|As the Bobbin Winds Email Newsletter: Volume 7:20:2011
|Dearest Country Traditions Friends,
Welcome to the "New" As the Bobbin Winds Email Newsletter. We know you have all been going through withdrawal as we switched over to our new hosting site, and worked our way through the web world learning curve. Thank you to all of you who have been calling and worrying that you had gotten lost on the list, because you haven't heard from us!
So much has happened since our last email newsletter, from the communication side of things we launched our new web site. If you haven't logged on yet, please take a few minutes to click around: www.countrytraditionsonline.com. We are able to update the site ourselves (yea!), provide you with a monthly happenings calendar and the ability to print off the snail mail newsletters, at home and add pictures of events and happenings at the shop, just a few of the many exciting benefits the new site provides.
This has been such a "Fun" year at Country Traditions, we have gotten to spend time with "old" friends and make all kinds of "New" friends, that we have to take a moment and personally welcome all our "New" friends from the Nebraska's Indendent Shop Hop, Minnesota/Iowa Bus Trips, the Dodge County Relay For Life, the First Annual Accuquilt Retreat, and the many shows we have traveled to over the last couple of months. We truely have had the time of our lives meeting all of you! We look forward to many more visits together and becoming "Best of Friends"! We hope you enjoy your first addition of "As the Bobbin Winds."
Until next time, May your bobbin always be full!
Your Country Traditions Friends

| 2011 Internet Web Sampler Celebration
Welcome to our 2011 Internet Block-of-the-Month Program. This is our gift to you for being a loyal reader of "As the Bobbin Winds". You can only get these sampler block patterns
by being a loyal subscriber of "As the Bobbin Winds" email newsletter.
Over the course of the next 13 months you will receive directions on how to make (12) different Star Sampler Blocks, starting easy and working up in difficulty as we move throughout the year. On the 13th month you will receive the directions for the finishing layout of this beautiful sampler quilt.
This 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 fabric designed by Jo Morton, but it would be beautiful in Batiks, Art to Heart, 30's, Kansas Troubles, or the New Serenity Line, Let your imagination be your guide!
Are you ready to get started!
The first block in our series is the
Double Friendship Star.
*Download the Star Sampler block by clicking on the block name above and then print off the pattern if you like. You will need Adobe Reader installed with the latest version to open the PDF and print the pattern off.
