Early Style Handwork Primitives

My name is Lisa DiIsso.

I am from Massachusetts. I am so 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 and Mom shared with me their 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, rug braiding, needle felting, doll making and quilting! 

Thank you so much for checking out my page! 

I accept Paypal.

This is a wonderful pattern by Notforgotten Farm. It is in an antique frame which measures 7 1/2" square. It is stitched on blue linen. US shipping will be $6.00. Thanks for checking out my items!
I had such fun making this piece! I partially finished a cross stitch sampler alphabet on linen. I then affixed a picture of a vintage girl. It is framed in a beautiful vintage frame from my collection. The frame measures 5 x 6". Free US shipping! Thanks for checking it out!

Up for your consideration is this sweet Patriotic Girl! It is from a pattern from Cinnamon Creek! So fun! She stands on a base. She measures 21" tall. She is aged and baked to perfection! US Shipping will be $10.00. Thanks for checking out my items!
Such a fun, embroidered pillow! It is large--it measures 9 x 11". It is embroidered on a beautiful, hand dyed linen. It is rag stuffed, giving it a nice weight. US shipping will be $6.00. Thank you for checking out my items! I would consider taking orders on this item. Just contact me at if you would like me to create one for you. Sold, thank you!
I know so many of you love chicken items! Here is a chicken pillow I created with an embroidered chicken. I then carefully trimmed the back fabric away and affixed it to this fun calico that looks like chicken wire! The pillow is rag stuffed giving it a nice weight. It measures 8" square. $5.00 US shipping. Thank you for checking out my items!
I love all patterns from The Wooden Nail! This fun 9" Uncle Sam doll is made with genuine antique 1800's calico. He would look great out year round or during the Patriotic holidays! US shipping will be $6.00. Thanks for checking out my items!
This is a wonderful, nicely made hanging basket I recently acquired. It measures 14" from the top of the handle to the bottom. It can hang or sit on its own. The embroidery is in a 5" hoop and attached to the basket. It comes complete with the prim flag and beautiful geraniums. US shipping will be $10.00. Thanks for checking out my items!
