My First Pieces of Punchneedle Embroidery

Punchneedle embroidery is very relaxing for me. These are some practice samples I've done. When I first started I was interested in just punching anything to get the hang of using the needle. I started with a Ultra Punch and now I punch with just the needles of the Super Luxo Needles. I really like the feel of just using the tips.

As you can see, this is unfinished but you can see the progress I made from one to the next.

I really like this pattern. My technique and understand has improved since this was done. I will punch it again using different colors and vary the height of the threads (project 576,438, 129).

If you are new to Punchneedle or would like to try Punchneedle....don't be afraid to experiment...just jump in and start practicing. Before too long your technique will improve and you'll enjoy the relaxation of Punchneedle embroidery. You can use any thread that will go through the needle (told to me by my "Starr" punchneedle teacher). I have used sewing thread and rayon threads too. So when you see those spools of thread at rummage sales or garage sales....scoop it up for a dime and start punching.


  1. I'll watch you do it ... I mess up! Great designs & beautiful work.

  2. Hi Kelly,
    I just bought everything for needlepunch and haven't set down to do it. To much hand sewing going on. Yours turned out great.
