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….
