My Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

Did you enjoy the sights and sounds of the Fourth of July!?!  The sparkles, flashes, twinkles and bangs from all of the awe inspiring fireworks against the star studded sky sure can be something to admire. What talents the fire technicians have to match up the designs, styles and colors of each firework to create such pleasing art for us to enjoy.  Just goes to show you there is a little bit of a quilter in each and everyone of us.

Hello July
      Now that summer is officially here, many of us are looking forward to a little planned vacation or get away.   Vacations are wonderful for the quilter's soul.  Sometimes taking a small break from your passion can re-energize the creative palette.   If you are lucky enough to get some time off and away, it's good to have something to keep you busy during the long hours in the car.  Most individuals with the creative bug can't sit still for very long.  If I am really organized, I like to sew binding on an almost finished quilt or two.   If going on  more of a site seeing vacation, make sure you pick up the newest version of the Quilters' Travelers Companion book that just arrived at the shop.  The book has all the quilt shops across the United States listed, with directions, maps, hours of operations, and with descriptions of the shops. My book sits under the seat in the car, with shops on the way earmarked.  So not to miss a one. It is always  interesting to visit Quilt Shops in other areas of the country and see what they are creating!

       Can't get away for a long vacation!?! Then make lemonade with a weekend get away.  Check out the Nebraska Passport Program, with  80+ wonderful sights and adventures just a short drive away in this wonderful state of Nebraska.  Or make your own mini summer adventure by collecting rows from the Nebraska Row by Row Experience.  It's like a shop hop, only there are no passports and very few rules. You could even earn your self some fabric.      
  If learning something new is your thing this summer, then join us in the classroom.  It's not to late to sign up for our Long Arm Quilting Retreat with Sue Patten.  (But you better do it VERY Soon!).  Sue Patten is from Canada and not your typical quilter.  We are excited to have her visit.  If you would like to add some artistic style to your quilting, and have a good time, then Sue is your gal.

        Thinking of getting the "Best Sewing" machine around!?! We have some great PFAFF Summer Savings.   Hurry in and visit with Scott and/or the rest of the Creative Center staff, they will help you find the perfect PFAFF machine for you.

       And of course, we don't want to leave our Machine Embroidery friends out of the fun.   Just for you, we have booked Claudia Dinnell of Claudia's Creations to come to Country Traditions and teach her "Twas the Night Before Christmas" workshop.  Space is filling up fast for this one, so make sure you check it out and get registered soon.
We sure hope to see you all soon! Until we do, May Your Bobbin Always Be Full!

"You've Been Framed!"
2014's Web Sampler Block-Of-The-Month

Welcome to our 2014 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" Email newsletter.
Over the 12-month course, you will receive directions on how to construct (12) different framed blocks. They will start out easy and work their way up in difficulty as we progress throughout the year. In the last 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 you 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 any line of your choice...Kansas Troubles, Jo Mortons, or just some vibrant tonals would be lovely. Let your imagination be your guide. It will be sensational, no matter what fabric you choose.
