Day 4 Needlful Things…

12-days-of-xmas-ornaments-4

DAY 4- HEAVY DUTY-DOUBLE SIDED- SELF HEALING CUTTING MAT

Luke surprised us and had these mats made for our warehouse and shops and a few to sell…so we saved them for this event…we go through a lot of cutting mats…so this is our answer…a durable…double sided mat…If you are cutting dark fabrics you can cut on the yellow side.   You can turn it over and cut on the grey if you are cutting lights…I have no problem cutting both on either side…The mats are super thick…the mats are 24″ x36″ edge to edge.  The grid starts 1/2″ in and measure to 35″.  We also love that they have our logo on them!!!  If you are looking for a great mat…these are nice deal.  We only have 60 of them.  So when they are gone  they are gone…I don’t know if we will redo them as we would have to order like 1000 to make it worth it.
cutting-mat-1 cutting-mat-2 cutting-mat-3I have had mine since summer in my home studio and I just love them… CUTTING MATS

Since we have limited supply of these mats we are only going to give away one to one lucky quilter!!!  Tell me what you want from Santa…

    Love the new mat! Nice that it’s two colors and double sided. Best yet, while sewing/cutting, it would remind me of my favoprite quilt shop!

    What I want is just feeling the joy of giving some of my prized quilts as gifts to my brother, sister, and a few very dear friends. My children and grandchildren already have several.

    Just want to spend time my husband, our children and our grandson. That’s the best gift!

  12. December 21, 2016 at 3:43 pm

    I would really love for Santa to bring a sit down long arm machine for me, but that is truly pie in the sky dreamin’. I will really enjoy and be truly thankful for Christmas morning with some grandkids and Christmas dinner with my 92 yr old father

    I hope Santa brings me a self healing cutting mat! My husband and I are in the process of creating my sewing room is n our basement (sweet guy even gave up a section of his workshop for me) and the Matt old be a great first accessory.

    Oh my gosh, I need a new cutting mat so bad and LOVE that this one says Primitive Gatherings on it. Wish I could get myself this for Christmas. Luke did a great job designing these!!!

    Hi Lisa: What do I want from Santa? I love quilty things, notion, fabric and especially friends to sew and talk quilts. What I would really want is for all people to have a hobby (for me it is quilting) a life skill or job that they truly enjoy and can give back to others. I have been so blessed by quilting, the quilting world and blogs that unite us worldwide.

    This sure would look nice under my tree…that’s if I HAD a tree! LOL. I’m asking Santa for healing for friends that are going through serious health problems & the loss of loved ones in the past year. I still believe in Santa & the magic of Christmas.

    My Christmas Wish is for a Primitive Gatherings cutting mat. I have already destroyed one side off my Olfa green mat and the second side, which has no lines, is in pretty bad shape now too.

  21. 21 Karen H
    December 21, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    The best gift in the world is having family and friends around for the holidays and wishing everyone you love good health throughout the upcoming year !!!

    All I want for Christmas is that my daughter in law is able to get pregnant in the new year. They have been trying for close to four years. They had mischarge almost 18 months ago. They have have seen a specialist and appears they should be able to get pregnant. They have a daughter who will be 5 in Feb. A new baby would be the best gift our families could receive. Merry Christmas

    There is really nothing I would like better for Christmas than for my sister to regain her heath and begin to heal from long term depression. On a material level, I have so many blessings but there is always room for MORE! LOL, Merry Christmas Lisa, to you and all of your loved ones, your employees, your fans and my fellow posters.

  27. 27 Ellen R
    December 21, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    A Lexus..an expensive long arm machine..but mostly a stop to the violence we are seeing daily in the news and peace for those directly impacted by it. Oh and I would love to have some sheep to have my own wool supply! But mostly world peace.

  28. 28 Anne thate
    December 21, 2016 at 4:00 pm

    I would love one of those;)
    They look extremely sturdy.

  29. December 21, 2016 at 4:01 pm

    I would love it if Santa could bring me an elf to finish all my UFO’s. Realistically, a nice set of wireless headphone to wear while working on the long arm would be nice too!

