Brides of Otautau

The new display - Brides of Otautau & Beyond - opened last Saturday coinciding with the inaugural Three Churches Flower & Quilt Walk.

Brides of Otautau & Beyond features 16 dresses from women with a local connection. The dresses range from 1934 to 1973 and are on loan from their owners. Fabrics include satin and crepe occasionally accompanied with Guipure or Chantilly lace.

There are three sets of mother and daughter dresses represented: Daphne Kennedy and her daughter Judy Gimblett; Mary Smith and her daughter Heather Guise; and Peggy Manson and her daughters Margaret and Sheila.

The display ends 29 April so make sure you see it.

As always, there is no entry fee. We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
