Northland weaver invited to collect flax after saying it is hard to find

Cassandra Moar says the most difficult part of weaving is actually finding the flax so when she received calls from several people inviting the Whangarei weaver to collect flax she was "amazed".

Ms Moar appeared in the Northern Advocate two weeks ago as part of a story on a study which proved the safety of wahakura - woven flax bassinets. Ms Moar is contracted by Northland District Health Board to make wahakura and said it was hard to find flax in Whangarei and she often travelled out of town to find it.
