HEART CREEK FARM CREATIONS started 15 years ago out of my love of antique hooked rugs and Antique quilts. I discovered Miniature Punch Needle after I had to stop Rug Hooking because of bad Arthritis in my wrist. Upon discovering the art of Punch Needle, I could continue to "hook rugs" in miniature versions with much less equipment needed to carry around. Punch Needle is very portable, a fact I soon learned to love & A fact that made my husband, Tom, also very happy.
Since 2007, I began selling my finish framed pieces and custom making many pieces upon request. After repeated request to supply my designs as Patterns & Kit, in 2011, I decided to package a few designs and I began setting up at Quilt shows. It has been a great 7 years doing shows and expanding my 25 designs to 80 Patterns & Kits to date.
So here we are today redesigning our Website with the hope that it is easier for you to shop.
It is an on going process & we welcome your comments & suggestions to make it more convenient for you, our customers.
I am often asked what my goals are in setting up a website or displaying my designs at quilt show. I what to insure that each and every person who tries miniature Punch Needle for the first time or who is trying it again after many years, has loads of fun doing this great Needle Art and finds the joy that have found in each design
My designs are hand drawn on Weaver Cloth by myself. I package each kit myself & with the support of Tom, this is a one woman show from the photography, to typing and printing the instructions sheets, How to Books & catalogs. So if there is a misspelled word or a Kit is missing some threads, It is my fault & I will send out the missing yardage immediately.
"HAVING FUN WITH PUNCH NEEDLE" is not only the name of my How-to-Book but it is also the feelings & joy I hope every customer finds as they begin their journey into the wonderful world of Punch Needle.
As a former Home Economics Teacher, I love to teach especially Fiber Arts. The equipment you use for Punching is as important as it is in any other Needlework you do. There are many types of Punch Needles & many types of Hoops on the market you could use but not everyone will give you the best results & will make your time Punching enjoyable & most productive.
After 15 years of working with Miniature Punch Needle, I can tell you what I think are the 3 most important tools you need for Punching: The 3 piece Purr-Fect Punch Needle, The Morgan No Slip Hoops & Weaver Cloth . These are the essential tools you need to achieve
your Punch Needle Goals.
All of Heart Creek Farm Creations designs are Hand Drawn on Weaver Cloth for you, each Pattern & Kit, not only gives you Step by Step instructions for Punching the Designs, but it will also give you all the Suggested Colors I used in my sample & I also give you an approximate Yardage of Floss needed to punch each design.
All of our designs are on a large 16"x15" piece of Weaver Cloth, so every design can be Punched using a 10" Hoop. There is no need to have more than one 10" hoop to Punch
all 80+ designs from Heart Creek Farm Creations.
Besides our designs being unique, fun to punch and I hope very different than the norm, I do one major thing different than the majority of ladies punching. All of my designs are Punched using "ALL 6 STRANDS OF EMBROIDERY THREADS". 6 strands gives you a fuller & deeper texture to your finished piece. Yes, your work will fill in a little faster but after Wool Rug Hooking for years, I love the look of 6 strands over 2 to 3 strands. You can punch my designs in the normal 2-3 strands but you will have a finer texture to your finish piece.
Our Designs can be purchased as Simple Designs on the Weaver Cloth or as Complete Kits with all the threads needed. In addition, each Pattern or Kit includes step by step instructions, colors & necessary thread yardage. Remember, our Designs are only the "BEGINNING OF YOUR IMAGINATION". Knowing the colors & yardage of threads needed, allows you to personalize the design.
Everything you need to enjoy your journey into Punch Needle can be found on our website. What are you waiting for? Start shopping & remember don't hesitate to email or call if you have any questions or need assistance. I am only a text or email away from talking you through a question or that "what do I do next moment" with your Punching adventures.
