Some Primitive Gatherings News… & Give Away Winner!

Hey….I hope you are all enjoying your stitching this summer! 
We are so busy getting our new store and The Gathering ready for you all!  It is SO exciting! I want to announce that we have started taking reservations and will soon be launching some planned/event retreats!  So look for those SOON as well. 
If you feel like me, you may be going through withdrawls from not enough time with your friends or those who are passionate about stitching and creating wonderful things. Too much alone time last year, so let’s have some fun together!
We are here to provide a place built just for you to hang out, relax and create all the beautiful things you have wanted to work on.   The Gathering will be an experience you will always remember…the inspiration, the gardens, the food, the swag and the camaraderie you can only find when you spend a lot of time together!  I look forward to making new friends at every retreat I attend…and now I can be at one every week!  Quilters are special people to be around.
Here is the flyer for The Gatherings…we offer several packages, 3 nights, 6 nights as well as a discounted whole house booking…but will also do single stays as well…so whether you have a large or small group we look forward to  making  your Quilting experience at The Gathering, one of the best!  Jenny our Gathering manager would love to hear from you and get you set up!
Summer Blocks of the Week are almost ready to ship!!!  We have two this summer.  Our hand pieced or EPP will be a BOM and will start soon as well….

  1. Love the new babies! I’ve even delivered newborn baby lambs at a neighboring sheep farm when I lived in Vermont. There is nothing cuter, except maybe a newborn puppy, kitten, piglet, baby chick, duck, bunny, colt, calf….I could go on and on….they all are a miracle from God and make you smile from ear to ear! Can’t wait to come visit. My calendar is on a countdown! Love you bunches! Vicky

  2. Congratulations on your new additions. We had two sheep when I was growing up, LambChop and Clyde. LambChop and Clyde were quite prolific, she had one lamb, next year she had twins and the third year she had triplets. Can’t say that sheep are the smartest of animals but so sweet.

  3. That is so awesome you have some ewes….good choice. I use to raise sheep, so they have always been close to my heart. I cannot wait to come visit your new home. So exciting. Wishing you God’s best.

  4. Hi Lisa, LOVE the retreat house & the sheep!!
    I will see if Jenny can help a solo quilter like me crash with other quilters. I miss my former PG group… (Jan, Michelle D, Michelle K, Peg, Edith, Stacey, Mary, and of courseTeri)… such good times!! 💖

  5. The store and retreat house sounds awesome! I love the sheep as well! What lucky sheep they are to being living there! ❤️

  6. So awesome! I love what you’re doing and can’t wait to visit your new place!

  7. Congratulations on your new additions, we had our first ram lamb on Monday, we call him Larry, now waiting for the rest of the the flock to produce & hoping Robert the Ram has worked his magic!! The remainder of the sheep farmers in New Zealand are all waiting now, when the numbers will be about 26 million, a lot for a small country like us!

  8. Love their cute names. They are precious. You have so much going on. I can’t wait to get home to start the QAL and also come visit the new shop.

  9. Cute! I love the names Sundrop and Sodapop. I’m signed up for both SBOW’s and can’t wait to get started. I always seem to finish the pieced versions but the wool, still working on the last 3 summers projects. Not sure why that happens….

  10. OMG!!! I have to share I personally love the registered names! Here is the reason why! When I was a kid there was a soda that is really only made in the small Missouri community where I grew up. It is called Sundrop and on a warm summer day it was such a treat when my mom would give me the 25 cents to get it. They still make it and I do stop when in the area and get a bottle. Anyway, the sheep are super adorable. I hope one day I will make it to see Lisa’s new place and be able to meet everyone that has made the last 16 months a bit easier for me personally with all these projects and inspiration!

  11. I can’t wait to come and stay at The Gathering! So exciting! Maybe it’s my Scottish heritage, but I absolutely love sheep. They are so adorable. I have an Old English Sheepdog (my fourth). On a final note, that is a great picture of you standing in front of your quilt! Looking good, girl!

  12. Can you send a copy of the specifications for the Gathering? We’ll need open dates too. We used to go to EAA. They now longer will accept us.

  13. I think the girls names are cute, but you could call them “Prim” & “Proper “. I think that’s cute too.

  14. Oh my goodness your new babies are so adorable. I al really loving the flags and the Red White & Blue. I was finally able to go out and get fabric last week for my flags. They are beautiful. I would love to come and visit your new place, but I am disabled, live on a not so wonderful income and don’t travel to too many places. I live through my computer, I love all of the blog posts and all of the activities on FB. Thank you so much.

  15. Love the sheep names! Where do I go to find the winners of your giveaway each week? I am doing your flag qal and have donated directly to Hogs for hero’s.

  16. Love your blog and all you do to support our veterans. GO RED WHITE AND BLUE , as for the sheep, I think their names are purfect. Who doesn’t love a sundrop and a cool sodapop. Keep up the good works and God bless. Jackie

  17. Every thing is looking good!! Love the lady sheep! Congratulating you on your progress on your dream!!

  18. I love sheep, use to raise them. How about Thelma and Louise? They are so cute. Or Lucy and Ethel. PG is my absolute favorite shop! God Bless you! Patty
