I have so much to share with you and wanted to earlier in the month but Jessica said I could not post because they were so busy at the shop getting the Primitive
Christmas Event stuff out…so now most of that is on the way to you or you have already received it…and again…thank you for the best ever Christmas event!
Now it’s time to show off some of my student’s work…and boy let me tell you this last trip to CA and then to Normal IL (next post…this one got way too long…lol)…I have lots to share…
Right before our Christmas Event I was in CA for our Christmas Retreat…which usually happens after Thanksgiving but since it was a late date this year we got switched to before Thanksgiving!!! If you want to join the fun we are doing it again in June 7-11th! Please call the CA shop to sign up.
If I have some names mixed up or something like that…I apologize in advance…please shoot me an email and I can update it…but with 60 ladies it is a lot to keep track of…
also…I have linked the projects to their source of information for your convenience. Just click on it and it will take you there!
Let’s start off by showing off Angela’s FINISHED Twilight Garden!!!
Angela works at the CA store…stop in and take her wool class that meets once a week…as you can see she definitely is qualified!!!
We play a few games for sewing prizes and then maybe for dollars….oh..shoot…there is always the one…
One of our retreat projects was this project called….Have Ewe Any Wool?
Then we worked on the Peace Love Joy pillow.…if you placed an order during our Primitive Christmas event you have this pattern!
And then our last project was the Santa stitchery...one of the ladies put hers on red flannel so I have to show this off!Here is the stitchery after it was washed to remove sulky product that you can run through the copy machine and stick on your fabric and stitch through it…I will do a whole post on this soon…and no the my MODA red flannel does not run…in case you are wondering!
Here it is all dried and beautiful!
Now here are a bunch of photos of the ladies working on their projects…
Look at the tiny flannel Dresden’s being made…
Theresa..thought she would escape me… I did catch her working instead of shopping one time! The ladies went crazy over the wool subscription boxes! I think that is the PG website still on her computer!!!
Neatest person at retreat…I won’t reveal who you are…but I wonder…no I’m sure her sewing room looks the same….
My sewing space is never this clean or organized…
Look…my NEW book being used!!!! Sales are crazy!!! Thank you to those who already have it…and tell everyone about it!!! Wool, Needle & Thread…the go-to guide for wool appliqués!

Look for my next post from Normal IL…
This post contains links to buy or learn about the projects. Some are to our Primitive Gatherings website…some are to the the original designers web sites…some are affiliate links. I may make a small percentage of the sale if you order from the affiliate links. I do not make any money when linking to other designer’s websites…I do this because they are in the same business as I am and trying to run their small businesses. I hope this makes sense…I do the links instead of answering single questions of “where can I buy this?” or “who’s pattern is this?”…if there is no link I either do not know of where it came from or I already linked it earlier in the post.
