About 20 years ago, I saw a “Learn to Tat” class at a local (70 miles away) yarn shop. I had always wanted to learn to tat, but did I want to do all that driving. My sweet husband told me if I wanted to learn, I should go, drive down early, do shoe shopping, have dinner, and take the class. I drove, attended, and learned to make rings, chains, picots, and joins. A few years later, I discovered the on-line tatting community and learned there is a lot more to tatting than the basics things from that first class. In 2009 I attended my first Palmetto Tat Days. I have done test tatting and teaching assisting at Palmetto Tat Days. I am still learning new things in tatting. In 2019, I ventured into teaching tatting; it has a been a great learning experience and I hope to share my skills with others.
