Come learn the art of punch needle with local artist, Daisy McClellan. While this traditional embroidery technique has been around for centuries it has recently come back in a big and modern way in the crafting community. Daisy will teach you everything you need to know to get started with this meditative and relaxing craft. Beginners are welcome – no experience is required. You’ll learn about the best supplies to get started, how to thread a punch needle, stretch a frame, draw your own design to fabric, how to punch, and transfer your piece to a display hoop so you can hang your new piece right away.We’ll also talk about tips and tricks for turning your piece into a pillow, purse, trivet, and more. This two hour class includes all the materials ($125 value) so you get to go home with the tools to continue with future punch needle projects. You’ll either finish the 9-inch circle wall hanging in class or if you don’t you will have all the skills/materials to finish it at home.
