Dearest Country Traditions Friends,


We wish you a great New Year in 2012! Filled with laughter, luck, and then with joy and wealth, success and a grin!

This brand New Year with a cheer we'll begin!

Happy New Year!

A New Year, New Beginnings!  It's exciting to think about all the possibilities, projects and creativity a New Year holds in store for us!  We have been very busy planning and preparing behind the scenes for a very exciting year for you!  Hold on to your rotary cutters!  It's going to be a fun filled year and you are not going to want to miss a thing.

We are so thrilled and excited to finally be able to share with you our exciting news.  We just can't keep the secret any longer.  We found out last fall that Country Traditions was selected by our friends at  Better Homes and Gardens to be featured as the Encore shop in this up coming spring edition of Quilt Sampler.  We are honored and humbled to be the first shop featured three times in Quilt Sampler: Spring of 2005, Best of the Best in 2007, and now Spring of 2012.

The photo shoot took place last fall.  Yes, some of you did see the summer things come down, and fall go up, just to find us taking the fall back down and putting summer back up.  The American Patchwork editors wanted a spring/summer look for the shots.  So, yes we did redecorate back and forth and no, you weren't losing it.  Our project quilt is in Iowa, having it's photo taken and directions tested.  We plan to have an unveiling party as soon as we get more fabric from Moda.  So now that we can share our exciting news with all of you, our customers and friends who have helped us become all that we are today,  it's time to celebrate! 

To kick off our 2012 Quilt Sampler Celebration, we have planned some extra special sales and events all leading us to the party event of the year in late April, when the magazine actually arrives.  Mark your calendar for April 26-May 8 for the Quilt Sampler Celebration bash.  Until then, since this is our third time feature , we thought we would celebrate in 3's.  So to start us off, how about right now we take  30% off all cuts of Cara Serenity Fabrics!

It seem to take a little longer this year to get everything together, but we got a full set of exciting classes lined up, a Great March Mystery Project selected,  National Quilting Day Celebration planned,  and  a short, but Fun, Bus Trip planned for April.  The Country Traditions Newsletter and The Classes and Events Newsletter are on line, just waiting for you to read and  print off.  With all that we have planned, there will be no Cabin Fever this winter! 
 
May your Bobbin Always be Full!

Your Country Traditions Friends!

Did you know the post office once again raised its prices on postage!  What's a little old quilt shop to do? We love our Country Traditions Friends and want them to be in the know and all, but boy do we also love all that fabric out there too!  Do we mail out all our Newsletters or buy two whole collections of fabric?  With much debate and heartache we decided to cut back on our mailings a little, after all, you can read and even print them off online, so we can get a couple more really neat fabric lines for all of us to enjoy.  And of course, we have them already printed in color for you to pick up as you shop. 

We have exciting news, great events and fantastic classes lined up for you, all sure to beat any Cabin Fever you may be getting.  And you don't want to miss out on our March Mystery Event, The Spring Bus Trip, the really cool new Saturday Sampler Event  and of course our Quilt Sampler Celebration Bash.

So all you have to do is click here, to read your own Country Traditions Newsletters in full color!

Winter Wonderland of Savings Event


Ok, Mother nature hasn't given us much snow to play in this winter or even a Snow day to spend in our sewing rooms creating. So why not come celebrate the season with us, since we have finally finished our counting of all the yards and have made our annual Gift Market Trip.  We now have a plan for the new year.  And so, it is time for some of the old to go to make room for the new.

We have added over a Hundrend Bolts to the sale area 30-50% off, have discounted Patterns and Books priced to move,  and Notion overstock priced 30-50% off!  As we take down Christmas and sort, we will add to the Sale area, some wonderful Gift and Home Decor items 30-60% off!  Since it hasn't gotten cold this year, we have the fall and winter Riverton Wraps, Gloves, and Scarves all 50%!  Wall graphics and The Potter's Shed Plaques, yes their time to go is here!  They too are 50% off.

 2011 Internet Web Sampler Celebration
Block-of-the-Month

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 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.



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!
