Tomorrow starts my 12 day countdown to Christmas…I am going to share with you 12 of my favorite Quilt related items… most of which help me to be a “better” quilter, some of them just because I like them. Some of my items you will be able to purchase from our store if you wish, or you may find them on your own, hopefully in your local quilt shop.
(Side note here:…I go on a bit about another topic here, bear with me….)Please…please…please… support your favorite/local quilt shop! or I’m warning you…it may go away… here is my motto on this and it goes for other types of stores too…Support the business you for sure cannot live without….so in other words…if you cannot live without your local quilt shop…you may go there on your lunch hour for inspiration or to chat with the associates for an “issue” you are having, BUY from them! This includeds everything that they offer…we all know you can get “stuff” at Joanne’s or where ever using those 50% off coupons, just to get you in their stores so you will be tempted to buy more…buy what you cannot buy at your independent quilt shop from there, buy everything else at the quilt shop…then they will stay in business and you will not harbour any guilt if they close.
Now I know I am an online merchant for most of you…but probably most of what I offer is not in your local quilt shop, but I am sure they have rotary cutters and any necessities any quilters needs if you want to support them by buying those items from them. If you ask them to carry things you are interested in and they do not listen to you, their customer, then you are off the hook from buying online from a shop like mine….we also wholesale our books, patterns, hand dyed wools and wool kits to shops all over the country and internatioanlly…if you cannot find Primitive Gathering’s stuff at your LOCAL shop ASK them to order them from us so you can come in and buy them, this means my Moda fabric lines too!!!…just my 2 cents for what it’s worth…
Join me here everyday for the next 12 days for this fun event…we may even have some Holiday Gifts for you!!! I love giving presents!!!
