KCRQF 2019 – Vendor Heart Creek Farm Creations

Joining Kansas City Regional Quilt Festival 2019 is returning vendor Heart Creek Farm Creations.

Heart Creek stocks everything you need to “have fun with punch needle”.   Rose says: “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.”

Stop by their booth at the Festival to see the latest designs, or see what you’ll find on their website.
