About Us


We gather monthly to share ideas, food, fun and fellowship! 

The Palmetto Tatters Guild meets the 3rd Saturday of each month. All tatters, and those wishing to learn this form of lace making, are welcome to attend. Free tutorials are included at each meeting. We may also be working on projects for the the SC State Fair or our Tat Days.

Our 100+ members (hailing from the tri-state area) are excited to teach the lace they love! For more information about guild meetings, watch this site or write Melinda at

Palm Fronds: Is there a Palmetto Tatter local neighborhood contact or group near you? Look here at our list to see. If you have a group or would like to be the contact for your city, please write Donna to be added. Thanks!
