Can you believe that the year is almost done? That next week will be Thanksgiving and we are already only be 41 days away from Christmas! Holy cow! Where did the year go I wonder? This is one of the first years that I haven’t done ANYTHING yet for the Holidays. You all are probably going….”ok Jess, it is time for you to tell us all about the Primitive Christmas Event”. So I will waste no more of your time, here it goes.
We anticipate our Primitive Christmas Event, just as much as you do each year. We look forward to spreading the cheer and all the new projects that we come up with. As we do every year there is a minimum purchase to receive all of the goodies. Make sure you READ everything CAREFULLY before you go and place your order.
PLEASE READ CAREFULLY: 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 15-18. 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 Sunday November 18th. Thank you!
Are we ready to have some fun?? When purchasing $30 or more of regular, in stock items between the dates of November 15-18, you will receive 4 FREE patterns to do, our stuffed gingerbread men, a pillow, 4 designs for towels and a pattern and kit for a pincushion PLUS a Coupon Book; with all of the great sales coming up this year! By using those Coupon Books, each time you have a chance to win a $25.00 Gift Certificate.

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. 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 $6.00. 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 this simple and classic ‘Tis the Season Pillow. This pillow will finish at 13 1/2″ x 20 1/2″, we will have kits, pillows, and threads available for you. Note the pennies are NOT pre-cut, but we do have the circle template available to make it easy for you to make the pennies.
A bowl full of Gingerbread men are just what the doctor ordered. Ok, maybe not really, but they would look amazing on your head table during the Holidays, or sitting next to the fireplace! You will also be receiving the Stuffed Gingerbread man pattern, for all 3 sizes when you make your $30.00 purchase. We have kits available for a whole set, small, medium and large….and we also have them available individually if you would like to make a bowl full!
OH SNAP! There are a FEW GOOD MEN! lol! Lisa is also going to be giving you the patterns for 4 towels! These towels are awesome, they are 100% cotton, are durable and wash up amazingly! You can order the Set of 4 Towels for $15.00, or purchase them individually for $4.50.
That sums up the Freebies that you will be receiving when you make your $30.00 purchase, so in total you will really be getting 7 FREE patterns!
Make and Take
Bring yourself, a friend, a family member, even a child to this years Make and Take. There was no easy way to do a stackable like we did the last few years in the shape of a Gingerbread man so we had to come up with something a little different. We came up with these awesome wood cut out Gingerbread men! In Wisconsin you can come in any time from 9:30-4 on Thursday and Friday and for $8.00 you can come and make these cute little ornaments for your tree. The thread is included in the kits, we will provide the needle. Please call California for their Make and Take times if you are planning on heading out to the Shop there.
It is our 5th in the series of Holiday mugs from us. Have you been collecting them through the years? If so, we have the next one to add to your collection. This year, as you probably have already guessed, is a Gingerbread Man! 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. This year the Mugs are $19.50, they should retail for $24.00, but we want everyone to be able to purchase them if they would like one. There will be an additional shipping charge on the mugs, as we need to purchase extra packaging materials to ensure that the mugs get to you safely and intact. We have ordered more mugs than we ever have before in hopes that we are able to send out everyone’s mugs right away with your order. (no seriously we did, our Shop overfloweth with gingerbread mugs, yes pun intended)
Do we have more you ask?
Yes, of course we have more! When we put a little pressure on Lisa, she creates, creates and creates! And of course everything is amazing! This year we had to have everything done before we went to Market and Festival in Houston because the dates were pushed back.
Reindeer Games is a beautiful, classic, modern feeling mat done on a cream textured background. I LOVE the deer in this mat! 18 inches round and only $40.00 for kit and pattern!
Like Father, Like Son is the cutest darn pillow you will ever see! On a red flannel plaid background this pillow measures 16″x16″ when complete, the back of the pillow is provided for you as well in the kit. Do you need a pillow, we have that as well in the drop down box, we are using an 18″x18″ pillow so that your pillow is overstuffed and you can see the whole project once you have completed it.
A simple and sweet stitchery is just the thing to complete your Holiday decorating. We Wish you Stitchery is only 13″ x 15″ once it has been framed and will look amazing where ever you wish to put it up. Frames available.
Our Gingerbread Recipe Guy can be done 2 different ways. There is enough flannel in the kit to back and bind him, or you can but him into a frame. The Gingerbread man is 12″x 28″ once he is finished, he is made up of mostly flannel, only the icing and eyes on him are wool! We have frames available as well if you would like to frame him.
Last but certainly not least is our Bakers Dozen Ornaments pattern and kits. These little guys go onto a “button” and are 3D. They will look just as charming flat if you do not want to put them on the buttons. We have a limited supply of these buttons so make sure if you would like them to order the buttons right a way. They will be removed when we are out. Kit and Pattern is only $32.00 for the wool and fabric used to create them, we have a package of 13 buttons for you available at $40.00 or you can purchase them individually if you are only going to be making only a few for $4.29/button. Do you see the awesome cording on these ornaments? We have thread kit available for those and a tool to help you make them. HINT: If you have a pinkin blade for your rotary cutter in helps too in making the backs of the ornaments.
We also have some great kits and patterns available for you from other designers that the ladies at the Shop have been working hard on for you!
And we have some cute little Valdani Boxes for Gifts….for only $20.00.
We hope that you have a wonderful time during our Event, and have found something to bring some cheer into your sewing room! Since you have read everything in this post you are now more than welcome to make your order! Thank you for reading!
Have a beautiful Holiday,
