The Punch Needle Handbook
A craft richly steeped in history and tradition, punch needle is changing the global craft landscape so quickly, it’s hard to miss. Whereas some crafts take much time and expertise to master, you can pick up a punch needle and complete a project in less than an hour, with no prior skill needed. It requires just one easy-to-use tool, a background fabric, an embroidery hoop or frame, and yarn. Punched pieces make excellent wall hangings, pillows, ornaments, stool covers, chair cushions, purses/pouches, baby play mats, and much more! If you can imagine it you can do it.
Simple and easy, punch needle is an approach to creating personal and home décor projects that just require you know how to hold a pen. It’s like painting by number with yarn!
