Fancy Stitches Opens in Melbourne

Posted by carolom on February 24, 2008

Back in November I wrote about a wonderful exhibition called “Fancy Stitches” when it was here in Adelaide.

I was pleased to hear that the exhibition is going to be opening in Melbourne soon….you can see the details on the poster below.

If you get the chance, go along and look at this inspiring, heart warming and sometimes sad exhibition that captures the reality of living in a country that has been ravaged by HIV / AIDS…and the amazing strength, courage and creativity of the Women who tell their stories through the Fancy Stitches embroidery collective.

Photo essay of Fancy Stitches Exhibition can be seen in my blog here….
