last chance for a free pattern!

This weekend is your last chance to take advantage of my introductory offer of a FREE punchneedle pattern of your choice when you buy my eBook, The Punchneedle Handbook.

Praise for The Punchneedle Handbook:

The book is brief, clear, direct, logical. It includes everything you need to know to get started. And, best of all, June tips us off to the most common errors and explains how to avoid or correct them. I know exactly what I was doing wrong now (several things), and I can’t wait to try it again.
Excerpted from CraftGossip review by Denise Felton

June has done a bang-up job of outlining everything you need to know to get started with this craft: how to prepare your materials, how to thread the needle and punch stitches, how to get perfect outlines and color effects, and how to troubleshoot problems while you’re learning. June also covers the basics of finishing your work and preparing it for incorporation into other crafts. It’s all illustrated with nice, clear photographs.

New pricing will be in effect from Monday, so if you haven’t got around to buying The Punchneedle Handbook yet, now is the perfect time to take the plunge!

(Also on Monday, I’ll have a brand new African-themed punchneedle design to show you…)

    Of all the web-sites on punch embroidery, YOUR’S is the best I’ve seen! I like your designs very much. I got started on the “punch” back in 1990, but quit for a while. Am now trying to get back into it. Since I have a computer now, I can look for books and patterns. How about doing a picture of the southwest ? I sure would like to see that done. Like desert and sunset scenes. I think if anyone can do this, you can. You are great on the punch embroidery. I still have a lot to learn about this embroidery style. So far I’ve done a couple of pictures of “Eagles”, which is pretty neat. I use the Acrylic punch yarn.I got my yarn and needles in Fla; and that was the first time I seen the punch embroidery done, so I just had to try it out, as it was something new to me, as I’ve done everything else on needle works. You keep up the good work you are doing. It’s great.

      Thanks very much, Shirley! The southwestern scene is a great idea – I’ll definitely keep a note of it 🙂
