October 23 is Lisa’s Birthday and she is passing some savings onto you!! For all of you Coupon Book Holders out there you will receive 40% off one in stock regular priced item. It does exclude kits, Dovo scissors, sewing machines and thread kits. We have gotten in some great new patterns and books and our website is really starting to turn out amazing!!

As always please please remember to put you coupon book number and code word into the comment box as you check out. We still are working out some of the kinks in the coupon system on our website.

Thanks for being so patient with us. I will be posting a couple of times next week about NEW things about our site and how to use them.

Thank you,
primitive gatherings



Over the past couple months we have been working on upgrading our website in order to make navigating and ordering on our site easier for our customers. When we upload our NEW site, we are going to need to be down for a span of 24 hours. This is going to happen from Thursday (10/2) at noon to Friday (10/3) at noon. After this time, you will be able to start ordering from the NEW site. The site will look different from the old one, so do not panic if you see something different than what you are used to seeing: our layout will be different, our products will still be unchanged.

Key Features:
1. You will be able to change your password, credit card, mailing and billing
addresses easier.
2. Comments will be seen clearly in your order
3. Search engine is better equipped to find what you are looking for
4. Wish list option

Log In Procedure:
When logging into the NEW site, you will be using your current user name and password.

IF this does not work for you there are 2 steps for you to try.
1. Ask for a NEW password, this will be sent to the email that is on file for you, once you have used this you should be able to get into the site. IF this does not work for you please use Step 2.

2. You will need to Re-register COMPLETELY. Even though you could be a current customer, when we uploaded current customers into the new system, one or two of you could have been missed.

We realize that this switch might not go as perfectly as we want it to, so please be patient with us during this process. We will get everything corrected in a timely manner and get this site running smoothly.

Again thank you very much for your support and understanding,
Lisa and Primitive Gatherings Quilt Shop Staff


Buttermilk Basin..Pincushion…BOM?

We have completed all 12 of Buttermilk Basin Year of the Pinkeeps…

Do you we have enough interest to do these as a Pinkeep of the Month?  If you are interested please comment…OR If  you just want us to kit them separately we can do it that way…

If you sign up as a BOM we usually price it so you get 1 free, than if you would purchase them individually.

Waiting to hear your input!bb pincushions
