Hey Everyone… just a couple of things to keep you informed…
Due to the recent shut down of non-essential business in our State of Wisconsin we have been operating at very limited basis. We are taking the best measures we can to keep our employees safe as well as our families. Our store is closed to the public but our Primitive Gatherings website is up and still accepting orders. We will do everything in our power to get you your Bunny, Tulip kits & patterns out to you. However, please know that our shipping dept. is now 1 person. She is amazing and can get large amounts out in day, but out of stock items will hold up shipping.
We SO appreciate that you are still placing orders but please keep in mind that if you order things that we do not produce, like other designers patterns we might not be able to get them out in a timely manner. If you choose to buy Primitive Gatherings kits, patterns, wools that we will able to do with more success.
We had a ton of pillow forms purchased, way more than we and the pillow supplier had in stock. We will ship your kits and then ship your pillow forms separately when they come in, the first week in April. This will basically cost us more to ship twice, but we do not want to hold a bunny kit order. We want you to be able to stitch it and have it ready to enjoy this Spring. The pillow forms are out of stock now on the website, however if you want one you can order it…just know it will take longer than usual.
Luckily, we have one wool dyer still working because she works from home and if we have to put kits together that will be a skeleton crew as well…so I guess I am just saying we will operate the best we can in the situation as it is.
Thank you so much for all the Bunny & Tulip Orders! We did have a nice stock of them when we put them up on the website and I know Jess stated 100 orders went out yesterday…
Our phone rings off the hook…so please keep in mind we are not always there now to answer it. If you have an important question please email us.
The shops email is firstname.lastname@example.org This will also probably be answered from a home office and if you are just wondering when your order will arrive, that may not be possible to answer. So I guess what I am stating here is please, please, please have extra patience at this time…If we are answering phone calls and emails….we are not making kits and shipping.
I am trying to avoid shutting down the website all together. If we do not have too many upset people calling I will keep it up…So please be kind and know we are doing the best we can with what we have…
I am looking forward to making some masks…I have some elastic and lots of fabric to choose from.
Please stay safe, however that looks for you…and again..I can’t say how much we appreciate you placing orders at this critical time. I will keep posting as long as I don’t run out of things to do/say… Look for another Free piecing pattern next…tomorrow is Friday Give-Away Day!
