It is such a bummer that this year we must have our Primitive Christmas Event (primitivegatherings.us) this year. This is the Event that we all look forward to the most at the Shop! We love seeing each and everyone of you come out and “oohhh and ahh” over everything that we have done to make this event a success. It almost feels bah-humbug that we do not get to see you all, have our make and takes and of course have those COOKIES! (I, jessica, personally live off those for like 3 days straight! Lol.)
Despite all the changes that we have had to make for this Event, I think this is going to be one of our BEST yet! We literally have dozens of designs from Lisa to share with you all. Some of these products a few of you might recognize from our being in our exclusive Wool Subscription Boxes. We are releasing about a dozen of those patterns and kits to everyone for the first time. (Openings for the Wool Box starting in January will be up the first of December) We also will have just about a dozen NEW designs from Lisa that none of you have ever seen….unless you have been following her on our Stitch With Lisa Bongean Facebook Page, where she has given you a sneak peak at some of the designs. And I think you can agree with me that they are bound to put the Holiday Spirit into you!
Lets get down to business! PLEASE READ CAREFULLY AS SOME THINGS HAVE CHANGED!!
This is IMPORTANT: If you are planning on coming to our Wisconsin Shop for the Event….YOU CAN’T! 😦 WE ARE CLOSED UNTIL DECEMBER 2! This Event is All Virtual this year, our Shop is small and we can not social distance properly, therefor we have chosen to keep you and our employees safe by doing our event virtual. If you are local and place an order with us and would like to pick up your order when we reopen, please put that in the comment section and we will call you when your order is ready to be picked up.
Where Will you find Everything?
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 Christmas Event, click on that and you will be whisked away to Santa’s Primitive Gatherings Workshop!
How do I get the freebies this year?
Here is where somethings change from previous years. This year when you spend $40 or more you will receive a collection of freebie patterns, a kit for our pincushion New Beginnings and a coupon book for the coming years sales exclusive to YOU. (excludes BOMs, Pre-orders, American Gatherings) This year we are doing downloadable patterns for all of our freebies and coupon book, by doing so you will receive 1 MORE FREE Pattern as a “Thank You” for not having to print all of the papers that normally went into your package, you do not need to do anything they will automatically come to you. You will receive the Downloads as soon as we process your order….you will receive a message from us on how to find your downloads. Now if you still would like a hard copy of the freebies and coupon book you will need to put that in your cart so that we know to send those to you. You will find the hard copy under the Primitive Christmas Icon…it is called 2020 Primitive Christmas Event Hardcopy of Free Patterns (primitivegatherings.us). Just a REMINDER though, you will receive 1 LESS free pattern.
What are the Free kit and Patterns this year?
You will receive one Free pattern and kit for the deer pincushion called New Beginnings. 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 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.
Donner is our super cute reindeer leading our Primitive Christmas Event this year. Donners antlers are too big for the project and go right off the project! He is 7.5″ x 12.5″ when finished, we have 2 different ways to finish him. Scottie has made a white wash board that you can hang on the wall or one that you can have him sit on a table with our white wash stand. Both you will be able to find in his product information.
Happy Holiday Pillow has the classic Christmas look with a blue-grey background and a white and taupe wool applique and stitching. I could also see the Happy Holiday pillow as a framed piece as well!
Merry and Bright Christmas Quilt is 60″x70″ and uses a wide variety of Christmas fabric that we have available at the Shop. We used 2 1/2″ triangle papers to create all of the half square triangles in this quilt.
If you choose to download the patterns this year and NOT get a hard copy you will also be receiving the pattern for We Three Gnomes!!! If you do not want to download and want a Hard Copy from us, this pattern is available to purchase.
We also have so many other projects on the site that you are going to love. I just wanted to give you all an overview on how the program is working this year.
Please let us know by email if you have any questions, we would be happy to help you any way we can!
thank you, jessica and the primitive gatherings staff
