TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Arts List had its first public event in Paducah, Kentucky, during the Quilt Show. Unfortunately, we had the biggest flood here since the Flood of 1937. Still, it was a great experience! The TAFA Market included vendor stalls and an exhibit of textiles along with a silent auction.


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!
