TAFA Members on the Map!

All of our TAFA Team members belong to TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List.  We are an international organization of fiber artists and textile businesses.  Half of TAFA members have shops on Etsy, which you can visit by clicking on the tabs above. 

TAFA was launched on January 31st, 2010, so we are about to celebrate our first birthday!  During the last year, we have grown to 230 members, have communities on Etsy, Facebook and Flickr and focus on improving our businesses and finding ways to expand our markets.  Our members are passionate about what they do and we believe that we will become THE destination for people who love textiles and fiber art. 

TAFA members have just been mapped on google, providing a great tool to see where we are physically.  Click on the pins and you will see a link to their member profiles along with an image of their work.  Zoom in to clustered areas so that you can see individual pins.  It's a lot of fun! 

One of the things that struck me was how remote some of our members are located, far from even a small town.  One more illustration of how the web has become a powerful tool to allow people to live where they want to and still remain connected to communities and markets. 

Explore the world through TAFA!
