It’s Our Anniversary!

Hey everyone! I hope you had a chance to get outside to enjoy the nice, HOT weather we had over the weekend. I know I’ve said it before, but I think that after today the warm temps that we’ve been seeing over the last couple of days might finally be done for the year. No matter how much summer seems to resist, there is an undeniable chill in the after the sun goes down that can only mean one thing. Winter is definitely coming! I know, I know. I’m not ready either but I also understand that there isn’t much I can do about it – especially living in a state like WI. The only thing I can do to try and make the idea of it better, is to get pumped about all the things I love about fall and the holiday season, which is just around the corner (either that or pack up and go to FL for six months like a lot of people do…but, who’s got time for that!?).

October’s arrival means a couple of things for us here at PG. Number one, it’s my birthday month – woo hoo!! If you recall, last year our website woes were still in full-swing around this time, so I was unable to do anything fun to celebrate like I normally would, such as my annual free birthday pattern for instance. I’m sorry about that, but I’m also happy to say that those days are in the past! This year I will indeed have a little something for you in honor of my 29th born-on date… My actual birthday is in late October, so watch for it here on the blog closer to the end of the month.

Almost as equally important, PG itself is having a birthday of its own! During LIVE last week, I announced that we have officially hit 20 years in business at Primitive Gatherings, and two official full years here at our new location in Larsen, WI. How did that even happen? It feels like just yesterday that I was dabbling with the idea of “Backyard Quilts,” and starting a small business out of my basement. I really couldn’t be more proud of what this little dream of mine has become! I want to say thank you to my family, friends, my top-notch staff, and especially to all of you for the support over the years. I truly could not have done this without everyone I just mentioned, and there really isn’t a way for me to express how grateful I am in words. That’s why throughout the month of October, 2023 we’re going to be having special daily deals each week. It’s my way of saying thank you from the bottom of my heart! This is especially great news for wool fanatics because to kick things off I’ve taken 20% off all wool yardage, charms, and bundles now through October 8th, 2023 (sale limited to in-stock items only).

If you’re anything like me, my fall and winter projects call for a whole-lotta wool, so if your stash is looking kind of sparse, now is the perfect time to pad it! We have a huge variety of colors and textures that are just plain yummy – there’s no other way to describe them. Don’t miss out on this killer deal – we both know you’ll regret it if you do! You can shop all PG wool products including yardage, bundles, charms, and pennies by clicking the button above!

Did you have a chance to tune in for our special Monday “pop-up” sale on CommentSold? Jess had the pleasure of introducing a new line called “Hybernation” that we will be carrying going forward, brought to us by Tilda’s World. If you like nature and animals, you really need to check this line out. It features sleeping forest animals and nature motifs, with lighter elements on a dark background that gives it a layered and vintage look. Sounds wonderful, doesn’t it? If you’re curious and would like to take a look, you can always go back and watch the replay of past CommentSold sales through the app or in the VIDEOS area of our Facebook page.

Speaking of CommentSold and WOOL, I hope to see you in the morning at 10:00 a.m. central standard time for our regularly scheduled Tuesday episode. Jess has some super unique wool textures to show off that you can’t find anywhere else. In other words, if wool is your thing, don’t miss it! You know the drill… You can tune in through your smart device with our Primitive Gatherings CommentSold app, or through the Primitive Gatherings Facebook Page in the LIVE videos area. I’ll see you there in the comments. Until then have a wonderful evening. Happy shopping everyone!

    Congratulations on your PG anniversary! And happy birthday to you as well. When I first started quilting about 12 yrs ago, I was not a fan of wool. Not for any good reason, but I can remember admiring the patterns that you had designed. Little did I know that I would come to love working with wool. The textures, colors and threads-don’t get me started!

    That’s me, I’m one of those who goes to FL for the winter, but I do take my sewing machine and make quilt tops all winter. Last year I completed Oh say can you sew, this year I’ll be keeping up on time with my twilight stars blocks! Oh, and if course wo appliqué projects too.

    As always thanks for the post. Nah, who needs to go to Florida or Arizona, that’s what winter is for, to hunker down with our favorite sewing or stitching. Boy oh boy were you right on the Steam a seam verses the Heat & Bond FL. I had prepped one of your Heirloom Rose blocks before I saw your video latest info. I had used SAS & thought how bad could it be, I used it few years ago & had bought some new. Well you sure were right, I had to wipe my needle with alcohol constantly & was about to use different alcohol for me, haha, before I got it done, so yep lesson learned. I marked the SAS for stem use only on the package & the Heat & Bond I got from you as the wool adhesive. Sure do appreciate all the advise from you. Keep up the good work.
    Also, Happy Birthday & Happy Anniversary. Rita

    It has been a gorgeous fall day here, most people wouldn’t agree. And the mountains got snow to go along with all the beautiful colored leaves. Fall in Utah is absolutely gorgeous! I am loving the cooler. Weather. Sure makes my heart happy
    I hope you find lots of fun ways to celebrate your birthday. I am so glad I found your company a few years ago. I have worked on some fantastic projects. I think you and your family and all of your staff should be very proud of yourself for all you have been able to accomplish. Congratulations on the 20th anniversary of Primitive Gatherings!
