You can also purchase one of Doreen's books or kits - these include modern and reproduction samplers, counted thread, cross stitch, stumpwork (Raised Embroidery) and Needlelace kits produced under Doreen's own label - 'Leisure Needle' and the best-selling range of Stumpwork and Embroidery that Doreen designed for Pearsall's Embroidery - now owned by John and Carol of Langley Threads, in Cardiff.