  30. 30 Bonni Brooks
    December 21, 2016 at 4:04 pm

    I would love to have a large desk made especially for quilting so that I have room for my quilt to spread out and not hang over. Currently I have to use the dining table (our one and only) when I have a bigger quilt to work on.

  31. 31 Sheila
    December 21, 2016 at 4:04 pm

    Would love to win a new mat since the one I have is cracked and the new one I bought I left on top of my car and drove away. Who knows where that one went, ha ha. Merry Christmas!

    For Christmas I want to share the day with my family. We moved recently to be closer so this year will be special. I sure could use a new cutting mat…. spent the past year packing and unpacking so I’m ready to spend the winter doing some serious quilting in my new home. Merry Christmas

  37. 37 Kristy
    December 21, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    What I really want I don’t think I can get. My daughter is expecting her third baby, and they have two darling boys so far. I would love to get the gift of knowing what this baby is, so I would know whether to make a “boy” or “girl” baby quilt. The Drs. used to do the ultrasound at 20 weeks and we could find out the gender, but now the Drs. wait until week 22-24 to do that ultrasound where gender is revealed. Apparently not too many obstetricians are quilters, because they would understand the quilter’s need to know ASAP….so many quilty baby gifts to make!!! Lisa, you have the best fabrics for the boys quilts especially!!

  38. December 21, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    Santa has already been good to me. I have a new Juki TL-2200QVP Mini and a new Bernina 720. So Santa just needs to make sure my family is here to make things for. 🙂

    Your cutting mat looks awesome–industrial strength! Love it and need it! I would like a new sewing machine table and comfortable chair from Santa.

    December 21, 2016 at 4:12 pm

    This year, after ALOT of years, I went to see Santa. We sat and chatted for a long time. Made me remember the magic of Christmas. I’m happy to have taken a bunch of pictures. One is on my fridge now. He asked me what I wanted for Christmas. I told him I have everything I want and more. All I wanted was to visit. Merry Christmas!🎅P.S. love the two color mat. Great idea!

  41. December 21, 2016 at 4:14 pm

    LoL. I would like the mat from Primitive Gatherings. Kidding aside, it looks wonderful.

    Merry Christmas everyone ‼️

    The best gift would be for my 18 year old daughter to manage her type 1diabetes better. That is my Greatest wish. She will have to come to it on her own, though.

  43. 43 Natalie Rogers
    December 21, 2016 at 4:16 pm

    I already had my Christmas wish come true! My daughter from NYC has made it down to Florida to visit with us this Christmas! Fabulous! Her brother is in Kyoto, Japan with his family, and her sister lives in Sweden with her family, so we are very excited to have our younger daughter here for the holidays! Merry Christmas!

    For Christmas I want time to freeze! My only child, a son is graduating high school this year and I’m dreading the fact that he’s grown up so quickly. I’m sad for him to go away to college but, happy for his new journey in life.
    Merry Christmas!

    From Santa I would love an overstuffed stocking with all kinds of stuff (e.g. socks, toothbrush, quilting gadgets and of course cheap waxy foil wrapped Christmas chocolates!!).

  57. 57 Cynthia Wood
    December 21, 2016 at 4:35 pm

    I have asked Santa for was a set of shelves to store my overload of quilting books.

    What I want from santa is the people of this country to please stop, think, we are a country made up many different cultures, please be respectful of each other. For heaven sake, this country needs to come together for the sake of peace! We are the greatest country in the world, let’s all work together!
    Saying that, the mats are sweet, love the yellow side, I just finished a quilt for my grandson that had a lot of black, now that would have been handy to have, next in line is an Armish quilt, ( black! )
    Thank you for your time
    Peace to all

    It may sound cliche but I would like to see peace in the world, but I will settle for more time to quilt uninterrupted.

    Merry Christmas to everyone.

    December 21, 2016 at 4:49 pm

    Santa, I want world peace and if you can’t do the whole world please start with America. Quilting related? Lisa, tell Santa I would love to do a stitch and sew afternoon with you to fine tune my skills (or lack thereof). Merry Christmas and health and happiness to all.

