kate’s swatch experience

Get inspired every month.

Whether you’re a quilter, crafter, or garment maker (or all of the above!) you’ll find just what you need with Kate’s Swatch Experience!

As a subscriber to this service, you’ll receive a curated collection of fabrics, hand-selected by Kate, every three months, pattern suggestions, video tutorials, exclusive content, and more!

Kate’s Swatch Experience ships free and includes a 10% discount code for all the featured fabrics and patterns.

A Confident Experience

Sometimes, the most difficult thing about sewing is knowing where to begin. With Kate’s Swatch Experience, you’ll find answers to those sewing questions that stump you, an abundance of inspiration, access to tons of helpful resources, and a supportive community of makers all in search of the same thing!

What to expect.

Curated Collections

The process begins the way all good things should – with beautiful fabric! Inspired by the upcoming season, we spend several weeks curating three swatch sets:

  • 10 piece {gar}Meant for You, Warm Tones collection
  • 10 piece {gar}Meant for You, Cool Tones collection
  • 12 (or more!) piece We Quilt This City collection

Perfect Projects

Once the fabric has been selected, it’s time to decide what to make!

To help further inspire you, we pair each fabric in our Warm & Cool {gar}Meant for You collections with a modern clothing pattern from one of our awesome independent pattern companies.

Likewise – for our We Quilt This City collection – Kate designs a small & large quilting project. The quilting cotton bundle you’ll receive contains enough fabric to make Kate’s small project!

Sewing Resources

We want to make sure that – no matter what you’re making – you feel confident making it. Which means we have to do our research!

Every season, Kate writes a mini profile of each {gar}Meant for You fabric which includes information about content, stretch, care, price, and which needle to use. We then film a video to provide you with a better sense of how the fabrics handle in real life.

For the We Quilt This City collection, Kate films video tutorials and writes a blog post to guide you through the small & large projects! These videos and blog tutorials are designed to help you quilt with confidence!

Hand-Delivered Inspiration

Kate’s Swatch Experience collections are released four times annually on the 8th of August, November, February and May. Once your curated card or bundle arrives, all that’s left is to get sewing!

Subscribers to both the {gar}Meant for You and We Quilt This City collections will receive a unique 10% discount code that won’t expire until the next season’s release, and which can be applied to all the featured fabrics, quilt kits, and the suggested garment patterns.

Kate’s Swatch Experience FAQs

Swatch Sets

Your swatch card discount code is valid for 90 days after the card’s release date. The exact date of expiration will be included in your subscriber email and on the swatch card.

The 10% discount can be applied to all of the fabrics, patterns, and kits featured in the season’s Swatch Experience.

There are no customizable options in either Swatch Experience. One of the best things about our Swatch Sets is that the fabrics featured are meant to be viewed collectively, thereby prompting combinations and/or sewing projects you may not have previously considered!

Additionally, we will send you swatches of any of our fabrics for only $1.25 – just click the ‘Buy Swatch’ button included on every fabric web page.

Depending on availability, past swatch sets and project finishing kits may be available for purchase at a discounted rate. Please call us at (406) 540-4068 or email us at info@theconfidentstitch.com with purchasing inquiries and questions.
