What is Punch cross stitch?

Is punch needle the same as rug hooking?

Fiber fiends may be thinking this sounds a lot like rug hooking, and while it’s definitely similar, it’s not quite the same. Punch needle punches the loops down into the work, whereas rug hooking uses a different tool to pull the loops up through the work.

Why does my punch needle keep coming out?

Most likely, your loops are coming out because you are pulling your needle tip too far away from the surface of your fabric in between stitches. If you pull your needle too far out of the fabric, the stitch comes out with it.
