    I confess that I have no clue what "american prim carft" is - can you point me to an example, maybe?

      I love American prim work but not every one gets it. I would love to incorporate this more in my own craft but not sure, I suppose I could add a number of pieces and see how it goes, particularly like the outline embroidery, simple but lovely.

      Good to hear there is someone else out there who is a fan

        Oh I love American prim, but not the too extreme ones. I belong to an Ebay group called Crows and Roses who sell handcrafted prim items and we also buy primitive items (blog address is in my signature).

                Nor me - can anyone give a sensible explanation?

                  Prim art is making anything in the primitive form, distressed for metal signage, tea or coffee stained for fabric etc. Items can look crudely finished and this is probably why not every one likes prim art. If you look at this site it will give you a better idea, explainations I know are not always clear.

                      Ohhhh... right! Now I understand.

                      I must admit that it's something I don't like at all, to be honest. I'd be really ashamed to put my name to stuff that looks so crudely & clumsily made and badly finished. I just don't "get it" at all... sorry. But then I don't understand what's art about the junk they call "modern art", either...

                      But I'm just one old-fashioned person, so what do I know? Have loadsa fun with it, eh!
                      Cheers,

                        I didn't know what it was either!! Had a look at the site and I really like some of it!!! In the past I have bought a few things from the lovely garden centre near us but didn't know what it was called!!! Sue xx

                          Glad to have helped Susie.

                          I understand Scorch I must admit I do not like all of the prim, very crudely made etc, but I like the general concept of the distressing etc. We can't all like the same things, wouldn't life and this forum be boring if we did!
