On Saturday October 12th at 10am, Durham, North Carolina textile artist Katie Berman will be teaching a class at Gather in downtown Cary, NC on punch needle embroidery. In this class we’ll walk through the foundations of punch needle embroidery and students will walk away with a piece that they can finish up at their leisure at home. Students can choose from one of three custom made designs for this class and will have the knowledge and skills to make their own in the future. You can sign up for the class here.

It’s an inexpensive and cathartic craft to take up as a hobby. You can make pillows, wall hangings and more with this process. Below are some inspiring punch needle artworks:
