The Textiles and Fiber Arts List

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’s Mission:

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.

Our common connection weaves us together: a love for textiles and fiber art. New and old, traditional and contemporary, TAFA embraces inclusiveness of the world market.  Members are selected based on quality of work, having a professional web presence and value added to the group.

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!

  • Thanks for the write-up on TAFA, Linda! I have the great pleasure of meeting each member as they come in and getting an eagle eye view of the treasures we have. It really is amazing and humbling! I am so excited about our new site and about the impact it will have on the whole textile and fiber art community. Thanks for all that you have done to help move us forward in this vision!

    For those of you who are interested in joining TAFA, this is our membership page:

    Membership is currently $48 and will go up to $75 once the new site is launched. It is a one-time fee. Members are reviewed and let in based on the quality of their products, their web presence and their long term goals as a business. TAFA membership is not for hobbyists, but we know that many are inspired by what they see.

  • My pleasure, Rachel!! I too am excited about the possibilities. Already I have begun to network with some really cool people.
