I will be offering a short introduction to the art of Punch Needle Rug Hooking. I will be reviewing backings, frames, punch needles, usable materials and methods to achieve your desired look. After this introduction, I will be offering what is called a “Make N Take”. You will have to opportunity to try your hand at Punch Needle and Make a 5” round Coaster/Trivet that you will be able to Take with you. For a $5 fee you will receive a piece of Monks Cloth with a Seasonal Pattern, in keeping with the Harvest Hook In theme, as well as all the Yarn to complete your mini project. You will have the use of a punch needle, hoop, scissors and other necessary items to try your hand at this art form.
