Ad Sponsor Spotlight

TAFA does not have yearly membership renewals, so our financial support depends heavily on the generosity of our sponsors. We are so grateful for those who have kept us going in the past and look forward to new partnerships in the future.

We have two pricing tiers, for members and non-members:

Non-Members

Gold Sponsor Year

$1,000
per year
  • Two free months!
Non-Members

Gold Sponsor Month

$100
per month
  • PayPal subscription available.
 

Members Year

$250
per year
  • Two free months!
 

Members Month

$25
per month
  • PayPal subscription available

Our Sponsors really do keep TAFA tickin’!

Both levels have a great deal of visibility on the site with our Sponsor Spotlights. The Gold Sponsors (non-members) get an extra banner on the home page.

The Sponsor Spotlight is a widget that can be placed on any page or post, using tags as a way of sorting by focus. For example, if we do a post in our blog about quilts, we can insert the Sponsor Spotlights that are quilting related at the bottom of the post. Sponsor Spotlights are actual pages that can have whatever content the sponsor would like to have, a perfect place for a monthly newsletter.

  • Gold Sponsor Banners: 1200 x 300 pixels (wide x high) They show up at the bottom of the Home Page.
  • Sponsor Spotlights: A widget that opens up to a page. Any content the sponsor wants can be added there. This can be updated once a month.
  • Facebook Shares: We share our sponsor news on our Facebook Page regularly.

 

Gold Sponsors:

Although we welcome support from any business or organization that shares our sensitivities to the handmade community, the textile and fiber arts industries, and towards an eco lifestyle, our expected support comes from suppliers of the tools and materials used in our products: quilt and yarn shops, fabric distributors, batting manufacturers, thread companies, sewing machine companies and so on. We ARE your target market!
