The Crimson Thread of Kinship is a 12-metre-long embroidery representing the unfolding story of Australia. It depicts the changing landscape of the nation, beginning with Aboriginal occupation of the continent and finishing in the southern night sky.
The Crimson Thread of Kinship interactive was developed by the National Museum of Australia with support from the designer Sharon Peoples and the ACT Embroiderers’ Guild.
