Our Presenting Partner, Australian Design Centre (ADC), will host the SCCTA 2018 and will award one winning recipient an opportunity to exhibit in their window gallery. The awards exhibition held at ADC during Sydney Craft Week aims to bring the quality and diversity of textile craft and design to a broad audience.

ADC is just one part of an  extraordinarily diverse eco-system of making in Sydney and presenting the Seed Stitch Contemporary Textile Award 2018 during Sydney Craft Week is our way of showcasing many of the city’s talented makers.

Sponsor 1Skein Sisters is Sydney’s exciting new yarn store offering a thoughtfully curated selection of creative contemporary yarns and home for the crafting community.

Skein Sisters is the culmination of years of dreaming and planning by long-term friends Debbie McDonald and Janine Smith. Both growing up in homes filled with knitting and sewing. Frustrated by not being able to find what they wanted locally, the friends set about sourcing the products they love to delight and inspire local crafters.

It is a love of delicious yarns and accessories, together with a desire to share these wonderful treasures that led to Deb and Janine opening the store, where comfy couches offer a place to relax, knit, crochet, chat, share and attend workshops.
