How to punch ?
With the Punch Needle, you will literally stitch as quickly as if you were drawing a picture. Compose your pattern on the fabric, play with colors and volumes thanks to the sizes of the adjustable loops! You will be able to make cushions, frames, wallets and other decorative accessories!
Hold the needle
Hold the punch needle on its grip. Face the needle front (bevel) in intended direction and keep a vertical position.
Prepare the needle
1- Insert the threader into the punch needle from the needle point and completely through its barrel until it comes out the opposite end of the punch needle.
2- Insert thread/yarn into the threader loop and pull the threader back out of the needle. Pull the thread/yarn downward out of the threader tip end and remove the thread or yarn from the threader.
3- Insert the threader through the needle eye from the needle back of the needle tip.
4- Place the end of the thread/yarn into the threader and pull the threader back out of the needle eye. Pull the the thread/yarn downward out of the threader tip and remove the thread: yarn from the threader. Threading is completeted.
5- Choose your fabric: Aida canvas, burlap, linen or Monk's Cloth. Stretch your fabric in a frame: embroidery wooden hoop or wooden frame.Work on the back of the frame to see the curls forming on the front of the canvas.
Start punching !
6- Punch needle should penetrate all the way into the fabric so the grip of the needle touches the fabric. The needle must be pushed all the way in on each stitch to make an even look. Lift needle out of fabric, just enough to move to next stitch. Keep the needle as close to the material as possible. Lifting the needle too high shortens the loops on the front of the design and creates unwanted loops on the back.
