|"Teacup Bulldog" by The Creative Chick|
TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Arts List grew out of a group that I had formed on Ning, a platform that hosts independent groups who organize themselves around a theme. I had been looking for a community that was interested in the international side of fiber arts and textiles and when I couldn't find it, I started a group called "Fiber Focus" on Ning. Through that and as I kept learning about social media, I kept bumping into The Creative Chick (Susan Sorrell). She joined my group and I joined hers, Fiber Arts/Mixed Media. Once I launched TAFA, I realized that I would not be able to lead Fiber Focus anymore, so I closed it down. And, I have also not had the time to get involved on Fiber Arts/Mixed Media, also known as FAMM.
BUT, Susan is a diva of knowledge and if you are looking to learn more about how to network, learn, teach, then you need to connect with Susan and FAMM. I am serious... whenever I go check out a site that is art or social media related, there she is, burning the paths ahead of me. I know a lot and she knows way more!

Learn and Teach
Susan teaches several different workshops that zoom in on creativity, embroidery techniques, color and other topics. See a list of her classes here. She has also encouraged FAMM members to teach and Spring classes have just been announced. If you are interested in also teaching and have never taught an online class, Susan suggests taking a class from someone else first so that you understand the process.
