I live on a lake in beautiful Butte Des Morts, WI. I have three sons: Lance (forever 29), Luke 33, Jake 32, and two grand-babies, Little Man and O-Bug. I've been married to the love of my life Nick, since 1998 when we started our crazy adventure together! I am a quilter, rugger, and gardener. I also love to cook when I get the chance. Thanks for visiting and supporting Primitive Gathering Quilt Shop where I try to bring you the best Moda fabrics and wool projects anywhere!

  2. LOVE IT !!! That sign would sure get My attention ! Wish you could open a shop down here in Houston … !!

  3. That sign is awesome, but I wish your shop was in California… know Lisa, Quilter’s Coop in Temecula is going to close unless she finds a buyer!!!!

  4. That sign is fabulous and CLASSY….well done. Diana Tatro Yuba City, CA BUT, I HAVE been there !!

  5. Nice sign! Now to go and check a map to seeif it is anywhere near any place I can persuade my husband we need to visit when next in the US!

  6. I am so there…in about 13 hours!!! Love the sign!!! How awesome, like seeing your name “up in lights”!!

  7. Simple, to the point, easy to read. Great job! Becky in Georgia, just wishing I could drive by it!

  8. Someday I plan to see your shop in person………for now It’s great to see you at the shows!

    1. Great sign! Has all of the pertinent info in letters big enough to read. I’d say you did good.

    2. I went to the IQF in Houston, 2011 and went thru your booth everyday I just loved it I wish you were near Buffalo, NY , I would have to get a second job. Donna

  9. Visiting your website and I see the upcoming shop hop! Your ad sign will definitely be a grand road map.

  10. The billboard is awesome but really… I don’t think any quilter could get within 50 miles of the shop and not just sense that you’re there… nearby. The tingling in my fingers starts about 25 miles away… my heart starts racing about 20 miles away… the goosebumps are there 10 miles later… the butterflies in my stomach are fluttering by the time I hit the 5-mile mark… and by the time I’m getting off the highway, the paramedics are on alert. A billboard? Are you trying to kill me?

    Congratulations! 🙂

  11. I went to the IQF in Houston 2011 and loved your shop I went everyday, I told my husband I wanted to go and we live in Buffalo, NY of course he thinks I am crazy, Now that I have been buying off the website I may need to get a second job, Donna

  12. The sign was just what I needed yesterday. I knew the shop was up there, but did not know where. I just had make a detour to a funeral of all things, and found the shop so easily. A wonderful stress reliever, and I left with more projects and ideas for the summer. The sign is just perfect.
