Market Prep…almost done

I am so sorry for ignoring this blog and keeping you informed of what is going on with me and the shop…but when its Market time and your fabric arrives late on Wednesday (15th)and you need to cut piece and appliqué 3 quilts to be shipped out the the next week (21st) so they can be quilted sent back, bound and photographed for patterns and brochures.  There isn’t enough time to do much.  I even had help with Amy making all the HST’s for Triangle Gathering….Its also not very glamorous…sometimes its a few days between hairdos but I always soak in the tub each night after sitting for so many hours and stitching.  So this is the story of why the neglect…Oh…and I hope you are all liking out new website for Primitive Gatherings…still a little more work to do but I can’t believe all the features it has and it will take us a bit to learn it all…If you have had problems with not getting to our site…please type in your browser Primitive Gatherings and remove the old cached one in your bookmark and add the new one.  We also have sent out a post from the shop about all the techy stuff you can do, as our site uses the latest technology.

IMG_0442The week before this I was working on new wool appliqué designes…I was bummed because when I was on FB and Instagram everyone was stitching on Autumn stuff and I was working on Spring and Flowers…New projects for Fall Market so shops can buy our designs make them and have them ready for Spring and Summer…Well…I snuck in a new Fall one…Here is Pumpkin Farm…pumpkin farm/primitive gatherings

 

This is what is looks like when I first start stitching… I just drew the branches on the trees and have them stem stitched…pumpkin farm/lisa bongean

 

Then here it is after having one side done…see how it comes to life with the small details you can do with a needle and thread?  Lazy daisy fall leaves…falling off the tree and piling on the ground…the mums are blooming, the fire is lit in the Pumpkin house and the geese are starting to fly south…over the harvest moon…

photo-both sides stitched. The size is 10×30…Notice the cool background wool?  This is a limited background that we will only have for the first kits we make….I love the added interest it adds.  If you want, I say want because I know you don’t need to have another projects…but this one is fun to stitch!  Here is the link to our website for kit and pattern info.  Pumpkin Farm

I will try to keep posting about the other projects…Happy Sunday and Go Packers!lisabongean/pumpkin farm

Updating website!

Let’s cross our fingers and hope the magic happens like it should!

UPDATING WEBSITE TODAY!!! 10/2
by lisabongean
UPDATING OUR WEBSITE
Over the past couple months we have been working on upgrading our website in order to make navigating and ordering on our site easier for our customers. When we upload our NEW site, we are going to need to be down for a span of 24 hours. This is going to happen from Thursday (10/2) at noon to Friday (10/3) at noon. After this time, you will be able to start ordering from the NEW site. The site will look different from the old one, so do not panic if you see something different than what you are used to seeing: our layout will be different, our products will still be unchanged.

Key Features:
1. You will be able to change your password, credit card, mailing and billing
addresses easier.
2. Comments will be seen clearly in your order
3. Search engine is better equipped to find what you are looking for
4. Wish list option

Log In Procedure:
When logging into the NEW site, you will be using your current user name and password.

IF this does not work for you there are 2 steps for you to try.
1. Ask for a NEW password, this will be sent to the email that is on file for you, once you have used this you should be able to get into the site. IF this does not work for you please use Step 2.

2. You will need to Re-register COMPLETELY. Even though you could be a current customer, when we uploaded current customers into the new system, one or two of you could have been missed.

We realize that this switch might not go as perfectly as we want it to, so please be patient with us during this process. We will get everything corrected in a timely manner and get this site running smoothly.

Again thank you very much for your support and understanding,
Lisa and Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop Staff

and the winner is?

I want to thank everyone for the wonderful comments…It is the coolest thing ever to be a MODA designer and get to meet tons of quilters through our LOVE of fabric.  I don’t have to remind you that Moda is the best fabric company around hands down.  It shows in everything they do and how they treat everyone from designers, to shop owners and then end consumers.  It takes a lot creativity, effort and attention to detail to do all things MODA.

I hope while you visited my blog your subscribed so we can continue to quilt together all year long.  I currently am finishing up on all the pattern writing that comes along with Lakeside Gatherings. IMG_9909 Did you notice that Lakeside has homespuns also?There are 24 total light and dark homespuns.  They are again just gorgeous… so soft and wonderful companions to the prints.  Almost all of the antique quilts I collect have homespuns in them.  Here is the homespun FQ bundle next to the print FQ’s.  I know the homespun is going to be scarce as production numbers we not nearly what the prints were…so if you see it in your Local Quilt Shop grab it up…just an FYI.  If you want to visit the precuts on our website you can pre-order HEREIMG_9911

Good Luck to you all and I hope you find your name on one of these winning posts today!  And the winner of the Lakeside Gatherings bundle is….

