About Us

HEART CREEK FARM CREATIONS STARTED IN 2007 OUT OF MY LOVE OF ANTIQUE HOOKED RUGS AND ANTIQUE QUILTS.  I FOUND MINIATURE PUNCH NEEDLE AS A METHOD THAT I COULD CONTINUE TO HOOK RUGS IN MINIATURE VERSIONS WITH MUCH LESS EQUIPMENT NEEDED TO CARRY WITH ME AS WE TRAVEL TO EXHIBIT AT ANTIQUE SHOWS, MY HUSBAND, TOM AND I ARE ALSO ANTIQUE DEALERS.

SINCE 2007, I HAVE SOLD MY FINISH FRAMED PIECES AND COMPLETED LOTS OF CUSTOM PIECES.  BECAUSE I HAD BEEN ASKED OFTEN TO SELL MY PATTERNS, I DECIDED IN 2011 TO PACKAGE MY DESIGNS IN PATTERNS AND KITS AND BEGAN SETTING UP AT QUILT SHOWS ACROSS THE COUNTRY.  IT HAS BEEN A GREAT BEGINNING AND NOW WE ARE READY TO LAUNCH OUR WEB SITE TO REACH EVERYONE WITH AN INTEREST IN  MINIATURE PUNCH NEEDLE.

HEART CREEK FARM CREATIONS IS BASICALLY A ONE WOMAN OPERATION PLUS ONE MAN,  TOM.  WHO GIVES ME ENCOURAGMENT AND WHO  HELPS ME SET UP & TEAR DOWN  QUILT SHOWS.  HE PATIENTLY SMILES AT ME AS I ANNOUNCE THAT I WAS TURNING OUR GARAGE INTO "MY STUDIO" AND HELPS ME CLEAN, PAINT AND GET IT SET UP, SO I CAN NOW GO TO WORK WITHOUT HAVING TO SET UP TABLES INSIDE OUR BEDROOM OR DINNING ROOM EACH TIME I NEED TO MAKE PATTERNS OR PUT TOGETHER KITS. 

FROM THE DESIGNS, TO COMPLETING SAMPLES, TO TAKING PHOTOS,  CATALOGUES WRITTEN & PRINTED, TO PATTERNS HAND DRAWN ON WEAVER CLOTH AND YARDS AFTER YARDS OF FLOSS COUNTED OUT FOR KITS, THIS IS THE ONE WOMAN SHOW THAT DOES IT ALL.  MY GOAL IS TO KEEP MY COSTS DOWN BUT MOST OF ALL KEEP  OF MY PRODUCTION  IN THE USA.  

I LOVE VENDING AT QUILT SHOWS BECAUSE I LOVE MEETING EACH AND EVERYONE OF YOU AND HELPING YOU GET STARTED IN PUNCHING, REFRESH YOUR PUNCHING KNOWLEDGE OR SHOW YOU SOME GREAT NEW DESIGNS.  THE HOME ECONOMICS TEACHER IN ME ALWAYS COMES OUT WHEN I AM AT SHOWS AND I WILL DO MY BEST TO TEACH YOU  HOW TO GET STARTED IN MINIATURE PUNCH NEEDLE.  MY EMAIL AND PHONE ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE TO ANSWER ANY QUESTIONS TO KEEP YOU GOING.  

SO, AS WE LAUNCH OUR NEW WEBSITE, WE HOPE YOU JOIN US IN OUR JOURNEY TO PROMOTE MINAUTURE PUNCH NEEDLE AND HELP YOU FALL IN LOVE WITH THIS  FUN AND EASY NEEDLEWORK. 

MY "HOW-TO" BOOKLET THAT IS IN THE FINAL STAGE OF WRITING , IS APPROPRIATELY NAMED:  "HAVING FUN WITH PUNCH NEEDLE"; THAT IS MY GOAL, THAT EACH AND EVERY PERSON WHO TRIES MINIATURE PUNCH NEEDLE, HAS LOADS OF FUN DOING IT AND FINDS THE JOY THAT I HAVE FOUND IN THIS GREAT NEEDLEWORK  ART FORM.

ROSE & TOM

HAPPY PUNCHING!
