M.E. Time

Well, the cat's out of the bag! There's a new subscription service in town, all catered to machine embroidery enthusiasts like you. (And believe meyou've never seen anything like it.)

Does your M.E. Time look something like this? (Click below!) 


Yep. If machine embroidery is your happy place, M.E. Time is for YOU. (We've even got a printable door hanger for your sewing room at the end of this post, so be sure to read to the end!) 

What is M.E. Time?

You're familiar with how subscriptions work. From magazines to movies, we all love having something we enjoy delivered right to us.

Subscription boxes work the same way: you choose the type of subscription you want and it's delivered to you on a recurring basis. And goodness, they're so much fun to look forward to!

Which brings us to M.E. Time. (And yes, the "M.E. " stands for "machine embroidery!") Through M.E. Time subscriptions, you'll enjoy a wide variety of creative experiences—all from the comfort of your home.

Let's take a look at the type of subscriptions offered through this exciting new service.

Subscription Types

We're kicking off M.E. Time with three different subscriptions:

When you subscribe to anything  on, you automatically become a member of M.E. Time. There will be NO membership/subscription fees or purchase required.  You ONLY pay for the subscription(s) you want!

For example, if you just want The Bella Box, you'll only pay for the box + shipping on the scheduled billing date. You don't pay anything else until the next Bella Box rolls around. (Please note that there is a one-time card validation fee of $.01 when you set up your account.)

Having a subscription  guarantees you a box every time they come out, unless you skip or cancel the subscription (which is always an option). 

I'll describe each subscription in a little more detail below. (Hang in there with me!) But first, let's talk about the difference between doorstep and digital options. 


Doorstep vs. Digital

The Bella Box is a doorstep subscription only, while Perfectly Pieced and Collectible Christmas are offered in doorstep OR digital options. Here's the difference:

  • Doorstep subscriptions include a tangible box with full-color instructions, fabric kits, and more.
  • Digital subscriptions include downloadable files only, with no physical product delivered.

Embroidery files for both types of subscriptions are downloaded from your M.E. Time Digital Library (available in your online account).  This is where your files and instructions are stored permanently, so there's no need to worry about losing them! 

The Bella Box

Delivered twice per year (spring and fall), The Bella Box is your ultimate machine embroidery experience. With a Bella Box subscription, you'll enjoy 5-6 feature projects with fabric, blanks, batting, and embellishments, along with full-color Kimberbell instructions, 6 bonus designs, and more!

All projects can be made in a 5x7 machine embroidery hoop and are perfect for both beginners and experienced embroiderers. 

Perfectly Pieced


We know how hard it is to achieve those perfect points! With Perfectly Pieced, you’ll discover the life-changing simplicity of piecing and quilting in-the-hoop. Receive a different pattern every month, enjoy endless “tumble” configurations, and create perfect points, corners, and 1/4" seams EVERY time. Both beginners and experienced quilters will love Perfectly Pieced!

Choose between receiving the digital subscription in your email inbox OR the curated box on your doorstep. 

Collectible Christmas


Your Collectible Christmas subscription includes the designs and instructions you need to create a small Christmas project each month. (Doorstep option also includes fabric and more!) Stitch at your leisure and by the end of the year your themed collection is complete.

All projects are made in a 5x7 hoop and are perfect for both beginners and experienced machine embroiderers.


Prices vary between subscriptions, including whether you choose the doorstep or digital option. (Digital will always be less.) See all pricing on

Remember, there are NO M.E. Time membership fees. You ONLY pay for the product you subscribe to and will know exactly when the billing date is. 

Skip or Cancel

You may skip or cancel your M.E. Time subscription(s) at any time. Isn't that great? You're not locked into anything! We'll preview the products beforehand so you can choose to receive or skip your subscription.

For example, let's say you're going on an extended vacation and want to skip July's Perfectly Pieced project. Simply use the skip option in your M.E. Time account! (Please note that if you skip a subscription, you will not be receiving that particular project.)


M.E. Time and Kimberbell

Although Kimberbell is the parent company of M.E. Time, it's important to understand that they are two completely separate brands. 

So...who's ready for a little M.E. Time? 🙂