Getting Ready to post 10th Anniversary Stitch Along Part 4…

PIECED VERSION 10TH ANNIV.SAL

PIECED VERSION
10TH ANNIV.SAL

I am done stitching both versions for Part 4 on the SAL!  Look for it to post next week…You can see a peek on the website! HERE  I want to bring to your attention that we will be making square in a square units for the next round…I just happened to have this 2 1/2″ x 12 1/2″ ruler and it worked amazing for making these units…It has a center line that you line up in the corners of the square and then trim…it creates perfect 1/4″ seam allowances.  The ruler is 2 1/2″ wide so you can do both edges!  Go and get yourself one of these at your LQS if you don’t have it OR we have discounted the ruler for you all…reg.$14.95 for you it will be $11.95! It is a great size ruler for many other things as well…this won’t be the only thing you use it on!

If you  are AUTOMATICALLY receiving the SAL and would like one to be sent with your Part 4 please let us know when placing your order for the ruler (in comment section-say…send with SAL)

If you order each time the SAL posts just add it to your order it there is a drop down box for the ruler on the Part 4… and we will get it out to you with your kit.

1754

Part 3- kit corrections- you will be getting 2 different strips of green fabric…we are NOT putting them in the Part 4 kit.  They will just be in the envelope…so make sure you look for them as well as your Part 4 kit..

If you get your SAL automatically we have already corrected or will be correcting yours with Part 4.

If you order each time the SAL posts we will also be sending the 2 green strips with your Part 4.

If for some reason you are NOT going to order Part 4 and you did order Part 3, email us and we will get the 2 strips out to you.

Again, I apologize for this and hurried to get Part 4 done so you can finish up your Part 3.

 

Now no more words now…Here is a 10ASAL- that this kind Quilter( please email me with your name again…I know I wrote it down somewhere)brought to Grand Rapids show to show me…Isn’t it awesome! Can’t wait to see her next rounds…securedownload-1

Good News Chattanooga TN…Bad News Atlanta GA…

Just want everyone to know we will be in Chattanooga  TN tomorrow for the AQS show!  Bad News…We are NOT going to be in Atlanta for the Original Quilt and Sewing Expo…We are so sorry, but sometimes things happen that are out of our control…so if you are in GA- I guess you are going to have to go to Chattanooga to see us…Nick and Amy are there…Nicks says  it is only 100 miles from the Atlanta show location and he wanted me to let everyone know ahead if possible…

Something you might want to pick up at the show…new packaging for wool appliqué needles…photo 8We are going to start selling them wholesale to shops and had to change the packaging as the cards were too labor intensive…we will still sell the cards in our store but not to shops.  The new packaging comes with 12 needles…6 just aren’t enough for me…tell your local shops to order them from us (primitivegatheringswholesale.com) or Moda will have them too!  I don’t have them on the website yet but will soon!   I promise I’ll let you know when in case you need some.  If you use our #24 chenille needles and can’t live without them…comment on this post and I’ll pick the best ones and send you some!  Be truthful…I want real testimonies…not like the fat loss ones.

I am home working on Fall Market, Lakeside Gathering quilts and lots of other stuff…I will be in Gwinnett GA teaching next week, so I am not at the show….I hope the GA girls are ready to have some fun!!!

I posted earlier about my hand quilting project that I was working on…I finished it up the end of August…here it is..all finished! photo 9 photo 7You can kind of see my sewing space at the Lakehouse here…see how close I am to the water?  I sew right in the middle of everything…there is no sewing room for me…I love it…I can cook..and quilt at the same time…Nick hates my mess though…I was doing a bunch of cutting and just swooshed it all on the floor, it was all kinds of dog ears and little trimmings and he was like…What’s going on here?  I was like..What?  but anyway…I love to hand quilt…I get up pretty early…the morning is the best time to think about things, about what I need to accomplish that day and just lose myself in the stitches and you can’t beat the view!….

photo 10I also started working on my Modern Building Blocks BOM that is starting at Primitive Gathering in October ….It is a huge adjustment from what I was stitching…Here is one of the blocks…next to…Tackle Box Mini…the Moda Love Blog quilt and the bonus project from the Pieced Block of the Week this summer… The MBB quilt is a blast…I stitched the big block…then I starting sewing and before you know it I had 4 more done! Here is a general idea of the whole quilt.  If you want to sign up and stitch these with me we are doing 3 versions…Japanese, Civil War and then the original Modern version…and yes..I am stitching the modern version..just let me get it out of my system and then I will be back to normal…I seen this quilt and spring market…it was awesome! Moda had a green couch with all sizes of pillows made from these blocks on it…I wanted it!!! If someone has a picture of this…send it to me…Here is the quilt on our website if you need to stitch along with me…There are 48 blocks total and it is only $12 buck per month… Modern Building Blocks BOM1867.3486388

Well thats about it for now…What’s everyone stitching on?
