Hot Fun In The Summer Time!

My Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

Summer is here and so is the time for summer fun! Let's face it, we all have
a favorite season, mine would have to be enjoying the outdoors and spending time with family and friends. Summer is a time to lay back so you can enjoy life a little more, and  make lots of wonderful memories. Time flies by too fast and in a blink of an eye, the seasons will begin to change again and before you know it, a new year will be upon us. I like to think of each season and each year as another patch in my quilt of life. It is held together with stitches of love and caring that we receive from those around us. My challenge to you this summer is to  have lots of fun, make lots of memories, and continue building your own quilt.  I know I will!

Just for women! Fremont Area Medical Center would like to invite all the ladies out there to the WINE WALK. This is an exclusive event just for women in which we will sample wine and other tasty treats, you can win some door prizes and take advantage of some of the other special offers from participating downtown businesses. There are over a dozen downtown businesses participating in the Wine Walk Event, including Country Traditons. Pre-registration is required for this event, so, log onto or call (402)727-3394.

We have the New PFAFF Passports and PFAFF Performance 5.0 in the store for you to come and play with. The Passport is a lite-weight machine that is great for traveling and taking to class. Weighing in at only 13lbs, this machine is packed full of features including over 70 utility and decorative stitches, has the capability to do free-motion, and features the PFAFF IDT system. At the other end of the sewing machine line, we have the PFAFF Performance 5.0, the newest top-of-the-line sewing machine. This machine has everything but embroidery. It comes equiped with over 300 utility & decorative stitches, full color touch screen, maxi-stitches, and Stitch Creator. You can't go wrong with this one ladies!

And for those of you quilters wanting to get out of the heat and learn something new to embellish your quilts with, join Leslie on Friday, June 28th for
his Circle Maker Drunkard's Path Class. The NEW Circle Maker attatchment from PFAFF is a fun, new, and exciting way to turn those decorative stitches into beautiful rings and flowers all over your quilts giving them a very unique, one of a kind design!

To continue on with the summer fun here at the shop we have
THE ULTIMATE QUILTERS' GARAGE SALE coming up very soon. This is a wonderful time to clean out and consolidate your stash while you earn some extra cash. It's also a great time to shop! Just like with any garage sale, you never know what you are going to find. Remember that old saying, "one person's trash, is another person's treasure!" We are doind the sale for 2 weekends this year instead of just one, so, stop in and pick up your seller numbers and price tags. You will be able to start dropping your merchandise off July 5th, 2013 and it will need to be picked up by July 27th, 2013, unless you have made other arrangements with our staff. And remember, you will be earning Country Traditions Gift Certificates which you can used on anything in our store. Is there a machine you've been pondering about, here is your chance to indulge!

We will also be having our Christmas In July Sales Event July 25th-27th. Come in and join in all the fun. All the new lines of Christmas fabrics are arriving here at the store.

Web Sampler Block of the Month

2013's Web Sampler 

Welcome to our 2013 Internet Block-of-the-Month Program. This is our gift to you for being such a loyal reader of our "As the Bobbin Winds" newsletter. As you know, the sampler block patterns for this quilt are only made available to the loyal readers of the "As the Bobbin Winds" E-mail newsletter.

Over the 13 month course, you will receive directions on how to construct (12) different Star Sampler blocks. They will start out easy and work their way up in difficulty as we progress through out the year. On the 13th month, you will receive the directions for the final layout and finishing of this beautiful web sampler quilt.

This particular project has been designed to be scrappy in nature, however, if your would like to purchase fabric to make yours, we have included suggested yardage with the first block pattern. We made our sample using batiks, but it would be beautiful and exciting to see it made up in say, 30's prints, Jo Mortons, Art to Heart, Kansas Troubles, or maybe the new Serenity line. Let your imagination be your guide. It will be sensational, no matter what fabric you decide to go with!
"Framed Star"
Block #6
