SENZ is a craft event with a difference!

Welcome to SENZ

This will be the first time SENZ has been in Central Auckland since we first started back in 2003.  The Expo brings together Cardmakers, Scrapbookers, Stampers, Mixed Media Artists, Cake Decorators, Bookmakers, Jewellery makers, Fabric Artists,  Quilters of all ages, for a weekend of creativity, ideas, shopping, displays, socialising, and classes. 

Its very much a hands-on expo where you get to try the products, make projects, see displays and enter competitions.  

This year we will be expanding the Cake Decorating area and having a dedicated Cake Decorating corner with demos, displays, tastings, and competitions to enter.


SENZ is a NZ-owned show that aims to promote NZ businesses and products. 

Enjoy fantastic crafty shopping in one location: Artfull Crafts, Create, Azza European-Style Scrapbooking, Close to my Heart, Montarga, Scrapaholics, Stampin UP, Hastings Rubber Stamps, PaperVine,  Go Bake, Cards by Kay, Mentis, KiwiThreadz, Fix Design/Imagine If, Rubbadubbadoo, Stamp Zone, and more. SENZ offers you the chance to shop at all your favorite scrapbook and craft retailers in one location.

Classes & Crop Night

As well as shopping there are over 50 classes to book into...there will be extra class times this year with a 5pm class on Friday and Saturday nights so in total there will be 11 classroom times over the weekend. For more information about classes - see here. 

Class lists will be released in late May, and prepaid passholders get earlier access to the class bookings page.   Classes book up very quickly, so if you are interested in attending - be sure to buy your pass early!

The Crop Night will be held on the Saturday night up in the cafe.

There are Pre-SENZ competitions planned for both Papercrafters and Cake Decorators to enter, more information soon! The theme for both will be Kiwiana so start planning some projects and think about entering, there are divisions for all abilities. In addition we are continuing the traditional Pin Competition which will also have a Kiwiana theme. This is sponsored by Stamp Zone.

Exhibitor applications are now open for the 2014 show.