    All I want for Christmas is to have my family all together. We are praying for a healthy grandchild (our fourth) to be born next week!!

    I’m wishing for a white Christmas, so my extended family can enjoy their vacation at my home in Logan, Utah (they’re traveling from central Illinois). First Christmas gathering here since my husband and I moved to Utah 29 years ago! We plan to ski, snowshoe, hike, play games, and share many laughs while making memories for a lifetime–all 19 of us! Happy Holidays to you and yours.

  74. 74 Deborah K
    December 21, 2016 at 4:59 pm

    I would love this mat….Mine is rather tattered! Honestly, I’d love to have a new machine. My Viking is rather aged, and I’m having trouble with the lights. Frustrating when I’m trying to sew in the dark and it gets dark before 5 here now.

  75. 75 birdlooker
    December 21, 2016 at 5:00 pm

    I didn’t know there was such a thing as this cutting mat. Now I know what I want Santa to bring me. I’ve noticed lately that I’m really having trouble seeing the edge when I cut dark fabrics. My eyes aren’t what they used to be. This mat would be perfect for me. Santa, can you hear me?

  76. 76 Sandra Weimer
    December 21, 2016 at 5:01 pm

    Alll I want is for for my family to be together. One is in Colorado and one in Oregon. I miss them.

    What do I want from Santa? Primitive gatherings gift cards of course, and a boyfriend who cooks and has a truck with a plow 😉

  83. 83 Marie Eddins
    December 21, 2016 at 5:13 pm

    I asked my husband, er Santa, for a glass display cabinet or wooden ladder for my quilts. That would be so cool!
    Thanks!

    December 21, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    Lovely mat! I want a huge block of uninterrupted time to quilt a queen sized quilt for us. Like so many quilters, I put aside quilts for ME in order to make them for other family members, so this one has been hanging around waiting to be quilted for quite a while now. That’s all I want from Santa, TIME to quilt!

  85. 85 Joan Richards
    December 21, 2016 at 5:14 pm

    I am hoping that Santa will bring some much deserved and restorative quilting time after Christmas before I go back to work.

  86. 86 Brenda Jeffers
    December 21, 2016 at 5:15 pm

    What i want from Santa is one of your heavy-duty cutting mats! I did not even know they were available, and this truly is a “needful thing” on my list.

  94. 94 Sandy G.
    December 21, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    What a great idea for a cutting mat. I would like a new house with a big quilting studio, so I could get organized and then maybe finish some of my quilting projects.

  95. 95 Sally Parrish
    December 21, 2016 at 5:37 pm

    Well if Santa could unite these United States, I would be forever grateful. But realistically, the squeal from my grandson when he realized he gets an IFLY coupon, and all the hugs that will follow will be perfect.
    Thanks for all the wonderful projects and inspiration, Merry Christmas.

    I wanted a new comfy chair to put in my tv room – the room that I cross stitch and do hand sewing in. So I was able to go pick one out and it was delivered Tuesday! I’m so busy I won’t be able to enjoy it until the New Year but boy – will I enjoy it then! I’d love to win the mat – mine is pathetic!!

  101. December 21, 2016 at 5:54 pm

    The best gift I could receive this year is for both of my kids to find someone with whom to spend their lives.

    What I have asked Santa for is another safe year for my son, he is a Police Officer and in the National Guard. What would be nice is one of these mats, it is a great size and I like that it is heavy duty.

    Wow, what a wonderful cutting mat. I left mine in the car after a class and it’s kinda of wonky now. What I would love from Santa, the first thing is I got already, my son home from college and getting to share time with him. the 2nd thing would be the health of my family who’ve had a rough year and more time in the day to work on projects. Merry Christmas Lisa to you and your family.

    What I really want for Christmas, is for my NC daughter to be able to come up & we could have some days of just sewing & quilting together!! Miss her terribly…

    It’s been a tough year for my family. If Santa could bring that feeling of joy and wonder that young children have about the holidays to each family member, I sure would like that.

