About The Event

Punch needle rug hooking- sometimes described as "painting with wool"- is a versatile craft that began in the 1880s. Fast, easy, and fun, this traditional craft is enjoying new popularity with fiber artists around the world!

In this class you will make a “mug rug” (a.k.a. a fancy coaster!) and in the process learn how to use a punch needle, how to create the correct size stitch with the needle, and how to finish your project. By the end of class you will have the basic skills necessary to make larger wall hangings, pillows, and rugs!

Monk’s cloth with pattern and 100% Wool Rug Yarn are included in the class fee. An Oxford Punch Needle ($32/$39) and No-Slip Hoop will be provided and can be purchased after class if desired.

These basic skills will allow you to complete your coaster and move on to larger projects such as pillows, wall hangings, and rugs with confidence!

Snacks, beverages and 20% off of everything in our shop is included!

MIN 6 MAX 12
