Quick Punch Machine




This is a Quick Punch machine I had given to me as a gift 15 years ago from an old lady that was a family friend. Her son in law imported them into Australia from America. they work by battery I havent seen another one like it I notice on some of the blogs that some girls do needle punch so I just thought I would show you this I did the horses head A long time ago the hair on the mane is brushed up with the small brush in the photo the brush is called A teasel.you have special reels of cotton to use in it I dont think I can get them now As the man who sold them got sick and went out of buisness I dont know if they still sell them in America You punch on the wrong side of your project then turn it over.
Hugs Mary.

Hi Mary, they still make the punch needle but it is different now. I remember when those came out. I know a lot of them you just punch it by hand and the embroidery thread just feeds from the other side.

Mary, it's me again, I didn't see an email address on your blog, but I just wanted to take my hat off to you and your husband for having such a great family. With my DH and me only having two children I don't think I will catch up with you on grandbabies.
Have a great week,
Bonnie

Punch Needle is getting really popular now! I'd love to learn how to do it. Another thing to add to my list I guess! Horse looks great!
