i love it! then i read your blog about it and loved it so much i went out and got a punch needle. but i'm having issues! the loops don't stay and my fabric ends up with a big hole in it. if i scratch the fibers the hole goes away, but it's so frustrating. what is weaver's cloth? i assume it is very dense with woven fibers?
Uh-oh, I'm sorry to hear you're having problems. There are several possible reasons - e.g. you may be holding the punchneedle facing in the wrong direction. Also, your fabric has to be woven tightly enough to hold the loops in place: when you stretch the fabric in the hoop, the fibres of the fabric are stretched apart.; when you release the fabric from the hoop, the fibres close up again and lock the loops in place. Weavers cloth is coarsely woven compared with quilting cottons etc - it looks more like linen - and has very little stretch.
