WAW ‘What a Weekend’

2022 Tutors. Back Row: Sue Lucas & Jill Maas; Front Row: Maree Burnnard, Julie Clemett & Fiona Crowther-Akers

‘What A Weekend’ embroidery workshops are run annually by Nelson Embroiderers’ Guild at Waimea College, Richmond, Nelson.

Each year we invite the best tutors to present a range of workshops, some suitable for beginners and others designed to develop skills of experienced stitchers.

The exhibition of work from previous years is a firm favourite and our Merchants Mall always generates a lot of interest. Both are open to the public.


WAW 2023 is happening on 23-24 September at Waimea College, Richmond.

An exciting array of classes to suit all levels of ability is on offer again this year. The booklet of classes is now available and we encourage participants to register on-line. The WAW committee and Nelson Embroiderers’ Guild look forward to hosting this stitching weekend of learning, fun and friendship once again. See you all in September!
