A New Oxford Puncher in The Family!

I have been out at Silver Dollar City and will be here until the end of October 25th.  Danny comes out when he can and he has been demonstrating Oxford Punch Needle.  Look at all he made in the last couple of days!  

Each one is about 20 inches across.

I bet Sloan would love this pumpkin!  I will have to see if I can make them into pillows for the kiddos!  

Next, maybe I can have him demo punching some stockings and give them to the kiddos for Christmas!

He was really good with showing the kids how to oxford punch and occasionally he was even doing the needle punch :)

We even had some men interested in learning how to do needle punch!  I think it is really great that so many people no matter what age  want to learn how to hook and punch.

If you get a chance to visit us we are at Silver Dollar City just outside of Branson, Mo.  Our booth is on the square across the street from the General Store we would love to see you!

Happy Trails....Ginger

Could you explain the difference between oxford punch and needle punching for those of us who don't know.

He does a beautiful job with punching. I am trying a pumpkin face and making a mess of it, lol. I think I am punching too tight and the hoop didn't tighten the fabric enough, but fun to practice.

We thoroughly enjoyed visiting with all three of you! Michaela has a new found love and I can't wait for her to get all her stuff at Christmas and begin! I posted a few pictures on your Facebook. Hope you enjoy!

Needle punch is done with the smaller type needle and weavers cloth. You can use threads like embroidery floss anywhere from 1 to 6 strands. I also, use wool threads.
The rug punch I do is with an Oxford Punch needle and uses monks cloth or linen using yarns or wool strips. It makes bigger pieces for rugs, chairpads, etc. Hope this helps.
