I’ve been lucky enough for nearly a year now to belong to what is rapidly becoming THE place to find textiles and fiber arts on line: TAFA, or the Textiles and Fiber Arts List. I joined last fall, and one immediate benefit was increased traffic to my blog, website, and Etsy store. Plus, lately I just go looking at the various designers – the artwork available through this site is absolutely amazing!
TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List is a membership based organization that seeks to access larger markets for its members by using social media and other web based opportunities. Members include working artists, textile businesses, galleries, suppliers and other fiber/textile people who have an established web presence. All artists are juried in to TAFA to maintain the quality of the work available.
It is a web site that brings together fiber art and those interested in fiber art. The talent, the beautiful fiber art, and the quality products of its members is quite extraordinary. Currently there is a drive to raise money for a new web site, an improved site both for those browsing, shopping or connecting. Connect those who work with handmade fiber arts and the artists and those who are selling handmade fiber art. The new site will provide such an improved experience, convenient, easy to use and beautiful to look at. Want a mini preview? Here’s the link you’ll want to read.
Also, now is the perfect time to join & become a TAFA member. The cost is minimal and benefits great. That info is also on TAFA’s site. Beware – the cost of membership will go up once the new site is active.
Do this – you’ll be glad you did!
