Dodie Claypool was known for making beautiful punch-needle mini
rugs. Each rug was a work of art, made from a single strand of
embroidery floss, punched from the reverse side (making the loop)
with a Petit-punch needle. Dodie sold her rugs at miniatures shows
and special consignments from collectors. Before she passed on, she
wrote two books on punch-needle techniques. The books contain
patterns and color schemes.
"Just Add Thread" Kit comes with Vol. 1 & Vol. 2, Petit Punch
needle, material, stretchers, tracing paper, tacks, fusible backing,
and carbon paper. Everything you need, except the embroidery thread
to make your own beautiful rugs.
Dollhouse Miniatures Magazine's June 2000 issue featured 'Just Add
Thread Kit' in their Product Review section.
