Welcome to the 2018 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 2018 is being held on Friday 23rd to Sunday 25th March

We hope that the line-up of tutors and the range of classes that we have on offer for you in 2018 will entice you to join us for another weekend of stitching fun.  We are able to offer 3 overseas tutors again this year: we have Alison Cole and Alison Snepp from Australia joining us and Owen Davies from the UK. Owen enjoyed his time so much when he was here in July 2016 that it wasn’t difficult to get him to return – now more of us can learn from his expertise.

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 “Changing Seasons”. Don’t forget that we now 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 elses 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!
