Merry Christmas!!!

securedownload-4Has Santa been extra nice to you?  If you find your name on this list please email us with your mailing address AND all info to: primitivegatheringsquiltshop@yahoo.com   PLEASE make sure this is YOUR comment.  I know most of these have last names…some do not…we can double check comments with email address if needed:

Please allow about 10 business days as some of these items may have to be ordered due to the volume of sales…we have no way of knowing how many we are going to sell and some of these numbers are more than the distributors carry at one time.  The winners have been randomly selected and I have not payed any attention to their content…I asked several people for numbers and then picked the corresponding comments with that number…Some I added more prizes too and did it in a group…like the 1st three comments of the day…Some of you are pretty clever and I would have loved to have picked my favorites but I don’t think it is quite as fair.

Also…you have until Dec. 31 to order any of the items on the 12 Days of NEEDFUL THINGS…at their special prices.

I usually buy the fat quarter or fat eighth bundles when I buy pretty cuts. I just started quilting about 3 years ago & that is how I built my stash. Now I’m getting into woolies & need to build a wool stash 🙂

I just finished making an adorable runner for my antique vanity. I used 2″ pre-cuts from Floral Gatherings in a checkerboard pattern.

Oh so much to say…….1st. Love the 12 days of Christmas picture. Would love to stitch it. 2. You know I love my precuts- needleminders out of the mini charms; “Paul Bunyon” quilt out of the jelly rolls (did the jelly roll race quilt and got carried away) and foremost they make such an great easier way to make anything! off to order…………….

Are we supposed to make stuff out of precuts? I thought they were to be used on our shelves to look cute!
I have to admit that I love using charms and your method to make 9 patches from the Nine Patch Gatherings book.

My first experience with pre-cuts occurred several years ago. I was enroute to an annual retreat with my sister & I stopped at Merry’s Stitchins (just to say “HI”) since my car was already packed with more projects than I could possibly finish in a weekend! Of course I wasn’t in the store very long before Merry had convinced me that I would ‘hate’ myself if I didn’t buy her twister quilt kit. She explained that I would have to mark my ruler for the special cuts (before the templates were introduced). I got to the retreat, ate dinner & had the quilt top DONE before bed time!!!!

Next day, several of the ladies at the retreat were headed to the LQS to buy a charm pack!! I think we had 10 ‘little twister’ quilts by end of that retreat.

Since that weekend, I’ve become a huge fan of precuts!! Have made several mini quilts with the little packets you sell in your booth at AQS shows.

DAY 10 

WINNER-WONDER CLIPS

I really look forward to your needful blog…it gives me insight on products that I may not have noticed. Thank you for bringing these to my attention…just might need to buy some!

DAY 9 WINNER STEAM-A-SEAM-2

Hi Lisa! I want to thank you so much for doing Needful Things for us. This is my first year participating and I’ve been following your blog most of the year. I think its awesome how much you do to serve your customers, to anticipate our needs and to try and keep things as simple and unstressful as possible for us. Truly, its customer service at its finest and something many of us don’t see much of anymore. Just wanted you to know that we see all the efforts you make to go the extra mile for us and I want to personally thank you so much!! I know this has been a hard year for you and want you to know that you and your family are in our prayers.

Regarding the SAS2, I have had a chance to try the new version and think its waaaayyyyy better than the old (and yes, I did get it from your shop! : ) Appreciate all the helpful hints and tips about using STEAM with our wool applique! S2S2 is working just super for me and I’m not having any issues needling through it. Best thing is it leaves my applique piece nice, flexible and natural feeling . . . not a hint of stiffness like some other products I have used in the past.

Ok, I’m off to the store to buy some more! Best wishes on the California project. Don’t work too hard . . . remember to stop and smell the roses and those awesome sea breezes!

DAY 8 WINNER-STRIPOLOGY RULER

THER WILL BE A 2ND WINNER TO THIS ONE AS WELL…SOMEONE WHO PURCHASED IT WILL GET IT FREE, BUT I HAVE NOT BEEN TRAINED ON OUR NEW WEBSITE TO SEE WHO BOUGHT WHAT AND WHAT IS BEING SOLD…SO I WILL GET WITH SOME WHO CAN AND WE WILL POST THIS WINNER ASAP…SORRY…

DAY 7 WINNER-NUMBERED PINS

I enjoy buying kid gifts and donating to toys for tots. I also adopt a child from our local county head start program and fill their wish list. Gives me a great feeling knowing I helped to make a child’s Christmas happy. This year I even made doll clothes for a doll I bought on clearance in July for the Head start program. On Christmas Day I try to imagine the joy of the children who are receiving the gifts who wouldn’t have otherwise received them. By the what, congrats on becoming a grandma. There is nothing like it!

 

DAY 6 WINNER- FINGER STILETTO

Robbi Buckles
December 19, 2014 at 6:08 am
Mine are already sent! In the past, I sent them out the day after Thanksgiving… That was before I got bit by the quilting bug! Now I am lucky to get them out before the big day!

