Coffee Catch Up

Coffee Catch Up

Let’s have a social catch up and connect with like minded sewers, embroiderers and other crafty people!

This is a FREE social coffee catch up for anyone who loves connecting with other likeminded embroiderers, sewers, quilters and crafters – you don’t have to have an embroidery machine to join us!

Feel free to invite your friends! Anyone is welcome to come along (you don’t have to live in Auckland), please RSVP though so I can make sure I cater for enough people.

What to Bring?

If you would like to, bring some of your amazing work with to show us what you’ve been up to (completely optional).

Have you Joined the NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts group yet?

If you haven’t joined the group yet, come join us!

 

Let’s Make Embroidered Patches!

Let’s Make Embroidered Patches!

Have you been wanting to make your own embroidered patches but not sure where to start or what supplies to use?  Can’t find the products you need to make patches locally in NZ?  Come join me in my studio and we’ll go through it all step by step!

In this workshop we’ll cover:

  • Tools and supplies you need to make patches
  • What designs to use and how to make them yourself
  • Step by step process of making patches
  • Ways you can use patches
  • Problem solving common patch making issues

PLUS I’ll include a checklist of supplies needed to make patches AND a written step by step process you can follow at your machine.  I’ll also include 3 FREE patch border designs you can use to make your own patches.

What to Bring?

All the supplies needed for the workshop are included in the ticket price along with tea, coffee and some snacks.  If you have anything special you enjoy drinking or snacking on, feel free to bring it with you (I do have a fridge available for things that need to be kept cold).

Special Deal

I’m running a Getting Started with Machine Embroidery workshop on the same day before this one, if you want to come along to both workshops I’ll include lunch in the price of your ticket 🙂

Getting Started with Machine Embroidery Workshop Auckland March 2021

New to machine embroidery?  Not sure where to start?  Looking to buy your first machine?  Purchased a new embroidery machine and feeling a bit overwhelmed?  This is the event for you!

There’s a bit of a learning curve when you’re getting started with machine embroidery and it can be pretty overwhelming to go through this on your own.  This class is designed to work with the knowledge you have (or don’t have yet) and help you get on your way.

We’ll cover a mixture of theory and hands on in a fun environment (because machine embroidery is meant to be enjoyable!) to help you get your machine out of the box and complete your first project. I have several Brother NZ demo machines available and all materials and supplies provided along with tea, coffee and some snacks otherwise just bring yourself!

Coffee & Chat to Round off 2020!

Coffee & Chat to Round off 2020!

Can you believe it’s November already!  

After cancelling the bigger end of year event I had planned in October I’ve really been feeling like we need a little bit of something social to finish off the year.  I did a poll in the NZ Machine Embroidery Addicts group and you guys agreed!

However, in light of the risks that we still face from a health perspective, I’ve decided to just go for something small at my home studio instead.

🧵 Let’s get together for a coffee and a chat to round off 2020! 🧵 

Whether you’re a newbie just starting out or very experienced embroiderer come join us!  This is going to be a small, casual get together and there may also be some freebies from Echidna Sewing involved.

Since we’re doing this event at my home studio space, spaces are very limited.  The ticket includes tea/coffee/drinks along with a selection of catered lunch and nibbles and of course great company to refuel your inspiration and social tank!

I also have some Brother NZ sewing, embroidery and craft demo machines here which you’re welcome to have a nosey at too if there is something you have your eye on for Christmas.
