About us

Hi, my name is Tracey Keim and I'm the creative mastermind behind Primitive Stitches! All of my patterns are my own design and are handmade and/or handpainted. I love to come up with new ideas, and add new items to my variety of products on a regular basis.

I began sewing 27 years ago when I was pregnant with my son. I started off doing craft shows in New Hampshire under the name Bunches O' Bunnies and eventually changed to Primitive Country. I then went wholesale for a while, but resumed working at craft shows after I moved to Florida to promote my business. 

Living here on the Florida coast, I began a sealife collection to go along with my country primitives. I go to shows
2-3 times a week, and love the seasonal shows in the area. I have a shop at Seacrest called "Creatively Bent" in Panama City Beach, Fl that carries my sealife line, and I appear at the St. Andrews Farmers Market on Saturdays.
