The Australian Forum for Textile Arts (TAFTA)

TAFTA started in Mittagong, New South Wales with a meeting that focused on the lack of trained textile teachers in the crafts. Over 6 years and more meetings, Brisbane, QLD hosted FORUM ’80, concentrating on workshops, and communication among a wide variety of textile crafts people.

As a result several decisions were made, including the decision to go ahead with a magazine that finally became a quarterly publication “Textile Fibre Forum”.  Learn more about TAFTA and look at this Australian publication at:
