Month

May 2016

Its the Last day of our Anniversary Sale! Ends May 31st!

It is our 12th Anniversary this May 1!  It has definitely been a fun ride.  I have been with Primitive Gatherings for just about 10 years both part time and full time, and every day I thank the Lord that I can do something that I love, something that is a bit different every day, to have fun creating amazing products and getting to work with each and everyone of you!

We have been busy the last 2 weeks, loading new texture wools on our site, naming and creating 30 NEW wool colors, working on your Summer Block of the Week, printing our new Christmas Gatherings Books, and getting kits ready for the book.  whew……and…..we are preparing for a month long Anniversary Sale for you! Ok I might need to sit down now!

In honor of our 12th Anniversary we are doing our Annual Anniversary Sale, but we are changing it up a bit.  All Month you are going to be able to save on just about EVERYTHING in the Shop.  Instead of doing it by the week, May 1-31 we will have everything on sale at the same time!  There will be a few exceptions to what is on sale, but I am pretty sure you will be happy with everything that will be on sale! Because this encompasses so many aspects of our business we are unable to show the discount on your invoice, please know that we will apply all discounts to your order when we charge and ship your order to you. This Sale also only applies to Primitive Gatherings in Wisconsin. Thank you for understanding. Now whats on sale you are asking? Well……

All Books and Patterns that are In stock and regular price will be 25% off.  We do have to exclude the Chrismtas Gatherings Book, our Valdani Book and any pre-order books or patterns.

All In stock and regular price Fabric, minimum of a 1/2 yard cut will be 20% off.  This will exclude any pre-cuts (bundles, charms, jelly rolls, layer cakes) Its a great time to stock up on backings or to start a  new quilt project.

 

All Notions that are in stock and regular price will be 20%.  Excluding: Steam Stations, Jukes, Valdani, Dovo, and Light Panels.

We are including our Stella Edges in this promo for 20% off.  These are awesome lights to put on your desk to help you with your sewing or your cutting!  We have them in Black and in White.

And last but not least we will have all of our wool 25% off! Now is the time to stock up on wool for your wool projects that you are going to be doing this Summer!  We are excluding all bundles, scrap bags, charms and custom order wools.  Most of these already have a discount attached to the price so we are unable to offer double discounts.  We are however offering, if you would like to order 1 yard of a Custom ordered wool, you CAN recieve the 25% off that 1 Yard of Custom Dyed Wool.  There is no limit to the amount of wool that you are able to purchase. Our new wools will be up for ordering mid May. 

We will also be having a few great quilts on Sale as well.  Take a peak in our Anniversary Sale Section for all these great deals!  They will not be posted until May 1 for your ordering.

I hope you all have an amazing weekend!  It is sure to be busy for me….trying to get my new kitchen cabinets in this weekend! yay!

Do you “Believe”?

We are almost into our 6th month of the year!  Can you believe it?  I have no idea where this year has gone!  It has flown by pretty fast and even though we are just getting Spring like weather I know that in a couple month the Snow will be flying again.  But shhhhhhhh, I did not really say that, we have been known to get snow in May! Hope you all had a beautiful weekend, its a brand new week and we have great things planned for this week, so lets get started on one of those things!

We have a great NEW Block of the Month to bring to you from Lily Anna Stitches called Believe.  This wool on wool project will help you count down day of the Holiday Season with a Holiday Traditions Advent Calendar!

We are using a textured Hand Dyed Wool for the Red Background in this project. If you need something to hang your project on we have the option of purchasing the metal hanger.  The numbers on this project are Hand Made Clay Buttons with the dates printed on them, which you can purchase OR you can embroider the dates if you so choose.

The first month which starts in June (next month) will be $30+shipping, as you will receive your Background Wool the first month, the pattern is sold separately.  Then months 2-6 will only be $9+shipping! You will receive your last package in November, so that your Advent Calendar will be finished by the this Holiday Season!

I could say “Choose wisely” but with all of these yummy colors I don’t believe any one will ever say, “You choose poorly!” Can you tell I love me some Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade? This is my little Indy! Always in the way of my sewing!
