As the Bobbin Winds Email Newsletter : National Embroidery Month! : Volume 2:05:2018

Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

It's National Embroidery Month. Enjoy some quality time with your machine and craft out something amazing. February is the month of love, so spend it doing things you love with the ones you love.

If winter weather has been keeping you indoors, get out of the house and come party with us during the "You Know You're A Quilter When Retreat" this March. Sign ups will begin February 15th. Space is limited. Don't miss out! This two day retreat is always loads of fun and excitement. Have fun sewing on whatever you wish.

A new program has been launched, and we are very excited to share it with you. The Quilt Pro System software will take your designed quilt layout and turn it into easy comprehensive quilt patterns. It will even show you how much fabric you will need to complete the project. Mention our name to receive a special discount on your software package. Coupon code is located below. What will you create using this creative quilting software?
february 92 Gallery West is having an exhibit featuring the Studio Art Quilt Associates. "Passages,"  features many exciting art quilts that are out of this world. Have fun exploring the Hind Gallery and be inspired for your next quilt project.

The Mariners Delight is a great rendition of the mariners compass with a modern twist. Colorful fractals surround the mariners star giving the appearance of looking through a kaleidoscope. This quilt is a great way to use up scraps. Get inspired as you travel each month and explore each block.

Show us some love on our Facebook Page. Send us a "Heart" to show us how much you love quilting. Create your own personalized heart design. Whether it be a quilt, pillow, mug rug, decoration, or embroidered valentines card that utilizes fabric is some way. We would love to see how many hearts we can get. Can't wait to see what you all come up with. We look forward to sharing this great month with you and hope to see you in the store soon.

Until then, May Your
Bobbin Always Be Full!
