My Dearest Country Traditions Friends,

     Summer has quickly come upon us. A time for family picnics and vacations, as well as celebrating the special woman in our lives that gave us life, and the hard work of those graduates who are beginning a new chapter in theirs. It is a time to continue to watch everything blossom into wonderful things.

       We have also had something to celebrate this year. We are featured in the Quilt Sampler magazine, along with our pattern Blossoms in the Garden. It has been such an amazing journey to recieve such an honor, and we would like to thank all of you for making it possible. If not for you and your passion to quilt your dreams into reality, we would not have had this wonderful opportunity.  If you are interested in purchasing the Blossoms In The Garden Kit please visit our webiste at or stop in the store and say hello. The pattern is located in the the Quilt Sampler Magazine which we have available for purchase in the store.

         We have also been busy preparing for the AccuQuilt Retreat that will be coming up next month. The dates are as follows: June 20th - June 21st. There will also be an AccuQuilt Reunion Retreat June 23rd - June 25th. You will not want to miss this retreat. A time to quilt together and make many new fun-filled memories with lots of wonderful people. If you would like to register or learn more about the retreat please stop in our store located at 330 N Main St. Fremont, NE or visit us online at There you will be able to print out your registration form.

Way to go Pfaff !! They are celebrating their 150th anniversary this year. We are very excited for them! They are a truly innovative company who have paid attention to the technological advances of the times. They have done many things that would not have been dreamed of years ago. From linking a computer to a sewing machine in 1991 and having it run on DOS for the first time. To their "Activstitch" which revolutionized the sewing industry. It is apparent by the details and hard work that goes into their machines that they truly care about their products and the people that use them. We look forward to seeing what they will produce in  the next 150 years. The possibilities are endless! Stop in the store and see what these amazing machines are capable of.

   We have some fun and exciting events coming up, make sure you check out the calendar on our website  Sign up for your class today!

May Your Bobbin Always Be Full,

Your Country Traditions Friends

One Stitch at a Time

Friendships are made one stitch at a time.

A feeling of comfort so hard to define,

Like a fine old quilt is soft and warm,

Friendships unfold and then conform.

Friendships surround, yet set us free,

So each person can be what she must be.

Together they grow and soon both find,

That friendships are made one
stitch at a time!
Thank-you for all your Friendship and Support throughout the years!  Enjoy a "complimentary" copy of the Spring 2012 "Quilt Sampler"  with $50.00+ purchase!*

*As supplies remain, one copy per person, please!

Dont' Miss Out!

2011-12 Internet
Web Sampler Celebration

Welcome to our 2011-12 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 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!

Block 11
Churn Dash Star
 *Download  yourStar 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.

**If you missed a past block, visit the Country Traditions On Line Newsletter Page for Archived copies of past "As the Bobbin Winds" email editions.
