‘As a Textile Designer, I think it's important to be involved with an association that supports our industry.’

‘I have been a member since the Australian Textile Design Association merged with the DIA.’

‘As well as the many professional benefits available to all DIA members, my membership of the Textile Practice Group also provides a forum to network and discuss issues specific to textile designers.’
