2024 SATURDAY SAMPLER - NOT YOUR GRANDMOTHER'S FLOWER GARDEN

02/09/24 - UPDATE REGARDING FEBRUARY SATURDAY SAMPLER KITS 
Dear Saturday Sampler Friends,


We have run into a dilemma this month regarding our background fabric. Our pre-ordered bolts of background yardage have been stuck in customs for an extended period due to the tensions in the Middle East. Our distributor is aware of our need for them and has been working to get them to us as soon as possible. They let us know they finally received them at their warehouse this morning. They are expediting shipping to us early next week.

Thankfully, we had enough fabric already in stock to build half the number of kits needed for your February blocks. If you are planning to travel to the shop to pick up your kit tomorrow (Saturday, February 10th) or early next week, we do have some complete kits ready for you to pick up. If you are willing and able to postpone your trip into the shop until later next week, we would appreciate it as we expect to have our shipment to complete your kits by Wednesday or Thursday and will start cutting immediately.

To thank you for your patience in this strange circumstance, and as an incentive to wait to pick up until later next week or the week following, we are extending the window of time to bring in your finished blocks a full week so that you have from Saturday, February 10th - Saturday, February 24th to finish your blocks and bring them in to receive February’s kit free (hooray for more time to finish!). We will also extend the coupon expiration date one week from the date printed on the coupon in your kit so that it will not expire until March 2nd.

The assignment for February is just one block that should be easy to complete in time for March's regularly scheduled Saturday Sampler pickup window.

We are so sorry to throw a wrench in the Saturday Sampler plans for February and assure you we are doing everything possible to get your kits to you as soon as we can.

Thank you for your patience. We look forward to seeing you (and your pretty finished blocks) in the near future!

Sincerely, Corn Wagon Quilt Co.

DESCRIPTION & RULES:

For this year's exciting new Saturday Sampler 2024 program, Natalie Smith of ella+charming has designed an original mystery quilt in a 10-month program that finishes at approximately 68" x 78". We can't show you what the finished quilt will look like, but we can share the color palette and one 15" block. With a variety of blocks -- including some you've definitely never pieced before! -- and a unique setting, this sampler block of the month will be so much fun! If you're confident with basic piecing skills, you can do this and you'll enjoy gaining some new quilting knowledge as we go. Video tutorials will be available on our YouTube channel @cornwagonquilts so be sure to subscribe to follow along with the program. We'd love you to come and play in the garden with us this year!

Skill Level: Beginner
Skill Details: This Saturday Sampler program is a skill building club. If you have practiced basic quilting skills, you can do this! Plus, you'll have the chance to try some new techniques and gain new quilting knowledge.
Instructor: Natalie Smith
Instructor Bio: You've likely been greeted by her cheerful smile... and you've certainly seen her beautiful creations! Our friend Natalie Smith is an absolute ray of sunshine here at the Corn Wagon. While quilts made an impression early in her life, made by her mother and grandmother, Natalie had no desire at all to make her own. Her first love? Books. As a child, Natalie moved from a highly populated, inner city location in Omaha, Nebraska to what she refers to as the sticks, in a very rural part of Wyoming. So rural, in fact, that she attended a one room school house across the state border. Her friends were her books. She immersed herself in fairy tales and grew to love romance. To this day she LOVES a good love story and a degree in French and Russian sounds romantic indeed. But around the time her fourth child was a year old, Natalie realized she needed a new hobby just for her. Time spent as a mom meant little down time for reading and when she did pick up her book, well, she was soon asleep. She had a sewing machine that was used mostly for mending -- not fun -- so she decided maybe it was time to make the most of it. She rounded up some friends and started a quilt block exchange. It was just the social and creative charge she needed. She says she was bit by the quilting bug and it gets worse and worse as the months and years go by. She has now been quilting for 11 years and guesses (with a wink and a smile) that she may be approaching that expert level of putting in 10,000 hours. Her love for the art of quilting shows as her bright and creative personality shines through each stitch she takes. Her next steps in the quilting world have come by way of writing patterns under the name ella+charming and we are delighted to have her designs featured in our Saturday Sampler for 2024.
