Much Ado About Stuffing…

Hey gang. Happy Hump Day and Thanksgiving eve! It’s been an easygoing day so far here at the studio, since things are finally starting to wind down now that Primitive Christmas 2022 is in the books. Thanksgiving day is just about here and many people are already on the road traveling for the big day, so I’m sure that’s another reason why it’s been a fairly quiet day. I put a pretty big dent in my “to-do” list working from home over the last couple of days, so I’m looking forward to focusing on the holiday and family time for the rest of the week. I don’t have any plans to travel, which is absolutely awesome! I’m going to be home making a big meal for my family to enjoy. I have learned over the years that traveling for the holidays is super overrated and more trouble than it’s worth, so I’m quite happy to stay put right here at Anchor Point where I belong. I mean sheesh, I spend all week working hard to pay for the place… You can’t blame me for wanting to spend my time here with my family every chance I get!

All that being said, I don’t have much to talk about today aside from wishing everyone a happy Thanksgiving tomorrow. Please travel safely and try not to eat too much (who am I trying to kid – bring on the green bean casserole)! In case you’re out last-minute shopping today, please keep in mind that the shop here at Primitive Gatherings closed at 2:00 p.m. so our staff can get a head start on their own holiday preparations.

We will remain closed to celebrate the holiday through Sunday, November 27th and reopen for business Monday, November 28th at 10:00 a.m. CST. If you are ordering online and happen to need assistance during our time off, please call the shop at 920.722.7233 on Monday after 10:00 a.m. – there will not be anyone answering phones until then.

Alright everyone! I wish you all a very happy, safe, and cheerful Thanksgiving. I know many of you are probably headed to family gatherings that may – or may not – be a wonderful time. LOL! Just remember, life is short and you can choose your friends but not your family. Try to embrace the time you have together no matter the circumstances. Have fun and enjoy one another, and I will see you all soon! Take care. ~Lisa

  1. Happy Thanksgiving to all of your family, and your staff’s. You have a terrific group of people there!

  2. We all dislike turkey with a passion, so we’re having roasted chicken instead. Personally, I could make a whole meal just on the stuffing with some pie for dessert.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you & all your family. I think its great that you give so much time off to all your employees for the holiday. Many blessings to you & all the quilters out there.

  4. And a happy & restful Thanksgiving to you and your family. When you think you’ve eaten all you can, just remember — Don’t stop ’til you pop! hahaha

  5. Thanksgiving blessings, Lisa and co. Hope all you have a weekend filled with family, fun and maybe even some stitching time! 🖤

  11. Happy Thanksgiving Lisa! I always love your newsletters. I love the fact that you recognized that not all families get along, that made me chuckle. Luckily I’m super blessed to have a wonderful family. I’ll be hosting this year for 17 people and 5 dogs. Should make for a little craziness. Many Blessing to your family.
