My Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

Summer is in full swing now. Hope everyone has had a safe and wonderful 4th of July, whether it was watching a grand display, or just watching the kids meander about the yard. July is always such a colorful month and fills us with a burst of creativity. Just looking at those fireworks inspires us to create something that truly pops. Sometimes you wish you could just pluck them out of the sky and paint a portrait, or sew together a fun and unique quilt. July is just so aw-inspiring!

The Ultimate Quilter's Garage Sale starts this weekend. So many great deals and a variety of wonderful "new to you" fabrics, quilt patterns and many other craft items to choose from. So be sure to do a walk through when you visit, to see what new things call to you.

Summer Santa Hat
The heat is rising, but the root beer is cold! The 29th Annual John C. Fremont Days Festival is this weekend. There is always so much fun and excitement going on. While your husbands are out looking at the car show, stop in and enjoy some fun for yourself.

Santa's little helpers have arrived this month for our Christmas-In-July Store Event, and are ready to help you with your Holiday to-do list. They bring with them good tidings, demonstrations, and entertainment, as well as a few snacks! We are receiving daily, new holiday fabrics and patterns to get your projects ready just in the "Saint Nick" of time! The CT elves have the peddle to the metal on their sewing machines, creating spectacular holiday designs and splendor for all to see. So stop in July 23rd, and let the celebration begin!

Get your paddles rowing in our 2015 Row by Row Experience Event. This years theme is H20, and is sure to be as exciting as it is refreshing. Get started by visiting participating shops and receive your free pattern when we see you! Can't Wait!

Join us for a fun-packed weekend, August 7th & 8th as Diane Gloystein, National Educator for Sulky of America, presents the Sit & Sew Retreat. The retreat is based on her new book "Embellish Your Life," which introduces great embellishing techniques that are sure to make any project unique. This retreat is designed to take all sewing machine owners up a notch in their creativity with their machine.

Keep those dazzling fireworks in your mind. Join us for a class which is truly a star burst. The Triple Dresden Tree Skirt is a wonderful quilt-as-you-go project that is sure to jazz up your tree this year. So get signed up today!

Web Block of The Month Sampler  

Heritage Sampler Web Block of the Month  
"Heritage Sampler"
2015's Web Sampler

Welcome to our 2015 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  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 Morton's, or just some vibrant tonals would be lovely. Let your imagination be your guide. It will be sensational, no matter what fabric you choose.

*Download your Web Sampler Block by clicking on the block name above and then print off the pattern. You need Adobe Reader installed with the latest version to open the PDF and print the pattern off.

**If you missed a past block, visit the Country Traditions On-Line Newsletter page for archived copies of past "As The Bobbin Winds" Email editions.
