Busy Bee by Isa Beniston and PUNCH! Studio for IPNRHD 2019

Busy Bee by Isa Beniston and PUNCH! Studio for IPNRHD 2019

April 13, 2019, Worldwide and at the PUNCH! studio in Solana Beach!

The PUNCH! studio is located at 430 N. Rios Avenue, Solana Beach, CA 92075

In 2010, Oxford instructors created International Punch Needle Rug Hooking Day (IPNRHD): a day that provides workshops and demonstrations across the US, Canada and beyond! This year the date is set for Saturday, April 13, 2019, and we want to make it easy for you to participate!

I’ve designed this pattern with my daughter Isa (of Gentle Thrills) for this year’s event, and we’ve chosen an image of a bee, in part to welcome springtime and to also create a BUZZ for Punch Needle Rug Hooking! The pattern is for an 8” table mat or wall hanging and can be downloaded for free as a PDF or purchased as a black line on 100% cotton monk’s cloth suitable for punch needle or traditional rug hooking (see Busy Bee Pattern button below). The finished size of the printed monk’s cloth is 18” x 18”.

PUNCH! Studio will be hosting an event on April 13 (see button below) and many other Oxford Certified Punch Needle Instructors will be hosting events for IPNRHD 2019; for a complete list of instructors visit And don’t forget to share your finished Bee on Instagram using the hashtag #IPNRHD or on Pinterest at International Punch Needle Rug Hooking!
