Rug Punch Embroidery by Feltfine

19 May, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


In this two-hour workshop, participants will learn how to do rug punch embroidery (aka punch needling) with the Amy Oxford Rug Punch Tool. They will learn how to plan a design, select the best yarn for their design and how to rug punch.

Rug Punch Embroidery is a fun craft for people of all ages. An age-old craft, punch needling has seen a recent rise in popularity. Rug punching is an easy skill to learn and results in near instant gratification. All you need is a rug punch tool, yarn, and backing fabric stretched across a frame. It’s like colour-by-number for yarn!

Participants will receive a 20cm x 20cm frame with backing fabric attached and have a selection of yarns to use for their project. For the duration of the workshop, participants will use an Amy Oxford Rug Punch Tool, which will be available for separate purchase from the FeltFine market stall.

For more information, please see Oxford Punch Needles in the Feltfine Collection.
