Talent abounds in our small town. Embroiderers from Levin have produced a replica of a Gil Hanley photograph entitled Golden Summer. Each embroider were given a photograph of a section and separately worked on their panel. Working on their own piece of fabric, each didn’t know what piece of the photo the others were working on. Each were free to choose their own threads and techniques. It took about 18 months to complete the large piece, which was framed and called “Summer Gold”. This has been on show recently at Te Takere Library, along with a copy of the original photograph. Several of the ladies who took part are also members of my Quilt Guild.
