Needful Things…Coming soon…December 13th

12 Days of ChristmasWell here we go again…This is the third year we are going to be promoting 12 needful things all quilters need to have…If you have been a regular you know I am not a gadget person…I do not think we NEED everything that is marketed in the quilting world…I do look for things that are exceptional and make quilting easier or more enjoyable and sometimes it is HARD for me to come up with 12 new items every year…So with that in mind, I want to invite you to The 12 days of Needful Things… counting down to Christmas…now we are going to give away something everyday of these posts and you could be a LUCKY winner…All of the items I am bringing you are going to be on SALE on our website til the end of 2014.  If you wish to order these products please keep in mind you probably will NOT get them before Christmas…this is not meant for that…Think of it as something you can buy with YOUR Christmas money…this is for YOU or your quilting buddies…and we really don’t need them to be under the tree…we all like presents at various times…Now if you want to wait and place one order at the end of the 12 days that is fine…if you wish to place an order and want us to save them and add them together at the end this is fine too, as long as you state in your comment section to SAVE UNTIL THE END this actually helps us to know if we need to order more or if the quantities we have are sufficient.  But if we receive your order and it doesn’t say to SAVE we will process it as soon as possible.  I also do not have any idea if we are going to sell 5, 50 or 500 of something…so please- we ask for understanding and patience in getting your items to you…we WANT you to get them asap…because we want you to be happy and we want to sell them to you so we can keep this business going!!! It is nice to be supported when we take the time and effort to bring you these wonderful things…

I want to say in advance that I hope everyone has a wonderful Holiday season and you enjoy it with those you LOVE the most…as awful as it is…it could be your last one with them, no matter what age they are…Tomorrow I am off to California and hopefully I can pull this off being on the road…I will be announcing soon what I have been working on for the last 6 months…take care by allowing yourself to stitch a little bit each day…YOU deserve it!

    I love this time of year when you do your Christmas goodie list. Coming to California, hmm. As a So Cal girl I can hardly wait to see/hear what you’ve been working on for the last 6 months. Anxious!!

    OMG. I was so worried that there were no needful things this year. Truly my favorite PG thing. I’m sure it is a lot of work but greatly appreciated. Some of my favorite quilting tools came from needful things!

    I love the picture in this post, Lisa! How about a little wool applique pattern for it? You needed something else to do, didn’t you? : )

    Lisa,
    Thank you for offering this again. It was your “needful things” posts last year that began my journey of following your site. :). It is such a happy day for me when lisabongean.com shows up in my emails.
    Can’t wait to begin my “sew pincushion”. Thank you. Safe journeys.

    I always look for to this event…can’t wait. Please have safe travels and hope you and your family have a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year. This year will be hard but please know that each year will get better. My father passed away during the holidays seven years ago and it’s still hard but getting better every year. Love to all of you.

    Lisa- I know this is a bit off topic but I wasn’t sure where else to let you know. I have been so enjoying your anniversary sew along. I saw the button for part 6 and tried to click on it but nothing happened! I am wondering if it is my computer or the button. Could you check? Thanks so much. I just got a whole bunch of your homestead gatherings fabric yesterday and it is so pretty! Looking forward to using it soon. Thanks again for all of your amazing work for us. K-

    Fantastic!!! Looking forward to the 12 days! Looks like snow on your blog but prepare for a bit of Rain here in California!!! And it’s supposed to pour, guess the song is correct LOL! I’m excited to see the goodies in the 12 days!!! Safe travels!!! Hugs

  32. December 11, 2014 at 10:48 am

    Always look forward to the 12 days of Christmas. Could you put the snowman on the heading in a form we can print out to stitch?

    This will be my first year of 12 Needful Things and I look forward to seeing if I already have any. I’m going to go look at archives to see if I can find any from the other years. Yes, please, I’d also enjoy the snowman pattern.
    Safe travels – and of course you can pull all this off on the road!

    Hi Lisa, I’m looking forward to your Christmas countdown of needful things,, and trying to take your good advice to sew a little each day. My heart goes out to you this Christmas and each thereafter, I will be thinking of you and yours. Just in case I haven’t made it clear (smile), if you ever need a helping hand with anything just holler. One last comment… I had the BEST time visiting your store last weekend! Simply AMAZING!!! The girls working were so sweet, thoughtful, and attentive!! Fellow Quilters if you haven’t made a jaunt to Menasha Wisconsin, it’s time, and plan a minimum of a couple hours to relax and enjoy all the wonderful inspirational treasures!! Hugs, and Happy Holidays! Jakey

    Hi Lisa, I can’t remember how to get the coupon book for next year. It may be too late. : < Thanks, Jane

    I won a Blue Ribbon with your Geranium in Crock Kit and Red Ribbon with your Autumn Crow Mat at our Guild show in October in Franklin NC. Thank you for your beautiful kits! They were the first ribbons that I had ever won.
