A new temporary exhibition at Akaroa Museum

Textile handcrafts go on display at Akaroa Museum

A new temporary exhibition for the summer has opened at Akaroa Museum: Stitch Work.

Akaroa Museum’s collection is rich in examples of women’s handcraft – embroidery, lace, patchwork, knitting, crochet, weaving and beadwork.

The best work is treasured for generations by women who keep them to remember their mothers’, grandmothers’ and great grandmothers’ precision and creativity with stitches.

Stitch Work, the Museum’s summer exhibition, is a celebration of these pieces.

The exhibition includes two spectacular patchwork quilts from the Museum’s own collection last displayed more than a decade ago.
