I wrote a post the other day about June, and then on Tuesday I was listening to the radio and they were interviewing her about her work with the Shut in Stitchers. I enjoyed listening, and then this morning I thought oh I can put a link up for others to hear the interview too!
So here it is.
The Shut-In Stitchers
Originally aired on Afternoons, Tuesday 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.
