What is Punch Needle Embroidery?
As a modern form of traditional rug hooking, punch needle embroidery is a new craft hobby that’s taking the world by storm.
Instead of stitching through the fabric, you simply apply a punch needle to "punch" yarn into the cloth to create beautiful patterns or designs.
Punch needle embroidery is therapeutic, easy-to-learn and a whole lot of fun. The craft allows limitless creativity, you can create stunning artwork with little effort and no mess, the patterns make wonderful wall hangings, rugs, pillows, and so much more.
How does punch needle embroidery work?
Punch needle embroidery is easier and faster than traditional embroidery, there are no knots used. When you punch a needle through the monk's cloth, it pushes down a long end of yarn, when you bring the punch needle back up, it folds the end into a loop. While you keep punching, there are many continuous loops packed in tightly together that the tension of yarn and cloth keeps the stitches from pulling out.
