What’s coming up?

I know some of you know we are all working our butts off for our biggest event of the year…I am taking a break…eating a bowl of chili for dinner for the third day in a row…gets better everyday…still a lot left…hopefully it will take me to Thursday…

This Thursday is our first day of our Primitive Christmas Event!!! I love this event…its tough getting it all ready…designed, stitched patterned, cutting and kitting…patterns checked…always pushing…make another set of samples for CA…mugs came in on time…shipped everything to CA today 2nd day air…watching the Voice stitching one last binding…now…time to start sharing what’s coming…the Free pincushion kit or you can frame it…yes..I think it’s that cute…So how does this all happen…I walk through the warehouse…find a bunch of bolts or end cuts just sitting there…maybe a little while too long…it’s time to “get rid” of this…no…scratch that…it time for it to “be something”….Well…we give lots of these away…between the two shops and our web orders…so I want to design something that every “stitcher” will LOVE…

So…here is your pincushion you will get free along with 3 other patterns with a $30 purchase Thursday the 16th-19th at the shops or through the 20th on our website…I hope you like it…you will be able to purchase extras for $5 each and you can pick your color…We have red, gold and natural….I have to admit I am a little smitten with the “vintage farmhouse” look that’s so popular lately…so that is what the natural one is trying to encompass…the urban farmhouse stitcher!!!We will also be selling black /cream frames for $25 each…If you are framing your pincushion you will have to stitch some scrap extenders on to wrap in the frame…they will have a 5 1/2″ opening.

Thank you all for being the best part of Primitive Gatherings…I will be revealing more tomorrow…can’t wait to show you our “stacked” project this year, sweetest one yet!!!

Is there enough time yet tonight to make a Moda blockhead block and maybe a Triangle Gathering block too…until tomorrow…LBGreat shot of the sunset…love the reflection…Anchor Point 11/12/17.

  1. Oh, Is that my guest house for when I come to visit Lisa? Lol J/K But what a dreamy place you lucky girl! The new pin cushion is so cute! Hopefully, I’ll see you at Road???

  2. Love the pincushion, especially the cream and grey one. Can’t wait to see your other designs. Thank-you for showing us before Thursday.

  3. Love the pincushion this year. Which one, and what frame I’m asking myself? All so wonderful. Cannot wait for the rest of the unveiling!

  4. What a beautiful sunset! LOL I’m having chili for dinner too; made it in a huge batch in October and froze some for a chilly night (no pun intended), it’s 61 here 🙂 (I know not very chilly by your standards). Those pin cushions are adorable thanks for the sneak peak!

  5. You never cease to amaze me—- your work ethic is amazing! I’m winding down for the night and you are still bringing it on—- 2 more blocks— sure. No problem. That’s why we love you. We all want to be you,

  6. Hi Lisa, I love the pincushion design, especially the gold, and “stitch on” reminds me of you. We are so lucky to have you spoiling us as you do. The sunset picture of anchor point is absolutely stunning!! Thank you for sharing. Hugs, Jakey

  7. Wow, what a breathtaking view!! I will come back to this blog and reflect upon this photo more then once. The pincushion is a perfect gift to give. I really like the gold one but I think I need the red one too. I’m going to frame them both and give as gifts. Thanks Lisa, you really do so much for all of us.

  8. Lisa, I love the pincushion and frame. I, too, like the vintage farmhouse look…excited about Primitive Gatherings Christmas, wishing I was able to be there….but, I’ll be ordering online! Happy Holidays and a big “Thank You” for all that you do!!

  9. Love the pincushion too, I started a collection of pincushions after the first one I bought on line from you ! I have homemade ones and ones people have bought me on a cabinet. I use my longer heart one that was a kit of yours as my everyday cushion and love it !!! Happy Thanksgiving

  10. There’s obviously no end to your creative genius…..and I’m grateful:) As a pin cushion collector, I look forward to your pattern every year:) I can’t wit to see what else you have up your sleeve! That view is spectacular – something I’m sure you never tire of. Thanks for sharing…..and thanks to your staff for working so hard:)

  11. I look forward to this every year! I love this pincushion and can’t wait to see what you have planned.

  12. Thank you for all of your hard work. Mostly thank you for inspiring me. I need your inspiration more than you will ever know.

  13. Love the new pincushion or picture. I’m so thankful that you share your great talents with all of us.

  14. I love all of your patterns/projects. I am currently working on the Primitive Garden quilt and I’m wondering where I can order the block with the flag. Thank you.
