Interested in learning Punchneedle?We are now carrying Punchneedle patterns and supplies!Punchneedle is a technique using a hollow needle that is threaded with a thread or fiber. When the needle is punched into the fabric, it leaves a little loop of thread on the other side. The loops are repeated to fill in a design. This is a fun, easy and relaxing art form to learn! Patterns are small and easy to use almost anywhere!If you are interested learning Punchneedle and would like to attend a workshop, call the shop to put your name on a list. We are working on scheduling a class in early 2018 (Jan or Feb).
Here are just a few of the patterns we've recently received, as well as the running chicken above!
