Wow…I want to THANK all of you who made the 2016 Needful Things a huge success…I want to tell you that we are just 2 machine sales away from our goal of selling 50!!! So one lucky Quilter will be getting theirs FREE this year again even if we don’t make the 50 its close enough for me!!! I’m so blessed that you all love what we do and Primitive Gatherings and that you spend your hard earned dollars at our store…Please know that I am very Thankful for this and very pleased at your response to our Primitive Christmas Event and the 12 Days of Needful Things…It’s truly Amazing!!! So again…Thank You, Thank You…Thank you ALL!

I also want to give you a gentle reminder that today and tomorrow are the last days to purchase these great NEEDFUL Things…I don’t want you to miss out if you were busy…busy…busy…Had to laugh at my little reminder I got today…from the shop…always thinking ahead…12 DAYS OF NEEDFULTHINGS…img_9323

    My favorite photo? Either the beautiful bannister or the lovely bedroom. Could it be the puppy enhances the shots?! Excited to hear who wins the Juki…you know I’m hoping me! Win or not, I’m excited to receive it, I’ve waited a long, long time to gift myself at Christmas time…I’m feeling blessed. Thank you again for the work that went into your twelve days of Christmas again this year.

    Every picture is So beautiful. Still thinking on being number 49. I’ll decide tomorrow. Need to make sure I could fit it in my sewing room. 🙂

    Wishing you an absolutely fabulous 2017.

    Hi Lisa,
    How do you win the sewing machine? Usually you instruct your fans on having us tell you something…Being great full or what we like… and on this occasion I did not see any direction from you…Every day I have read your blog from the 12 days….Well, I was hoping to win the sewing machine because I was one of your customers from San Diego and in August 2016, I moved from San Diego to Washington state after being unemployed for 2 years…all of my belongings are in storage in San Diego including my sewing machine…My beautiful fabric, kits from your store and tons of patterns…So until the time I can afford to go get my stuff, all I can do is be patient until I can get back the thing that brings me the most joy…quilting. Happy Quilting to you and your staff.

      You are eligible to win a Juki if you buy a Juki during the 12 Days of Christmas sale. Lisa gives away a $999.00 machine if 50 people buy one at her special price of $899.00. I believe the information was stated within the lengthy discussion of why Lisa believes in the Juki, on day 12. I have wanted the machine since Lisa started offering it at Christmas, this year I treated myself! But I’d love to win it!

    Your house is just so very lovely! I especially love the picture of your dog on the steps – sweet, sweet, sweet! I wonder if you know any of the pattern names of your beautiful red and white quilts? I have always wanted to make a red and white quilt and I wasn’t able to participate in your free patterns these last few months – life got in the way :(( Happy New Year to you and yours!!!

    Happy new year! Love the grand tour, what a lovely home you have. Could you show the quilt rack with the red and white quilt hanging behind the tree. Is it a swing arm type? I would like my husband to make one for me but I need more detail for him. A picture would help . Thanks

    Very pretty decorations in your beautiful home! What a talent you have for decorating and putting things together! I also really like the painted wooden candy cane sign too! Did you make it? I could really see it made with fabric into a quilt! I am a red and white quilt lover as well.

    I love the Needful Things you recommend every year. It gives me a chance to see new (& old) things that might help me in my beginning quilting. I have a 50 something year old sewing machine that my parents bought for me at the state fair years ago. Now that I’m retired & learning to quilt (never too old), I splurged on a Juki, on your recommendation. Can’t wait! Have a very happy & healthy New Year!

    Happy new year to you and your shop. I love the pics of you Christmas house. Incredible job, thank you for inviting us into it.
    And today my husband told me to order a juki!!! I was in shock, but he told me that I handle so much of our life, all the details of our house selling and buying a cottage, selling my pottery business etc etc. It was time to have this special gift! I didn’t wait but jumped on the store’s website! Can’t wait to see it.

    Thank you for sharing the pictures of your new home. It looks so warm and welcoming with all your decorations. You truly have made your new house a home.

    I finally did it. After a few years of desperately needing a new machine and talking to Lisa about the good (a lot) and the bad (virtually none) of the Juki, I took the leap. I want nothing more than to get back to enjoy machine quilting. I cannot wait to get my new machine!!
