• The Modern Crafter Punch Needle Workshop

Treat yourself to a creative experience with The Modern Crafter and learn how to create a punch needle pattern.

You will learn how to punch needle one of The Modern Crafter's summer punch needle patterns - Watermelon, Pineapple, Sunset or Monstera Leaf. Create the pattern with the provided Lavor adjustable punch needle tool and The Modern Crafter's own exclusive brand of 100% super chunky British wool, which is produced by a woollen mill in Yorkshire.

The Modern Crafter is run by sisters Rachel and Siobhan, authors of Punch Needle 15 Contemporary Projects, who hand design and hand make their own punch needle and embroidery craft kits. During the workshop you will receive their hints and tips to get a highly polished finish.

Included in the price of the workshop are all high-quality tools and materials to take home.
