What do textiles/fibers + associated processes offer artists that can't be achieved in other media?
Surface Design Journal is a quarterly print publication that comes with membership in Surface Design Association. Its 80 pages are produced in full color and printed in the USA.
Each issue of SDA Journal is designed around a theme. It may focus on a technique, such as hand embroidery; a genre, as in mixed media; aesthetic directions, like soft sculpture; or a part of the world, such as Africa.
International in scope, articles focus on contemporary textile and fiber-based art and design - as realized through concept, process, and materials.
The goal of each Journal issue is to stimulate thought and inspiration.
During 2015 - a transitional year of restructuring for SDA - the Journal will be published 3 times with release dates in late March, July and November. Quarterly publication schedule will resume in 2016
