International visitiors..

We have a lot of international visitors and shoppers over the summer period and many are enthralled at our amazing community tapestry project.
Allana, a local but has American Citizenship and currently studying there, was visiting her mum for Christmas along with brother, Reece from Auckland. They called in to see if they could do a little weaving before returning home.
Sophie, aged 9 years from Cairns, Queensland in Australia was visiting family with her Mum and Dad over the New Year. Her Dad grew up in Whangarei and Sophie had a Grand-friends Day at school where "Nana's" came to spend the day showing the children how to sew and knit and do crafts they learned as a child. Sophie thought the tapestry was amazing!

Our hostesses are back on deck after their holiday break so I hope to have lots more photos to share of our many visitors working on the tapestry in the coming weeks.

What an amazing project! Having my children contribute and add their little piece feels like they will forever have a part of them here.
