TAFA Market

 TAFA (Textile and Fiber Artists) will be holding their first public event during the Quilt Show in Paducah, Kentucky. There will be a TAFA Market held April 27 to 30, 2011 and within the market will be an auction.

To participate, I have just shipped off this artwork for the auction. The title of this wall hanging is:
A CLASSICAL PALETTE and it is 32 by 40 inches.

This detail shows nature's hand coloring leaves for the coming season. The free-motion machine embroidered leaves and hand are appliqued to painted canvas.
This is one of my favorite art works so I hope it brings TAFA a few needed funds.

The whole market looks like a wonderful venue to visit and perhaps it will become an annual event. 


  1. This is a wonderful piece, BJ. Love the colors... and the stitching, of course.

  2. Thanks for posting about the market, BJ! Here is an update with a video on how it all went:

    We still have your piece and will try it out in round two of our fundraising efforts. I'll keep you posted!
