APRIL 7, 2018
Lots of new merchandise just arrived just in time for our Spring Open House this Thursday through Saturday, April 12-14!  Just back from an antiquing trip, we will have lots of new “old” stuff as well!  Our angel vine plants arrived and another shipment of clay pots are coming this week.  And of course, we will have door prizes, refreshments, fun and 10% off all purchases (antiques and items marked firm not included) and did I mention FUN!
We still have two spaces available for the applique workshop and a couple for the  rug hooking workshop.  Deadline is Friday to sign up!  If you have missed the  information for these, call the store for details.
The Applique Workshop is  May 3-5  and the rug hooking workshop is May 7-9.  We will also have Maggie’s  new book, Pure and Simple, and she will gladly sign your copy while she is here.  Reserve your copy now by calling us @
We will be posting some classes for rug hooking and wool applique soon.  We will send more information in the next week or so.
The grands had a fun Easter  (and so did granny).
I know you wanted to see all my pictures, but I just am sharing two today.  🙂
Come see us soon.

Maggie Bonanomi Workshops

MARCH 23, 2018
We still have a few spaces available for the rug hooking and applique workshops.  We need to know ASAP if you are going to take one of these as Maggie needs time to draw off your designs for the rug hooking workshop and she needs to kit your project for the applique class.
The Applique Workshop will  be  May 3-5  and May 7-9 for rug hooking workshop.  We will also have her new book and she will gladly sign your copy if you’d like her to.  Reserve your copy now by calling us @ 719-388-8878.
The 3 Day Applique Workshop will be $200.00 plus the cost of the  kit (pattern, wool, freezer paper and thread) which will be $110.00.   The design is Urn with Flag (The hooked version is pictured below).   While Maggie has offered this as a rug hooking pattern in the past, she has never done it in applique.  It’s a beauty for sure!  The applique piece will be a variation of the hooked piece…not an exact replica.     You will need to bring applique pins, #24 Chenille Needle and  sharp scissors.

The 3 Day Rug Hooking Workshop will be $200.00 plus the cost of your rug hooking pattern drawn on linen.  You will be able to choose from a great selection of patterns   by Maggie.  Her rug patterns range from $35-$190 depending on your choice of design.  The Urn with Flag pictured above is just one of the many  choices you may select.  No wool is provided so you will either bring your own wool, choose from Maggie’s great selection of wool  or from Gathering’s wool.  Maggie is great at color and will help everyone color plan their rug.   You will also need to furnish a rug hooking frame, hook and scissors.   Although Maggie teaches the cut and tear method of strips, a cutter will be available for your use in class if you choose to cut your strips instead.
Info for Both workshops:  $200 deposit is due
upon sign up.  Your balance will be due
April 25th.   The $200 deposit is  nonrefundable.    We will break for 30-45 minutes each day for lunch on your own or with the group.  Lunch is not included in price.
Maggie is a great teacher and is so enjoyable that you will not want to miss one of these workshops!  Sign up soon as class space is limited.   719-388-8878.
Watch for our Spring Open House coming up  April 12-14. More information soon!  Thanks for your support of Gatherings. See you soon!
Lauri,  and the Gatherings’ girls!
