Within each ATASDA branch, provision is made for smaller member groups to be established.

These groups may be formed on a geographical basis, a group of friends who are members or members sharing a mutual interest in a particular area of textile arts, or with no particular common interest just a passion and love of things 'textile'.

A minimum of 5 members is required to establish a Group.

In Queensland, we're always looking for textile artists in other parts of the state who would like to co-ordinate regular meetings in their area. For more information about setting up a group, email the This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

There is currently one group in Queensland.

ATASDA Scenic Rim Group “Women of the Cloth” meet at Beaudesert Community Centre.
Meetings are held monthly on the fourth Friday of the month, January through to November: 9.30am for a 10am start til 2pm at the Beau Care Facility, Tina Street, Beaudesert, QLD 4285. Tea and Coffee supplied, Bring a plate of Healthy Food for a shared lunch, BYO plate and cutlery.

The group is open to new members who live in the area. Our mission is to give a sense of community and encouragement to all that attend, to share our ideas, dreams and values with our group and the wider community, and to learn and share new techniques and work actively to further our textile arts practice.
