off to houston….

Sorry I haven’t posted for awhile…but you all know how crazy it is around market time…we have lost a few great people in our lives this last month….things were tough for us and our employees…but we pulled it together the best we can and off to Houston we go….Tina will not be with us this trip…we will miss her… she has been to every Houston market we ever attended.  But she will be ready to go in Spring I am sure…

I know these are not pictures of Houston…but they are of my new studio!!! My home studio is over flowing with everything…so we are building a new one by our warehouse…we basically have taken over the whole set of suites (4) where our warehouse is located, all but the one where Joe…the owner has his.

Our new studio, is 30 x100… and has 14′ walls!!!!  The sewing space will be 30×60 and the rest will be for storage…who knew fabric took up this much space…This is where will will work on our projects….film videos…store our antique quilt collection, hold classes that we may also tape, and who knows what else…but I thought I would post pics of its progress…So now when you come to Primitive Gatherings you can also visit our studio!

Now did I forget anything for Houston???     Oh…it is only the coconut bra and grass skirt for the Moda party…darn it!!!   …hopefully they will still let me in…in second thought if I did show up in the cc bra and skirt they probably wouldn’t let me in…lol!

  1. Have fun and relax a little while you’re there! When you come back the holiday season starts and you’ll need to be a little recharged!

  2. Hope you and team enjoy the Houston market. You might want to stop by the Libby Leham tribute that has been put together, which will feature as many of her quilts as they were able to get their hands on. I am not a business owner, only an admirer of her art and have been following her story on Caring Bridge every day. Hopefully her recovery from the aneurysm/stroke will be complete and she will eventually be the person she used to be before this terrible tragedy.

  3. Whoa! Coconut bra and grass skirt?!?!? lol! Your new space is looking mighty fine… can’t wait to see it all together! Enjoy Houston!

  4. Looks like we had better plan a road trip to Menasha in the future!!! Have fun in Houston & will be looking for pictures. Sounds like it will be fun.

  5. Condolences to you, your family and employee’s….I’m sorry for your loss.

    The new studio is going to be awesome. Hope I can see it up close and personal some day. Enjoy Houston and the show.

  6. Impressive space! We are planning a 50 x 30 addition to our home and 18 x 22 is all mine … we call this the Studio of the Future… and I can’t wait ’til we say The Future is Now!

  7. Baskets full of happy memories of those who are no longer with you all.
    Your studio looks wonderful. I would love to see it next year sometime. I look forward to your videos. My grandma always said, “keep learning new things, it keeps you young.” Then she pointed to her new digital watch. 😊

  8. You really make it seem so easy with your presentation but I find this matter to be really something that I think I would never understand.
    It seems too complicated and very broad for me. I’m
    looking forward for your next post, I will try to get the
    hang of it!

  9. Fantastic goods from you, man. I have understand your stuff previous to and
    you are just too great. I actually like what
    you have acquired here, really like what you’re saying and the way in which you
    say it. You make it entertaining and you still take
    care of to keep it smart. I cant wait to read far more from you.
    This is really a terrific website.