    I really like the two colors in one mat – should work with everything! I would ask Santa for more time in the quilt zone, that spot where you really are able to put fabric together and the other worries of the day fade away. Happy Holidays

    On Christmas Day my daughter is leaving in a uhaul to move to Wisconsin… So I guess I want the strength to not be a whimpy mess. I am looking forward to visiting but not until summer. It really is funny since her father and I both grew up in Wisconsin. My recipe to share is rocky road…take two packages of the chocolate disc and melt them…. to that add 1 cup peanut butter and stir to combine then add peanuts, Rice Krispies and marshmallows no set amount just how many you like. Pour into a greased baking pan. after it sets cut and enjoy. People go crazy for that stuff.

    Your cutting mats look great! Actually i could use a new mat ;-D Of course I’d love more time with my kids and family as well as I’d love to have Santa bring me a rotating cutting mat. I have been a good girl, hehe

    All I really want for Christmas is for my sons to have more than an overnight available to come for Christmas. But I know I’m lucky they want to come at all, and that they have jobs (in other states) so work keeps them busy through Friday. Oh well, I’ll wish for two days together next year!

    I’ve tried different mats and so far the Olfa mat has been the best for me. I would love to try yours! I don’t have any wants for Christmas except for good health for my family, friends and myself. Merry Chr!istmas Lisa and thanks for all your encouragement and good tips.

    Nothing special on my list from Santa. I did buy my gift, a lovely necklace that I, no I mean Santa, could not resist. I also want to spend some time with our son who is visiting for the holiday. Love the colors of the mat.

    I always have a hard time cutting out dark colored fabric on my green mat and I tend to use a lot of dark fabrics. A nice yellow on one side would be perfect!
    What I truly want for Christmas is for my family to stay healthy, stay together and be happy…little fabric wouldn’t hurt ;-).

    I love having family time. This year in laws are around. What a blessing. I would love these mats. They look great.

  148. December 21, 2016 at 8:10 pm

    Every year when my family ask me what I would like for Christmas I never know what to say. The same goes when I ask them! .so this year I came up with a plan! I asked everyone to buy fun happy gifts up to the value of £5 per person…there are 6 of us altogether! It’s been a lot of fun choosing everyone’s gift trying to stick to the amount! When I have spoken to other family members they agree it’s been a lot of fun buying gifts this year! So this year all I wish for is smiles and laughter!!

  149. 149 Janan

    December 21, 2016 at 8:21 pm

    Those mats are perfect for cutting all shades of fabric! Our entire family will be together…kids, grandkids and granddogs plus we are all looking forward to another little one in June! Making memories with family is what’s best about Christmas.

    Santa, all I want for Christmas is a new double sided cutting mat. Mine are getting raggedy and are old. This would be such a nice addition to my future quilt room, or to the current table I use. This gift, dear Santa would really help me get more quilts cut and finished! Thank you so much!

    December 21, 2016 at 9:49 pm

    What I really want from Santa is a nice new thick cutting mat! My big mat is about 25 years old, and it is in very sad 🙁 shape! My blades won’t stay sharp, even when they’re new. I haven’t been able to find a thick mat to replace it, so I just keep struggling along with it. I would love to find one of these under my tree for Christmas. Thanks for the chance to win!

    December 21, 2016 at 10:14 pm

    What a special treat! The mat looks fantastic! My Dad had emergency surgery this morning and thankfully, it went well. I have the flu and need Santa to get me batter so I can be with family who are far away in Texas.

    Merry Christmas and I hope you are feeling better! Your cookies looked delicious. Way to christen those new ovens!

  182. December 21, 2016 at 10:22 pm

    My request from Santa is a Juki TL2010Q. I asked for it last year but guess he decided medical bills were more important. It will more than likely be the same this year but hoping for a little Christmas magic and miracle. Love the idea of having different colors on each side of the cutting board. Looks like it would make cutting dark fabrics so easy.

