Keith had a 'smashing' experience
as he was lining the underside of the verandah.
A piece of timber slipped off the scaffolding
and crashed through the window pane of the door into the Needlework Gallery.

On Saturday, the 11th of November
opened the
Letters of the Alphabet
Sampler Exhibition
Proceeds were donated to the
Hamlin Fistulas Hospitals Trust
located in Ethiopia.
This amazing hospital performs reconstructive surgery for women
with fistula problems caused by prolonged childbirth labour
or an obstructed labour.
Reginald Hamlin - a Napier man - and his Australian wife
pioneered this surgery and established the hospital many years ago.
To follow are just a few of the samplers that were on display.
