TAFA MARKET... April 27 - 30, 2011 .....THIS weekend!
Spring Quilt Market Salt Lake City... May 13 - 15, 2011
Greetings friends and fiber lovers all,
If you have not yet checked it out, it's time you did! "The TAFA List
" is the Textile and Fiber Arts List
. It is the brainchild of Rachel Biel, a woman immersed in textiles of all kinds who brings community together through them. She has an energetic, entrepreneurial spirit, and lives in Paducah, KY. At last count, she has gathered the profiles and links to well over 200 fiber related businesses from around the world. The list that she has created is quite amazing and she's done it all on Blogspot. Of course this format has its limitations and she and others in TAFA would like to see it moved into a website format where navigation is smoother and there would be more ways to grow.
To create this new website a fundraising effort has begun and the big event is coming right up! Rachel has located a cool building in Paducah to launch a TAFA Market
. TAFA Market will host a Member Show, fiber vendors will bring their wares, and many of us have donated to the TAFA Silent Auction
. Check it out! I'm a TAFA member and I sent a big box of my work down there. Anybody in Paducah this coming week for the other shows and festivities will want to come by and take part in this new eclectic fiber arena. Say hey to Rachel from me!
Spring Quilt Market Salt Lake City
In about 2 1/2 weeks, from May 13 - 15, you can find me and my work at the Spring Quilt Market
. This is a trade show and is not open to the general public. But If you are going to be there- let me tell you this- since I decided to do this show just recently, I'm wayyyyyy in the back! It's the center of the universe, BOOTH 847. Meet you there!
