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. McClellan will teach you everything you need to know to get started with this meditative and relaxing craft. Beginners are welcome – no experience is required. Participants will 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, as well as tips and tricks for turning your piece into a wall hanging, pillow, purse, trivet, and more. This class includes the below materials needed during the workshop and are yours to take home with you:
- #10 Regular Oxford Punch Needle

- Monk’s Cloth Backing Fabric
