Sharing is caring!

If you’re new to punch needle, you may be feeling fully overwhelmed about what supplies to get, what size needle to use, and how to even use the thing.

I hear ya!  A great option to try at first is a punch needle kit that comes with everything you need.

There are a lot of different punch needle kits available out there.  There are modern punch needle kits, primitive kits, and everything in between.

Today I’m going to show you a few of my favorite punch needle kits for beginners. 

This list includes punch needle embroidery kits (using smaller needles like the Ultra Punch needle) and modern punch needle kits (which usually use larger punch needles like the Oxford).

It’s worth mentioning that the kits I’m showing you below are sold by small businesses that are run by people who are seriously passionate about punch needle. I love supporting small business (and I’m sure you do, too!)

Get ready to meet your new favorite hobby! Needle punching is addictive and so relaxing.

  2. I’m not sure if you’ll see this – but thought I’d try. I was lucky enough to get an American Heirloom rug kit at a yard sale for 20.00. Are these good kits? It came with an adjustable needle. I”m nervous to start with this as a first project. Any advice?

    1. I looked on their website and it looks like a kit from American Heirloom would be really good quality! I don’t personally have experience with a kit from there, but I’d love to know how it goes. It looks like they sell supplies to make your own rug, so it might be a larger project.

    1. Hi Marilyn! I replied I’m sorry you didn’t see it!
      I’ll copy and paste here too: When you say abstract, do you mean like organic shapes and textures? If so, I also love that type of punch needle and I’m working on some patterns for that type of thing! If you’re subscribed to my email list you’ll get a notification when I release them and other fun stuff. Thanks for stopping by!
