I became interested in tatting in Indiana after seeing tatting for sale in a senior center display case. I was lucky enough to find a tatting class teaching needle tatting (which I didn’t know existed). I was lucky enough that my daughter, Paige, was interested and I taught her a little bit. She got online and went crazy with making connections, one of which was Martha Ess who recommended Sue Miller, who then taught me to shuttle tat. I’ve been tatting since 2009. I have taught in the past, both individually and through our local arts center. I maintain a website, so we have somewhere to send people who want to learn to tat for information. I’m setting up a new class through our public library.