    What a lovely cutting mat! As for me I would LOVE 💜to receive from Santa ☃️ A couple weeks vacation at Primitive Gatherings WI so I could learn ✂️even more from you Lisa, and to meet all of the wonderful staff I’ve interacted with over the years, and so I could ride a Harley 🛵in WI too

  197. December 21, 2016 at 11:21 pm

    I asked Santa for a rug hooking frame, a turkey pattern on linen, and wool strips for a hooked rug! Fingers crossed I’ll get my wish!

    December 21, 2016 at 11:50 pm

    I would like Santa to bring me a class with you and a trip to see your shop. I’ve followed you online for years and seen you at shows but I think it would be fun to take a class from you. The mat looks awesome mines getting a bit worn so a new one would be nice; fingers crossed!

  201. 203 Marsha Jean

    What can Santa bring me? Your new mat of course! My old one has “self healed” itself to death!

    These mats look fantastic. I just want a nice quiet Christmas at home with my husband.

    My mat just literally broke in half so I need this one! Santa has already granted my wish to have ALL of my kids home this Christmas. It’s been 4 long years since this has happened. I have had kids on missions for our church and they overlapped each other so this Christmas will be special and I won’t need anything else! Well, the mat would be nice! Haha. Merry Christmas to you Lisa and all of your wonderful employees at PG!

    All I want from Santa for Christmas this year is good health and harmony in the family.

    Would love to get rid of my warped mats. They keep hanging around.
    Double sided is very unique, will serve us well. Happy holidays!

    What I’d like most is for my family to have peace and healing from the passing of my Dad last week. We wish we could have had one more Christmas with him.

    Funy thing is I need a new mat. I’ve bought one not to long ago and since I don’t like the green ones that much (not my favorite color) I bought a pink one from the same brand but it’s not so good.

    a quiet life please and if that’s too much to ask for, a new cutting mat pretty please.

    I’ve never really thought about what Santa can bring me. I’m more of a giver than a receiver. I would wish for health and happiness for those I hold dear and peace in the world. A new cutting board would be nice though, especially a double sided one. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

    The mats are beautiful! I’ll have to add that to my Christmas list along with more time to sew! Merry Christmas!

  213. December 22, 2016 at 5:05 am

    My wish for Christmas is my family was coming for Christmas. I need a new cutting mat. Happy Holidays.

    Love the idea of two sided mat. What i really want for Christmas is for my husband of 39 years to be pain free . it would be nice for him to feel good again. I know we can’t erase the years but it would be nice to see him happy again.

  215. December 22, 2016 at 5:46 am

    I want Santa to buy me built-in cabinets for my new quilting space in the basement.

  216. December 22, 2016 at 5:50 am

    I want my desk and shelves that have been “temporarily out of stock!”

    I would like a new sewing table/cabinet. Have a very Merry Christmas Lisa.

    I hope Santa brings me a new light box, the flat kind with LED lights. Lots of my guild friends and several of our latest guild instructors have one and I’ve decided that I need one too!

    All I want for Christmas is a happy healthy time for family and friends. Merry Christmas!

  220. December 22, 2016 at 6:57 am

    For Christmas I would love to get a surprise visit from the boys and spouses. I’ll settle for them to have a wonderful time celebrating with people they love.

  221. December 22, 2016 at 7:00 am

    I would love a surprise visit from our boys and spouses for Christmas. Since they live about 2000miles away I’ll settle for them to have a wonderful Christmas with people they love. Thank goodness for Skype

    My husband of 51 years and I really don’t need anything except for continued good health. Having our family here for a few days will be an extra special treat! Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to you, Lisa, and to all who follow this blog!

  224. December 22, 2016 at 7:45 am

    Our life is so full of blessings…we have full-time employment for the first time in many years and our family is comfortable. Yay! The mat would be a much-appreciated want, though.

    Santa can’t bring these wishes but I would hope for good health and success for my family. Giving to others brings so much more joy!

    I love the colors of this mat, not to mention it has the quilt shop logo on it. My sewing room is yellow and this mat would just make such a sunshine pop in the room. I would love to have this. I use my mats so much and clean them to extend their use. A good quality cutting mat does make a difference when making quilts.

