The Mount Felix Tapestry has been a three year community project involving stitchers aged 6-94. Its 44 panels tell the story of the No. 2 NZ General Hospital at Mount Felix. The stories chosen remember and pay tribute to the bravery of 27,000 wounded New Zealand soldiers who were treated at the hospital during WWI, as well as the nurses, doctors and members of the community who treated and cared for them.
The Tapestry was designed by Andrew Crummy, whose credits include the Prestonpans Tapestry and the Scottish Diaspera.
Over 500 stitchers have contributed to the tapestry, from members of the Embroiderers’ Guild to primary school children, elders groups, even shoppers in the Heart, visitors to Riverhouse and the Libraries in Elmbridge have had a chance to contribute.
