And so it begins…

I know I have not posted in a few days, but I am trying to get ready to leave for teaching in California and Utah…two very different climate changes…I must say….packing is a nighmare, but I am getting it done….One suitcase for Cali and Utah, one for when I fly back to Cali from Utah for the Roadf to California 2013 Quilt Show in Ontario CA, that Nick will bring along with him…that is 16 days of clothes!!!! But I am packing something NEW for this year…..I have to admit this was a little awkward at first to me…but my DH wanted this done and has talked about doing it for a couple of years…and sometime you just have to go along with it…Here is Nick’s Idea for our Upcoming 2013 show season….If you look close (or click on the pic) you will see our 31 “tour” locations and dates…that we will be traveling to this year.  Are we coming close to you!!!!   Our “rock concert” T’s are  super soft  will be available for $20 in our Show Booths all through the year.   I hope we didn’t waste  $$$ on these, but if we are stuck with them I won’t have to pick out what to wear…I could sleep, eat, and work in this T all day it is so comfy!  Let me know what you think, Was this a good idea or are we (Nick) a little over the edge on this one?….but it is not your average quilting t-shirt I have to admit that…

PS I personally will not be going to all 31 shows….that would  really put me over the edge…or anyone for that matter…We have 3 different “Roadie” crews going to shows this year…Please come to visit us….LB

    I was filling my calendar out and Looked up the Long Beach Show, I didn’t see anything listed. Would Love to Know. AND I think the T shirts will go! Especially to the younger quilters among us!!! Good Idea!

    See ya at Ontario in a few weeks. It has been cold here. Patty Mayer Laguna Niguel, CA

    The T’s are really cool looking. Is the design a symbol for something?

    Wow – these look great! I think they will go fast. Is Spring Market just for vendors? I have a son that lives in Portland. Wouldn’t this be a great reason to go visit during that time?

  13. January 10, 2013 at 9:23 pm

    See you in Raleigh! 🙂

    I love the shirt!! Great idea Nick. I’m sure you will sell them all. I want one and will be sure to attend one of your shows, not only for the shirt but for kits, patterns, wool and your wonderful booth!!!

    It looks awesome!

    I LOVE them!! They WILL sell! I’ll be your first customer, how can I purchase one? Ani

    I like the looks – are they all the same color? Good job.

  23. January 10, 2013 at 10:18 pm

    I live this shirt! Finally a quilting shirt that isn’t “frumpy”! Tell Nick thanks! Can we order then online? I hate to wait until Houston!

  24. 26 Mary Jo
    January 10, 2013 at 10:32 pm

    Love the shirt! I hope they won’t be sold out before I see you at the Grand Rapids show.

    Yeah Nick! A few years ago my husband attended the Lancaster PA show with me and told me he would never appear in public with me if I wore one of the pastel “old quilt lady shirts” …. especially one that is more than one size too small… you know the look! I hope you printed shirts in sizes x-small to xxx- large so that everyone gets the right fit! Every quilter is a rock star. Now we can look like one!

    The rock T’s are a clever idea! Speaking of T’s, I received 2 of the shop T’s listed online for Christmas, and I LOVE how soft a comfy they are!

    Hi Lisa- I’m writing on behalf of three of us in your class in Orange County on Sunday. Our course materials said that we would be purchasing kits-are you bringing them for all students? Or do we need to let you know beforehand? All of us definitely want one! We’re really excited to meet you.

    This is the first rock concert tour shirt I “MUST” buy in 25 years. Love it!

  30. January 11, 2013 at 3:36 am

    Great looking shirts! What show is in Baltimore, MD in May? I’m excited!!!

  31. 35 Renee Welton

    I think it’s a great idea and I like the design. I predict that you sell them all !!!

    OMG! I absolutely LOVE this idea and the shirt! Makes packing for long trips easier for you too! Brilliant! The rock star logo is awesome!

    What a neat idea. My only negative comment is — you spelled Pittsburgh without the ‘h’. Here in PA we definitely have an ‘h’ at the end of Pittsburgh. Hopefully I will see you then.

    • January 11, 2013 at 7:23 am

      bummer…but thanks for letting us know…I will have to see if it was wrong from the start or if the graphic was typed wrong..

      • January 11, 2013 at 3:29 pm

        The Pittsburg(h) show is also listed as being in Augusy.
        Love the shirts. Good job Nick! (don’t you hate it when men have good ideas! JK)
        Hope there are some left in November when you get to Minneapolis.

