Create stunning 'embroidered' designs with yarns, threads/floss, fabric and more without needing to learn dozens of stitches!

Punch needle embroidery is similar to rug hooking, whereby a strand of yarn or fabric is pushed through loose-weave fabric, making a 'loop'. Repeated several times, the loops squash together to create a stunning, dense, tactile piece of fabric. With needle punching, a special needle is used to make this process much easier and quicker, meaning you can create incredible textured designs with less know-how and in very little time at all.

A traditional technique that came out of the US in the 19th century, punch needle has been revitalized and is appealing to many textile enthusiasts as it's not only simple to pick up but incredibly fun!

With France's favourite crafter, Marie Suarez, learn and discover the delights of punch needle embroidery in this gorgeous practical book. Starting with the key materials and equipment you'll need, as well as the basic punch-needle stitches and techniques, go straight into making 20 creative and original projects including flower-adorned pillows, pretty wall hangings and stylish bags!

All the projects are accompanied by beautiful photographs, diagrams to help you work out what to stitch first, and templates for you to trace off for quick-and-easy needle punching.
