CTR Punch Needles

I am happy to be able to offer a high-quality punch needle at an affordable price! The CTR needles are all metal, have comfortable handles, and come with pre-cut depth gauges to adjust the height of your loops; gauges can be cut into smaller pieces for precise adjustments by you. This is the only needle I know of that has a bevel indicator right on the handle to quickly you show you the direction the needle bevel is facing while you punch.  Each needle comes with a threader.

Be sure to order a few extra threaders, so you are never without!

Natural Weavers Cloth

The most suitable foundation fabric for punch needle embroidery. It is a blend of cotton/poly, with a tight weave and even grain. Natural color is similar to muslin, but better for punch needle work, as it does not tear as easily.

$2.50 fat 1/4 Yd (22x18")

$5.00 fat 1/2 Yd (22x36")

$10.00 Full Yd (44x36")

Fusible Woven Interfacing

When you want to work punch needle embroidery on wool, felt, or other fabrics that are more loosely woven, draw or transfer your pattern to the interfacing, and then iron this woven fusible interfacing to the back of the fabric; your loops will stay in the foundation fabric much better. Adjust your depth gauge to allow for a loop long enough to go through the two layers of fabric.

Locking-Lip Hoops

These Susan Bates hoops have a lip on the inner ring that locks over the outer ring and holds your foundation fabric tightly. It really helps to have one of these Hoop-La hoops when doing punch needle embroidery. They come in several sizes (colors will vary.) Be sure your entire pattern fits inside the inner ring of the hoop for the most efficient and flawless stitching. Susan Bates Locking Lip embroidery hoop for punch needle
