SAL- please read if your are joining in…

Hey Everyone…

Thanks for all the interest and comments about the Stitch Along…I just want you all to know a few things….Like I said…I wasn’t really set up for kitting this so I really wasn’t prepared…

If you want to sign up for the kits here what you can do for us…

First…you have to go to our website and order if you want Part 1, you cannot just leave a comment that you want to order in the comment section on the blog.  We need all of your info to process an order. Click Here…Stitch Along

If you want all the Parts, even though I do not know what each one costs and you still don’t care, write in your comment section you want them all and we will ship them as we put them out.

This is supposed to be a Stitch Along…I will want to see your  parts as we stitch and will have you send your photos in if you wish and we will post them on the blog…Some of you want the kits and are saying to keep all of the parts until the end and send them all at once…we can do this, but this project may not be over until November…do you want to wait or stitch along with us?

I do not know how much, how many or any real details right now…but If I were a customer like you…When I got an email I would order my kit…print my pattern and then order a couple other items, like: threads, a couple of patterns or whatever is new,  because the shipping will not change that much…we cannot send anything out the door for less than $4 and still be able to track it.  So why not get a few more things for not much more shipping or the same cost of shipping.  Remember this will be spread out…I will post about every 2 to three weeks…give or take depending on how busy my schedule it…but promise it will be done before the end of the year…and also remember it is going to be a SMALL quilt.  Not a bed size.

We can possibly throw it in with a BOM (not BOW), if you let us know you are in one…its just a lot to keep track of, but if you cannot find anything else to order we can try to put it with a BOM.

Some people are really caught up on shipping…here’s how I look at it…I love the fact that I can shop in my PJ’s and before I know it, it is here…now if I don’t have to leave my house, put make up on…brush my hair or put gas in my car…I’m good with paying for shipping…lol..Linda Hrcka and I were discussing shipping costs and we BOTH agree there are many advantages to it…we like staying home and having IT come to us.

When will you get your kit…After we post each part we will wait about a week or so, so we know how many to make…we don’t want to over kit or under kit and be making them again…So please know that we are not shipping them as soon as we post them. Give us a week to collect the orders please.

Please email the shop if you have any questions…as it is easier to print an email if you want to change something we then would have a record of it…    is the shops email

Lastly I cannot believe how many of you have ordered kits…its amazing…thanks again

I thought I would share what I am stitching on tonight…Our Statewide Wisconsin Shop Hop is starting June 6??? I have the center done…now for some piecing around it…this will also be a little quilt 18×21-ishIMG_9535

My Best…Lisa

      I so agree with Kathy about shipping. Bring my “goodies” right to me!

    I soooo agree with you about the shipping. Less hassle means more time for sewing, right?

    Hi, Lisa,
    I’m excited to be doing a Stitch Along with you. I love your style and enjoying seeing what you come up with. I live in the middle of Iowa and visited your shop for the first time last summer when we were at Green Lake. (and bought more then I should have but I enjoyed myself!) I’ve going to the Green Lake Conference Center (formally the American Baptist Conference Grounds) since I was 3 or 4. We will be there again and I’m looking forward to stopping in at your shop and showing off whatever I have stitched at that point. Thanks for doing this. I’m expecting to really enjoy myself and excited to have something wonderful when I’m done.
    I also like your Wisconsin piece. Will that pattern be available at some point? Or maybe you’re going to have to do a pattern for each state!
    I’ll be pawing through my stash in the morning choosing my wools. I already have a piece fabric that I’ve been saving for something special.

    I love your Wisconsin block. Will this be available to us “out of staters”? the sad ones who are too far away to hop…

    Thank you Lisa for an update on the SAL. I ordered my part 1 already and commented that I would like all of the parts no matter the cost. Your Wisconsin block is beautiful and I too wish I lived closer so I could participate in the shop hop. I wish we could have “Primitive Gatherings II” here in Michigan but I really don’t mind ordering online…like you said in your post…”ordering in PJ’s is a good thing and not putting gas in the car is a very good thing.” Thanks, as always, for all you do.

      Hi Connie: Where do you live in Michigan? I am originally from there and my kids live in Lansing and Royal Oak. Maybe we can connect in the future…if you aren’t too far from them. And, I agree with your comment about a Primitive Gatherings II…wouldn’t that be nice. Although a road trip would work too. Happy stitching. Teri LaVoy, Sandy, Oregon

    I love the stitch a long! I have never participated before and look forward to the adventure. I will be using my own materials ( I have more than I could ever use) so the kits do not apply to me. I just wanted to say that your staff is amazing. I am doing the Houses Houses BOM or maybe it is called strip every 2 months not sure but anyway it is astonishing the amount of work that must go into kitting this thing! The quality of the materials is outstanding! I have participated in other online quilt stores BOM’s and been disappointed in both quality of the materials and organization of the process. I would highly recommend the store and will also more than likely sign up for another BOM in the future.
