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

~Thoughts, Things & Happenings~


Goode Day everyone.  I hope this post finds you well.  I am enjoyiong the warmth of the fire as I work on this sunny & cold March day in Vermont.  The sap is running slowly..more trickle than drip really but the sun is strong and things should be "running" smoothly soon.  Our weather has been so sporadic lately, it's hard to predict what might be in store.


SPEAKING OF WHAT MIGHT BE IN STORE..  After doing this year's taxes and realizing, once again, that my Etsy shop is out selling my website; I believe I have finally made the decision to close my website and sell exclusively through my Etsy Shop.  Many of you, my wonderful customers,  have told me, you enjoy my website for the homey look and feel that it offers..especially when you compare it to the look of the Etsy shops as they tend to be rather generic and simple.  Have no fear however, as I've added the same background and such here on my blog and I will be, once again, posting daily on my blog and will be doing & giving it all the little personal touches that you found cozy and homey on my website.  I will also be kicking up my activity with my newsletter ..keeping you "in the know", sharing what I am working on as well as recipes and new offering updates.  I will still hold web shows..but they will now be offered through My Etsy Shop.  I think I can make it work.....fingers crossed for me... :~)


I'm off now to brew a fresh pot of coffee and finish off the rest of this tax time paperwork..I can't handle it hanging over my head any longer

Wishing you a merry day ~ doreen
