Needle Punch Embroidery Class

March 8, 2014

Railroad Museum LogoDuring the Victorian Era, women created many beautiful items for their homes using a variety of needlecraft techniques.  One of these was needle punch embroidery, a fun and easy-to-learn craft.  Needle punch embroidery has been used to decorate clothing and decorations since the ancient Egyptians, and was used extensively by the Russians in the 17th century.  It regained popularity during the Victorian era when home decorating trends leaned towards embellishing everything. 

Come try your hand at this fascinating craft and take home a floral creation suitable for framing.  Once you’ve learned the technique, you will be able to create many items for your home, from bookmarks, to throw pillows, to wall hangings.
