Cross stitch project in textile exhibition

The first part of the cross stitch project with my mum Doris Tsui is now showing in a textile exhibition at Corban Estate Arts Centre in Auckland, curated by Cora Allan Wickliffe.

This project features the tartan pattern found on mass produced Hong Kong Shopper or Ahmah bags. It represents over 22,000 cross stitches and over 200 hours of stitching.