        Oh my…I hadn’t seen the Y, instead of T at the end go August. I hope all of this is not an omen for Pittsburgh. It really is a great place!! Love the shirts.

  35. January 11, 2013 at 7:17 am

    Super cute.Sure you `ll seel all them!!

  36. 44 Patricia D. Roberts

    Yes, yes and yea you will be in Cincinnati, O. in April. Can’t wait to see you all. Love your booth. I am an admirer of all that you create. Good luck on your tour. See you soon.

    Those are great! Good idea Nick! Hope we will be seeing you both in Grand Rapids, MI.

    I won’t be able to make the shows this year … can I get one from the shop? I think they “ROCK” and are a great idea! How cool to collect them from each year … I can see them up on EBay selling for millions!!!!!

  39. January 11, 2013 at 9:00 am

    A hilarious idea–love it! I;m sure you will sell a boat load of these–I know I will have to have one!

    Love the shirt. Great idea Nick. Must get one when you come to Georgia. Can’t wait.

  42. January 11, 2013 at 10:46 am

    Great idea. I always get a shirt when my favorite band comes to town. Now I will need a shirt from my favorite quilter!

    January 11, 2013 at 10:53 am

    These are really cool, Lisa! Did you ever think back in your Darting Needles days that you would have your own road crews??

  44. January 11, 2013 at 11:50 am

    I think they*re fantastic and if I were able to attend any of your shows I would buy one. Good luck at all your shows,

  45. 53 Cindy D
    January 11, 2013 at 12:32 pm

    Great idea! Hope I get one at some point this year. Tell Nick – great idea!!!!

  46. 54 Gina

    Cute shirt and great idea…now if I can only find a show that I can get to!

  47. 55 Becki Pender
    January 11, 2013 at 2:55 pm

    From the picture the shirt looks great. If a person does not get to any shows can we still purchase? Nice work NICK!

    I like the t-shirt. I will want one maybe two.

  50. 58 Janet
    January 11, 2013 at 6:20 pm

    Love the shirt! All that travel would make me crazy, but I’m sure glad you do it! See you in Sunday’s workshop!

  51. 59 Jean Nolting
    January 11, 2013 at 6:30 pm

    You know we will have to order that cute shirt!

  52. 60 Brenda Y

    Very nice shirts, would these be available on-line or in your shop?

  53. 61 Rachelfriedrichs
    January 11, 2013 at 10:36 pm

    Love the t-shirt!!! I think that it is great that they are
    not your typical quilters shirt, a little edgy! When packing for CA
    be prepared for some colder weather, it has been chilly!

  54. 62 Janan Doster
    January 11, 2013 at 11:06 pm

    Great idea Nick! We all love the shirts. Glad you are coming to Alabama!!!!!!!!

  55. January 12, 2013 at 6:33 am

    Hey chickie…I think they are the cutting edge. Tell Nick he did OKAY… I would love to wear them at each show and not have to worry about what in the heck to pack!! And you both look so good in BLACK!!! (it’s all about the presentation .. you know!)

  56. January 12, 2013 at 6:35 am

    oh… and yea… it’s right up there with the “branding” concept for the company!!! You know what I mean.. seeing that pink shopping bag in the mall… “yep…they’ve been to Victoria Secret!” Now we’ll see these t-shirts and they’ll be saying.. “yep…they’ve been to Primitive Gatherings booth”!

  57. 65 Julie K. Green
    January 12, 2013 at 12:18 pm

    I agree, it does look nice !!! Will look for you and Nick and the crew to be wearing them when I see you !!!

    Love the shirts. Will you personally be at Lakeland or Cincinnati?

  59. 67 Sue Howard
    January 13, 2013 at 5:13 pm

    Too cute-see you in Paducah! Hope there are shirts left by then.

  60. 68 Evette
    January 14, 2013 at 12:48 pm

    love it! so glad they are in black, be sure you have those
    larger sizes! Tell Nick it would make a great tattoo! See you in

    Love the T

    Can I just say what a comfort to discover somebody who truly knows what they’re discussing online. You certainly realize how to bring an issue to light and make it important. A lot more people need to check this out and understand this side of your story. I can’t believe you are not more popular given that
    you certainly possess the gift.
