Welcome to the 2021 Great Escape Website!

The Embroiderers’ Great Escape is a weekend of stitch held in March each year at Orewa College, on the lovely Hibiscus Coast just 30 minutes north of Auckland.

Great Escape 2021 is being held on Friday 26th to Sunday 28th March

If you have any questions about The Embroiderers’ Great Escape please contact us here

We hope that the line-up of tutors and the range of classes that we have on offer for you in 2021 will entice you to join us for another weekend of stitching fun.  We are able to offer three overseas tutors again this year: Tracy A Franklin (UK), Dianne Fisher (Australia) and Margaret Lee (Australia).

Please don’t forget the Exhibition. Take this opportunity to share your work – we all love to be inspired by each other’s handiwork. The Exhibition theme is “Somewhere over the Rainbow”. We also have a General Display category if you have work you’d like to display that doesn’t fit into the other Exhibition categories.

As always there will be some traders to tempt you, a Steptoe table where someone else’s trash may become your treasure and of course raffles. You are also invited to our Saturday Night Dinner at an additional cost.

So come and join us for a wonderful weekend of stitching and other fun!
