We are moving the shop !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Greetings all,

I just wanted to take this time to let everyone know a few new exciting happenings that are occurring here at Primitive Stitches Quilt Shop.As you all probably know, we are moving the shop to a new location that we built, just down the road from where we are located now.  The new address is 34 SW 365 Rd  Wbg MO 64093

We are taking this time over the Christmas Holiday to start packing and moving the shop, I am not sure how long this will take....I have tons of stuff to move and "re-arrange" a million times, lol .

Opening Date should be Jan. 2nd. We will have to see how quick it goes, I will let you know for sure ! The phone number will be the same, so you are always welcomed to call !

For those who know Warrensburg area, it is about 1 mile South on Hwy 13 .
You turn RIGHT on the Last Road BEFORE the roundabout. It is called South Division Road. There are already 3 wooden signs located there for 2 churches (Harvest Fellowship Church, and New Life Pentecostal ) and the Mini Adventures Daycare. This is a Dead End Road, so once you get on this road, the next road off of this road is a RIGHT turn on road 365 -THAT IS ME!    All the way down til the very end of the road --last driveway on the left . Large 2 story brown metal building with green roof.

We will be getting signs up as soon as possible, it depends on the weather and how hard or frozen the ground is, to dig.( Let's hope it does not freeze too much)

Shop Hours will still be the same , and don't forget the shop IS  -- CLOSED ON SUNDAYS  AND MONDAYS !

During this time that we are moving, if there is something that you are in need of, you can always call and leave a message, I will try my best to work with you, if it is something I can get it to you, either by meeting you or leaving it  for you to pick up, and you can send me payment later  or mailing it to you. Just let me know, I will try to do what I can to help you out.

Last but not least, I want to take this time to wish you all a very Merry and Wonderful Christmas to you and your families.  I hope you take every minute of this Holiday to enjoy your time together with those near and dear to you!

Thank you for your loyal patronage to the shop all of these years and all of the support you have provided to me thru this year. Without you all, I would not be able to continue doing what I love and to be expanding with the addition of the new shop !

  I am truly Blessed.

 Thank You, Melissa

P.S.     As a shameless plug, if you know any of your friends or fellow quilter's who might not get my email or know about the move....Can you please pass this info on to them....I don't want anyone to get lost trying to find me,and wonder where I went , lol

Been down in the mouth, but time to get back up again !

Thank you everyone who has been checking on me and my dreaded ordeal with the oral surgeon. I am sorry that I have been out of the shop for a couple of days.. Hopefully things are starting to look up, I just need to have more patience. (I'm a better nurse than patient, so to speak). I was told that some people just take longer to heal, and since I have been on a lot of steroids and antibiotics  lately for my throat and ear, plus they were treating me with them this summer for Lyme's  , that those really have slowed down my healing process. They also did take out the sutures, since they had not dissolved yet, because he thought they might be cause some irritation to the gums. So Keep w/ salt water rinses and antibiotics and give it time!   I am just anxious to go, I will be open in the shop on Wed. but then closed on Thursday to go again to set up for a big show on Fri. and Sat.  Got lots to do .....Yikes

Lots of work completed at the new shop this weekend !

Wow, What a productive weekend at the new shop/house site. We got so accomplished this weekend, I can't believe it. I know I promised photos, but I was too busy working to take any, but will try to take and post some within a few days. We now have about 80% of the wood floor in the shop laid, just need to finish the rest ,then sand and stain, and add top coat. Got the overhead light and shower ins...talled in the main bathroom in the house along with the ceiling fan in the family room, and another ceiling light. Had the Heat-A/C units installed in the shop. All the first floor plumbing inside is completed, just waiting for the water company to install the water meter this week! Whew. I think that is everything, I am worn out.

I just wanted to let you know that I am sorry for the delay in getting the Primitive Quilts & Projects magazine. I had called a couple of times, and was always told that the had already been shipped, but that's all the info I could get. I finally got thru to the shipping dept. and come to find out they did track them down, and they were shipped , but sent to another shop that was some other shop named primitive something or other???

Anyway, I appreciate your patience for those who are still waiting for a copy, but they promised they are shipping another order out today,via UPS, and I should get them very soon, usually just a few days. I will send out an email when I get them in.
Sorry for the delay, I heard this issue has some really cute projects, so I am anxious to see it also,
