SUFFRAGE IN STITCHES

Saturday 10 September - Sunday 20 November

Suffrage in Stitches is a unique handcrafted exhibition honouring our whakapapa, history and the power of New Zealanders. It pays tribute to the women and men who came together to win suffrage for women in 1893, a major milestone in our nation’s story.

The exhibition features stitched, sewn and embroidered panels, one dedicated stitch for every person who signed the 1893 suffrage petition. Suffrage in Stitches is the work of 546 individuals, families and groups from New Zealand and beyond, of all ages and abilities. Together these panels run 300 metres.

Created by Caroline O'Reilly and toured by Wellington Museum.
