Defining the woman behind TAFA. An interview with Rachel Biel.

The world economy has changed dramatically in the last ten years and the United
States is no longer a stable economy that can support the arts like it used

to. As other emerging economies begin to have more disposable income,

they also begin to show an interest in the handmade lifestyle. I

figured if we all banded together and drove people to the same place, it would
be easier to be found. My mantra has been “Together we can do great things.”

I’ve started work on 3 quilts, don’t ask me why. I usually take em one at a time.The silk background is completed and the silk art painting finished. I’ve just begun the thread work, which is now where near finished as you see. I’ll post updated pictures along the wayI added lots of pearl to my paint colors as I mixed them. So to continue the sparkle, shine theme I’m using quite a lot of metallic threads for the thread work.
