A friend of mine has bought a quilt at an Op Shop (2nd hand shop), and it has a label on it, it was made by a woman for her son.
We're wondering if the quilt was misplaced or lost and would love to try and find the maker.
The name is an unusual spelling, and New Zealand is not a large place, so a few phone calls have pretty much ruled out it the maker being in this country. We also don't have a long history, being a relatively young country, so the members of the family my friend spoke to pretty much knew every ancestor since the first boats came here, and this woman wasn't one of them.
So, we're searching further afield, thanks to the internet, and asking you guys!
The label has the son's name... and made by "Joan Parrish".
Just a stab in the dark, but maybe someone can help?
