New beginnings…

New beginnings…

Hello you lovely people! It’s been a while since you’ve heard from me and I sure hope you are all well, in good health and happy!
My break was rather unintentional and long, but the good news is: I’m back, and I have some very exciting news to share with you: maRRose and Studio Koekoek are teaming up, bringing you 3 new, unique punchneedle kits, and we both could not be more thrilled about this!

Punch Needle Kit “Just Breathe”

I’m a huge fan of Studio Koekoek – I love their modern take on cross stitch/embroidery, and was happy to find out they’re much into punch needling as well.
How utterly fun to have been asked late last year by Studio Koekoek to design 3 new punch needle projects for them, to be launched during the Handwerkbeurs in Zwolle (this week!)!

The 3 designs – graded from small, medium to large projects – are part of their new range of punch needle kits. As said, I’m really thrilled, and so proud of how all three turned out. Of course, I hope you’ll be equally delighted!

Punch Needle Kit “3D Plant Hanger”

In the past I have been asked a lot about my designs being available in a handy kit, with all materials ready for you to start punch needling right away, and now you all can!
The bonus of them being produced by Studio Koekoek is that you know you’ll be working with top notch, mostly ecological materials. I honestly loved working with them!

All three kits will be for sale at the Handwerkbeurs (that runs from Thursday February 13 through Sunday February 16, 2020) and in Studio Koekoek’s webshop, and come with a VERY nice introductory discount (valid until February 16, 2020 – 24:00 GMT+1).
This very nice discount is applicable as of NOW, when you preorder via Studio Koekoek’s webshop! Woohoo!
It goes without saying that all designs will be on display at the Handwerkbeurs, and I will be on the Studio Koekoek-stand myself on Thursday and Saturday – I’m on the “meet & greet” list 😉 – to answer all your punch needle questions, demonstrate this oh-so fun technique, and sell and sign my book “Punch als een Pro”. I sure hope to see you there!

Punch Needle Kit “Botanical Cushion”

But wait there’s more… haha!
We’re also offering maRRose/Studio Koekoek-special-punch-needle-kit-workshops, the first ones taking place at Studio Koekoek’s wonderful downtown Amsterdam location! You’ll also find them all listed on my workshop page. Oh, and the Handwerkbeurs-discount applies to the punch-needle-kit-workshops too… just saying ;-)!

  • They look REALLY smashing, Marianne ! – and you have every right to be proud as punch. Goodonyermate ! 🙂
    I especially like the “hanging plant”; and were I not trying to come up with a project to enter into a local competition (knitting), I’d be chancing my luck on having a go at this craft.
    One day I shall; and it’s for sure that it’ll be something from your site.

    • Thank you so much, Margaret! Your more than lovely compliments have made my day! Love, Marianne xx

  • Wat een geweldig mooie punch pakketjes Marianne! Zo mooi en ontzettend leuk dat je met Studio Koekoek samenwerkt! heel veel succes en plezier op de handwerkbeurs komende dagen! liefs Esther xx
