Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

It's February, and love is in the air! Not only does February play host to Valentine's Day, but it also proudly hosts National Embroidery Month. So get those embroidery machines out and get them humming. If you don't have one, pull out the hand stitching and see what you can create this month.

Embroidery Hearts

If you are in need of a great embroidery design project, join us for the Anita Goodesign's Winter Wonderland Embroidery Retreat. Learn embroidery and quilting techniques and how to apply them to creating Coasters, Snack Bags, Printed Quilt Blocks and much more!

This February is Leap Year, so it's time to host our Leap Year Sales Event! Check out the amazing deals that only come around once every four years, including buy 1 item, get an extra of the same item at 25% Off, and Fat Quarter Bakers Dozen, where you buy 12 Fat Quarters and get the 13th free. See store for further details.

March is right around the corner, and with it comes March Mystery. This is always a fun and exciting time of year. Join us and play detective as you unravel the clues to your own quilt. It's always fun to see how it comes out in the end. Registrations have started, so be sure to stop in and get your clues starting March 7th.

If you are looking at purchasing a new embroidery machine, now is the time! Right now Pfaff is offering Mail-In Rebates on the Creative Line of machines. Pair these great deals with the 48-Month 0% Financing and you will have a great machine without breaking the bank. Handi Quilter has the Simply Sweet Valentine's Day Special going on. From now until February 15th, if you purchase a Simply Sixteen machine package, you will get Electromagnetic Channel Locks FREE. Also if you purchase a Sweet Sixteen sit down machine, you will receive a FREE TruStitch and Overlay. Don't miss out on these great deals!

The groundhog may not have seen his shadow, but it is still pretty chilly out there. Come get out of the cold and warm up in a class or two. This month we have some great ones. Easter is coming early this year, so be sure you are ready by taking this super cute Easter Baskets Class, utilizing Little Bit's method of foundation piecing. Or make dazzling blocks with the Pineapple Star Quilt. This design looks great with just about any fabrics you can think of. Try Batiks for a bold splash of color. Kansas Troubles would also make a great version of this quilt.

Since it's National Embroidery Month, we have decided to give you something a little extra special. Create some fun gifts for your Valentine this year with cute little embroidery hoop wall art projects. Easy to put together and super fun to decorate. Even the kids would love to partake in these fun little craft projects.

Seems winter is starting to come to a close. Soon the flowers will be sprouting and the air will hopefully start getting a bit warmer. The decor at Country Traditions has already started to blossom. Come on in and see what else we have going on here. We can't wait to see you!

Until then, May Your Bobbin Always Be Full!

Embroidery Hoop Art

Capture What You Love... In an Embroidery Hoop!
heart border
embroidery hoop art Get out those beautiful fabrics that you have been so attached to. The one's you are always scared to cut into. What better way to keep those little scraps, than by displaying them proudly in your craft room in the form of wall art.

These great little ornaments make fantastic gifts and you can change them throughout the seasons.
Simply just get your favorite fabrics and a few embroidery hoops. Attach your fabrics to a layer of batting or stabilizer, and you are well on your way. With needle and thread, add some embellishments or fun appliques to make each piece an original. Use glue, buttons, string, or whatever else you can find to give dimension to your project. When you are all done, simply add a backing to the back side of the projects and place a homemade label on it.

All that's left is to proudly mount them on your wall, and if you would like, mount a picture of them on our Facebook Page.
