Join Sandra, to learn the basics of Punch needle embroidery. Punch needle embroidery is a form of embroidery that's also related to rug hooking. This technique goes back hundreds or maybe even thousands of years, but it has remained popular and takes on looks from primitive to modern. Instead of stitching through the fabric, punch needle pushes thread or yarn into the fabric, while keeping the needle on the surface.
The result of punch needle embroidering is a highly textured design made of loops that shows off its connection to rug making. Like any craft, punch needle takes some practice to get the best results. But after finding the right movements and rhythm, it goes quickly so you can fill a large area in a jiffy!
The class fee is $45 plus $20 for the kit.
