Questions about this item? Customer Care

Our newly relaunched Swatch of the Month is a monthly subscription program from The School of Making for design explorations and embroidery technique practice and development. It brings together our values of design and craft with 100% organic cotton fabrics, offering you the opportunity to experiment with our techniques and designs as you sew your monthly fabric swatch. Our Swatches and Kits provide pre-cut, pre-stenciled pieces with all of the thread needed to explore design, create a garment, build a wardrobe, and fill everyday life with creativity and making.

How It Works
Participants will receive DIY kits for each of the 12 months' fabric swatches to be sewn using embroidery techniques from The School of Making. You'll receive our exclusive subscriber newsletter via email, which includes instructions, design inspiration, and additional techniques for each month's swatch. Embroidery techniques can also be found in The School of Making's Studio Book Series. Each kit comes stenciled and ready-to-sew with all of the notions needed to complete the swatch in the featured design choices.

What You Get
24 Fabric Swatches - Each fabric swatch is a 10" x 16" rectangle of our 100% organic medium-weight cotton jersey. Every month, participants will receive two fabric swatches. The top layer fabric will be stenciled; the bottom layer fabric will be un-stenciled.

10 Spools of Button Craft Thread - Utilized throughout all 12 projects, Button Craft Thread is The School of Making's go-to for all hand-sewing projects. It is strong, durable, and long-lasting.

12 Paper Headers - Made from recycled card stock, each header can be labeled and attached to your fabric swatch before organizing into a three-ring binder.
