For as long as I can remember my grandparents read the Toronto Star every day from cover-to-cover. So I was pretty thrilled to see my name in print in the Star's Life section this past weekend. Debra Norton wrote a great piece on the resurgence of punch needle and the social media origins of this craft trend.
The article profiles Toronto textile artist Arounna Khounnoraj’s experience with punch needle and explores how the sharing of her process on Instagram sparked a world-wide craft trend. Also profiled are other fiber artists such as Marina Dempster, Jamie Bennett and myself.

Today I’m sharing a free pattern with you: my punch needle grapefruit! This is one of the first things I made with my punch needle and is a great project for beginners.
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.
