Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

The May flowers are growing! And so is the amazing selection of fabrics and home decor that have just made their appearance in the store. It's time to dust off the machine and get some spring cleaning done. Get that fabric stash organized, the random projects in the closet sorted out, and get something creative done this month!

It's spring cleaning time here at Country Traditions. We have revamped the fabric shelves and lined them with all sorts of amazing new fabric lines. Be sure to check out the 500+ bolts of fabric that are now in the Sale Area for 50% off. Our staff have been busy bees! They have worked hard adding many new bolts to the Batik section. Check out the many batiks that are now 30% off. There are so many of them!

Our First Annual Customer Quilt Show is now in full swing. The quilts have been created throughout the many Classes, Saturday Samplers, March Mysteries and Web Samplers that we have offered throughout the years. There is amazing talent now hanging in our ballroom. Be sure to come and view the fabulous works from our gifted customers and vote for your favorite. Also stop in the store Saturday, May 7th, and join us for the Quilt Show Reception from 2-4 pm. It's sure to be fun and exciting as we enjoy a few snacks and mingle with our quilting friends.

It's Creative New Beginnings month! Enjoy great savings when you purchase a new Pfaff Passport, Quilt Expression or the Creative Sensation Pro. There is also A-May-Zing deals with Handi Quilter, starting with $0 down, 0% Interest AND $20 Shipping. That's a huge savings! Come on in and test drive one of these great machines today!

If you are looking for something fun and vibrant to do this spring, join us for Prickly Heat, a stunning quilt that uses the new ColorWorks line of fabric by Northcott. This quilt looks like its complicated, but it really is easy with the pre-printed fabric panels. Or if you are looking to try something out of the box, why not try 4 Patch Stacked Posies? This great quilt uses the same material for all the blocks and the border by simply cutting the repeats. Simply choose a great large print material and you are well on your way to creating this fun and exciting quilt.

It's getting warmer outside, the flowers are blooming, and the rain is few and far between. It's time to get creative with some new projects. So come on in and have a look at all the amazing new things we have in store for you!

Until then, May Your Bobbin Always Be Full!

Your Country Traditions' Friends
