WAW ‘What a Weekend’

2017 Tutors: Alison Wilson, Fiona Macrae, Glenys Fry, Karen Brodeson, Chris McGuigan, Julie Clemett, Kerry Seeley and Jane Lester

‘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.


“A feast for the eyes, a meal for the brain, a nibble for the fingers”.

The class booklet for 2021 is now available.
