Saturday Sampler 2023 - 2024

Due to weather, the January Saturday Sampler is CANCELLED. January kits can be picked up anytime next week during regular business hours.

Saturday Sampler will begin on March 11, 2023 and continue for twelve months, ending in February 2024. The book that is being used this year is Farm Girl Vintage by It’s Sew Emma. The two colorways for this year are Brights and Blue, Green & Yellow.


Here is How It Works:

  • At 8:00 and 9:00 a.m. on the second Saturday of each month*, we will introduce that month’s block and provide free instruction on how to make that block. These two sessions will be identical, attend only one.
  • Each participant will buy a fabric kit the first month for $6.00. It contains fabric for one block in the colorway of choice.
  • After listening to the instruction, go home and sew the block. Bring the finished block to the following month’s Saturday Sampler class and get the next month’s fabric kit free
  • Participants must bring in their own finished block to get the next kit free. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy!

There are a Few Conditions:

  • Participants must have their own copy of the book Farm Girl Vintage by It’s Sew Emma. Books are $29.95 and should be purchased at Threads of Tradition when you register for Saturday Sampler (if participants own the book already, that is fine).
  • Participants are allowed to sign-up for more than one colorway; however, you only get one free kit per month. Participants must sign-up and pay for any additional kits.
  • To receive your free kit, you must either attend one of the instruction times on the second Saturday at either 8:00 or 9:00 a.m. OR bring your completed block into the shop anytime in the week following Saturday Sampler (up to and including the third Saturday of the month).
  • If you cannot come in during the week after Saturday Sampler, you can still buy that month’s kit for $6.00 while supplies last. If there are no more kits, you will have to select your own fabrics and the staff will be happy to help you make your choices! Bring the finished block into the shop anytime during the following month’s Saturday Sampler week and your next kit is free.

Monthly Door Prize:

  • We highly value the instruction time that we provide at no cost to you each month of Saturday Sampler.To encourage attendance each month, we will be offering each person that attends the instruction time the opportunity to win the door prize for that day.
  • Challenge blocks from Farm Girl Vintage will be available each month; however, completing the challenge blocks is not a requirement to be part of the drawing.

Inclement Weather:

  • If you feel the weather is too bad to travel, please stay home on Saturday Sampler day and visit us on any day in the following week. We will not cancel unless the roads are impossible for staff to make it in. If we do decide to cancel due to extreme weather, we will not try to reschedule, but will postpone that month’s lesson until the next month. To find out if class is still happening or not, you may call 800-590-9755 and the receptionist should have the latest information.

*April’s Saturday Sampler class will be held on April 15, the third Saturday of the month, to avoid any potential conflicts over Easter weekend.
