Once you have bought an item from TAA you know immediately that you have an authentic handicraft article, in a modern form. A small sample from the original and modern articles that are made by the handicraft women of each TAA department: embroidered tablecloths and tea cosies, accessories for sports like bridge and golf, as well as baby- and toddler gifts and gifts for home and garden.

Shops and Fairs

TAA shops and branches are located throughout The Netherlands. Our fine handicraft products are also sold at fairs, organised by TAA branches. You are most welcome to come along! For dates and locations check the agenda. Any questions on a TAA article? Send your question by e-mail to taa@tesselschade-arbeidadelt.nl, stating your name and address and the branch in your area will get in touch with you.

Handicraft Techniques

In 1999 the Articles of Association of TAA were amended to the effect that handicraft techniques should be preserved. Persian reverse appliqué, Richelieu cut-work and white-on-white embroidery are examples of techniques which once formed part of the art of handicraft and which were also taught on an academic level. As a first result of this a DVD has been compiled giving basic information on more than 30 techniques (more information).
