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 almost 39 years, Doug and I have 3 children (2 sons and a special needs daughter), two granddaughters, and one grandson. Besides tatting, I enjoy quilting, sewing, and machine embroidery. I have a degree in Data Processing, and in my spare time, I am a stay-at-home Mom. I have attended 16 Tat Days events, and I love being here and rubbing shoulders with such wonderfully talented and friendly people.
