E. Anne Inder

Learning, creating, and sharing has been Anne’s lifelong mantra. After 32 years, Anne retired in 2011 from the field of education and found rug hooking through Joan Foster.

Anne is a fibre artist who enjoys working with all types of fibres and textile and creating with her hands. Her work shows her appreciation of nature, colour, the whimsical, and Celtic art.

Through Punch Needle Plus, Anne offers both online and in-person workshops, allowing her to share her knowledge and encourage people to explore and express their own creativity. As a visual learner, she understands that everyone does not learn the same way – some teaching strategies may lead to just as much laughter as learning.

Anne has studied her craft from some of the best instructors including, Joan Foster, Diana Dove, Venissa Fancy, Heather Gordon, Doris Norman, Simone Vojvodin and Amy Oxford, to name a few and still continues to take courses when she can.

Through Punch Needle Plus, Anne is available to teach workshops (online or in person) in Punch Needle, Punch Needle Embroidery and Rug Hooking. She is also a supplier of punch hooking supplies and tools, and has begun producing punch needle patterns, based on her original artwork.
