It will be available at the Tjanpi Desert Weavers gallery in Alice Springs following the launch.

Yes, I was thinking same, I must get.

I lived through DV all my childhood & it's hard not to forget it. I think I did ok by my kids but it's hard to break that cycle of abuse. Its seems to pass on into other generations. I tried my best not to put my kids through that but it wasnt easy.
