I know there are many temari makers in New Zealand... a good number of them are around Christchurch.
I immediately sent a text to one of my very best girlfriends who was born and raised in Christchurch. She replied a few minutes later to tell me she was actually there and she was still getting shaken about as many small shakes were continuing. I haven't spoken to Louise for a few weeks and was unaware that she was heading home for a visit.

We Aussies and Kiwis always enjoy a good natured ribbing of each other, but today our hearts and prayers are with you.
If you can please say a prayer for these people.
