Punch needle embroidery is a type of embroidery that’s traditionally used to make rugs. You push the yarn or thread into the fabric with a punch needle to make a loop while the needle stays on the surface. This form of embroidery results in richly textured designs, perfect for making a cushion or hoop art. Once you’ve got the hang of it, punch needle embroidery is quick and easy to do. To get started, you’ll need a wooden punch needle, fabric and yarn, or you can try one of our lovely punch needle kits with everything you need to try this fascinating craft.
