Classes in Menasha WI…Patriotic on the web!!

I promised to let you all know when we got all those awesome patriotic projects from the NC retreat on the web…they are all on and ready…We need to thank the NC retreat girls for proofing all our patterns!!!  See we were working too along with all that fun!!






See those little bright green things…they will grow up to be tulips…can’t wait to show you them when they are blooming!!! I brought Jeter for a walk at noon…since my flight got cancelled!!!! I will not be in CA until tomorrow…so I thought I would get some work done…do you remember when I was planting these??? I posted about it here on the blog October 2016…

So…I also have my class schedule for WI…

Come to beautiful WI…soon the tulips will be blooming… and then the summer flowers, nice temperatures and green green grass…I am listing my WI classes  with pictures of the projects in this PDF Lisa’s WI Classes  This list goes through the end of the year….I don’t know why it took me so long to get it done..but probably because I was gone to too many other places teaching!!!

We have smaller more intimate classes than at the big shows/guilds and do not have to charge big money to pay for a convention hall room…so why not come…stay over at the retreat house…and join in the fun!!!

We also are offering a Sit & Sew for you to come work on what you have and have me their to guide you and help you make those decisions you just can’t yourself…This group is a fun, interactive and who knows what we will all be doing…I bounce design ideas off of this group as well and show them what’s new and up and coming…It’s very like a personal sewing group…here is the Sit & Sew description..

Sit & Sew

Bring your projects…get advice…ask questions…learn a new technique… get a sneak peek at our upcoming designs and hear about what’s happening at Primitive Gatherings!! You will not want to miss being a part of this sewing group…Lisa promises a good time as well as lots of stitching!
This group will meet at Lisa’s studio location- 1860 Bud Dr, Suite 101.

Class Fee: $30 per session, or $200 if you sign up for all 8 sessions! Dates: Feb. 14th, April 18th, June 6th, July 11th, Aug. 15th, Sept. 19th, Nov. 21st, and Dec. 12th Time: 9am – 2pm

Bring a lunch if you wish, or we can order out and sometimes Lisa cooks for us…We will email you ahead of the class.
Spots will fill quickly, give us a call to add your name to the list!!


Then the other new class I am offering is…below…this class if less about how beautiful the project is, and more about what I’m going to learn while doing this…You get to pick your fabrics…

New Class for 2017!!   From Start to Finish-

Have you ever wondered how Lisa gets so much accomplished, in such a short time? Then this may be the class for you! She will be sharing many tips for improving your piecing skills, demonstrating her techniques and notions, and showing you some shortcuts to make quilting an even more enjoyable experience!

This is not intended to be a beginner class, basic sewing skills, and knowledge of your machine’s operation are required.

We will get together on four different dates to assemble a small quilt, from start to finish. You will be able to pick out your own color way/fabrics, and remember this is about techniques, not about how glorious the project is…The tentative schedule is here…

Session 1 – We will cover preparing your fabrics, cutting and piecing one block…then you will have some homework, to assemble the remaining blocks.

Session 2 – We will cover assembling your blocks into rows, joining the rows, cutting, and attaching the borders.

Session 3 – We will be making the back for your quilt, layering the quilt, and covering some basic machine quilting techniques.

Session 4 – We will be making your binding, and attaching both the binding and a sleeve to your quilt, and celebrating your finished project!

Class location will be based upon number of students signed up for the class, please contact the shop a few days prior to the first session.

Instructor: Lisa Bongean
Class Fee: $100, for the 4 sessions
Time: 9am start time – Ending times will vary per each session Dates: June 7th, 28th, July 12th and 26th

Hope to see you sometime!!!Come to WI enjoy the GREEN!

    Sorry your flight was cancelled. I am in San Diego and I got a call from a friend that was going to Wisconsin today and she needed a ride home from the airport because her flight was cancelled! They did not have a pilot or first officer to fly the plane. Hopefully she will fly out tomorrow to visit her family in Madison. Hope you get out tomorrow too, have a safe flight.

    Your tulips will be so pretty in a group like that. I hope you don’t have a busy-bunny like we do, eating off the buds before they even get 2″ tall. Little stinker!

    I was so excited to find your blog, a girl actually from Menasha. I was born in Neenah in 1948 and we lived with my grandparents on Water St in Menasha across the road from the canal. Sadly her wonderful house is now a parking lot and don’t even know if there is still a Water St. I only wish I was still there so I could participate in your classes. I know I would love them, I am a real crafter. Now live in North Dakota but have so many memories of my life in Menasha, moved away when I was 4 years old but still remember 1948-1952 and all trips back to visit. Happy crafting
