So You Think You Can Design

The 2020 Textiles Challenge

We're delighted to launch So You Think You Can Design - Textiles 2020 - the Victorian design competition for Textiles students.

Sponsored by Bernina Australia and Wool4School, this is a fantastic opportunity to engage your Design & Technologies classes and promote our learning area to the wider community.

This year's challenge is inspired by flora and fauna, and note that your students' SYTYCD entries can also be entered into the Wool4School competition.

Stage one entries should be submitted by July 17, and if your students make it through to the finals, they'll be competing in December in a live design challege, where they have the chance to win a Bernina L450 overlocker.

Click HERE to download the information sheet, which includes the challenges and all the necessary information for you to get your students involved.

Contact Laura at to register and with any questions.

*Note this competition will run again during National Design & Technologies Week in October - but only Victorian students who take part now can win the Bernina overlocker.*

Thanks to our generous sponsors for their help and support with SYTYCD Textiles 2020
