In close communities like the Southern Highlands, networks of practitioners have flourished, drawn together by a common interest in needlecraft and for more reasons than utility.
Suppliers of materials and tools have set up shop to meet their needs. And others have journeyed here from afar to experience the joy of stitching and learning among friends. Today, the Southern Highlands enjoys an unparalleled reputation for the quality of its needlecraft artists, stockists, authors, publishers and associations.
Emulating the success of the international BookTown phenomenon, the Southern Highlands has declared itself to be the world’s first NeedlecraftTown – and we proudly invite you to go in search of the needlecraft experience among the picturesque towns and villages of our Highlands home along the Needlecraft Trail.
