ATASDA NSW will be organising a feature stand at the Craft and Quilt Fair, Darling Harbour, Sydney Thursday 22 – Sunday 25 June, 2017.

This year the Show returns to Darling Harbour, to the newly completed Exhibition Centre, and we are inviting all members across Australia to be involved.

For now, we are asking members to start work on items for the display.

The theme is ‘Magical Creatures and where to make them’ – a chance to create both 2D and 3D works. Following the success of Branching Out last year, we are again hoping to have a space that really comes alive, while showcasing a wide range of skills and techniques.

Some suggestions (and feel free to let your imagination run wild!) –
Quilts, banners, hats, cushions, sculptures, basketry, costumes, magical story books, teapots/ cosies, 
dragon flies, loveable monsters, seahorses, dragons, lady bugs, owls, animated flowers ...

Things to consider:

  • Items must not be very fragile. In this setting they may be touched by visitors.

  • Please think about how your item will be displayed. If it is to be hung or pinned to the wall,

    please include attachment points that will take the weight.

  • We can accommodate SOME works on plinths. Please email us as space will be limited.

  • Items need to be portable and packaged in a way that they can be stacked safely with other


  • If your item is very large, you may be asked to deliver and collect it yourself from the venue.

    Talk to us.
