This display can be enjoyed for the skill and creativity of the makers, as well as the audio presentation which tells about the history of the area, and draws you into the detail of the work. Well worth a visit

An excellent overview of each panel highlighting key aspects and t he various stitching and processes used. The identification of important landmarks and their significance to the district was well done. Beautiful work with amazing results.

I love this tapestry / artwork. The hours of work that has gone into this exhibit is mind boggling. I am in awe of the volunteers who did the work. The acknowledgment of each person is most thoughtful and I appreciated it as well, even though I had nothing to do with the work. This is again one of my... More

As a quilter, I particularly appreciated this exhibit, which was a labour of love for many women over hundreds of hours. it depicts the story of the area and is brilliantly conceived and well displayed. I didn't expect it to be a "show" in the manner that it is - you have to get there for a showing at special... More

Don't miss this exhibit which is housed at the "I" in Deloraine. The four panels are each outstanding examples of what a community can do together. Very creative.

This is such a spectacular piece, created by the clever people of Deloraine. We saw it at the craft fair and having a guide on-hand to explain some of the scenes was very helpful and made the experience even more worthwhile. Well done to the people from Yarns!

We had seen the tapestry a couple of years ago during the Tasmanian Craft Fair, but at that time it was missing the light show and narration. This time we got to see the full show, and this makes you appreciate the work that went into the creation of this massive piece of art. This appreciation is increased when you... More

Hello Seeker of Knowledge Thanks for your review. I just wanted to let you know that the Aquaphonium is under-going extensive work as we speak. It will receive a new coat of varnish and major repairs plus a new filter and water pump. The Aquaphonium is maintained by volunteers who do a great job and we really appreciate their efforts....
