The Bonnet Display

Norma Bean had given her partner and daughter instructions and a diagram of where all the items were to be displayed to aid her talk. It was very impressive to read some of the stories and the names of the women who had been sent to Australia. The display had even more meaning when Norma gave her talk. The bonnets and their historical references were chilling at times as Norma recalled some of the aspects of the women's lives.
If you would like to learn more about the history and theproject vision visit
A plea from Norma Bean, would all those that have had a pattern please make and send your bonnet!
