Krissia Thaiane. Creative type. Punch needle embroidery enthusiast 👊🏻 www.krissiathaiane.com Kits and needles coming back soon ⏳

This is a sneak peak of future kits to come. I’ve been experimenting with embroidery hoops (as they are easier to find in other countries, and much cheaper to ship). Future kits will include a hoop, punch needle and embroidery floss. I’m hoping to have them in the shop by the end of the month. ____ Just as a heads up for anyone who already has the needle: the orange thread is embroidery floss, and the grey one is very fine yarn! If you’re looking to cover large areas, fine yarn is MUCH cheaper than embroidery floss. __ And finally: I’m featured on @hawthornhandmade ‘s blog today! Check out their page for the interview and tips on starting punch needle embroidery.
I think I’ve worked on this piece longer than anything else in my life. I pretty much do one or two colors a day whenever I get a chance. My goal is to be done by the end of the month. Fingers crossed 🤞🏻
Happy Thursday! As much as I love embroidery, I also love drawing. My goal next month is to work on more of these large scale “doodles” as I call it. My work on Insta is pretty colorful, but I live in black and white. There’s nothing more satisfying than a brand new black marker gliding on some crisp white paper 🙌🏻 ___ For the month of November I plan on releasing a few limited edition kits. I also plan on having some @amy.oxford punch needles available in my shop. My goal on here was never to sell kits, but I decided to put some together in hopes of getting more people exposed to embroidery. In the future I’ll only have very small quantities available at a time. ___ I’ve also heard from a few of you that shipping is way too expensive. I get it. I’m trying to make a few kits with as little packaging as possible so the shipping cost comes down a bit. All of this will be announced towards the end of the month. ____ There are only a few kits/needles left in my shop and if you use the coupon “ILIKETOPUNCH” you can get $5 off anything until Friday. ____ #punchlikeagirl #notyourgrandmascraft #punchneedle #punchneedleembroidery

Here’s a look at how the loops form on the other side of the project. I get asked all the time: “How does this work? How do the loops stay in place?” I like to say “it’s magic!” but in reality, this is a lot like wearing Spanx. The fabric keeps the yarn in place because it creates tension and holds the yarn together. I’m sure I could have come up with a better metaphor, but I hope you get the idea 🤷🏻‍♀️
Little bit of an ominous shot, but I’ve been trying to get an intro out for a while, and what better way than to do it than makeup-free, at the end of a long day in my creepy basement? __ My name is Krissia Thaiane. The minute after this picture was taken my hair went back up in a bun. I was born in Brazil and moved to the US when I was 10 years old. I have a kid that drives me insane in the best way possible, and a husband that pushes me every day to keep making cool stuff. I’m 28 years young and my hobbies include trying new desserts, making frequent trips to Trader Joe’s and putting things in my online shopping cart and then convincing myself I don’t need them. __ I’ve always been interested in experimenting with new materials and making stuff. I picked up a punch needle about 4 months ago and haven’t stopped. I also like to knit, and paint, and embroider and draw. __ It takes a lot for me to post a picture of myself on the interwebz but I believe you should get to know the people behind the photos you see everyday on your feed. I’m a real human being, and even though sometimes I don’t get to reply to all comments and messages, I just wanted everyone to know that I read all of your comments and I appreciate all of the kind words you have shared with me. My goal here is just to keep sharing my work and hope that it inspires someone out there to get creative ✨
Started working on a commission for a friend. I’m using a #10 punch needle from @amy.oxford. This piece is pretty big (2’X3’) but I find that using chunky yarn usually makes the project go by fast. ➡️If this is something you’d like to see as a kit in the future, let me know in the comments. I’m planning on getting a couple of needles to sell in my shop either separately or as a kit. ➡️For all of my international friends: shipping is expensive. I hear you. Im trying to come up with a way to ship the punch needles so you can pay less for shipping. Stay tuned. ➡️Also, that’s my kid in the background while the dryer is running. Because you know. #momlife

Alright you guys. My first batch of kits were shipped out yesterday. I’m starting another pre-sale tomorrow at 6pm ET. This time I’ll have 40 complete kits, and 20 punch needles. I understand some of you are new to this and need all of the materials, and some of you just need the needle to get started. This is a bit of a huge undertaking for me as I am a one-woman show, so don’t miss out. Orders placed tomorrow will be shipping next week (either on the 10th or the 11th). ______________ If you bought a kit, I have a tutorial now up on YouTube that you can follow along in order to get started. And if you haven’t already, check my last post for a chance to win a free punch needle!

Thanks to all of you who purchased a kit! They are now sold out!! If you missed it, let me know in the comments. I might do another round of kits if there’s enough interest.
As a reminder: kits will be available for pre-sale tomorrow morning at 9am ET. I expect to be shipping them out on Monday, so make sure you don’t miss out. All kits include a punch needle, frame, and embroidery floss.
Also in the shop. Posting closeups so everyone can see the texture 🤔
This piece is now listed in my Etsy shop. Link in bio. 👆🏻
This piece is taking me FOREVER to finish, but it is only because I’ve been busy getting kits together for everyone. For those of you who have asked, I will be shipping internationally, but please be aware of the shipping costs/custom’s fees/shipping times for your own country. The kits will be available for $49 each not including shipping, or duties that may occur. See the link in bio for shipping policies.
Good morning fam. I wanted to let you all know I am SCRAMBLING to get kits together for everyone. I'm working with a punch needle supplier and I'm hoping the needles will be in by Friday. Pre-sale for kits will begin at 9am (ET) on September 29 on my Etsy shop, and the kits will be mailed the following week. The kits will consist of a punch needle, embroidery floss, and a 6X6 linen stretched canvas with your choice of a pattern or just blank if you'd prefer to do your own thing. Only 20 kits will be available so make sure you get yours. I will be shipping worldwide, but please make sure you know what your country's customs fees are (if any). My etsy shop has my shipping policies so take a look before you order. ___________________________________________________ I've also set up an YouTube channel where I'll be posting tutorials soon. In the meantime search for "Krissia Thaiane" to see the most of the videos I have on Instagram. I've heard from a lot of of people that these videos help them relax and deal with anxiety, so on YouTube you'll be able to make a playlist. ___________________________________________________ Finally, my website www.krissiathaiane.com is live, and it will be where I'll have blog posts, tips, collaborations, videos and tutorials. Make sure you are checking back for updates.
