Quilty Box Review

TrustPilot gives Quilty Box 4 out of 5 stars, garnering it the ranking “Great.” Out of 46 reviews, 72% of reviewers listed Quilty Box as “Excellent,” and 17% listed Quilty Box as “Great.” There were only four negative reviews.

Overall, customer satisfaction is pretty high. The consensus seems to be that the items in the boxes are of top-shelf quality. The boxes all arrive on time, and customers seem to appreciate the human touch that comes from the letter written by the artist-curator. Reviewers emphasize the creativity that the quilty box prompts, often commenting that it wouldn’t have occurred to them to purchase certain tools or explore certain patterns if they hadn’t gotten them in the box. Descriptions like “fun,” “high quality,” “exciting” and “love it!” came up in multiple reviews. 

We like to look at negative reviews just in case there are any potential issues you might want a heads up about. 

When it comes to Quilty Box, most negative and critical reviews seemed to be matters of personal taste. One reviewer said the fabric in the box she received was quality, but “the colors were ugly.” Another reviewer was disappointed as the patterns were “not what I would have chosen for myself.” One reviewer offered that while she liked the concept, she hoped for a box option geared more towards modern artists rather than traditional quilters. 

Customer service was only mentioned in one review, and it was in a positive light.

When Does It Ship?

Quilty Box ships on the 11th of every month.

Shipping is free within the United States, $10 to get to Canada, and $20 to ship to countries outside the United States and Canada.

How Do I Cancel?

While the website informs us that a subscriber can cancel anytime, there is no clear answer as to how you might do that. It might be that it is possible to cancel by selecting options available under the “edit” tab when you make a subscription account. However, we would recommend emailing customer service to cancel.

Company History

Patrick Claytor is the founder and CEO of both Quilty Box and Big Sky Fulfilment. He graduated from the University of Montana in 2008 with a degree in Computer Science. He purchased Quilty Box in 2015 and was able to get it off the ground by gaining expertise in warehouse fulfillment. 

Claytor envisioned Quilty Box as a platform for artists and craftsmen to give and gain inspiration, in addition to providing a monthly sample of fun quilting products. This dream works out by emphasizing curation by featured artists and encouraging subscribers to share their successes on social media.

Claytor himself is inspired by the many quilters and artists he meets, often in real life venues like the International Quilt Festivals held in Houston, TX, and Chicago, IL. He also personally interviews the professional quilters he meets on his podcast titled, appropriately enough, Quilty Box Podcast. The podcast is available on most podcast platforms, including Stitcher, Soundcloud, iTunes, and PodBay. 

Quilty Box operates out of Missoula, Montana. You can read an interview with Claytor over at Crafty Planner.
