Tatting Links and Classes

                            A Glossary of Standard Tatting Terms

The Guild recommends a list of standardized terms and symbols but the downloadable list is by no means all-inclusive. Always check a pattern for terms or symbols that a specific designer may use.

Learn to Tat

Palmetto Tatters Guild members are always ready to teach you to tat. If you are in the Lexington, SC area on the same day as a regular meeting, just stop in as we have thread, shuttles, and needles to borrow. If you want in-person lessons, use the contact form and someone will be in touch with you shortly.

You may also subscribe to The Online Tatting Class on YouTube. There are many videos available to view. Live classes are available throughout the year but the replays are available any time. Register for classes (there is no charge) to be notified of upcoming events and classes via email.

Interesting Sites that Feature Tatting

With the advent of Social Media, there are many sites where tatting is featured. Two specific sites that have large tatting discussion forums along with pattern indices, pictures, and helpful discussions are Craftree (started out as eTatters on Yahoo Groups) and Ravelry. Other Social Media sites that feature tatting in various groups include Facebook  (where there are more than 60), MeWe, and Parler as examples. There are other sites in use such as Instagram and Twitter. Many tatters have found that they can use Blogspot or WordPress without some of the negative aspects on Facebook. Below you will find links to various websites or blogs used by some of the teachers who have been at previous PTG Tat Days. We hope you will enjoy the travels that these links will take you!
