Kim Scanlan

Learn the basics of punch needle rug hooking while working on a small piece that can be used for a wall hanging or tabletop decoration. While traditional rug hooking involves pulling a piece of wool or yarn up through a backing, punch needle rug hooking involves punching yarn or wool down through the backing. It’s fiber, fast and fun! Some students may not complete the piece within the class, but all stages of rug finishing will be taught so you can finish your piece at home. No previous experience required. Materials fee $20, payable to the instructor at the time of class.
