Punch Needle News

We are so happy that we have finally managed to restock the Ultra Punch Needle. This fine instrument is what a punch needler needs for creating tiny loops with smaller yarns and embroidery floss.

I made this sign for The Knit Cafe using the Ultra Punch Needle and fingering weight yarn so I could get a precise and legible look in the letters and numbers.
Generally the Ultra Punch needle works best with a fabric that is more tightly woven than Monks Cloth or Primitive Linen, such as a plain weave linen or cotton, but we have used it with the Monks Cloth with some success. The Ultra Punch needle comes with three difference sized tips and you can control the length of the pile with a sliding gauge on the side of the tool. In other words it is very versatile.

The Ultra Punch Needle is featured along with the Amy Oxford Punch Needles in Punch Needle this beautiful book by Arounna Khounnoraj. This book is a gem; full of lots of wisdom from this talented lady. It is replete with inspiration. Arounna’s gorgeous designs decorate the pages. This is a wonderful book to initiate anyone to the craft of Punch Needling but will also be appreciated by those who already have a practised hand. There are 20 lovely projects to try: cushions, bags, trivets and coasters, wall art, and more! Step by step instructions include templates and finishing techniques. Next time you’re in The Knit CafĂ© give it a gander or check it out HERE.

Craftily yours
