I started tatting about 25 years ago mostly as a self-taught tatter. Since then, I’ve enjoyed many learning experiences. I once took a class where I was the only student. My Tat Days instructors have helped me tremendously and tatting is now my official favorite pastime. I have been honored and have enjoyed the opportunity to teach at Tat Days for the last several years. I also had the wonderful opportunity to teach at the Finger Lakes Tatting Conference and Tatting Corners Tat Days twice. Married for over 30 years, Doug and I have 3 children, two granddaughters, and one grandson. Besides tatting I enjoy quilting, sewing, and machine embroidery. I have a degree in Data Processing, substitute teach for special education classes, and in my spare time I am a stay-at-home Mom. I have attended 15 Tat Days events, and love being here and rubbing shoulders with such wonderfully talented and friendly people. Really missed being at Tat Days last year, COVID kept me from coming, but I am completely recovered and excited to be back!
