Koala Conventions organize annual Embroidery & Textile events, where ladies and gents can learn or enhance their skills in a wide variety of 2 or four day embroidery and textile workshops. We organize our events to ensure that you have a relaxing and enjoyable time, whilst being taught to the highest standard and receiving value for money. Quality catering is included in the workshop fees and offers a wide selection of hot and cold meals for morning and afternoon tea with dishes to cater for all special diets.
Koala Conventions specialise in not only bringing to you the very best and inspirational selection of workshops but also to ensure that our students have an excellent social time and feel looked after, if they are travelling alone to our event. Our students range from early 20’s to our oldest and long term student of mid 90’s who makes the journey every year from Alice Springs. For many, this event is like a huge family annual holiday where our students meet up and share time with old friends and make new friends along the way. Koala Conventions is ‘More than just Workshops’, we are a friendly and safe environment, something to look forward to all year!
During the event we offer Evening presentations, a ‘Cheese & Wine’ evening, ‘Trivia Evening’, day tour to the wonderful Eumundi Markets and Montville and much more!
During the entire week of the event our shop is open for business, from 7.30am until 5.00pm each day of workshops. It is full of absolute goodies, an embroiderer’s and textile artists paradise. Many of the items found in our shop are not easy to find elsewhere and even better – all in one place. We also have a great shop on our website, open year round!
