July News!

And the winner is….Sheryl Morrissette! Congratulations! Sheryl is the proud owner of a brand new Janome sewing machine! Her name was drawn from tons of entries in our contest. Happy stitching to you, Sheryl, and thank you to everyone who participated!





From now until September 2 you can travel throughout the state and all around the country and stop in at participating shops to pick up your FREE Row by Row patterns. This year’s theme is Sew a Season and we chose Fall for our row because…well, it’s Vermont! Check out the “Row by Row Experience” online and come on over to Countryside and get started! We have free patterns, kits available to purchase for our row, and patterns and kits for a cute tote bag made with the theme fabric.

Or where do you put your #12 piecing needle when you need to hem those jeans and pop in a heavy duty #16? How about using “MyPad?” This is a great way to keep track of every different size and type of needle you own! Just push your needle (almost flat – not straight up) into the foam pad in the correctly labeled space. You can even customize a label by writing the info on a small piece of fabric and attaching it to the pad with your needle. Use the flower head pin to mark the size needle you’re currently using in your machine. Keep this handy – right next to your machine – and never lose track of your needles again! Ten per cent off this month!
