Punch Needle Hooking 
"Show & Share" with Carolyn Ells

By Ti Seymour

A thoroughly captivating talk by Carolyn of this beautiful miniature style of rug hooking! I expected to find a tiny doll’s house with miniature orientals packed in her suitcase - such endless talent.  Carolyn praised Kathleen Menzies as the inspiration behind her passion for this craft and pointed out the portability from the miniature hoop and punch needle to the tiny skeins of wool and floss.  She passed around the different styles of needles for us to inspect and gave us the opportunity to try punch needle for ourselves. The green square was the first punch needle piece she made and decided smaller pieces were her favourites to hook. Some lucky family members have received a few pins as gifts.  Needless to say, there were a few members making notes of the names of the equipment she recommended and I daresay would have ordered online by the end of the day. Thanks Carolyn - great job!
