WAW ‘What a Weekend’

‘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.


Our tutors for 2023 are pictured above. Back Row from left: Tracey Miles, Dana Pratt,  Chris McGuigan and Julie Clemett. Front Row from left: Jill Wilson and  Liz Moynahan.

WAW 2024 will not be happening this year as ANZEG will be holding their national conference in Dunedin 12th-18th July

We look forward to seeing you in 2025 for another amazing weekend of stitching, learning, fun and friendship in  beautiful Nelson.
