Artfire Store

We just joined up to Art Fire. It looks like a tremendous site for selling artisan work and artisan supplies. Ebay seems like a big flea market to me. Etsy is filled with low priced, glue gun craft work with a few gems sprinkled in to keep you looking. Art Fire is for artisans with quality workmanship and quality materials.

Its a new venue that I'm excited about. Joybilee Farm is a charter artisan member. There's over 5,000 members now and the site just started out in November 2008.

I listed our naturally dyed wool roving in the store today. I haven't listed these naturally dyed rovings on the Joybilee Farm website as they tend to sell out as soon as I pull them out of the dye vat in the summer.

I also listed one of Sarah's woad dyed, cut devore satin shawls -- in a bamboo pattern. Shawl is 22" x 72", including rayon fringe. And is dyed with Sarah's sustainably grown woad indigo. Proceeds from the sale of these shawls helps Sarah to take her project to the National Science Fair each year, as well as allowing her to buy equipment for the processing and testing of the purity of her dried woad indigo.
