The Threads Together project established a multinational group of 12 women of diverse faiths and cultures who have moved to Perth from abroad, often from areas of political or military conflict.
The group began with an introduction to Pullars and its history of dyeing, before screenprinting tote bags.
Through the universal language of crafts, the group began tie dyeing and embroidery.
Emblems and positive affirmations were sewn onto the quilt, inspired by individual and collective identity.

"I loved the project. It was a different experience for me, I was together with many people."
