Who doesn't love Celestial-inspired motifs, and with this beginners punch needle kit you can welcome in the shorter evenings with a craft project, or gift it to someone you care about.
Punch needle is a form of embroidery that's also related to rug hooking. This technique goes back thousands of years, but it has remained popular. Instead of stitching through the fabric, punch needle pushes thread or yarn into the fabric, while keeping the needle on the surface. The technique allows the maker to create varied, textured patterns with many end uses.
Suitable for complete beginners, this punch needle kit contains detailed printed instructions and step-by-step photos. See alternative designs available also (see imasges).
