Are you ready for some quilty fun!!!!

12 Days of Xmas Ornaments 12PLEASE READ THROUGHLY….LOTS OF INFO

Well here we go again…This is the fourth 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…

I know the way we shop has changed…we now have Amazon.com which is amazing…however, it is going to put a lot of business, OUT OF BUSINESS….the only way a shop like ours survives is because we are creative and produce some of our own products….some of the items on the 12 days you may find a few dollars cheeper on Amazon…we cannot compete with 57% off..thats less than what we pay for most of these items.  We HOPE you can respect the time we put into these kind of promotions, information and that you will reward US with your shopping dollars, instead of Amazon… A couple things to keep in mind…you may win your item as we give away these items with the promotion!!! We have FREE shipping with $100 order and $5.99 for under 100$ and under $10 is $3.99.  So shipping shouldn’t be an issue…

When you buy from Primitive Gatherings you are supporting a Family business that is a REAL quilt shop…we make all the quilts we offer as kits…You can road trip to WI or CA and walk in our doors which are full of inspiration!!! We can help you when you call and don’t understand the directions…in 2016 we will have a full time Customer service person taking care of just those things…we are committed to bringing you the best shopping and quilting experience possible.  Remember to support those little business that you cannot live without!!!

Now back to our event…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 2015. 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 HOLD.  We will wait until then end to ship all your items…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 HOLD 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…I also want to thank my CA customers who have supported the Shop in Murrieta…many thought I was crazy to open a brick and mortar store in today’s world…you proved them wrong, you WILL come in to the quilt shop!!!  While it isn’t easy, the customers and new employees make it all worth the trouble for me running across the country almost every month!  Now we have to keep spreading the word and continue to be committed to each other, that is what matters in life…

All orders will be shipped from the WI location.  The CA location will be in-store only..

Hope you enjoy the next 12 days as well as your own countdown to Christmas traditions!

The countdown start tomorrow 8am CST.

    I felt so privileged to take a wool mat class this summer with you as the teacher. Cousins is a great quilt shop in Michigan and it was a blast staying at the farmhouse and attending your trunk show. I love love love Primitive Gatherings and the success of the shop is because of all your hard work and brilliant ideas. When I read your blog and articles like the 12 days of Christmas, your enthusiasm and excitement are very evident. You deserve a big hug and I personally would like to wish you the merriest Christmas and bless you from the bottom of my heart. You go, girl…….
