Primitive Rug Hooking
Rug hooking is both an art and a craft where rugs are made by pulling loops of yarn or fabric through a stiff woven base such as burlap, linen, or rug warp. The loops are pulled through the backing material by using a crochet-type hook mounted in a handle for leverage.
Punch needle is similar to rug hooking and entirely different. Picture a pen with a needle attached to the end. To use it, you thread the needle with your yarn or thread, then punch the needle end through your hooped fabric and pull up a loop of the fiber. It goes much faster than traditional embroidery, and you can mix and match different fibers, weights and stitch heights to create to-die-for textures and designs. It’s a lot of fun and there are a ton of tutorial videos to help you get started.
