TAFA- Textile and Fiber Artists List is my go-to site for artisan made fiber art. In fact this should be the go-to site for any fiber artist who sells, shows or just wants to be part of a fantastic fiber community. Rachel Biel, the creative and enthusiastic mind behind the list is instrumental in helping me design and launch the new Color Creek Fiber Art website. TAFA is an amazing resource for information, community, discussion and assistance in on-line presence for those of us dedicated to promoting the fiber arts.
