What's old is new again!!! Dating back to the 17th Century, Punch Needle has been around forever, it seems! It is simply a method of punching fabric and leaving a loop of thread on the 'backside' which, when you're finished, becomes the front of your creation! It is JUST THE MOST FUN to do! Each of the designs featured below are punched with the Igolochkoy brand of punch needles. Patterns and needles are available separately, so one set of needles should last you through years and years of patterns!!!

Most designs are available as pattern packs... the color picture, pattern instructions and color keys - along with the necessary ground fabric with the line-drawn design already on it. Needle sets for Punch Needle Embroidery are shown below. You'll also need a nice, sharp pair of scissors, and a plastic embroidery hoop - the kind with a special lip on one of the rings. (Don't worry, we have all of it!)

There is a little technique involved in getting 'good loops', that sort of thing... and you actually do this stitching from the backside! The punch needle package has a some good diagrams inside to help... including a Trouble Shooting column!

A Note about Punch Needle Patterns...
Some come with the design already printed onto your weaver's cloth base fabric... others don't. I've made sure to tell you that information somewhere on that particular designer's page, or in the specific pattern words. If you are a beginner, or simply a puncher that wants to DIVE RIGHT IN the minute you open your package... look for the designs that come pre-printed! Tracing isn't hard... it's just sometimes a frustrating and unexpected surprise!

Neat Punchneedle Designs from Threads That Bind
Joyous Offering from Threads That Bind -- click to see lots more A beautifully sophisticated selection of county primitives, by artist Shawn Williams, these are worth a second look... and definitely deserve your needle's attention! This is just a sample of her unique collection. Offered as the design stamped onto the weavers cloth... each is punched in both Weeks and Gentle Art overdyeds.

Threads That Bind is undoubtedly the best Punch Needle designer out there... her stuff has such great color sense, none of it is too 'busy' or 'sloppy.' She uses good old fashioned DMC flosses in her designs -- so yours WILL turn out looking as good as the original, (you can actually find the thread at a shop!) and her designs all come clearly pre-stamped on HUGE pieces of antiqued Weaver's cloth. (Huge means like a 14 x 16 piece... so you can get it into a nice large hoop or stand.) Of all our shop models... hers are the ones that always draw the comments and inquiries!

Embroidery and Punch Needle Kits from The Urban Acres
Summer Harvest Embroidery Kit Contents from The Urban Acres - click to see more Urban Acres is a new designer to our shop. Well, not 'really' - as Sallie is the daughter of one of our long-time customers! She brought these things in the other day, and told me she remembers shopping at The Silver Needle with her mom when she was little. I asked if it was a 'good memory' and she laughed and said it was. I guess we made a good impression, because here she is with her lovely surface embroidery kits and punch needle patterns! She has done an absolutely wonderful job with her designs, artwork, presentation, graphic arts, packaging, EVERYTHING.
  • Summer Harvest Embroidery - Chain, Satin, and Stem Stitches are featured in this 5-inch design embroidered on a gray background. Sallie has presented a full color diagram of the design, the full-sized iron-on transfer to apply to the provided gray base fabric. 7 Full skeins of DMC floss are included as well as the 7-inch hoop and the needles you'll need to work this. Contemporary, it'll look great in a deserving kitchen!
  • Folk Floral Bird Embroidery - A plump little pink and red bird perched on a flowering branch, this kit includes all you need... base fabric, the actual-sized transfer, DMC, the hoop - everything!
  • Folk Floral Punch Needle - Cute little blue 'thistle' flower, the design is already printed on a dusty lavender linen base fabric... uses DMC (from your stash.)
  • Wandering Strawberry - Punched on a luscious bright green base fabric, it calls for 6 shades of DMC floss.
  • Pink Floral - This one is punched on a very light, soft pastel pink background fabric - delicate and pretty. Calls for only 3362, 3012, 3033 and 783!

Some of the Awesome Punch Needle Designs

Stick 'n Stitch by The Sulky Co - click to see more
Stick 'n Stitch from The Sulky Co
This is the COOLEST STUFF to transfer your designs for stitching (or punchneedle)! Basically, it is a rinse-away film that you COPY (as in 'Xerox!') your line drawing onto. Then STICK it (it's not real gummy or sticky - just clingy enough to stay in place) on your towel or whatever you are working on.

You stitch the design, then wet the 'film' and it disintegrates, leaving your stitching! You never have to trace a design ever again! We love it! The package comes with 12 - 8-1/2 x 11 sheets, plenty to make lots of cute towels!



Ultra Punch Needles - click to see more Ultra Punch Needles are BACK!
After a stressful discontinuation of these in the Punch Needle Industry... the right people did the right things to get these made again... and back into the market place! Ultra-Punch needles have been around for something like 50 years... definitely a longtime favorite needle.

The complete set is presented with the small, medium (installed in the needle), and large tips and two threaders, and very comprehensive 6-page instruction book.

Ultra Punch Extra Tip Set - click to see more I read through that little booklet - it tells you everything you ever wanted to know (or possibly not!) about the needle, changing tips, threading, fabrics to use and how to transfer designs, the hoops you need, setting the loop length, holding the needle, then... into the actual punching, sculpting, cutting, brushing... whew! It's all there!

We also have the three-tip EXTRA sets available, just the three tips - no main needle shaft, no booklet, no threaders.


The one strand punchneedle -- click to see the entire set. Igolochkoy Russian Punchneedle Set
Available as a set of three needles, 1-Strand, 3-Strand and a 6-Strand size... each set includes Russian Punch Needle technique instructions and trouble-shooting tips. Included in the set are the three various sized needles, each in a clear plastic tube. There are threaders for each needle, along with two extra, and plenty of extra plastic gauges for the individual needles.

Each needle includes a guide for thread weights that will work in it - metallics, silks, cords, so many things I'd never thought you could use! One set of needles should last you for all your punch needle needs... (unless you drop one on its point on a concrete floor!!!) Very heavy-duty, they feel great in your hand. Click the image at right to see the whole set.


The Morgan Lap Stand The Morgan Lap Stand -- click for more
What a cool tool for us Punchers!!! Brand new to the Needle Punch crowd, this is a double set of extra-heavy duty hoops that fit together with little legs... to offer a raised area for you to punch in. Designed to sit in your lap... put your project in the 7-inch hoop, or turn it over and use the 10-inch hoop. Then, if you want, stretch a piece of fabric in the hoop not being used -- the one on your lap -- and it becomes your little tray-table for your materials and tools!

Excellent stability, super heavy-duty, there is a hidden notch in the hoops that 'lock' the fabric in place perfectly. The larger sized hoops give you the flexibility to punch larger projects, as well! And... each hoop can be used alone, if you don't want the double feature!

Offered in two sized combos. No more stabbing your knee (!) with the punchneedles, or cramping your hand holding a flimsy hoop!

UPDATE: The Morgan Hoop Company has two new size combinations! Designed to give you many more options with hoop sizes, each is still the idea of two hoops attaching together with little legs in between to make a lap frame.

Now... you can get THREE different sizes of hoops to mix and match your lap frames! These hoops are top-notch in strength, durability, and holding-tight power. Use them individually or make the frame size you wish! (Or purchase the various hoops separately below... you just don't get the little legs.)

Individual Morgan Hoops!
The same great quality as the hoops in the Morgan Stands... these are the individual hoops! Super-extra-sturdy, although they aren't pretty like our softer, brightly colored hoops... these are far superior for tension, and MUCH more substantial in feel. These won't 'bend' if your fabric is super tight...(they kind of feel like you could run over them with your car, and not crush them!!!!! but... I'm not trying it!) More money... more Hoop for the money!
