Soft punch

Some years ago it was hard to ”make some noise” with textile in Sweden. During my Art University years we were a tiny group who worked alone. I am so happy that has changed now! It’s the comeback of textile – and ”with a vengeance” :-) I love it!

I’m so glad to be a part of this great community of crafters.
Found these pair of boxing-gloves that I did at Art University…. they speak for them self about how I felt back then :-)

Velvet boxing-glovers with traditional Swedish folklore embroidery. The stitch is from the province of Blekinge called Blekingestitch (Blekingesöm).

    Way to let ‘em have it, Inger. Those misguided estimations of craft are so dreary!
