Mairangi Arts Centre,

20 Hastings Road,


Open daily 9.30am-4pm;

Sundays 10am-2pm.


The Thread That Unites Us

will be featuring an extensive showing of samplers completed by North Shore Embroiderers’ Guild members in 2020. Olwyn Horwood designed a ‘mystery sampler’ and month by month it was given to members (over 10 months).  They are all different and delightful. (Sue Reid’s features on the poster).

Mairangi Bay Art Centre has ample parking and Mairangi Bay itself has a plethora of cafes for you to enjoy after viewing our exhibition and we will tempt you also into buying a ‘treasure’ made for you by members to make your visit memorable. We look forward to seeing you there.

North Shore June 2021 exhibition

Postbag Challenge 2021:

Entry forms available now

ANZEG are again running their very popular Postbag Challenge. This is an open exhibition that any embroiderer (worldwide) is welcome to enter (it's not just for Guild members so have a go!).

This year's theme is 'Diamonds are a girl's best friend' so stitch your sparkly best! ANZEG hope to exhibit the pieces at the Expertise Events Craft & Quilt Fair, Hamilton in September. If the pandemic ruins our fun again, don't worry... it will still be exhibited as a virtual exhibition right here on the website for everyone to admire.

ANZEG are again offering a fantastic cash prize for the winner, and are pleased to announce that Sewing Supplies have come on board as well, with extra prizes for pieces stitched using at least $20 (or more, who could resist?) in their gorgeous threads.

Full rules are listed in the Entry Conditions (click here). The entry forms can be found on the Education page.
