Some fun facts about Dunedin:

•Dunedin is the oldest city in New Zealand. Founded in 1848, it owes its roots, as well as its name, to Scotland (named from the Gaelic for Edinburgh - Dùn Èideann). It’s called the ‘Edinburgh of the South’.

•Dunedin is known as the wildlife capital of New Zealand.

•It is one of the best preserved Victorian and Edwardian cities in the southern hemisphere.

•Dunedin can lay claim to many New Zealand firsts: the first university, first medical and dental schools, first daily newspaper and first public art gallery.

Conference 2024 in Dunedin

is nearly here!


We look forward to welcoming all of you to Dunedin for Conference 2024 ‘A Stitch in Time’ and a celebration of embroidery. We say all of you because we’ve had such a wonderful response, with over 300 attendees registered so far.


We still have some spaces at the Association weekend and in some of the classes, so if you’re thinking about registering, there’s still time. Registrations close on May 31. Registrations made after March 31, 2024 incur a $25 late fee.

It’s going to be a fun Conference, with the all-important BGM meetings, wonderful speakers, and merchants (and wow!! have we got some great merchants for you). You already know how exciting our tutor’s classes look, from the number of classes that are full. And the icing on the cake: we are celebrating ANZEG’s 50th anniversary all week.

Information for all your entries into the exhibition is available here, on the website. Once your forms are sorted for the exhibition, it will be time to start thinking about what you need for the week at the Conference... the Conference dinner at Larnach Castle is going to be ‘Golden’ so dress up – the more gold the better.

Needle Nanny, Conference 2024 copy.png


Conference 2024 are producing a special commemorative needle nanny to celebrate 50 years of the Association.


If you've never heard of a Needle Nanny, they're a handy little

badge-sized piece of metal that is magnetised... this means you can drop your needles on them and not lose them in the fabric!


If you would like to purchase one (or MORE!) follow this link:

(orders are via the Registration System)

A big THANK YOU to our generous SPONSORS...
