Welcome to TAFA’s Member Forum and Market!

TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List is a membership organization of handmade textile and fiber art businesses on the web.  The Forum is our member gathering place where we can share business tips, seek help, update each other on our projects and engage in community. Although our main focus is on the business end of things, we also believe that our individual goals and interests have a greater chance of success if they are supported by a larger group. The Market showcases products from participating Member Shops. You will see lots of eye candy there, a testament to the beauty of handmade works! See our sidebar for Quick Links to TAFA and to the Forum.

Together we can do great things!

  2. D. Ellis Originals

  3. Decorating with Textiles: Living with Cindy Grisdela’s Contemporary Quilts

      I’m a fiber artist specializing in abstract contemporary quilts for the wall. I’m particularly interested in color and the way colors interact with each other to enhance our experience of the world.
