Hey! Nice to see you back here. Clearly, you survived at least the first round of holiday festivities this last weekend. Not that I doubted you, but we all know how stressful, crazy, (am I allowed to say annoying at times?), and out of control the holidays can be, especially when you have a whole lot of related people crammed in what is probably not enough space. In my case, however, things were just perfect this Christmas. I didn’t go anywhere or make a big fuss out of much. I simply focused on being home and spending quality time with the people I love the most. We ate, we drank, we baked, and of course, exchanged gifts. I could not have asked for a time better well spent.
I certainly hope that your Christmas holiday was just as joyful as mine. Unfortunately, time off never seems to last long enough. I’ll be back to work tomorrow for at least most of the week, but will certainly revert to party mode by Friday. Bring on the new year! I’m ready, are you? I have a ton of new ideas for 2023 and I’m chomping at the bit to get started. Do you have any big project goals in mind for the new year? How about small project goals? Let me know in the comments what your aspirations for this new quilting year are. I’d love to hear your ideas – I might even find some inspiration, you never know!
Speaking of new projects, have you had a chance to stock up on everything and anything you might need for any creative adventures you plan to start? Don’t forget that today is your last chance to get 25% OFF store/site-wide (new items are not included and have been removed from the website until after the sale is over). It’s a great time to stock up on your favorite Primitive Gatherings fabrics, threads, needles, patterns, kits, notions, and more! Click the button below to shop til your heart’s content!
As I mentioned above, there are several items we were not able to include in the sale because they are so new, so if you can’t find something on the website you know was just there last week, that’s most likely the reason why (for example, sewing machines and subscription boxes are also not included in the sale). Don’t forget – even though the retail shop is not open today due to the holiday, you can still shop! The sale includes both in-store and online merchandise.
I’d also like to take a second to remind everyone that the shop will also be closed on New Year’s day Sunday 1/1/23, Monday 1/2/23, and Tuesday 1/3/23 (we are open during our regular winter business hours on New Year’s Eve – Saturday 12/31/22). Here are our current holiday hours:….annnnd since we’re on the topic of store hours, please also keep in mind that our winter hours are now in effect and will be until April, 2023. They are as follows:For whatever reason, it seems that we can post these hours on all our social media outlets so many times it’s to the point of feeling obnoxious, yet somehow we always manage to miss someone. That being said, please remember to either call ahead or check the facebook pages for modified hours due to holidays, weather, etc. If you are planning a visit, we’d love to have you! But please make sure we are open before you make a long trip to see us. I can tell you the parking lot is extra big, and extra lonely when you’re the only one in it!
Ok everyone – enough working for today. The sun is shining and the birds are even singing. We’re sitting at a balmy 17º right now and it feels like we’re havin’ a heat wave after enduring sub-zero temps for the last several days. Our “real feel” temps were in the negative 40’s for a bit there, so now all of a sudden it feels like shorts weather. One of the perks of a cold snap like that I guess. You won’t hear me complaining about anything under 15º until maybe… next fall. Enjoy the rest of your day and I will see you all soon. Happy shopping…and stitching! ~Lisa
