Hello Tatters,
Oct. 27 lesson is posted and it is jammed packed with loads of tatting fun!

From the Nellie Hall Youngburg project we have another edging, a simple one, one shuttle but it has inspired the model tatter to create a bookmark pattern from it! There is so much inspiration and creativity still to be found in these vintage patterns.

And for the 52 earrings project we have 5 more designs. Of the 5, one is not beaded but 4 have lovely beads added. And we will review how to add a bead to the center of a ring, the josephine ring/knot, and placing beads on the ring and on the core thread. And I sure hope Jane can join us for the Winsome Earring as the beading directions got me flustered and I dropped my beads. I’ll need help figuring that one out!

Classes are off to a great start. Beginner class tomorrow.

See you in class!

Classes are under way!

It’s always exciting to begin new classes! Well, the classes we post for have been around for quite awhile. The Monday class, happening today in a few hours, will have been in existance for 15 years come November! Whew! That’s a lot of DS!! For perspective, here’s one of the first group of patterns they looked at:

http://www.georgiaseitz.com/classes2/float/french.html

The Thursday class currently uses pages that were set up by volunteers several years ago. Cynthia and her many helpers are our volunteer teachers. They host the beginning tatting lessons which are taught in a repeating series of three lessons:

Lesson 1 – the first week of the month

Lesson 2 – the second week

Lesson 3 – the third week

If there are more Thursdays in the month, those times are review or special projects as requested by the students.

All are welcome to join, mentor and volunteer.

Registering information is found on the About page listed in the menu above.

See you in class!

We look at an antique pattern this week.  http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2014/2014index.html

Both Nellie Hall Youngburg patterns are exercises in using the mock picot to climb out from the center of a motif without cutting the thread. Both patterns have beaded versions also.

Thank you to Dagmar and Carol for their work in tatting samples and rewriting the pattern.

See you in class!

Calling all puzzler tatters-

Here’s is a change of pace for us. Dagmar Pezzuto has tatted a flower that uses not only tatting but also hairpin lace and cluny leaves. I can’t figure out how she did it! So I am counting on you to come to class and help me figure it out!

See you in class!

Homework submitted 9-24

After 2 days of lively classes, we have homework coming in. As always, we try to get names correct, designers acknowledged, and patterns matched up. That can take me a bit, so patience is appreciated. Tatters are known for being generous, so there will be lots to share this year in class!

First up is pictures from Carol Best of her display at the fair this summer. A red and white ribbon! Well done!
