needlepunch

Three years ago I had never heard of punchneedle.  A loose definition might be embroidery created by drawing a scene/picture on a piece of fabric (usually weavers’ cloth) and finishing with floss, perle cotton, yarn threaded through a tool called a punch needle. You do all your ‘punching’ on the back of the piece and the finished product appears on the front as loops similar to what you see in rug hooking.  My sister repurposed the utensil box below. It makes a great supply box. In the picture (no points for neatness) you can see the blue Cameo punch needles. A few of them I have covered with foam for wrist comfort.
