Hi there! I'm Amanda Kelly, the owner and creator of Stash Builder Box.
I'm a Jesus lover, wife to Kc and stay at home mom to 3 little girls -- 4, 2 and 1. I did a few sewing projects in jr. high home ec. classes but I didn't really started sewing until 2011 after our first baby. After some hiccups with my first machine (and almost quitting there!), the very first thing I attempted was an old school 1960's dress pattern for our daughter...to say it was catastrophic would be an understatement.
With my baby taking some amazing naps and Pinterest blowing up like crazy, I wanted to find a MUCH easier project and I stumbled upon some easy baby blankets. From there, I started pinning a bunch of amazing quilts that I would hope to one day figure out how to do. I completely got immersed with everything quilting and picked a disappearing 9 patch quilt as my next sewing project. From there, I read through as many tutorials as I could find on EVERYTHING quilting -- from piecing to binding and even free motion quilting. On June 25th 2013, I finished my first ever quilt from start to finish (including the free motion quilting part!) and to say I was in love is an understatement.
The idea for SBB was born in January 2016 when my husband was thinking about doing a monthly subscription box for his retail repair company. We did some research for his sake but instead I realized there was a whole world out there in this new monthly box market that really didn't tap into the quilting market. Stash Builder Box is a box with a cause for all ages and skill levels.
For every box we sell, we take 20% to make and donate quilts to change lives. We work with many organizations to donate quilts to children who are sick, traumatized or otherwise in need.
Questions, concerns or would like to collaborate? I'd love to hear from you!
Feel free to reach out to me anytime --
Questions about what I believe? Jesus Christ has changed my life and I'd love to talk with you about it, if you have any questions. I'm involved in a local church in Salt Lake City and if you want to know more, check out my church's statement of faith
I hope you enjoy your Stash Builder Box as much as I love putting it together each month!
