The Shut-In Stitchers

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 2:19 pm on 6 August 2013

The Shut-In Stitchers is a group of volunteers who've been teaching quilting to the inmates of Arohata Women's Prison every Saturday morning since 1993. Two decades later and the stitchers are still at their work. Their efforts were recognised last week with an award from Arts Access Aotearoa. June Nixey is the force behind group.
