The Power of Clothes
Our Thread Together project has been complemented by a group of committed University of Queensland students who volunteered their skills and energy to create this website for us. Many thanks to Sam Dooley, Rose Heimans, Jing Feng, Nadia Crawford and Hector Richalot for their support and great work.
