Shearing Capital of the World

Te Kuiti is known as the Shearing Capital of the World. For a town of just over 5000 we had two living knights at one stage - my brother'n law Sir David Fagan and the all Black forward Sir Colin Meads. This quilt was made to celebrate He Tane-nui o Te Kuiti Great men of Te Kuiti. The photo shows the thread painted portion of David shearing sheep. With all that is going on with Rob at the moment I thought i would use a flash back photo today to keep up with my blog posts
