In 2021, Te Manawa was kaitiaki to a number of beautiful embroidered panels as part of the show Suffrage in Stitches, developed by Wellington Museum and upcycling collective Vinnies Re Sew. The display honours our whakapapa, history and the power of New Zealanders through 300 metres of embroidered works. These works tell the stories of 546 individuals, families and groups whose action won suffrage for women in 1893. Today we ask you to share your story using the grid template below to design your own panel of work. What symbols will you use to tell your story?
