Anyone here ever try it?  I tried a search for it but didn't see anything much.  I inherited most of my Grandma's bizarre crafting tools from a lifetime of crafting.  She's got some stuff I can't even identify.  The collection of rug punching needles had me scratching my head.  I'd hooked before(the police told me to get off the corner  Wink ) but never seen anyone rug punched.  Thank God I just started a crafting night at church.... I mentioned the punchers and one of the other gals talked me through it.  I'll take a picture when I'm finished.  But its insanely addictive.  And a wicked awesome way for me to use up my yarn stash and random burlap coffee sacks.  I was curious if there were some secret punchers lurking around.

Hi,
I imagine that rug punching is a lot like punch needle embroidery.  you get a punch needle (that's the hard part, finding the needle), draw or transfer a design onto the back of the cloth, towel, whatever you are punching. and using the needle you punch the thread of choice through the design to fill in color.  the front of the item you are embroidering will have a pretty pile design on it.

I hope this is helpful.
