Ngā mihi, haere mai ki te Otautau Museum. Greetings, welcome to the Otautau Museum.
Virtual Exhibit - The Jacksons
Tuesday, 25 February 2014
On 11 June 1918, the
reported that the Otautau Red Cross had organised an autograph quilt to send to the men overseas in WWI.
Last week, we were given a newspaper clipping from 1976 (
, 21 April 1976) mentioning the quilt again.
So, we're wondering - why did they call it the "famed Otautau quilt" and does anyone know where the quilt is now? Your help is always appreciated as we try to unravel Otautau's past.
We're open Wednesdays and Sundays, 2pm-4pm, and by request. Your comments are always welcome!
