  • Calling all creative enthusiasts – unique quality supplies at amazing prices
  • Your shopping will help the planet and people with disability
  • Choose from sewing, craft, and haberdashery items


Operated by Achieve Australia, The Sewing Basket is a unique retail experience. It's a place where people living with disability are employed in our teams selling 100% donated items that can’t be found anywhere else.

Join us at Marrickville Town Hall for the Big Basket Sale and browse through over 15 stalls unique fabrics, patterns, patchwork, embroidery materials, knitting and crochet yarn, and much more. Engage in live demonstrations and immerse yourself in the world of creativity and craftsmanship.

Visit on any of the 3 days or all of them. Stalls will be restocked every day.


The Sewing Basket has stores located in Balmain, Caringbah and Newington in Sydney and a store and warehouse in Kincumber on the Central Coast.

Take this opportunity to chat with their dedicated volunteers about the impactful work they do in supporting people living with disabilities to lead fulfilling lives of their choosing. The Sewing Basket has 74 volunteers across their 4 locations.

The Big Basket Sale will be held at Marrickville Town Hall from Friday 24 to Sunday 26 May, with restocking happening daily. As advocates for sustainability, we encourage you to bring your own shopping bags to carry your treasured finds.

Entry to the event is free, and all proceeds from our stores directly support people with disabilities. Join us in celebrating creativity, inclusivity, and community spirit at The Sewing Basket's Big Basket Sale.
