CA shop opening today!

Our store hours are 10-5 all week days…we will stay open on Wednesday til 6:30… Sat 10-4pm

We will post normal stores hours soon after we have time to throughly think them through…

We are super excited about the opening today but we ask for your patience while we all learn our new jobs and equipment.

The store looks good and you will see we have some empty shelves just waiting for our fabric shipments to come in!!! We are trying to build this shop to be one of the best CA has ever seen but it doesn’t happen in a couple of weeks.

We look forward to seeing many if you in our new location… Also keep in mind we are running these two stores independently, as they may carry different inventories… The CA store will have its own website. We will try to workout the gift card situation if you have purchased them from the WI location, but we ask that you not use them this week as we work through our new POS system..
We thank you for all the excitement, encouragement and support through this next adventure…
In pieces…
Lisa and the Primitive Gatherings Staff

From this to this in a week

    Congratulations on this new journey and stepping out and going for your dreams. I am looking forward to visiting the store and shopping. Had a great time stopping by your booth at Road2CA and shopping and saying hello. It was fun watching you do the needle punch. I have my kit and will be doing that soon.

    My eyes have already filled several bags. Maybe it is a good thing for me that your shop is not nearby, but I would LOVE to be there. Congrats and have a truly Grand Opening!

    Your shop is absolutely gorgeous and I love it!!!! I can’t wait to come and purchase some wool kits!!! You have done an outstanding job and I really love the look. So fresh and contemporary. I look forward to a visit within the next couple of weeks. Did you get in on the San Diego Cruisin’ Quilters run for 2015? Perhaps it isn’t too late – check into it – a great way to let all the California quilter’s know a “new shops in town”. Wishing you much success – take care and have a wonderful, safe and blessed day!!!!

    Will there be a website for the new store? Can’t wait to get over there. We are thinking of picking up a ‘get away’ place near Murrieta since I drive down for a couple of days every month.
