2018 Adventure….who wants to come!!

I wanted to wait to announce this adventure with all the holidays and craziness of life but….now is the time…Check your calendar are you busy?  You’ll want to come to the Outer Banks of NC…in September!! We will be able to swim and enjoy the all the amenities…not just look at them!!!  We have gone in the past but in non peak season…the reason being the house is much more affordable then…but we are splurging because we deserve it!!!We work hard day in and day out…and deserve some me/girlfriend/fun times!!!  Life is short so…why not?

I could not say no to doing this…I’m supposed to be having a lot of time off this year…well this will be so much fun it will feel nothing like working!!!

Click HERE to print/see the registration form…

All this fun is brought to you by Primitive Gatherings & Olde Green Cupboard gals…where stitching and fun collide…I have met so many wonderful quilters from our previous adventures…this is a way to gather up a group of friends or come by yourself if you just want to get-away…you will go home with 40 new friends regardless…I promise…it’s really a lot of fun!  Lots of prizes…lessons and endless laughter…

Come join us…for an unforgettable end to summer!

Are you ready for our Annual Primitive Christmas Event!!!

Well I hope you are all as excited as we are tired!!! lol…no really we are excited too…to see all of the work we have done all staged up and ready for you all…I wish you all could come through our doors and see how beautiful the shop is…I will post some pics tomorrow…but I promised a reveal of the last two items…

Here is our 11″x 33″ish runner..I designed this to go on my “behind the sofa table” So its a little skinny but big enough still for any regular table or coffee table.. We have included a cute alphabet and numbers in case you like to date your project…but wouldn’t this make a great gift…very simple piecing and a little wool appliqué!!!  I think my runner was sent to CA, but the WI store will have the one with the year on it..

 

I took this pic of Jean’s runner while it was being quilted…so it is “in progress”…we cross hatched about every half inch…so those lines will have one more in between as well and crossed the other way…

Then we have the candy cane santa….he is soooooo cute…but his eyes were bugging me so I re-stitched them…much better now…he was “scared straight” Santa…now he’s just jolly old Santa… Now you have seen all four of your projects…I can say I really am happy with how they all turned out…I did a few more Christmas projects and will be teaching these in NC the week after Thanksgiving….you will be able to order these as well…

The shop girls have also been working hard making new projects for this event from many talented designers…like Stacey, from Buttermilk Basin and Bonnie, from  All through the Night…many more but those are a few I seen many samples from…The shop girls also have created all these little quilty gifts for you to buy for your quilty friends…I want one of all of them!!!  Jessica will be blogging about all the things and prices and so on on our shop blog…sometime today yet…so I hope you are signed up for those posts as well…Then another great thing about this years event is our MINI Quilt show….our customers will be voting on their favorite quilt in 3 different categories…Triangles-blue tags Appliqué-yellow tags and then Pieced-red tags….I am not showing ALL the quilts now…I want to give them a whole separate blog post…they are so awesome!!!

Please visit our site soon to order all of our goodies!!!https://www.primitivegatherings.us

What’s coming up?

I know some of you know we are all working our butts off for our biggest event of the year…I am taking a break…eating a bowl of chili for dinner for the third day in a row…gets better everyday…still a lot left…hopefully it will take me to Thursday…

This Thursday is our first day of our Primitive Christmas Event!!! I love this event…its tough getting it all ready…designed, stitched patterned, cutting and kitting…patterns checked…always pushing…make another set of samples for CA…mugs came in on time…shipped everything to CA today 2nd day air…watching the Voice stitching one last binding…now…time to start sharing what’s coming…the Free pincushion kit or you can frame it…yes..I think it’s that cute…So how does this all happen…I walk through the warehouse…find a bunch of bolts or end cuts just sitting there…maybe a little while too long…it’s time to “get rid” of this…no…scratch that…it time for it to “be something”….Well…we give lots of these away…between the two shops and our web orders…so I want to design something that every “stitcher” will LOVE…

So…here is your pincushion you will get free along with 3 other patterns with a $30 purchase Thursday the 16th-19th at the shops or through the 20th on our website…I hope you like it…you will be able to purchase extras for $5 each and you can pick your color…We have red, gold and natural….I have to admit I am a little smitten with the “vintage farmhouse” look that’s so popular lately…so that is what the natural one is trying to encompass…the urban farmhouse stitcher!!!We will also be selling black /cream frames for $25 each…If you are framing your pincushion you will have to stitch some scrap extenders on to wrap in the frame…they will have a 5 1/2″ opening.

Thank you all for being the best part of Primitive Gatherings…I will be revealing more tomorrow…can’t wait to show you our “stacked” project this year, sweetest one yet!!!

Is there enough time yet tonight to make a Moda blockhead block and maybe a Triangle Gathering block too…until tomorrow…LBGreat shot of the sunset…love the reflection…Anchor Point 11/12/17.

Border Correction…for Happy Home….Summer 2017 Freebie pattern….and the start of Fall Quilt Market!!!!

I wanted to let everyone who bought the Freebie Finishing kit “Happy Home” that we wrote the directions for adding the border the wrong way…well.. we wrote them for how a border normally goes on…sides and then top and bottom…but I put this border on log cabin style…so if you cut both your sides the same size you will not have enough for the top fabric….It was caught early but if you cut yours already please call us at the shop. (920-722-7233) and we will take care of it….

Happy Home Correction     I have also added it to our corrections page..

Thank you as some “mistakes” are not easily caught!!!

I am in Houston…all set up for the show!!!

Patterns will be coming soon for the quilts and the little things…Fulltime/Partime is the name of the blue quilt…Sticks & Stones the quilt on the left bunched up…and Checked Out the quilt on the ladder…

Sentiments of Home…These can be framed, pillowed or put on a funky clip board!!

Chenille Pillows…who remembers making chenille back in the “homespun” crazy days?…this technique is so easy and fun…I’ll be doing a video soon on how to make them!!!  You can insert your favorite word…home…family…faith…or an Initial…or a symbol…like the heart, anchor…I can see a stag…star…pumpkin…cross…do you see all the possibilities???  See the above 1st for more pillows…

Sweethearts…I always wanted to stitch some hearts…perfect for upcoming Valentine’s Day or really…everyday!!!

I’ll be doing some more posting…also see FB & IG!!!

take care…LB

California Big Stitch Class

I’m in my 4th state in less than two weeks…(Texas, Utah, & Cali…flew out of Vegas so that counts as four…lol) Had a wonderful flight Friday and a class the first thing this morning…(Sat.)

Todays class was Big-Stitch Quilting…we had 9 new stitchers and one repeat from the last one I taught…she loved it so much she wanted to come back and retain more knowledge…Do you remember Barb’s quilt we got her started on in her 1st class?  She was the one who brought in the frame and I set it up and we got her started…Read the post HERE if you want to hear about it.  She was so proud of her flag quilt that will hang in her son’s 8th grade class…Barb then started basting her next quilt…The rest of the 9 ladies all were stitching away…I think this was the easies hand quilting class I have ever taught…they all “got it” right away!!!Thanks Ladies for an awesome day!!!  I appreciate you coming to PG and taking a class…good luck on getting those quilts quilted….I hope Barb inspired you to just go for it!!!
