Four top tips for making punch needle rugs

I still have the first punch needle rug I made and now my home has several more that I designed myself. I love being able to take a few materials, sit down and work on a project that is built to last.

Punch needle workshop reviews

Sara is so warm and friendly and personable - I felt completely at ease with her straight away. She knows everything there is to know about punch needle and explained it all so clearly, going through each step of the process from setting up to finishing, answering all my questions and providing lots of tips and tricks along the way.


This was one of the best workshops I've been too. Sara was a great teacher and I learnt a lot. Sometimes workshops feel really rushed, but this was relaxed, informative and left me wanting get straight into making rugs using the punch needle technique. I'd thoroughly recommend attending Sara's workshops.


Sara is a fantastic teacher - approachable, professional and a great communicator. The course was very well structured and we covered a lot of ground in the afternoon without it feeling overwhelming. I now feel confident to choose a design, transfer it onto cloth, prepare a frame and punch needle various shapes.
