I was just busy enjoying August when I realized it was the middle of November – where has this year gone??

Christmas is fast approaching and the New Year has LOTS of exciting times ahead so I would love if you would take a pause with me to enjoy an afternoon of tea, cake and a whole lot of fun and inspiration!


Yes we are having a…

NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts Afternoon Tea Christmas Party

… open of course to any sewers, embroiderers or crafty minded enthusiasts.


It wouldn’t be an event without some fun goodies so we will have some of the NEW machines on display for you to have a nosey at including the NEW Echidna Exclusive VE2300 Embroidery Only machine (which will hopefully land in NZ just in time – so you’ll be the first to see it!), the NEW Stellaire XJ1 and the Echidna Exclusive Toucan 2 embroidery app bundle as well as other product AND some awesome goodies for you to take home with you!

Party Theme

You might be thinking to yourself, maybe this party should have a theme..

Well you’re in luck!

You might have seen the article I wrote in the recent Echidna Bulletinwhich came out this week talking about sustainability and how sewers and embroiderers can get involved and do their bit towards this important issue our societies are facing. 

In the spirit of that, we thought of having a theme of sustainability for the event and I would love to encourage everyone to come along to the event either wearing or bringing with you, something that you’ve REUSED, REPURPOSED or RECYCLED. 

It doesn’t have to be complicated or extravagant, it can be as simple as a patch on your top or bag that you’ve embroidered using fabric from a preloved top or bedsheet or a pair of earrings made from crafty supplies (thanks for the idea Jenny Scott 😉)

BUT there is a very EXCITING prize for the most creative piece… 

One of the brand new TOUCAN 2 Apps with Samsung Galaxy Tablet!

 Yes that’s right, we have one to give away on the day!

(thanks Gary!!)

I’ve also invited my lovely friend and sustainability advocate, Amy Conlon of the sustainable fashion brand, Outliv and the Country Coordinator of Fashion Revolution NZ to come along and help me judge for the prize (since let’s face it, I’m way to biased to do it on my own 😜) – thank so much Amy

And a BIG Thank you!

Thank you to everyone who has been a part of making this year fun, inspirational and crafty and especially thank you to the lovely Marilyn Giles for helping me organize this event!

Spaces are limited so grab your ticket ASAP!  Looking forward to seeing you all there!
