Erin Flanagan Lind of Harp & Thistle Stitchery, a featured Holiday Market vendor, makes Punch Needle Embroidery, an ancient rug-hooking technique that she has shrunken down into a painstakingly and meticulous process in order to make christmas ornaments, watches, wall hangings, wearable art, and accessories. She says that “each tiny loop is hand punched with love.”
