Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

The April wind is blowing, which means spring is finally here. As we wait to get in the garden, it time for quilter's to get out and about. The Great Nebraska Quilter's Migration has begun. The "Seasons Sewn" Nebraska Shop Hop started Thursday April 7th and goes through Saturday, April 16. So hop into your car and head out on the road.


Be sure to wave at fellow quilters you see on the road. If your not registered, we still have a few Shop Hop bags left to get you into the game. Make sure to stop by and see our cute "Shop Hop" Pattern, "Sewing through the year." We think it turned out really cute. And yes, we do have kits for the project available.

Please stop by the Fremont Art Association/Gallery 92 West and see the Country Traditions Design Team Art show. Members of the design team each contributed a piece or two of their unique works to the show. It's very inspiring to see all the ways you can use your fabric collection. And May is your turn to show off your works and talents! We are taking registrations for our 1st Annual Customer Quilt Show, through April 16. Please share your talents and works as we inspire the community around us.

Also this April 16th, join us as we start a "New" Saturday Sampler. This year's sampler is called Quilters Guide to The Galaxy, and it is sure to be out of this world! Utilize your favorite fabrics from Kansas Trouble to beautiful batiks. This quilt looks absolutely stunning in just about any fabric you choose.

One of the best things about Spring is watching all the new blossoms and blooms around us. And the shop is no different. We have hundreds of "New" bolts making there way to the fabric shelves, and new gift and home decor items and collections through out the shop. We surely have your spring "Gift" giving needs covered.

So far the Month of April is off to a great start. Let's make it even more fun and exciting. There is plenty to do and see, and many great sales opportunities. We really look forward to seeing all of you.

Until then, May Your Bobbin Always Be Full!

Your Country Traditions' Friends
