Magazines: Let’s Learn! 

IMG 9129There are a wide range of off the shelf and industrial magazines relevant to textiles. It isn’t possible to name them all here but a few have been listed to get you started. 

Note that many magazines in the shops feature craft based textiles. Whilst many of these magazines are inspirational remember that this is only one aspect of textiles so try and read a range of magazines from different sectors of the industry. If you can try and read at least one magazine aimed at the textiles industry every now and again.
