REQUESTS FOR TATTING

SMILE South Carolina State Fair in October: Each year we collect butterflies and other small tatted items to share with the thousands of fair goers. They love animals and insects: fish, giraffes, owls, spiders, etc.!

SMILE Items to sell at craft fairs: We love to share our tatting and make more folks aware of this wonderful art form and craft shows are one way we do this. It also brings in a little cash to help support our teaching efforts throughout the year. Craft show goers are looking for unique items and we can provide just that. Items like, but not limited to, jewelry, bookmarks, decorative things, etc. School colors of garnet and black for Univ. of SC and orange and/or purple for Clemson sell well, too.

THANK YOU! THANK YOU for your generosity!
