Publications

Since its debut in 1976, the quarterly, full color Surface Design Journal -  one of the most prestigious publications on textiles in the world - has enticed members to renew and receive another year of visual and conceptual inspiration. It features articles on a theme, interviews, Exposure for members' work, and Spotlight on Education.

Unsurpassed in the world of non-profit arts organizations, the custom-designed NewsBlog replaced the printed Newsletter in 2010. It features stories about members' creative accomplishments and resources for enhancing creative growth and building community. The eNews email announces opportunities, exhibitions, and Board news.

Use ad space in the Surface Design Journal and SDA website to get your product or event on the radar and into the hands of our international textile arts community.
