I wish to THANK all of you who participated in our first ever box!!!!

It was because we have lots of them that we were able to fill that box with lots of wooly goodness!!!  Now those of you who have not ordered this box…at the end I will discuss your options…

We will try and theme our boxes each time…Box #1 Theme…White Winter Pine…I will note when EACH box coming 2-7 will contain something similar.

Each box will contain one main project…in Box #1 it is…

  1. Forrest FriendsPrimitiveGatherings_01
  2.  Each box will contain Something Wooly this one contains a special charm pack of 10 currated wools, both hand dyed and textured.

PrimitiveGatherings_193. Ruler Box

PrimitiveGatherings_034.  Each box will contain a pincushion kit that will fit in the ruler box…so you can switch them out.  This pattern has every monogram for you to make more pincushions…after all you have a bunch of wool charms!!!PrimitiveGatherings_11

5.  Valdani Ball…and a needle…a color used in one of the projects in the box.



6.  Hand made Pins from… Just Another Button Co.PrimitiveGatherings_07

9 & 10. An ON-GOING Wool Applique Project called “Everlasting”.  the number of blocks will vary in each box going forward until I think we have enough for a great quilt.PrimitiveGatherings_13PrimitiveGatherings_1211.  Each block will contain a Recipe Card.


Note: The Target store has this galvanized recipe card holder that will nicely hold all your cards.

12.  This box contained a cookie cutter to go along with the recipe…this droopy tree is so cute!PrimitiveGatherings_2013. Each block will contain a Stitch Card…We are working on the ring/clip to keep them together along with a front and a back cover for our Stitch Cards.  These will come in Box #2IMG_0635IMG_0634

14. Last.. but not least…Hand made Carmels from our famous candy store…VandeWalles Cakes & Candies in Appleton, WIPrimitiveGatherings_14and our box is going to make an amazing storage container….It  turned out so amazing we are so proud of that box!!!  It is valued at $102.00, not counting the box!

    Loved the mystery box. It was as if everything were selected with me in mind. Very special. Glad I signed up. My first box was sitting on the table, my adult son was over and he said, “Oh, is that a mystery box?”. Even he knew what it was!

    I just love the first box and it arrived just in time for me to stitch everything in it during our cold snap we just had. I can’t wait for the Box 2. Thank you so very much for a wonderful box of goodies.

    Loved my box, such a lovely post-Christmas treat when it arrived during one of several recent storms! I’m not aware of the Glad Press and Seal technique… do you have it described on your blog anywhere..?.. pretty new to wool. The box itself, so pretty! It’s wirth the extra $ to have it protected from shipping damage. Glad you stayed up nights dreaming up this entire project. Need to sign up for 2-7!

    Enjoyed #1, and looking forward to all the next ones! The caramels were delicious, but the wool and projects were even better! The box is adorable…will the boxes all be the same?

    Was the ruler box in box #1 or coming in a future box? I loved box 1 and signed up for more but didn’t get the ruler box. If that was a mistake I really need one. So glad I took a chance on the first box. I knew it would be good like everything from PG!

    Lisa and PG staff, I love my wool subscription box!! I loved everything inside! I truly feel as if I’m spoiling myself!! I had my box shipped to my office so that I could show my other quilting/woolie friends, secretly hoping they will join in the fun!! When I went home clutching the box to my chest with love, my boyfriend even was interested to see what treasures I had inside. HA! Even he thought they were all awesome!! Job well done all!!! WE ALL THANK YOU! p.s. the “wool box” is such a high quality box that I will be using it for projects.

    Received box 1 and paid extra 6.00 do not want to do that but these boxes will not fit in mailbox and my carrier just props it outside the mailbox. Can they be sealed or put in plastic so the stuff will not get wet?

    1. lisabongean Avatar

      What we have offered are the options for right now…sorry

    2. lisabongean Avatar

      Can you get a bigger mailbox? Lol

    3. lisabongean Avatar

      Might be cheaper?

      1. jane mckinney Avatar

        my mailbox is larger than anyone elses-will measure cause regular box is smaller without extra box

    I would like to receive Box 1 and can not call the shop. We are currently in Cancun & do not return to Missouri until late next week. Obviously I receive email, so can communicate by email. I am like a previous lady on the post, I am not on Facebook.
    Thanks for considering my request to purchase box 1.
    I am going to the store’s website now and enrolling in the program for Box 2 and future Boxes.

    I signed up for Box 1 & was thrilled with what I got. The boxes themselves, as Lisa said, are amazing. I am already signed up for the remaining boxes & can’t wait to get them. Christmas throughout the year!! To me, from me, love me!

  22. Kathy Avatar

    I love my box and can’t wait for the next one! I signed up yesterday but I got a “fatal error” when trying to pay. My debit card can’t be that hot….LOL! Hopefully that gets worked out. I let the shop know.

  23. Lana Avatar

    Love , love my wool box! I signed up for the remaining boxes Before I received my first one! I knew they would be great because Lisa puts her all in to everything she does. Thank you LIsa! I always open my packages from Pg and feel good…that’s what it’s all about.

    I second all the comments here. Wool Box #1 was amazing. Loved everything about it. I’m all signed up for boxes 2-7 and although I rarely look at my Facebook page, I will be checking in regularly to see what fun things develop on the PB Wool Box group. I hope this is a wonderfully successful endeavor for you.

    I had a particularly rough day at work and when I went to check the mail – I got this absolutely amazing mystery box. As soon as I got home and took care of the furbabies I opened my box. OH MY! Everything was wonderful – there were so many different items. I am new to wool and learning as I go. Can’t wait for the next box. Thanks so much Lisa for putting such a fantastic mystery box together.

  38. Kim Radzienda Avatar

    I may be a little late, but I called the store yesterday and ordered box #1 and subscribed to the boxes forth coming. Holidays were crazy here in Ventura county, CA the last two holidays so a lot of things have slipped through the cracks. But I think I am getting a grip on things. These boxes will cheer me up. I have needed a good reason to get back on track to my stitching.

    I LOVE this box! I somehow missed this when it was offered? I would like to get the January box, but when I call the phone number there is no answer. Maybe the store is closed due to weather? I do have a question, is the ruler box only in the January box?

    1. lisabongean Avatar

      Yes…the ruler box only comes in the Jan box…please call tomorrow and order…we are closed for ANOTHER snowstorm…

    It was so much fun going through all the wonderful projects included in wool box #1, thank you! My question is, will you post the PG Wool Box club comments on your blog as well? I’m probably the only person on the planet who is NOT on Facebook. I’m not a fan of social media but do love reading your blog. Thank you!

  43. dunn1166@hotmail.com Avatar

    Wondering if there are still any boxes available? Tried to call the shop but no answer – I know winter weather has been an issue. Thanks for any update!

    1. lisabongean Avatar

    Lisa, a few ideas….have you considered a club for red and white quilts. I love your collection or what about a crazy quilt BOM using some velvets, embellishment like the old ones. Ive always wanted to make a old fashioned crazy quilt. I know you have passion for these quilts.
