    Is the book describing the embroidered works located in the Parliament House in the gallery overlooking the Great Hall still available? If so, can one obtain a copy?

      Dale, I’m honestly not sure. If it is the one I’m thinking of (published quite a while ago), the best bet might be to contact the Australian Parliament House direct (if you can’t actually just visit their bookshop and ask). I believe that the Art and Craft Collection is managed by the Department of Parliamentary Services – details on their web site
