Missouri Star Shop Feature: Primitives & Wool

Take a quick look inside and hear from our associate >

I often wonder what it would have been like to be part of the colonies that first settled into America. To be apart of something so revolutionary and new. I know women don’t serve such a big part in the history books, but without them, we wouldn’t have the Americana fabric style of today! To be part of the making of such pretty prints, now that would be cool!

“Primitive,” or “Early Americana” emerged from women within the first colonies here in the “New World.” It began when they realized they no longer had to keep up with the trends in Europe and could get creative in the making of new American fads. Everyday necessities such as clothing, furniture, and children’s toys became a canvas for decorative stitching and designs.

Today, folk artists use modern elements to create an antiquated look. At Missouri Star Quilt Co., we have a shop filled with these primitive-inspired fabrics. From muted browns and blacks, to woven gingham, and brilliant star and rag-doll patterns, Primitive & Wool has it all!

As you walk along the walls of muted color, it would seem candles light your way with eighteenth century-inspired lights that hang from an adorned, gold ceiling.

Antique wagons, galvanized tubs, and homemade barn-wood shelves hold merchandise ready for the taking!

Precuts and fabric by the yard go quick, but don’t forget to shop the rustic looking panels and fat quarters!

And if you’re are wondering where you can find some embroidery thread, Primitive & Wool, is where you’ll make your stop. Plus, this unique store is also where we have our wool kits stored. Pick one up and make something cozy-cute!

Make your way to Quilt Town, USA and shop your favorite primitive prints in Primitive & Wool! For even more old-school styles, check out the Missouri Star Mercantile for Civil War era reproductions and 1930’s-inspired fabrics!

Tell us about your primitive themed quilts, furniture, home decor, and other rustic-y projects. What is your favorite thing about Americana?
