Let's embroider with yarn and make a squishy coaster or wall hanging! Punch Needling (or Needle Punching) is the hand-operated cousin to rug tufting, which uses electric guns instead of a small wooden tool. Punch Needling is a great intro to rug making. In this workshop you'll learn the basics, as well as how to avoid and fix common mistakes.
