Happy Thanksgiving!!! Are you ready for our Christmas Gathering?







I’m sure everyone is getting their stuff together for their turkey day celebrations!  Take a break for a minute and read about our 2014 Christmas Gathering this year…We have themed it “Heart and Home”…I believe that home is where most of us want to be the most, especially those of us who travel a lot…I love the log cabin block but seriously have not made very many projects ever with it…Using the log cabin block as a starting point I designed 3 patterns for you, if you participate in our Christmas Gathering…what do you need to do to participate if your in town or online???  You can come into the shop on Saturday form 9-3:30…the shop will be brimming with new samples…cookies, coupon book for 2015 and door prizes!  Yes…you know all about all the cool door prizes we have…we also are having our annual bed turning of antique quilts again…at 11am.  You need to purchase $25 in (new-not a bom that you are already signed up for) regular priced merchandise.  You will get 3 Heart and Home themed patterns and the kit for the pincushion.  Here are the projects.FREE PATTERNS/lisabongean  .  Kits will be available for these patterns also.  If you CANNOT come into the shop…you can still shop via the internet! What would we all do without it!!! With a $25 order you will get the three patterns and a pincushion kit, the 2015 coupon book…maybe a door prize…we save half of them for the web quilters…no cookies…bummer, but hey, we’ll post the recipe!  We will accept ONLINE orders from Thursday (27th) through Sunday the (30th.)  If you would like more pincushion kits they will be $6.  You will automatically get a pincushion kit…do not put it in your cart unless you want an extra one(s).  After the Chrimstmas Gatherings Event they will be $7 kit only…so you get a deal if you order more during the event.  They are super cool and easy to stitch!  I love the featherweight machine…everyone should have one of those!  Here are some close-ups of the other projects and their pricing.

I also want to tell you about the new mugs we have made for this special event…We have a limited amount of this log cabin mug for 2014, this will be an annual thing…so we can collect them, notice I said we…I lovlisa bongean/ 2014 muge drinking from these mugs…and…they make awesome vessels for presents for your quilting buddies or for yourself…bring it to work so you can be reminded of what your really want to be doing instead of working…lol…unless you work for me!     Mugs sell for $18.50  These mugs are hand made locally in my town. One of Jake’s buddies works there and this is just another way to support another local small business.  IMG_1165-2I love the detail.  We only ordered a limited amount of these mugs…I hope you will want one for you or that special quilting friend. ….Hop on over to see Jess’s post of more pics of the shop on the shop blog… Primitive Gatherings Blog  

I mentioned the 2015 Coupon book earlier that you will get…this is the BEST thing for all of next year we will run specials and you will be able to take advantage of them!  This coupon book is given to you as one of our gifts during this event…After the event we charge $10 for it…but this coupon book has many $$$ of savings in it…one for example is 40% off one item…which you could use on a wool kit!!

I hope that covers all of what I was supposed to share for the Christmas Gathering…but I really want to take the time to say how THANKFUL I am to have this talent and to be able to share with all you quilters…quilters are the best people…I am also thankful for this shop we run and the great people who I work with everyday which allow me to offer all of this to you.  I am also thankful for my husband Nick, and sons Luke and his fiancé Brooke,  Jake and his wife Lauren…you make my life so much more exciting and wonderful.  THANK YOU  and have a GREAT holiday, with your family and friends and eat lots of turkey and fixins!!!

    Lisa, Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, as well. We (quilters) are thankful for you and your shop and all that you do for us. Your holiday patterns/projects are wonderful and I can’t wait to order things to be able to have them. Please enjoy your day tomorrow and thank you again for everything you do. You are an awesome lady (but Nick and your family already know that!)

    Hi Lisa, I love your blog and have been visiting it for about a year or so now. Your Thanksgiving offer is very generous and is spurring me into venturing into the world of wool. Not ever having done anything in wool, I would love to try a small kit, to get me started. Can you point me in the right direction for wool kits? I’m seeing lots of patterns (many of them free?) but I can’t find any kits.

    Thanks, and Happy Thanksgiving!


    ps forgive me if you see this comment twice, I previously posted it on the wrong page. Sorry ~

    Lisa, you have outdone yourself this year! All of the new projects are just lovely and the pincushion is darling…yes, everyone should have a featherweight. They are too fun to sew on. Have a great Thanksgiving with your family. Looking forward to another stitching good year with your inspiration to keep me creating…

    Hello and Happy Thanksgiving. I am so bummed….not that I live in Michigan but unable to make it to your Christmas Gathering! I am a little confused…I would love to purchase two Log Cabin mugs. May I do this on line? I do also wish to order a punch needle pattern or two. Can I do this at the same time? Thank you.
