Loving Threads

FOUR SEASONS WALLHANGING

FOUR SEASONS WALLHANGING

A community arts project by Loving Threads Sewing Circle, who work together in the Factory, Belgium Avenue Neighbourhood House.
This luscious wallhanging featuring fruits and vegetables is designed to inspire people to eat fresh food and enjoy good health.
The hanging was launched by Dure Dara at North Richmond Community Health Centre in August and will be displayed in each of Yarra's Health Centres on a rotating basis. The women are sharing their wonderful skills (in crochet, embroidery, painting, and applique) and also their awareness of the importance of healthy eating.

Community Artists:
Fatma Barat, Firdevs Gunes, Khoa Le, Elsa Leong, Thuy My Nguyen, Nga Nguyen, Lien Nguyen, Atike Sevik, Huong Tran
