Punch needle embroidery was one of the techniques that caught my attention in my childhood.
Artisans used to put up stalls in trade fairs and show us how to do it. Also very often they used to visit my school to show the children this cool craft . We used to call this as pick pick embroidery back then.
Knotted garden is a small project that I did this week. I haven't decided about how to finish this one yet. The punch needle and the threads are available here
