Rug Punch

Here's a picture (OK, yes it's sideways....I can't figure out why just yet but my techie daughter will straighten it out for me) of my latest obsession.....rug punch. It's sort of a cross between punch needle and rug hooking. The needle is like a punch needle where you push it all the way in and you get a perfect size loop every time. It's unlike rug hooking where you have to be very careful about getting your loops all the same size. But, it does look like rug hooking since you use hand dyed wool yarn. It has that old, primitive look that I like. We'll be having a class on it this fall. Check out our new fall class schedule on our web site at
