TPM - Traditional Primitives - Missie Carpenter

Missie Carpenter Missie Carpenter of Traditional Primitives has been sewing in one form or another since she was about 10 years old. Starting with tiny clothes for her Wishnick Troll Doll, she moved on to Clothing Construction and English Smocking when her children were young, and now has a passion for Quilting. Majoring in Fashion Merchandising at the University of Missouri, she was exposed to Design using fabric and drawing, and has stuck with it ever since. She has found her favorite style of stitching and settled on Applique, Wool Applique, Punchneedle and English Paper Piecing (using her own method of basting English Paper Piecing with Starch). Her design style is traditional with a touch of prim and she has a unique way of using busy cottons and wools to create quilts, wall hangings and other projects. Patterns for her designs are available on her website, and she has an informative blog,, which explains her unique techniques of construction. Missie enjoys sharing her knowledge with quilting students and wants each student to find ways to make the process easy and enjoyable for each person, offering options as she teaches.
