Punch needle embroidery is a form of embroidery that’s related to rug making. This technique goes back hundreds or maybe even thousands of years, but it has remained popular and takes on looks from primitive to modern. Punch needle embroider is a highly textured technique made of loops that shows off its connection to rug making.  Instead of stitching through the fabric, punch needle pushes thread or yarn into the fabric, while keeping the needle on the surface.
