Young Persons' Virtual Exhibition viewers' choice winner announced

A 'hearty' congratulations to Nate Haisman of South Taranaki. Nate's entry, a Halloween-themed bag entitled 'Trick-or-Treat', received the most votes in the 2020 Junior Virtual Exhibition.

Nate stitched this last year, aged 7, and was the only boy to enter ANZEG's national junior exhibition. He worked very hard on his entry, stitching all the pieces down - especially on the tree which he had position and stitch as he went.


Nate is very excited to receive his prize money and extends special thanks to his very patient tutors Sue Wilson and Dorothy Hughes.

Voting has closed but you can still 'heart' your favourite pieces.


Once again, congratulations to all the young people who entered, and a huge thank you to their tutors and families for supporting them, and to ANZEG's generous prize sponsors.

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.