    I would love for Santa to bring me a pair of warm winter boots, not foo foo girly fashion boots!

    I’d love to win the cutting mat, it looks like a nice one.

    I don’t really want or need anything from Santa. I just love having all my children with me on Christmas along with my only grand daughter who is closing in on 2 yrs old. That to me is what Christmas is about, and cookies!🎄🎄

  229. 232 Mary D.

    What a wonderful mat! I would like Santa to bring me a bouquet of fresh flowers. My family never gets me flowers despite plenty of hints.

    Santa is a giver and I’ve always enjoyed being like Santa, no matter what I’m giving – of my time or of my talents. Who needs more than that. 🙂

    Love the mat and the fact that it is reversible! I am waiting for my son to come home from a deployment so we can celebrate Christmas as a family in January.

    Welllll…I need a new iron. I can’t decide what to get. I have seen the Reliant irons but love the pressing system you use. I love the Juki you use. I am trying to figure out how to explain to Santa I need another machine…I will get there. It’s the approach. I really haven’t ASKED for anything yet…so. after 40 years of marriage..it’s not a biggy. If I ask him for a Juki…I think it may appear!!!!

    I would love a new storage cabinet for in my sewing room so all my fabrics can be out of bins….

    From Santa, Good Health and safe travel for my family. I don’t need a thing. But a new cutting mat is always nice! Thanks for the Needful Thing giveaway!

    I love this mat- it’s even cooler with your logo on it. Honestly, I have everything I need and more. Saying thanks and Merry Christmas to you.

    The only thing I want for Christmas is good health for my family and myself, at my age I pretty well buy whatever I want, so I have no wants or needs. Merry Christmas to you and yours Lisa, thanks again for always giving!

    The only thing I would want for Christmas is for there to be Peace and Love all over our world.

    I would REALLY love to win this mat! I have cataracts so seeing the mat is challenging for me at this time. I love the idea that you can flip it! Two mats for the price of one! I don’t mean to beg, but I would REALLY love this mat if I won it! Wishing you and yours a wonderful and safe holiday season!!

    I would love a quilting retreat weekend from Santa…even if its just me and its at my house. I just want a few days of quilting w/o life’s other responsibilities.

  247. 250 Tanya Pearson
    December 22, 2016 at 3:53 pm

    I definitely need a new cutting mat, Santa. Double sided to boot. Love it! My girls are coming home for Christmas so I am very happy about being us being together.

    I would like a new Labrador puppy. Mine is getting older and I don’t want my other dog to be left alone when the time comes for the old dog. I love the two colors on the mat, as sometimes I have trouble with the green mats. Merry Christmas.r

  249. 252 Dee Johnson
    December 22, 2016 at 3:59 pm

    Of course I would love this mat but would REALLY love my daughter to be able to get pregnate, we are now working with a fertility specialist so keep her in our prayers.

    I love those mats with your name on them. Merry Christmas! I would like someone to come in and organize my sewing space so I could sew more.

    I would love new rulers and cutting mats to start out this new year of fun projects to complete!

    December 22, 2016 at 7:29 pm

    Merry Christmas Lisa! I am curious what you would like for Christmas? Myself, honestly I would love a day to just sew with No cooking (I’m on my 10th batch of cookies with 3 to go) and No dishes. I love your matts. They are perfect with the two colors back to back.

    • December 22, 2016 at 9:57 pm

      Well Cathy…since you asked…I really didn’t have anything that I wanted…but Nick insisted on buying me a “GO PRO” its a video camera…i can where it around my neck for stitching…and we can video a lot of stuff…but…I will have to take some time to “learn” it all…something I don’t look forward too! I love technology…but don’t like figuring stuff out..

    I always love a simple Christmas with family with all of our traditions… and the one thing Santa can always bring is anything quilting related! A Primitive Gatherings label is a good sign it is exactly the right thing! 😉

  254. December 23, 2016 at 9:44 am

    The cutting mats look awesome! I would say that I’d like one of these from Santa though my first wish would be for health and safe travels for families trying to come together for Christmas. I hope it’s a joyful one for you and your family there!
