What’s Going to Happen?
Gary Walker – Echidna Sewing Supplies
I am very excited to announce that we will be joined by Gary Walker from Echidna Sewing – one of the best in the industry! Gary is flying over to New Zealand to join us for this special event. Echidna is super keen to support New Zealanders and our quest for embroidery supplies and support! Gary will be running a day of interactive education, demonstrations and potentially a Q&A session about embroidery for us (keep an eye on the NZMEA group where we will be collecting your burning questions for Gary!).
If you haven’t met Gary before, he is super passionate about embroidery and sewing and shares my passion for wanting EVERYONE to enjoy the experience of creating embroidery, whether you are a seasoned embroiderer or just starting out. He tells me he’s pretty entertaining to listen to as well 😜
I really appreciate Brother NZ‘s support for the event, they have allowed us to use their showroom space and their embroidery machines for the day which is a MASSIVE support in terms of keeping costs down. Thank you so much, we couldn’t have done this without you!
Mandy Chamberlin – Veronica and Me Embroidery and Designs
I don’t like to toot my own horn but I have invested a lot of my own time and energy into organising this event so maybe I should at least introduce myself for those of you who don’t know me 😜.
I’m Mandy – I started and run the NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts Facebook Group and I am incredibly passionate about machine embroidery (that felt like an intro at a legit addicts meeting! haha). Not only am I passionate about embroidery but I am passionate about making embroidery fun and exciting for YOU!
My business is Veronica and Me Designs – I offer local embroidery services within NZ and I offer embroidery digitizing services globally (with flat rate pricing in local currency for my NZ and Australian based customers). My focus is really on the customer experience as I believe embroidery is a journey, not a chore and everyone should enjoy it – whether you are creating pieces for yourself or others.
If you’re keen to connect with me, you can find out more about me here.
What’s Included with Your Ticket
The event is going to be held at Brother International located at Level 5, 52 Symonds Street in Auckland CBD. There is plenty of parking available for free on the lower level 2 carpark of that building. If, however, that carpark does become full, additional paid parking is available across the street.
Finger foods will be provided during the day to keep us on our game and ready to soak up the creative atmosphere!
If you haven’t yet, join my NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts Facebook Group – we will be discussing details about the event and discussing the content we want Gary to cover on the day!
ALSO – Gary is very generously providing ALL attendees with a selection of 10 design packs from the Echidna Range (valued at $200)!
There will also be other surprises on the day 🙃
What to Bring
You don’t really need to bring anything. However, if you would like to bring some recent projects along or perhaps items you’ve had issues with and would like some advice on – bring them along!
