Welcome to our new website – thank you for your patience as we build it.

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 2017 is being held on Friday 24th to Sunday 26th March

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

2017 is a special year for The Embroiderers’ Great Escape as we will be celebrating our 25th Anniversary and the committee has been working hard to make the weekend extra special.

We have 3 Australian tutors joining us this year –¬† Christine P Bishop, Annie Huntley and Margaret Light as well as the usual mixture of local tutors.

The Exhibition theme for this year is of course in keeping with the celebration¬† – “Silver Threads among….” We hope many of you will take up this challenge or at least bring some of your completed work for one of the other 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!
