Doreen Frost ~ Designer, Teacher & Merry Maker of Original Needle~Work Creations, Folky Fraktur Woole~Worked Animals & Needle Work Patterns.

I have always dreamed of owning my own business, working with my hands, creating what made my heart sing . Fifteen years ago that dream began to take shape. My business grew slowly at first and I have dabbled in many different art forms (which I still do from time to time :). Six years ago I decided to concentrate on my love of Punch Needle Embroidery. I did loads of research, purchased the tools & supplies, that I knew I would enjoy using, and taught myself everything I could (and felt I needed to know) about this wonderful needle art. In 2011, I began offering my original Punch Needle Embroidery designs and things just took off from there!! Over the years my business has grown tremendously. I now travel throughout New England teaching classes & giving workshops. I also hold small classes here, in our Vermont home in Autumn & Early Winter. Outside, the wind howls, crisp leaves fly past the windows & snow swirls about... inside, a cozy fire burns and a homemade meal is prepared..we settle ourselves with our hoop & needles and enjoy a day of learning, goode conversation, friends and food. Each day I give thanks for this wonderful life I live. ~ doreen

~Folk Art Punch Needle Club~


Goode Saturday Morning To You. I am so pleased to announce that my Folk Art Punch Needle Club is now OPEN and ready for members. :) 

I am so very excited to finally have this ready.  I've truly have had so much fun designing and planning this and I hope you will all love it and enjoy the club as much as I do.



Here is how the club will work....

(Photo to the left is the approx. size of the finished piece)

~One Year Membership~ 

Join me in creating this lovely Folk Art wall hanging adorned with early American Folk Art Motifs. Finished wall hanging, which includes a lovely welcome “topper”, four seasonal blocks and bottom banner, will measure approximately 10” x 21” when complete.  All designs will blend together, in look and color combination, to create one lovely wall hanging

Exclusive kit designs available only through membership and will not be available for purchase elsewhere. 


Full year membership includes SIX complete kits.  

**BEGINNERS ARE  ALWAYS WELCOME**

Photo below illustrates how I will be designing the wall hanging.  You can see the welcome topper and below it you will find four sections, which I will design into seasonal elements and then the bottom banner will tie it all together :)



Kits will ship as follows; 
February ~ Topper
April ~ Block#1
June ~ Block #2
August ~ Block #3
October ~ Block #4
December ~ Bottom Banner

Each kit will include; 
1 Fat quarter piece of weavers cloth with preprinted template.
All necessary floss (Valdani & Moire’ Wool Threads)
Complete Pattern will full instructions, reusable template, color chart and full color photo’s
All decoratively packaged for your stitching pleasure. :~)

You will need to provide the following; Cameo Punch Needle (with both small and medium needle tips) 14” Morgan Locking Lip Hoop or gripper frame Floss holder & Needle Threader

**Designs will vary in sizes however, I will print each template on a fat ¼ piece of weavers cloth so you will only need to purchase one size hoop and/or frame :~) 
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I've opened up a separate category, on the website, just for the club so its' easy to locate and find the information.  Just click on the tab in the top of the left hand column. :) I will also be opening up a new blog just for club members where we can meet, chat, ask questions and go over everything. :). 

Oh, I do hope you'll join us. If you have any questions, feel free to contact me. 

I'm always here. Hugs, Doreen
