Day 2…Needful Things…

12 Days of Christmas 2Day 2…T-shirts…Now I know that this is NOT technically something you NEED…but I ran out of new NEEDFUL THINGS so I came up with a costume for us to wear while we are happily stitching with a bunch of NEW really NEEDFUL THINGS… We have two different options for T-shirts…the first is: My Soul is Fed with my Needle & Thread…then the second..for all of you woolies: My Soul is Fed with my Wool, Needle & Thread…Then we have 2 size options…Ladies S-2XL for $20 and Mens XL-4XL…for $25…The SPECIAL  til the end of the year is buy 2 get $5 off!  This way you can order 1 of each option!  We will take the $5 off when we process your order, it will not happen in the cart…Shirts are printed double sided…with the Primitive Gatherings on the back…the wool ones have a sheep the other a spools of thread on the PG side…These shirts are super soft and are just wonderful…but they run a little small. So buy a size larger than you would normally wear.  The womens are what I call a slim fit.  If you know me…and about what size I am….I am wearing the ladies 2XL..I can wear the XL but then you see every lump and bump I may have at the time…The ladies come in Black, Lt. grey, purple and aqua…

Wool, Needle & Thread
Wool, Needle & Thread
Needle & Thread
Needle & Thread

The mens come in Red and Dk Grey…sorry…but Mens sizes don’t come in very many pretty colors…:(

Wool, Needle & Thread
Wool, Needle & Thread
Needle & Thread
Needle & Thread

Now another problem I may have with these is…I have no idea what you are going to like or IF you are going to like them at all and want to order them!!! or what size…so we have all sizes and colors in stock but not a ton of them….so if 50 of you all order the aqua M…I will have to re-order them…so I am hoping you like them…and will wait about 10 days for us to get the sizes needed if we run out and then get them shipped out to you…They are the same company that our last shirts were from…so if you have one…tell everyone how great they are!!!  Click HERE to order a T-shirt!

If you would like to WIN your T-shirt…comment with what size and color you would want if you were buying one!  If you happen to win and you have purchased one we will NOT send you two…yours will be FREE!!!

    I don’t own any kind of “quilting” tshirt. This will be something fun to wear. I ordered Large in aqua. Also a color out of my comfort zone!

    Good morning! I would love the grey “My soul ….” in a size M. I usually steer clear of these kind of T-shirts but would love one of yours! Thank you so much for this opportunity!!

  3. Colleen Avatar

    Wow, neat shirts. I love the gray one. The aqua is stunning, but I think the gray would be a go-to top. 🙂 size L. I am not able to order anything at this time, since I’ve been unemployed since November 10….being unemployed for the holidays sucks! This is the second time. I have to make a career change to avoid this situation. 2015 the year of changes! Anyhow,
    I love the Tee’s. 🙂

  4. Debby Avatar

    It’s hard to decide which color I like the best, but I think the gray with the Aqua printing would be my first choice. Probably a size XL if they run small and I like the one that includes wool. I just discovered your site during the Primitive Christmas hop and I really like it. Thanks for the chance to win and Merry Christmas!

    Disappointed the men don’t come in more colors, but the grey looks real nice and probably a 2XL would work for me. I like both designs as I stitch with cotton and also create using wool applique.

    I love the black “wool” shirt, 2 XL. Thank you so much for the chance to win!

    What do you mean? You ran out of needful things? T-shirts are needful (at least in the summer). I would want the one that might be some sort of red, in size medium.

    Grey with aqua, the wooly one, and I’m pushing it when I say size large….it will not fit yet but here’s the thing….I’ve changed my diet to be totally paleo and have lost 30+ pounds. I have added 15 hours a week at the gym (yoga, barre, Women on Weights, cycling) and have lost lots of inches. This is all in quest of good health as my bones are pathetic and I currently don’t actually have what you would call a “shape” (think amoeba at the moment!) but I am going to get there! So my optimist tells me, “somedayy you will walk into an AQS show and find Primitive Gatherings and say “here I am, sporting my lovely optimists’ shirt AND ITS TOO BIG I NEED A SMALL!”

    Hi Lisa, as the saying goes….go big or go home. I would like a men’s dark gray “wool” one in sixe 3x. If its too large I can alter it to fit cuz I know my way around a needle and thread;-)

    Oh, I think T-shirts are “needful.” I wear them all year around…under a flannel shirt in the winter and of course always in the summer with jeans. If you wear a 2 XL, the shirts must run a little small…If I am lucky enough to win, I would like one in a size 2XL and I love pastels but any color would be awesome. Thanks again.

  25. Jill Avatar

    These are great and I love the colors. I would order a purple, medium Needle and Thread one.

  26. treadlemusic Avatar

    A purple Ladies’ 1XL, please. This would make a perfect sleep shirt, I’m thinking!!!!

  27. Lynn Avatar

    I don’t have a quilting T-shirt and it would be wonderful to win one. I like the aqua in a size M. Hope I win.

  28. Cynthia Wood Avatar

    I would love the gray so when I wipe my chocolate fingers on it to protect the quilt I’m working on – it won’t show! Great idea. I would order a 2x ladies with just the needle and thread wording. I plan to order after Christmas, I hope you still have them.

    Hi, I would love the Needle & thread in XL, darker blue! If I don’t win, I’ll see whats left after the first of the year, and payday!

    My soul is fed with needle and thread in purple 2xl is my favorite. I would be happy with any color in a 2xl, would be awesome to wear this when teaching. Men’s would be ok too, not sure anyone would be able to tell the difference.

    Merry Christmas Lisa, and I loved the sizing comment. For years my husband Barry would buy me Tshirts in a small or med size, cause he’d look at them and think I was that size! I also would need the 2xl if I was gifted with one of these neat shirts. Barry now wears glasses and doesn’t buy me shirts in tiny sizes!
    I have loved your stories, thanks.

    Love the new shirts with the wool, needle, and thread saying. I would need a XL. I can’t decide if I like the grey or the aqua best. They both look great.

  72. aquiltinglady Avatar

    I love these, Lisa! I wanted an 2x, but you only had xl available, So that’s what I ordered. Oh well, I can drop some weight or my lumps and bumps will show… they come and go and then they come back again. Hey, I’m an emotional girl..It’s a roller coaster ride, like everything else in life. Thanks for everything! You are an amazing little lady! Xoxo

    These are my FAVORITE T-shirts!!! They are soooo soft and comfortable. I am always tickled when soneone asks me where I got them or if I work for PG. I get to smile and watch their face light up as we share stories about how much we love PG designs and products. I have a Ladies Large in Purple & Turquoise, and will definately order more, and still love my previous year’s T’s. I have to admit I didn’t even notice the lamb on the back of the wool one until this post, Lol. Jakey

    I have always loved the saying, but with wool added it truly is my anthem. If I get a little cranky I know it’s time to sit and stitch a bit. It truly soothes my soul. I would love a women’s 2X black or gray. I first began following you when you did needful things in 2013. I feel like you have shared so much with us and taught us about so much more than quilting or stitching. Merry Christmas to all of us!
