Zweigart Punch Needle Booklet
Punch needle is a versatile yet simple embroidery technique which can be used for creating unique designs. The punch needle is a hollow decorative stitching needle with which the thread is “punched” onto the fabric from the top. The technique ranges from thick punch needle with wool yarns to very fine punch works with embroidery threads.
With the punch needle, one works on the “flat side,” while the “loop side” is created on the bottom. The “flat side” is the outer side and is much clearer and more detailed in image.
