Lisa Bongean

Menasha, Wisconsin

Lisa-BongeanKnown world-wide for her primitive style in quilting, Lisa Bongean calls Menasha, WI home. This is where it all happens for Primitive Gatherings and the customers that have grown to love Lisa’s primitive and folk art designs featuring her hand-dyed wools, homespun, reproduction and designer fabrics.

Lisa’s talents are many: proud mother of three sons, designer, teacher, award winning quilter, shop owner, and business woman partnered with her husband, Nick. In addition to the retail shop, Lisa and Nick stay busy with their wholesale and internet business as well as traveling to and vending at numerous quilt shows across the country. Primitive Gatherings, their family-owned business, opened in 2004 and continues to grow adding their newest venture in January, 2011….”The Gathering”, a quilters’ retreat house located less than one mile north of the shop.

Primitive Gatherings was elected by the editors of American Patchwork & Quilting Magazine as one of the outstanding quilt shops in North America and featured in the 13th annual Quilt Sampler, a special publication from the American Patchwork & Quilter Magazine.

As a designer for Moda, Lisa embraces opportunities to reach out to quilters everywhere offering them beautiful new fabrics designed especially for creating her primitive and folk art designs.
