Suffrage 125 – National Banner Project

I’ve been very busy over the last few weeks with this project and have been to Ferrymead in Christchurch for Heritage week, then to Wellington and the Cabinet Room of the Old Government Building working with Te Roopu Raranga o Manaia and last weekend, here in Dunedin, at the Otago Pioneer Women’s Memorial Hall.

It must be 20 years since I was last at Ferrymead and it was great to be back – I just love it!  It was a busy workshop with many participants young and old.

It was nice to go to Wellington and the Old Government Building and see the place where the banners will finally be hung next year in April.  Working with a friendly group of weavers and glad to learn a new weaving stitch from them.

Back home and a steady day at Otago Pioneer Women’s Memorial Hall.  A big thank you to the Scottish shop for their donation of the Dunedin tartan!
