Our international conferences are a mix of movers, shakers + makers who present and demonstrate the latest ideas and trends in textile arts & fiber media.
We are currently re-imagining the conference model as a smaller, more intimate "intensive" to better engage 21st c interests and best practices.
SDA Members are first to preview upcoming programs and venues.
Review world-class presenters & programming from past SDA bi-annual conferences - both international and regional.
SDA promotes the work of its multi-talented members with international exhibitions. View online gallery presentation of conference-related shows here.
Check out Surface Design in motion as models present the wearable work of our members in a fashionable manner.
View the emerging talent of SDA Student Members in a downloadable format.
Experience the exchange of ideas at past SDA conferences via audio podcasts and digests of conference sessions.
