I am currently working on my first punch needle kit and I ran into an issue. One whole section of the canvas pattern is very loose (from me going over it several times and making mistakes) and now the thread won't attach to this area. I was wondering if I could cut a piece of canvas from the extra around the border and glue it over the loose section.
Thanks in advance.  Smiley

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

That sounds like it might work, or you could try to stiffen it back up with a glue mix, Modge Podge or even Petal Porcelain.

I would take another layer of fabric & back your work with it & then put it in a hoop to continue working on it. Having the extra fabric in the back would give it a little more grab. Hope it works out for you!
