Our organization is a family of dedicated artists and designers who generously share what they make and how they think about what they make. This creates a dynamic, wonderfully colorful, caring atmosphere in which we all continue to learn about the field and its practitioners. Surface Design has expanded into a multi-disciplinary field that encompasses ancient as well as the most recent technologies. We continue to seek fresh and innovative ways to help one another express what is in our minds and hearts.

Few arts organizations can boast our success! We continue to grow and flourish because you are committed to creativity and eager to learn about the work and thoughts of your colleagues. We encourage networking and promotion of your work through competitive exhibitions, conferences, publications, an image library, swatch library, and a website. Through these channels we also bring you professional advice, discussions on safety issues, technological updates, educational opportunities, and studio recipes. The Journal, Newsletter, Conferences, website, and special events are just some of our tools for putting you in touch with the pulse of our membership. Our staff is devoted to finding out what we can offer to help you on your way.

Join our more than 4000 members – a broad spectrum of textile practitioners including studio artists, industrial designers, educators, technicians, curators, gallery owners, interior designers, students, and enthusiasts.
