Market Prep…almost done

I am so sorry for ignoring this blog and keeping you informed of what is going on with me and the shop…but when its Market time and your fabric arrives late on Wednesday (15th)and you need to cut piece and appliqué 3 quilts to be shipped out the the next week (21st) so they can be quilted sent back, bound and photographed for patterns and brochures.  There isn’t enough time to do much.  I even had help with Amy making all the HST’s for Triangle Gathering….Its also not very glamorous…sometimes its a few days between hairdos but I always soak in the tub each night after sitting for so many hours and stitching.  So this is the story of why the neglect…Oh…and I hope you are all liking out new website for Primitive Gatherings…still a little more work to do but I can’t believe all the features it has and it will take us a bit to learn it all…If you have had problems with not getting to our site…please type in your browser Primitive Gatherings and remove the old cached one in your bookmark and add the new one.  We also have sent out a post from the shop about all the techy stuff you can do, as our site uses the latest technology.

IMG_0442The week before this I was working on new wool appliqué designes…I was bummed because when I was on FB and Instagram everyone was stitching on Autumn stuff and I was working on Spring and Flowers…New projects for Fall Market so shops can buy our designs make them and have them ready for Spring and Summer…Well…I snuck in a new Fall one…Here is Pumpkin Farm…pumpkin farm/primitive gatherings

 

This is what is looks like when I first start stitching… I just drew the branches on the trees and have them stem stitched…pumpkin farm/lisa bongean

 

Then here it is after having one side done…see how it comes to life with the small details you can do with a needle and thread?  Lazy daisy fall leaves…falling off the tree and piling on the ground…the mums are blooming, the fire is lit in the Pumpkin house and the geese are starting to fly south…over the harvest moon…

photo-both sides stitched. The size is 10×30…Notice the cool background wool?  This is a limited background that we will only have for the first kits we make….I love the added interest it adds.  If you want, I say want because I know you don’t need to have another projects…but this one is fun to stitch!  Here is the link to our website for kit and pattern info.  Pumpkin Farm

I will try to keep posting about the other projects…Happy Sunday and Go Packers!lisabongean/pumpkin farm

Updating website!

Let’s cross our fingers and hope the magic happens like it should!

UPDATING WEBSITE TODAY!!! 10/2
by lisabongean
UPDATING OUR WEBSITE
Over the past couple months we have been working on upgrading our website in order to make navigating and ordering on our site easier for our customers. When we upload our NEW site, we are going to need to be down for a span of 24 hours. This is going to happen from Thursday (10/2) at noon to Friday (10/3) at noon. After this time, you will be able to start ordering from the NEW site. The site will look different from the old one, so do not panic if you see something different than what you are used to seeing: our layout will be different, our products will still be unchanged.

Key Features:
1. You will be able to change your password, credit card, mailing and billing
addresses easier.
2. Comments will be seen clearly in your order
3. Search engine is better equipped to find what you are looking for
4. Wish list option

Log In Procedure:
When logging into the NEW site, you will be using your current user name and password.

IF this does not work for you there are 2 steps for you to try.
1. Ask for a NEW password, this will be sent to the email that is on file for you, once you have used this you should be able to get into the site. IF this does not work for you please use Step 2.

2. You will need to Re-register COMPLETELY. Even though you could be a current customer, when we uploaded current customers into the new system, one or two of you could have been missed.

We realize that this switch might not go as perfectly as we want it to, so please be patient with us during this process. We will get everything corrected in a timely manner and get this site running smoothly.

Again thank you very much for your support and understanding,
Lisa and Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop Staff