DAY 5 WINNER-BEAM N READ

If I’m not thinking of quilting things, I’d choose to be celebrating the holidays with my family back east. Quilting wise – and this is waving a magic wand – I’d have an assistant who would take my ideas and then organize all the fabrics and supplies I’d need for each project in one place so all I’d have to do was cut, sew, and quilt. If she/he wanted to cook, that would be fine, too. Thanks for asking. It’s always fun to imagine and dream.

DAY 4-WINNERS-TWEEZERS…I PICKED 3…THE FIRST THREE OF THE DAY…EARLY BIRD GETS THE WORMS…

Ha! Am I the first to comment? Designer number 1: You! of course!! My daughter and I are making a beautiful winterquilt right now with your snowman gatherings line. She is only 12, but she’s made some lovely stitchery;s for the quilt. I was just ordering new fabric, when this post came online 😉
I pay attention to designers; it’s always great what you all come up with!!
We also like Joanna Figuarera (fig tree quilts); australian designers like Susan Smith and many more.
Love your ‘ugly ornament’ LOL

My 3 favorite designers– heck ya I pay attention! How else would I find more from them? :). You! Since my Backyard Gathering quilt I’ve been an avid fan. Missie Carpenter, another one doing fun stuff with wool. And Karen K. Stone. I love paper piecing so, Karen is a favorite. Over the years I have ( fallen in love) with many…. It is hard to only name 3 . right off the top of my head I can probably add at least a dozen more to the list of Favorites. But, I do check You & Missie first when looking for inspiration and a new project.
Those tweezers would definitely be handy!

Yes, I definitely pay attention to designers. You would be on the top of the list. There isn’t anything I don’t like! Because I love repros, I would put Judie Rothermel on the list, along with patterns by Carol Hopkins. Love many of the Australian designers. Currently have Mrs. Billings Coverlet as a WIP. There are so many talented designers today, but I always go back to my favorites.

DAY 3 BOBBIN HOLDERS…ANOTHER THREE IN A ROW..

I learned to sew at an early age from my mother on her Singer Featherweight, which she recently gave to me. I made my first quilt when I was pregnant 36 years ago. It was a Lamoyne Star, cut out with templates and scissors from scraps. What a project for a first time. There were practically no long arm quilters at that time. I tried to hand quilt it but thought I would never finish, so my wonderful mother-in-law had quilted it for me. I am now on my 3rd Bernina and love the bobbin holder! I will be ordering it!

I have asked the question before, if UFO’s of other people have to be added to my UFO list if I inherited them…the answer has always been a resounding YES. I have about 6 or 7 UFO’s from my Great Grandmother, Grandmother and Mother that I have been developing my sewing skills to feel confident to finish. I have had them appraised, and all agree that my foremothers were skilled sewers, and I have sewed with them, from the time I was about 4. I have collected the fabrics and done the design work and will begin to finish them in the new year. Yes, it is an inherited disease!

Lol, I missed this post, now the PS from today makes sense to me. I was taught to hand sew by my Grandmother and my Mother at a young age. My garndmother quilted in a quilting bee thru church. My Mother used to make us clothes. I was fascinated with it all, especially the creativity. I knew by 12 that it was part of me. You are not alone, it is my passion too. I love it. Thank you for making it so much more fun!!!

DAY 2-T-SHIRT…GOTTA LOVE A RULER BREAKER…

Beth Esser
December 23, 2014 at 8:03 am
My soul is fed with my needle and thread! Purple , like you, ladies 2xl! Thanks Lisa! I’m sneaking this comment in at work so gotta run!

DAY 1…JUKI…AS OF RIGHT NOW WE CAN’T PICK A WINNER…BUT IN THE FIRST FULL WEEK OF 2015 THERE WILL BE A POST IF WE SELL 50 MACHINES! IF WE GET CLOSE I’LL LET IT SLIDE…SO HOPEFULLY ONE OF YOU WHO ORDERS A MACHINE WILL GET IT FREE!!

Nick and I are going on a much needed vacation right after Christmas and through the New Year…We will start 2015 on a much different note than 2014 and have faith that it will be an awesome year!  We wish YOU the the best for 2015 as well, and THANK all of YOU for being supportive, wonderful customers who appreciate all of our hard work.

My Staff also appreciates your continued support of our little piece of the quilting world.  They work very hard to get your quilting NEEDS dyed, patterned, cut, assembled, organized, packaged and shipped into your creative hands…with the addition of the California store will probably employ more than 40 people by the end of 2015, most being full time with benefits like health insurance and IRAs…You are all apart of making this possible for us and them and we truly care about our products and our service to you our customers…again…many blessing to you also for 2015!

Lisa, Nick & the entire Staff at Primitive Gatherings

    merry belated Christmas. Hope you have a wonderful and well deserved vacation. I am so excited about my new JUKI I bought myself for Christmas on your 12 days of Christmas. I have a machine I purchased a few years ago different brand there are things it doesn’t do. I grew up sewing on an old Singer sewing machine of my mother’s and it only did a straight stitch and I made all my school clothes and formals on that machine from age 12 on. I am really looking forward to my new machine. I am really excited about the new store. See you all at the road 2 CA show. This is going to be a good year.
