Punch needling is a form of embroidery that’s also related to rug hooking, but instead of stitching, the punch needle pushes thread or yarn into the fabric, while keeping the needle on the surface. The result is a highly textured design made of loops!
Punch needle rug hooking is easy to learn, allows limitless creativity, and works up so quickly that it’s been described as “Instant gratification with wool!”

About your teacher
Irene and Adrienne, co-owners have been friends since their children were in Grade 1, 20+ years ago, and so the 2 of them know each other’s strengths and foibles and have formed a great team.
They started in 1 room, with very sad looking shelves and have blossomed into everything they offer today and also became friends with lots and lots of crafty yarn lovers.
They teach anything from beginners to advanced knitting, crochet, Punch Needle, Ami and more at The Yarn Tree.
