Journal for Weavers, Spinners & Dyers
The Journal exists to further the aims of the Association and to provide:
- an interesting and informative magazine for those involved in the crafts
- an opportunity for the exchange of ideas
- instructive articles to encourage wider experimentation
- an effective advertising space for suppliers
The Journal is published on behalf of the Association of Guilds of Spinners Weavers and Dyers. A small team of enthusiastic volunteers publishes the Journal quarterly in spring, summer, autumn and winter. It covers a wide range of textile subjects, including articles on historic textile techniques and cutting edge modern design. We published an extra issue in summer 2009 to celebrate the life and work of Peter Collingwood. Subscribers received the Peter Collingwood Issue as part of their subscription. It is now available as a back copy.
Ecotextile News magazine is the environmental magazine for the global textile and clothing supply chain and is published six times per year as a magazine delivered direct to your door. It is published by MCL Global and is read by the world’s leading clothing brands and retailers and the most forward-thinking textile manufacturers and industry innovators.
We also publish the bi-annual Eco-Textile Labelling Guide and were co-founders of the RITE Group, which is a not-for-profit organisation dedicated to Reducing the Impact of Textiles on the Environment.
Selvedge is a magazine that acknowledges the significance of textiles as a part of everyone’s story. We are surrounded by cloth from the cradle to the grave and by exploring our universal emotional connection to fibre we share the stories and values that mean the most to us. From why we love the sound of a needle pulling thread through taut linen, to why we are fascinated by the clothes we wear and the fibres we unknowingly rely on. There are many sides to every story and Selvedge is dedicated to finding and nurturing textiles from every angle. We believe that textiles unite all humanity and in surveying the development of society it is clear that from a spider’s web to the world-wide web, textiles appear as the protagonist.
