Artizan Made is TAFA’s sister site, set up as a collective to promote handmade shops on Etsy and self hosted sites.

This was our first video, made in 2014, introducing some of our Artizan Made shops. They hyperlinked names below have profiles here on TAFA:

Ariane Mariane (felt)
Ceci Capen Clay Studio
Cindy Grisdela Art Quilts
Dsenyo (fair trade)
Cheryl Wolff Ceramics
Hammock Boutique (fair trade)
Kasia Urban Rybska (needlepoint)
LoomOnTheLake (weaving)
Morgen Bardati (botanical dyeing, printing, sewing)
Nelsonwood (turned wood)

We are a collective of handmade shops from around the world. Most have shops on Etsy, but some are stand alone sites. We hope that you will visit us and explore all of our talented people and support handmade!


I've been working with the arts and craft world in many capacities since 1988. Handmade textiles have been my core focus since launching TAFA in 2010.

My hope is to contribute to the economic development potential the arts bring to the world, along with the intrinsic beauty shown in the work. May the world become a friendlier place for artists and nature!

Arrived in Kentucky after a childhood in Brazil, college in Minnesota and 20 years in Chicago. It's been a ride!
