Early Style Handwork Primitives

My name is Lisa DiIsso.

I am from Massachusetts. I am honored to be a member of Primitive Handmades Mercantile! My passion is creating art that our grandmothers would have done on a daily basis out of necessity! My grandmother, Delia, shared with me her love of knitting and crocheting! I love all things old and primitive!  You never know what you might find on my offerings page!  I love it all--cross stitch, embroidery, needle and rug punching, rug hooking, doll making and quilting! 

Thank you so much for checking out my page!
