The Joyful Punch was founded in September of 2017 by Emily Pelich, a DIY enthusiast and entrepreneur from Berlin, Germany. Being fascinated by the ease and fun of punch needle rug hooking, Emily set out to make this craft more accessible for European crafters.

The Joyful Punch is one of very few sources where the European DIY community can find Amy Oxford’s original punch needle, in addition to all other tools and materials needed to start punching: monk's cloth, stretcher bars, a selection of wool, and design templates.

In addition The Joyful Punch offers tutorials and support in answering the most common questions around punch needle style rug hooking. Workshops are being planned for the near future. If you are interested in participating, please sign up for the newsletter below.
