Texas Artists on Artfire


This is an open invitation for all Texas artists who are on Artfire to join Texas Artfire, an online meeting place for Texas artisans with shops on Artfire.

Heather Gaff Mewis of Missouri City, Texas started this Ning group and says,

"I would like to help network other Artfire Texans and support other artisans in the improvement of their skills and shops.
I welcome all suggestions regarding improvement and growth of Texas Artfire. We're a small community compared to others on Artfire but we're big in spirit since everything is bigger in Texas! There has already been a suggestion from one member regarding possible 'eco' or 'green' art and I think that is an interesting direction. I also would love to see members that live near each other possibly met and help each other network locally. I'm working on a list of Texas craft fairs for '09 so if you know of any small or large fairs please pass on the info and I will add it to my list for our use."

Helping to promote each other and networking locally is a great idea and would be beneficial to all of us. I really believe shopping local will become an even bigger deal over the next few years as folks will want affordable, quality handmade items that will last instead massed produced from overseas.

It is by invitation so leave your email info or contact me directly at: rrsupply@gmail.com. I will send you an invite.

It is not hard and doesn't take but a couple of minutes to join.

I have already met some wonderful folks around Texas and am looking forward to meeting lots Texas Artisans!
