Women’s Suffrage

Stitched by: Doreen

Pattern designed by: Doreen

This piece was stitched by my mother, Doreen, in 1994. She was part of the tapestry group who wove the Women’s Suffrage tapestries that hang in Parliament House. Doreen is surprised and pleased that I have taken up stitching and passed this framed piece to me. It was very special to stand under the Suffrage banners during our occupation of Parliament House in an XR (Extinction Rebellion) action last year.

Submitted on behalf of Doreen by Jayne from The Knitters and Stitchers.
