    • Wellington sewing initiative Re Sew remakes the suffrage petition
      • 24 Sep 2018
      • St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington
      • Photo by: ELEANOR WENMAN/STUFF Over the last couple of weeks, an old boardroom inside Wellington Museum has been transformed into a fabric workshop. Wellington sewing initiative Vinnies Re Sew embarked on a Suffrage in Stitches project to recreate the 1893 suffrage petition in kind. The organisation is asking individuals and groups to pick up needle and thread to stitch 546 different panels, representing all the pages of the suffrage petition. Each panel will be stitched together to create a 274 metre long textile piece, to be displayed inside the museum early next year. Vinnies Re Sew textile recycling coordinator Caroline O'Reilly with some of the completed panels for the Suffrage in Stitches project being run in Wellington Museum. The panels are inspired by women – whether that's women that signed the petition 125 years ago, or someone within the family that was a role model. Re Sew textile recycling coordinator Caroline O'Reilly has been organising the workshops, as well as making her own panel, inspired by her mother, Mary O'Reilly. O'Reilly created her own panel with green thread in honour of her mother, Mary O'Reilly. She also wanted to chart the journeys of the women on the path to gather signatures, so she added meandering green thread to her piece of fabric. "The petition went around the country, winding up roads, through valleys. So all these loose threads represent all the roads they travelled on." Throughout September people had been dropping by Wellington Museum to talk about women who inspired them and pick up a new stitching technique or two. "People who haven't even thought they were creative have come up with some great things," O'Reilly said. Re Sew volunteer Irihāpeti Te Aho had dropped by the workshop to start on her fifth panel: one honouring the wāhine of Ngāti Kahungunu. "Women have got a strong voice in Māoridom that people don't know about," Te Aho said. She joined Vinnies Re Sew a few months ago and said she'd found it a great way to help and give back to the community. Funded by Saint Vincent de Paul, Vinnies Re Sew works to upskill people with their sewing skills, while redirecting materials from the landfill. The call is still out for people to take part in Suffrage in Stitches – the fabric workshops will be back at Wellington Museum in October, December and January for a week each. So far, people from as far as Queenstown and the Coromandel, as well as some people in San Francisco have put their hands up to make a panel. The deadline to have a fabric panel in is February 27. * For details on Suffrage in Stitches, email - Stuff Reporter: Eleanor Wenman Permalink

    • A Sustainable Society

      • St Vincent de Paul Society Wellington
      • While the use of recycling in sustainable living is sometimes seen as an extra (and often avoided) financial burden, over the last year Vinnies in Wellington has made efforts to prove the opposite, by opting for low-cost methods of waste disposal.

    • Church Update – 04/05/18

      • Miramar Sal­va­tion Army
      • Things I learnt whilst collecting at New World Miramar this week … They have Free WiFi You can use free wet wipes to clean the trolley handle before you start shopping You can dispose of your plastic bags for recycling Peter Croft’s favourite fruit is oranges at the de Kids still get a free slice of luncheon at the deli There are 110 white tiles in each section of the floor 1kg of pre-packed lemons cost $4.99 To ensure you have clean hands there is a hand sanitiser in the vege section – on the left One guy from USA has lived here for 3 years and only just discovered we have 10 cent coins There is a guy in Miramar who views shopping as the least favourite thing to do If you forget your grocery bag, you might be able to borrow a boomerang bag. There is a typo in the sign Thanks, see you soon (Can you spot it? Ask Lucy and she will agree with me!) One thing I did notice was a family who tied their dog up outside while they did their shopping. I wonder if anyone asked the dog what he wanted his life to look like – to be in a loving family but not able to come and go freely, or to live in the wild and not be loved? This Sunday we will consider where we find ourselves – how do we measure up with what we want? – and how can we prepare ourselves for what is just ahead of us? See you Sunday. Pastor Dave
