Our “Girl Clubs” are fun to belong to because they are a way of gifting yourself with a unique new and exciting handwork project that most people don’t have. It will most likely pertain to the upcoming season or holiday. We try to keep our projects exclusive and partner with our favorite designers so you know you will have something that is one of a kind.
I hope you will find your new clubs very enjoyable and if you have not tried one I hope you will give us a call 608-588-2510.
For anyone joining clubs please read carefully:
It is your responsibility to call us if you change your credit card number or have had it compromised or have a new address. Please , if we call you once, call us back to let us know if you have any changes or wish to be taken off the club. We do not want to make call after call and never hear from you. If we have to call you more than twice and not hear from you, you will be taken out of the club. I’m sure you can understand that this can become a problem for us and we must figure out when enough is enough. Thank you for being mindful.
Just when you think you have seen it all! It’s time for us to dream up something new for you to love. I have been thinking about this idea for the past three months and the shop girls already have been working on projects we were thinking might fit this idea. We are all in now and I am ready to see if I can peak your interest and get you tied to the past with us.
Introducing our Newest Girl Club for 2016!
“Esther Iddison 1832 Sampler” This sampler is stitched with wool threads on a 29 or 30 count linen. We will have four shipments and that is where the sew along idea comes in. More info will follow but I thought you would love to see an actual picture of the antique Linda is reproducing for this club. We can’t wait to hear from you!
“Tied to the Past”
The name of this New Girl Club tells the story. These are all quilts from the past and they are tied quilts. The thing is, we are adding textures, quilting the quilts our way but all of the quilts are also tied. It is interesting to see how wonderful they all look. Just when you thought you were over the look, we think you will embrace the way we have brought the quilts back to life with a new purposefu
l look for today’s decor. There will only be four shipments per year.
The first quilt offering is a wonderful antique
“Bow Tie” quilt Suzanne owns. It measures out to be 46″ x 60″. We used our cotton velvet, Silk Matka, Homespun, Wool, Cotton Linen, and we know how you love our great Textured Fabric so we included that too. We have also changed our cotton batting to help us accomplish the look we were going for. We just picked the yarn needed today for our ties so you can not see the ties yet but you will soon. The kits are ready and the pattern will be ready soon so we are opening registration today and hope you will chose to join us. This is going to be a great adventure for us all. I love the idea we will be staying with the Country Style we love which today fits Rustic, Classic, Vintage and Romantic decors. We are ready to ship your last project for 2015. It looks like it was Tied to the Past and just surfaced out of the steamer trunk. Here is a a few peeks. You can expect to find it in your mail boxes this week December 12th. I hope you enjoy these great old heirloom pieces we are creating for your enjoyment. Suzanne created this great worn and loved quilt for you.
2016 “PRIM SISTER“
Prim Sister will begin shipping in March 2016. There are 4 shipments per year. The needlework pictured is from 2015. Linda has some great plans for the new year that will keep you loving her Prim Designs so please join us for a year of great Prim Sister fun.
Linda Thraen was a new face to our club members in 2013 and she has not disappointed any of us. Her company is called: “The Pinkeep”. We all had the great pleasure of actually meeting her as she attended our Boxwood & Berries Gathering in 2013 and she was a guest designer at the 2014 Boxwood & Berries Gathering sharing the teaching responsibilities with Maggie Bonanomi .
Our last design for 2015 from “The PinKeep” came just in time for the holidays. I know everyone has lovedtogether all of her past designs. The “1872 Thread Keep and Pinkeep” was stitched on 30 count Weeks Straw with overdyed threads, wool, fabric, rings and ribbon all included . Here is a picture of Linda’s “Sarah Hand’s Simple House”.
Time for Christmas and that is just what Linda’s project is all about’ it is called “Home for the Holidays”. Everyone enjoyed this great primitive pinkeep drum.
2016 club begins in February – this is a quarterly club and we have openings.
The first NEW project for 2016 is here!
Our newest auto just arrived just in the Nick of time, it’s called “December 25th Pinkeep”! We are all loving this one as we have never seen Stacy do a snowman. He’s a keeper! We started shipping them out today December 7th, 2015. If you have a little Christmas time break he will be a quick piece of handwork to work on or take on your trip. Merry Christmas to all and thank you from all of us for participating in our Girl Clubs this year. There are a few kits left if you would like to own one of these.
We have room in this club to take on new members so this would be a great way to get started in this amazing and fun Girl Club. The cost of this kit is $40.00. If you are interested in joining our 2016 Club please give us a call.

Now that is what I call girl power! Thank you all for your confidence in us and Stacy’s wonderful primitive designs. This is Stacy’s newest offering for 2013. We have almost got all of our club members kits shipped but we are still taking new members in her club. We hope you love this club and decide to be a part of it.
