Welcome to the TAFA Team!

TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List is a membership organization that seeks to find new markets for its members using social media and other networking tools. About half of our members are also Etsy sellers. We aim to become THE destination for the best source of fiber art, textiles and related needle arts on Etsy.

TAFA is about product. All of us on Etsy have something to sell. We represent quality, innovation, a sensitivity to the environment, an interest in the world, and an enthusiasm for the historical connection contemporary artists have to those who have passed before us. Our materials include cloth, yarn, thread, dyes, an infinite assortment of needles, machines, scissors, and other supplies. We represent old and new, traditional and contemporary. Some of us recycle what was destined for landfills. Some of us are working artists while others represent projects in disadvantaged areas of the world. Together, our products speak about the world we live in.

TAFA is about people. We live all over the world. We are black, white, pink, brown, and some may have green or purple hair. We are women and men who believe that a small business can make a difference. We are passionate about our work and hope that you will share in that enthusiasm. We are people who understand that our work is part of a larger community where we need buyers and supporters to keep us going. Visit our shops, get to know us, interact with us. We are all part of this beautiful world; a wonderful tapestry of languages, customs, traditions, innovation, creative thought and a love for the fabric that binds us together.

Please share our blog with your family and friends. Visit our Etsy shops and our TAFA website for more wonderful work. We love comments, so please feel free to let us hear your voice. We thank you for your support.
