The Association of New Zealand Embroiderers’ Guild Inc. Biennial Conference is being held from the 12th - 18th July 2024 in the lovely historic town of Dunedin, Otago and is being hosted by the Otago Embroiderers' Guild .
Even though New Zealander’s are still experiencing difficult times still created by the ongoing COVID-19 reoccurrences and recent weather events, the Conference Organising Committee have been working hard to create a safe, fun filled event that will entice you all to register.
The event will be kicked off with Extensions Day and the Opening of the National Exhibition & Prize Giving on Friday 12th July 2024. This will be followed by the ANZEG Association Day and BGM on Saturday & Sunday, with workshops commencing on Monday 15th July 2024. During the week there are more speakers and events to go to, to complete your experience.
It is a pleasure to be able to showcase 18 New Zealand nurtured tutors and 3 international tutors who are teaching 36 fabulous workshops. There is something for everyone and we are grateful for the willingness of these tutors to share their knowledge and assist you to perfect your technique.
So we welcome you to Otago, to reunite with fellow stitchers from all over the country, laugh, stitch and enjoy this amazing event.
