If you’ve been following my blog or Facebook page this week, you know that Primitive Gatherings has officially reached 20,000 followers on my, Stitch with Lisa Bongean Facebook page! Thanks again to all of you for helping us to meet such an awesome milestone. Seems like just yesterday we were in a tiny little shop with only a few employees back in Menasha. I’m still a bit in disbelief that I get to live my dreams through the growing success of Primitive Gatherings every day. I could not have done it without my family, friends, staff…and of course all of you! Thank you, thank you, thank you!

As a way to show my gratitude, I have a big surprise for everyone! TODAY ONLY I am giving you 20% OFF ALL PURCHASES from the shop, website or via phone order (offer excludes pre-orders, thread kits and sewing machines) through midnight today, Thursday February 10th, 2022!!! In other words, if you’ve been contemplating a new project or just need to stock up on supplies, today is the day to do it. Don’t wait, at a 20% discount, you really can’t go wrong! To get your 20% discount, simply enter the code 20K1DAY at checkout.

As I mentioned yesterday, I will also be giving away prizes to 20 lucky viewers during my YouTube LIVE, Stitch with Lisa Bongean today at 1PM CST! Names will be drawn from those of you who leave comments, and will be announced live on air as we pick them! Take a look at some of the goodies selected from the shop as prizes…

Jess did a wonderful job with her prize selections, don’t you think? She chose a variety of items I think any stitcher would appreciate winning. She included Jelly Rolls, Charm Packs, Layer Cakes, a wool ironing mat, PG coffee tumblers, Magic Pins, Valdani threads, a couple of Fat Quarter Towers, ceramic thread bowls, a PG tote bag, PG patches, some of my all-time favorite books….and more! We actually had to move some things around in the studio just to make room for it all. LOL! I really hope you get in on the fun and are lucky enough to win something!

Just a quick note on my favorite patient at Anchor Point… I know you all have been wondering about Nick’s progress and I’m happy to say everything is going smoothly. He is going to physical therapy twice a week as prescribed. Surprisingly, he reports PT is the best part of all of this (in my experience physical therapy was always more like PT = pain and torture!). They exercise and stretch his shoulder out, which he says feels amazing since it’s usually confined to his sling – even while he sleeps! It’s one of the only things that provides him any relief, otherwise he’s pretty uncomfortable overall. Sleeping is still one of his biggest challenges considering he can’t take the sling off, so he’s only able to manage a few hours at a time. It should be about three more weeks with this sling on. After that, we’re not sure what he’ll type he’ll get. Either way he’s looking forward to being rid of the big, bulky one and into something a little less cumbersome.

That’s all for today everyone. Don’t forget to join me at 1PM today for your chance to win during, Stitch with Lisa Bongean! Remember, all you have to do to enter for a chance to win a prize is leave us a comment during the show. If you can’t tune-in during the LIVE broadcast, don’t worry! I will also be giving prizes to 20 people who make a purchase from Primitive Gatherings either at the shop, through the website, or over the phone! Those winners will be notified by email.

Say I Love You with Wool!

Hi again, and happy Monday! I hope everyone had a nice weekend. With Valentine’s Day quickly approaching it was nice to have a little time to make sure all my ducks are in a row for the holiday. Between my grandkids, my boys and of course Nick, I have a few Valentines to prepare gifts for so I appreciated the time to get all that squared away.

Over the last couple of weeks, I have talked about my favorite Valentine-themed projects during a few of our YouTube LIVE broadcasts. Most recently, I covered some larger quilt projects, a few simple pillow ideas, sweetheart bowl fillers, notion gift-tins, pre-cut fat quarter packs, wool hangers…and of course caramels to name a few! Thanks to everyone who placed orders last week. Let us know in the comments how all your Valentine projects turned out!

Many of you had questions regarding the seasonal wool hanger/table mat sets that I showed, so I thought I would go over them again to help clarify which mats are in which set. Both are super cute and designed to be part of an interchangeable, seasonal set that can be displayed on a clipboard, as a wall hanging, or small table mat.

Let’s start with the smaller of the two sets. This collection includes a version for Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, and for the Harvest season. Both the Valentine’s Day and St. Patrick’s Day versions are available in light and dark options (please indicate which one you’d like in the comments when ordering). These adorable little decorations have a finished size of 8 1/4″ x 10″ each, and are easy to display as a wall-hanger, on a clipboard or as a small table mat.

I love these little guys for Valentine gifts, especially if you have more than one sweetheart to make for. They’re also adorable for décor throughout the house. Whether you hang them on the wall, a clipboard or use them as a mini table mat, they are easy to display and just really, really cute!

If you’re looking for something a bit larger I have another set of seasonal mats that work well for decorating any room of the house. These hangers are also perfect to display hanging on the wall or on a clipboard as well. These festive mats measure at 11 3/4″ x 11 3/4″ finished size. Clipboards large enough for these cuties are available for purchase on the website as well.

Hopefully that helps to clear up any confusion as far as my seasonal wall hangers/mats go. If you have any additional questions about them, please feel free to call the shop at 920-722-7233.

In other news, I have something exciting to share with you all! We have officially reached 20,000 followers on my Facebook group, STITCH with Lisa Bongean! We have just about as many followers on my, “Stitch with Lisa Bongean YouTube channel as well, which is one heck of an accomplishment. All I can say is, WOW! I’m so honored! I can’t say thank you enough. We could never have done it without you!

I wanted to do something special as a way to say thank you to all our loyal customers and fans for helping us to reach this amazing goal, so I came up with something I think everyone is going to appreciate! In honor of our 20K followers on both Facebook and YouTube, I will be giving away 20 prizes during my YouTube LIVE broadcast this Thursday, February 10th, 2022. We will be picking 20 winners from those of you commenting during the broadcast, which we will announce on air. Since not everyone is able to join us live, we’ll ALSO be giving away prizes to 20 people who place an order before midnight with us on that Thursday. Jess and the girls have been hard at work picking out prize items we know anyone would appreciate winning, so be sure and tune in for that!

Hit the link below to tune into my Stitch with Lisa Bongean YouTube LIVE on Thursday at 1PM so you can get in on all the prizes and fun coming up. We’ll of course be delving into the prize bin, covering any news and announcements from the shop, and discussing some upcoming projects and events. Hope to see you there! ~Lisa
