  • "I wish I could relate to fellow fiber artisans what I have witnessed since joining TAFA. This site, this concept, this group was born from the mind of one extraordinary visionary and has grown to become so much more under her watchful eye. I have been amended, improved, astounded and amazed by the energy and knowledge embodied in TAFA.

    There is NO other place online that will work harder to help expand your reach, enhance your online impact or improve your understanding of what to do and how to do it to improve your fiber-related business. I am proud to be a member AND a sponsor for TAFA and will continue long after other of my memberships is gone!"  Visit Cat's Shop
