About Punch Needle:
Punch Needle goes back to the Ancient Egyptians. They developed the technique of threading fibers through the hollow bones of birds wings in order to Punch the threads through cloth, creating a nubby, three-dimensional effect.
Punch Needle uses a special needle, hoop, weaver's cloth (or any tightly woven fabric, such as muslin), and embroidery floss to create designs that consist of tiny loops. The designs are miniature so punch needle is a perfect way to use up some of those stashes of floss we all have from other projects. The needle is a hollow tube. A special long threader is used to thread the needle. There is no counting involved. You are just filling in color areas. The project is worked in a hoop from the back of the fabric. The tiny loops are placed close together so the finished product has a textured, chenille look.
