Oxford Beginner Kit/Book

Are you just starting out with Oxford rug punching and need the basics?  We have put together a kit that will get you started in this fun and versatile craft.  Our beginner's kit includes a 10 X 10 frame (inside dimensions), a fat quarter of monk's cloth and your choice of boxed Oxford punch needle.  In general, the fine needles are best for light worsted or sport weight yarns and finer, while the regular needles can accommodate yarns up to bulky weight (including multiple strands of lighter weight yarn.)  If you are making chair pads or other items that need to be cushiony you will want tall loops, such as a #8 or #9 will produce.  if you are making wearable items you may want short loops to reduce weigh, such as a #13 or #14.  Are you making just good rugs for underfoot?  Probably a #9 or #10 would suit you.  Not sure what size needle you need?  Would you like a beginner kit with a larger frame?  We are happy to help you sort it out and customize your starter kit - just email us
