Chatelaine Magazine Punch Needle Article

This month I was featured in an article by Chatelaine Magazine on bringing punch needle into your home décor. The article touches on the current trend of punch needle, its history, and profiles a number of talented punch needle artists selling patterns, supplies, and finished work. Writer Iris Benaroia interviewed me for the article and included a great little write-up of me and my work. I love the quote she included of me describing punch needle as “the least frustrating craft I’ve ever tried”. Perfectly summed up!

Below are some of my favourite pics from the piece. Click on the pictures to head to each artist's website.  Read the full Chatelaine article here.

When you’re done punching your grapefruit you could turn it into a stuffie like I did (‘cause who doesn’t need a plush grapefruit to snuggle with?) or fill in the background and turn it into a wall-hanging.

My friend Danielle (who also makes the sweetest art illustrations for kids), came to one of my punch needle workshops this spring. She had never needle punched before, but brought her own sketch and made this adorable little fox. After Danielle was finishing punching her fox on a stretcher bar frame, she asked me to help her turn her project into a little pillow. I though I’d share the process in a blog post, because people can’t get enough of these plush punch needle projects!
