Selling Yarns 2013: Success
Craft ACT thanks the ANU Research School of Humanities and the Arts for its support for Selling Yarns 3: Weaving the nation’s story. Selling Yarns 3 was an unprecedented success, a sell-out for all the events almost as soon as registrations opened. This can be contributed to the momentum and reputation of Selling Yarns 1 and 2 which created a groundswell of support for Indigenous textile and fibre practices and re-established the pre-eminence of Indigenous artistic traditions on the national stage.
Selling Yarns 4 in 2017 is set to build on the success of this year's event.
