Publications & Educational Articles

The American Tapestry Alliance produces two publications covering historical and contemporary tapestry topics. Tapestry Topics is published three times a year by a volunteer staff and available to members only. Back issues beyond two years post-publication date are available to the general public. Consider becoming a member today to receive the latest issue of Tapestry Topics. The second publication produced by ATA, CODA, features the most compelling articles published in Tapestry Topics within a two-year period. CODA is printed and sent to academic researchers, gallerists, and curators to promote greater interest in tapestry as an art form.
