Historic Textile Event May 5th in Arrow Rock MO

I thought many of you might be interested in this exciting afternoon,planned dedicated to quilting,wool,rug hooking ,spinning, textiles etc,......Many nice demos and wonderful history!
I am planning on attending, so Primitive Stitches shop will be closed on that Saurday May 5th,
The shop will also be closed, as well on Thursday and Friday May 3-4th. I will be working at the Living History Days in Warsaw MO. It is a event that allows several hundred school age children to have a field trip and take a "step back into the 1800" and experience day to day living then. I am just thankful that I am abel to help partcipate in something that is so special to me.
Sorry for any inconvenience, the shop will re-open on Tuesday May 8th

Busy time at the Primitive Stitches booth !

Wow, what a turn out we had at the 6th annual  It's A Gathering, event this past weekend. I have included a picture of the booth before we opened the doors. What a great turn out we had. It was overwhelming, and as always, it seemed like everyone had a great time and enjoyed themselves. I tried to snap of few photos to share with you, but as you can see ,I did not have much time for photos, the booth was busy all day long, it seemed like there was wall to wall customers (not that I am complaining,lol)
Thanks to all of my loyal customers who visited my booth and to all of the new friends and customers that we just met at the show. It was so much fun !

Hope you all are enjoying your new projects ,
