New in the Shop: Starter Punch Needle Kits

New in the Shop: Starter Punch Needle Kits

Starter punch needle kits are now in the shop! I realize this probably should have been the first kit I offered, but hey- better late than never, right? I put this kit together because the right materials are so important to the success of your punch needle project (hello tension!), and gathering all these supplies often means buying from many different places. This kit is the perfect starting point for beginner needle punchers.

The starter kit includes: 

  • A 10" Morgan No-Slip Hoop (reusable for future projects).
  • Two pieces of 12" square monk's cloth.
  • A size #10 regular Oxford punch needle.
  • Five balls of wool yarn (enough to complete two projects).
  • A PDF copy of my ebook that will walk you through everything you need to get started.

Punch Needle Embroidery Kit

The kit comes with a selection of wool yarn in your choice of colour palette: neutrals, blues, or pink & gold (which I used to make this fun grapefruit, by the way). You can use your chosen palette as a base, and add any scrap pieces of bulky weight (size #5) yarn you have at home.

Punch Needle Kit- Rose & Gold Palette

I designed these kits to be as open-ended as possible: turn your punch needle creation into a wall hanging by framing it in a  wood embroidery hoop, create something wearable such as a bag or iron-on patch, make coasters or a plant pocket for a housewarming gift, or stitch up a super-soft stuffy. There are so many possibilities with punch needle!

Shop starter punch needle kits here. Want to learn more about punch needle? Check out this FAQ post and my favourite resources for beginners.

Update- Due to popular demand, I've just added a square frame kit option to the shop. These kits contain everything that the original round frame kit does, except it contains a stretcher bar frame instead of a reusable No-Slip Hoop. Choose this option if you'd like to make a square wall-hanging: punch your project in the frame, then hang it on the wall for display.

Hi Mary Grace- thanks for your message.

I only sell the #10 regular Oxford Punch Needle which works with size 5 (bulky) weight yarn or 1/4" wide strips of wool fabric. The Oxford Company sells a range of sizes including the #14 punch needle for use with size 4 (worsted) weight yarn and looks more like needlepoint. You can find more information on the different sizes of Oxford punch needles here (scroll all the way to the bottom):

Another option is the Ultra Punch which I believe uses a embroidery floss or other fine-weight yarn. I haven’t used one myself, but this might be a good option for you.

Hope that helps!

Hi,
Do you have needles sizes. Normally I use 3 size. 1 for very fine thread, another one for normal thread and another one for wool.
I am interested please.

Regards,
Mary Grace
