Bunka Embroidery vs Needlepunch Embroidery

So far there are only a few differences between the two.  I am learning a lot and this is a fun process.  I decided instead of having 2 punches going at the same time I would work on the same design with both techniques.  Differences so far….

  1.  Threads. The Bunka thread is a stretchy thread that is woven together and you have to gently pull to untwist the thread.  Regular Embroidery floss you divide into 3 groups and use 2 ply.
  2. Thread again, you don’t cut the thread off the spool or card into lengths as regular embroidery.IMG_20180117_131716197IMG_20180117_131800764_TOP
  3.  The hooping.  Bunka is used on a wooden frame that the design is tacked to while Needlepunch is in a hoop.  As I don’t have a frame it will be a hoop.IMG_20180117_132159924  This is the design I will be working with.  Till tomorrow.
