Punch Needle Workshop with Local Artist Daisy McClellan

Learn the art of punch needle with local artist Daisy McClellan on October 23 from 10 am-12 pm. While this traditional embroidery technique has been around for centuries, it has recently come back in a big and modern way in the crafting community. McClellan will teach you everything you need to know to get started with this meditative and relaxing craft. Beginners are welcome; no experience is required. Participants will learn about the best supplies to get started, how to thread a punch needle, stretch a frame, draw your own design to fabric, how to punch, as well as tips and tricks for turning your piece into a wall hanging, pillow, purse, trivet, and more.
