Punch Needle Rug Hooking

fun and easy to learn

Often described as 'painting with wool', punch needle rug hooking is an exciting and easy to learn art that gives almost instant gratification. Not an artist? No worries! With the endless variety of design possibilities Punching is for everyone; you can still have wonderful results and no artistic skills necessary! Like to get creative? Let your imagination soar! I strive to keep classes fun and relaxed for all, and I make sure you go home with the skills needed for satisfaction and success with your rug punching endeavors.  Classes are available near Grand Bend or at your location.

Workshops for your Group

book now

I am currently booking workshops for the remainder of 2014, and into 2015. If you'd like me to come and teach your Group or Guild contact me and I'd be happy to discuss ideas with you! I am willing to travel. Not a part of a group or guild, but just want to get together a group of friends to learn a new craft? That works too!


for beginners to advanced

There is something for everyone!

I like to keep workshop classes small (between 10 and 12 students) to ensure that everyone receives plenty of individual attention.

Beginners: No need to purchase tools! I loan my students the tools needed during class, so they can decided if they like punching before buying. For those that decide they like it, tools are available to purchase at the end of class, if they wish.

Private Lessons

for the individual learner

If you prefer to learn on your own private lessons may be just the ticket. Teaching fee is $25 per hour for private lessons and I usually recommend three hours minimum to get a good start.
