This is the BEST Beginners Punch Needle Kit but with A wee bit MORE (minus the non-slip hoop for those who already purchased one in the embroidery module!)
Here's the deal! You get everything in our kit plus!
Curved Embroidery Scissors, Pins to hold your pattern in place while you transfer your design, a Water Soluble Marker, and Wooden Embroidery Hoop for displaying your finished work!
This Kit comes with 5 Stunning Colours of Hand-dyed Merino Wool Yarn by Prosper Yarn! This CUSTOM yarn has been made exclusively for all of us in the Clever Poppy Makers Academy.
I worked really hard to find a yarn that worked perfectly with the ABCD Adjustable Punch Needle that also comes in this kit! Even though the yarn hasn't been dyed yet, I got to test the beautiful rust colour you'll see in the photos. It punches like a dream.
There aren't heaps of rules in punch needling, but one is keeping your cloth tight as a drum while you punch. Unfortunately, this can't be achieved with your average wooden embroidery hoop. So, in this kit you will get a 21cm Non-slip hoop. This hoop is double grooved to hold your cloth tight!
You will also get a piece of beautiful monks cloth measuring about 30cm x 30cm.This Monks cloth with white guidelines is by far the best foundation cloth that is out there. You won't find Monks cloth in Spotlight, and you won't find this quality monks cloth anywhere else in NZ! Did I mention that the edges will be serged? Monks cloth unravels very easily leaving a total mess. I serge the edges so only my living room end up a mess!
Lastly. the threaders that come with the ABCD adjustable needle aren't quite the right size for needle and they are super easy to loose. So I will supply a custom made threader that is durable and has a handy wood bead on the end.

**Please note we will be shipping new orders early next weekSeptember 7th as we are eagerly awaiting more beautifully hand-dyed yarn. WE APPRECIATE YOUR PATIENCE and WE KNOW IT SUCKS TO WAIT!
**Please also note, the materials are not available at your local craft store. Please be wary that the punch needle products commonly sold at your local shop are small punch needles that work embroidery cotton and 4ply yarns.
**Hessian is considered a foundation fabric for Punch Needling. However, this is not recommended for beginners. It is not forgiving like the cotton Monks Cloth supplied in this kit. Monks cloth is a specialty even-weave fabric originally used for Swedish weaving and punch needling. It has a stretch to it that is very specific to this kind of cloth.
