We’ve gathered some of the best punch needle kits for beginners and some more advanced kits so that you can embrace this craft. Before you buy your punch needle kit check out our needle punching for beginners post to learn all the basics.

What is punch needle embroidery?

Punch needle embroidery is the technique of using a punch needle tool to loop material (usually yarn) through a cloth base to create a design. Punch needle pushes the material down into the cloth to create a design whereas hooking pulls material up. It’s a craft that started in the 1800’s but has become increasingly popular in recent years because of its beautiful textured results.

Punch needle kits are a great way to get started and there are hundreds on the market to choose from. Many kits will come with the punch needle tool but some won’t. You can buy the tool separately from places like Amazon and Etsy.
