Book: History and Stitchery, Needlework Treasures of Tasmania
Needlework has created life's essentials throughout history. Tasmania's early years as a remote colony were dependent on stitchery, from ship's sails to the clothes on people's backs. This booklet looks at Australia's southernmost state and its creative heritage, from Aboriginal necklaces which predated European arrival, to the superb crafts of contemporary artists. All have been inspired by this island's unique geography and resources.
