Collection of ephemera related to Taranaki fibre artist Viv Davy's tapestry of a washing machine titled 'An Old Friend'. Collection includes a hand-drawn pattern, a thread 'recipe' for the bottom section of the tapestry, a sample of the black wool from the tapestry background, a sample of raw silk thread, a light green sample of hand-dyed silk thread and six mixed thread samples.

The collection was donated by Davy along with the tapestry following the inclusion of the tapestry in Puke Ariki's art exhibition 'Home Work: Taranaki Art Now' (7 June - 24 August 2014).
