Searching for fun things to do at home? Why not spend your down time learning how to punch needle in a live streamed class with Rebecca from Made By Me Workshop.

Open your ClassBento Box and discover the art of punch needle embroidery, which has been described as painting with yarn. Via Zoom Rebecca will take you through your materials and then you’ll get crafting. Learn how to stretch fabric onto a hoop, transfer a design to your fabric and how to use a punch needle to complete your chosen design.

Each box comes with 3 designs (as pictured) and 1 set of yarns which can be used to complete whichever of the 3 designs you choose. You can also add additional sets of yarns if you would like to complete another of the included design, if you're really keen add another 2 sets and complete all 3.

Please indicate which colour yarn set you would like on booking. You can add on an additional yarn set in any of the three colours for $25 in the checkout.

Punch needling is the answer to indoor activities you’ve been searching for. You’ll learn how to create colourful patterns and imagery in the comfort of your own home.

Such a mindful craft, Rebecca was amazing in demonstrating the steps and personal tips, so satisfying the results and from the comfort of home (online). It was very exciting to receive the package with quality material and everything ready to go. Super enjoyable, and will keep creating.

Carmen Shields • Jun 2020

Thoroughly enjoyed this workshop and loved being able to link up from the other side of the country via Zoom! Rebecca is a fabulous teacher who not only knows her craft inside out, but explains it simply and uses the technology so well it feels like you're right there with her. Really fun morning! Thank you again :-)

Jessica Lonard • Jun 2020

I found this class incredibly enjoyable. Receiving the kit in the mail was also very exciting - especially with all the little treats! Punch needling (is that the verb?) was a lovely craft to learn - it’s very satisfying to see results so quickly. Rebecca was a great teacher, so easy to understand and helpful. I look forward to doing more of her classes in the future.

This course was lots of fun. Rebecca is a great teacher. Also very responsive and kudos for finding great alternatives to the products that didnt get shipped on time because of covid. My adjustable punch needle is great. Highly recommend this course if you want to learn punch needle!

A great class to do by Zoom, delivered beautifully by Rebecca. Inspiring, interesting and fun.

Rebecca Waterfall • May 2020

LOVED the class. Rebecca made it extremely easy to navigate and learn, which isn’t easy over an internet platform! So happy with my new skill and what I achieved in a short 1.5hrs. I’ll definitely be exploring Needle Punch further now. Thanks Rebecca

Rachel Launders • May 2020

Teaching craft to the uncrafty me via Zoom is challenging. Rebecca’s multiple camera angles really helped see what I needed to do. Pretty happy with what I achieved in the class time.

Francine Costa • May 2020

Thanks for a great workshop Rebecca I had such a good afternoon.
I have wanted to try punch needle for some time but have not known how to even start.
The kit was lovely with everything needed and your instructions and assistance was wonderful.
I managed to finish my first piece and I’m pretty happy with my first attempt.
