The day is finally here! The day that we have been working so hard to bring you for the past month and a half! All the projects and goodies that you see on this page and under out Primitive Christmas Category have been a cumulation of weeks of hard work between Lisa, the Warehouse and the Ladies at the Shop. We love putting this Event on for you and can’t wait to see what you all think!
Just a little information before we get into all the good stuff. Just like every year there is a minimum purchase in order to receive our FREE goodies. PLEASE READ EVERYTHING CAREFULLY before you go and place your order.
This is IMPORTANT: If you are planning on coming to either the Wisconsin or the California Shop for our Event, Please check to see the times in which each Shop is open. In Wisconsin we are OPEN during our REGULAR Shop hours, we have not changed them for this Event November 21-24. This means that even though the Event goes until Sunday at Midnight, you will only have until Saturday Evening at 4pm to come into the Shop. You will be able to Shop Online until Midnight on November 24th. Thank you

You will find all the projects and goodies on our site under NEW ITEMS and then there will be a little icon that says Primitive Gatherings and 2019 Christmas Open House underneath it, click on there and you will see EVERYTHING! or click on this whole paragraph when youare done reading everything and it will take you there!
What Freebies will you be receiving this year?
Everyone who purchases $30 or more will receive a pattern and a kit for this awesome pincushion which comes in a Light and Dark Version. You can distinguish the different between the two by the backgrounds, if the wool is the dark blue as the background it is the Dark Version, if the background is cream, that is the Light Version. We have Sand available ($3) for purchase if you would like to have one so that it is there with you when you are ready to finish your project. Your free kit will be selected at random, and will automatically be put into your package when it is sent, meaning you DO NOT have to put it into your cart to receive it. If you would like to make more of these kits you will be able to purchase them for $6.50. If you are purchasing for a friend and would like for them to be able to make it, we also have patterns available for you to purchase. ONCE AGAIN, you do not have to purchase or put the pattern in your cart if it is only for you; it will automatically go into your package.
You will also be receiving the pattern for the Santa Stitchery (16″x 17″). There are two ways to finish the Santa Stitchery, you can hang it in a Frame, which we do have available for $30.00 or you can make it into a pillow. If you would like to make it into a pillow we have a kit available for that that will also include a zipper, and of course if you would like a pillow form we have that too!
Our Peace, Love, Joy Pillow (18″x 18″) is one of my favorites this Open House! The cutouts on the letters is what I love the best. We have a kit available for $20.00 that includes the zipper; there are also Pillows available as well for you.
Last but certainly not least is our Santa in the Pines Quilt and Runner. Our Santa in the Pines Quilt will finish at 58″ x 70″ which is perfect for a quilt to snuggle up with this Holiday Season. We will have 2 versions of this quilt. One is our Modern Version which features Bella Solids and the other will be our Primitive Versions which features our Primitive Gatherings Muslin. Both of these quilts are sure to be a hit with your friends and family. We have created our trees using the Loc-Block Half Rectangle Ruler, these rulers make it easy to square up your blocks for perfect Half Rectangles. I know, I know it seems a bit complex, but I assure you it is not. If you can sew two pieces of fabric together you can surely do this quilt. As you an see our Primitive Version is still on the machine to get quilted, we wanted to show you the colors so you had an idea of what it looks like.
Santa in the Pines Runner is (16″ x 48″) and is done just like the quilt using the Loc-Bloc Half Rectangle Ruler. The Runner and the Quilt are sold separately from each other so you can choose to do one or both of these festive projects. Just like the Quilt the Runner is sold in 2 different version.
Those are your Freebies this year. Shall we move on to the Make and Takes?
Make and Takes
Bring yourself, a friend, a family member, your husband or wife, and even a child to make our Make and Takes this year. If you are going to be coming to the Wisconsin Shop we will have Make and Takes on Thursday and Friday, all day until 2:30. Come in and make a set of these ornaments to take home or give away. They are 2 sided porcelain ornaments that you will be making. If you are coming into the Shop we ask that if you are able to please bring in a sharpe scissors for use in the Make and Takes. Each of the sets are a set of 3 and you get to pick which set you would like to make! We hope to see you downstairs in the classroom this year!
When you are ordering online you will choose each the pattern for the ornaments based on the letter next to the set of 3 that it corresponds to.
Many of you Pre-Ordered your mugs with us last month, and we “Thank You” for doing that. This allowed us to order what we needed, and a little more and not have the worry of sitting on a bunch of Mugs. For those of you that did not pre-order your mugs we do have some available for you, however, we can not guarantee that we will have enough to cover everyone. In the event that we will have to order the mugs, we will not be able to guarantee them before Christmas, these mugs are $26.00. These mugs are handcrafted in Wisconsin just down the road from our Shop! Each mug is 4 ½” tall, can hold 16 ounces and are microwave, dishwasher and oven safe.
Are there more NEW designs?
Of course there are more. When Lisa gets on a roll, she gets on a roll.
Winchester Rose (21″x 21″) is named after a small town out where Lisa lives. While this project is red, white and green, it also does not scream Christmas. We think that this little project deserves be hung up year around in the house. Just a little appliqué turns this quilt into a must have. Our Triangle Papers are included in the pattern to make your half square triangles that much easier!
Life of a Snowman (5″ x 5″) is a continuation of our series of Seasons on a Stand. Our Pumpkin pattern was a big hit this Fall and many of you asked for more…so here they are. The Snowman with the Snowkid and Bird is my favorite one. All 3 patterns are in 1 pattern and you can make them all with our kit! And of course we have those white stands available, purchase 3 to display them all! If you purchase 3 stand we are giving you a discount, so just a little something to think about.
Amy made our Antique Christmas Past quilt that finishes at 49 1/2″ square. This smaller quilt is based off of a much larger Antique Quilt that we have in the Studio. This quilt would be darling on a table, hanging on a wall or draped over a couch.
We also have a darling set of 6 ornaments designed by Old Green Cupboard for you. Each ornament size will vary, the largest being just under 6″ tall. Make all 6 with the kit!
Goodies and Cheer!
There are some cute little goodie bags that have been put together. These will make great stocking stuffers for you and your sewing friends.
Our tins are great as Stocking Stuffers for you to put little items in for your loved ones and friends.
Our Ruler Valdani Boxes are always a hit every year. This year we made up 4 new color skems, playing on our Snowflake and In the Pines themes we seem to have going..
And as always we have our little wool logs, and this year we have expanded them to a blue and white color!
There are so many more amazing products Online and at the Shop than we can put on here. So why don’t I stop typing so that you can go and see them all for your self??? We hope you enjoy our Christmas Open House this year. We have worked long and hard on it to bring you some amazing gift items and products! We hope to see you at the Shop or Online!
