid like colour scheme, this month our makes are aimed at kids.
