Foxberry Cottage Crafts is a Canadian home-based business producing original counted cross-stitch embroidery designs which feature the beauty, culture and history of Atlantic Canada. The original Foxberry Cottage Crafts started in 1994.
"Our designer, Donna Troicuk, received training in Interior Design at the University of Manitoba. Her interest in stitchery goes back to age 4 when her mother first put a needle in her hand and taught her a simple backstitch. She went on to try many forms of sewing and crafts but was never satisfied with commercial designs, and could never resist "tweaking" them to her own liking. This inevitably led her to create her own designs in whatever the craft du jour."
The kits include chart, instructions, 100% cotton Aida cloth, DMC floss and needle. The cover sheet shows the finished kit and usually a brief factual write-up on the subject. Every aspect of the design and layout are produced here in Nova Scotia, from logo, photography and layout to preparing the charts and instructions, cutting materials and packaging.
