Punch needle rug hooking--sometimes described as "painting with wool"--is a versatile craft that began in the 1880s and is currently enjoying a surge of interest! In this workshop, you will make a “mug rug” (a.k.a. a fancy coaster!) and in the process learn how to use a punch needle, how to create the correct size stitch with the needle, and how to hem your finished project. By the end of class you will have the basic skills necessary to make larger wall hangings, pillows, and rugs!
