An Invitation to a Celebration

Wednesday 17 March 2021

In May 2020, Tasman District Libraries invited people of all ages from across Te Tau Ihu, The Top of The South, to stitch a word or image relating to their experience of Covid-19 Level 4 Lockdown to a piece of fabric. These embroidered panels were then pieced together by textile artist Christine McGuigan into a quilt. The quilt forms a patchwork of our communal experience of an extraordinary time. 

We would love to invite you to come along to the unveiling and celebration of the 2020 Lockdown Quilt in the Constance Barnicoat room at Richmond Library, from 5.30pm on Friday 26 March; the one year anniversary of Level 4 Lockdown. 

It is free to attend and everyone is welcome.
