Artists Are Using “Punch Needles” to Create Fuzzy Embroidered Illustrations

Getting Started With Punch Needle Embroidery

It's easy to try punch needle embroidery. There are many creative sellers that have compiled all-inclusive kits that have the punch needle, yarn, and the proper fabric for it.

If you'd prefer to go kit-less and buy just the punch needle, the tool does have a gold-standard brand: the Oxford Punch Needle. Created by Amy Oxford, this handmade needle is designed to be ergonomically correct—ensuring that you'll have a comfortable punch needle experience.
