Create a small bag using The Oxford #14 Mini Punch Needle. This tool creates a short 1/8” looped pile that looks similar to needlepoint. This tool may be used with 3 ply tapestry yarn, worsted weight knitting yarn, sock yarn and many other yarns of similar sizes. This class is a great way to use up leftover knitting yarns. You will have four designs to choose form: a floral, a dragonfly, a moon and sun motif or geometric stars, or…design your own! We will punch and assemble the bag. If the bag is not completed in class students will leave with complete directions for how to finish the project at home.
Material Cost: $50+
