Primitive Stitchery Patterns & E-Patterns
Primitive and Folk Stitchery/Embroidery Patterns and E-Patterns
~~Welcome to Primitive Stitches~~
 We are glad that you stopped by. I hope that your time spent here is enjoyable.
At this site, we design primitive and folkart hand stitchery patterns for the beginner as well as the experienced stitcher at affordable prices. 
 We create designs for Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall as well as Everyday.   We also have pattern categories for most large holidays such as Christmas, Easter and Halloween as well as your favorite categories such as sayings, samplers and snowmen.

We sell epatterns which are sent by email or card stock patterns that are sent to your home.  All of our patterns come complete with detailed instructions for embroidery, and a supply/floss list.

Our patterns can also be used as a painting guide for those who prefer to paint rather than stitch. Unfortunately, I do not include directions for painting.   We do have a  few  painting patterns created by Sharon Bond which can be found at our Machine Embroidery site,

  which carries some of our machine embroidery as well as our other site, Primitive Keepers which also carries machine embroidery designs.  

If you are interested in instant downloads, you may visit our hand embroidery/machine embroidery site, Primitive Stitches at Etsy or our other machine embroidery site, Primitive Keepers at Etsy.

You may sell your finished items on-line, in websites, shoppes, or at craft shows. You may not mass produce (factory quantities) the finished product. You may also enlarge or decrease a pattern to fit your needs.

Pattern credit is now required when selling your finished items!!!

My thanks to Barb Wilson who beautifully hand stitched so many designs for me and was my first stitcher and Kim Orcutt, of Etsy's Shoppes-Stitchez FromThe Heart, for her talentedly stitched items.  Thanks to both for the pictures of their beautiful work!!!
