Pin these TAFA Members!
This is TAFA's SAFE BOARD. With all the controversy over Pinterest's copyright policies, we have had many discussions over who to pin and who not to pin. TAFA: The Textile and Fiber Art List seeks to honor these requests. This board lists the members who want to be pinned. The images are linked to their member profiles and from there, you can go to their sites and pin away! Please do NOT pin any TAFA members who are not on this board. Visit our site at www.tafalist.com.
Learning to spin led me to a needle felting class at the Harveyville Project. My inner artist woke up. I can "see" with my hands in ways I cannot see with my eyes. That's the best way to explain it. Now my sketchbook is for character designs for felted work or simple illustrations. www.tafalist.com/... Pencil and Sheep
