Zoom used to be about scale. Now we know it as a global online meeting space.

During this Blogging from A to Z Challenge, I have zoomed in on different things that touch on the theme metal meets textile. I hope that I have been able to entertain or inspire you.

Perhaps you want to give yarn or metal wire a chance, either for the first time, or by picking it up again after many years?

Remember to look for your stress-free status, to honour your hands and to hold on to your sweet spot of joy!

Thank you for your attention, I appreciate hearing all your input – you give this blog a meaning.

Finally, here is a hint to those of you who have joined this challenge and are doing the Scavenger hunt: You’ll find seven of the words scattered across my A to Z posts. No, not telling you which ones.

I have always liked the idea of mixing hard metals with soft techniques. This year, my theme for the A to Z challenge is “Metal meets textile”. From A to Z, I talk about work with metal wire, textile techniques like crochet and knitting, show some pieces I’ve been working on, share some thoughts on metal, textile and jewellery. I hope that you’ll find something of interest to you!

  1. There are many posts that I missed reading due to pressure of work, but this was one of my favourite blogs in this year’s challenge so I will be reading them all eventually.
    I saw some full size wire knitted breasts/torso in a jewellery gallery in Saltaire once and I wondered how they were done – I have more idea now! But your challenge contained so much and was so well researched – congratulations!


    • I’m glad you enjoyed it. A challenge like this becomes a bit like “post bombing”, I really enjoyed it but also look forward to slowing down a bit again now…
      Thanks for sharing so many of your own thoughts and memories, that makes me learn new things too.
