Welcome to the Surface Pattern Design Guild Website
SPDG is a community of professionals in the textile, surface, and pattern design industry.
We are a 100% volunteer run, not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support our
members by connecting them with networking opportunities, business resources, and
continuing education, as well as offer them invaluable exposure.
The Guild is open to designers, illustrators, artists, and students within our industry.
The majority of our members provide commercial design services, often intended for
large scale production, for a variety of markets including apparel, home furnishing,
home fashion and tabletop, quilting and crafts, paper products, and even electronics.
