Muskaan has been combining lots of ideas lately. She sends us her adaptation of the 6 Pointed Motif featured in a Bellaonline post by Georgia:

And a wonderful way to tat up a sea shell:

She used blue thread to represent water, a pearl captured in the center, and curled rings around the shell representing seaweed. A wonderful way to brighten our Winter.

If you know of tatting events to be held in 2017, please send me a link to the submission address. I am currently updating my small list and will post what I have next week.

See you in class!

Class is on!

Welcome Back to the Online Tatting Class, Jan. 16, 2017
Join us Monday for a warm welcome and tat chat. Let’s talk about what techniques we would like to concentrate on this year, our 17th year online. And please bring suggestions for improving the lessons or the presentations. And remember, new designers and volunteers are always welcome, too.
Have you designed a pattern or rewritten a vintage one? Please share.
Did you get any new gadgets for the holidays, tatting tools, shuttles, new threads? Or have you seen the wonderful new books coming from Japan? The last one I got has anime in it!!
Have you read the list of upcoming tat days in 2017??
Here’s what the new index page looks like so far: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/2017/2017index.html
The first glance at the 2017 page will show you that I  need help filling in the blanks. A New Year, a New Tat Chat.
See you in class!

Class reminder

Hello tatters!

Thank you to all who shared photos of their tatting in the past! I look forward to a great year.

Just a friendly reminder that class is on break one more week. A great chance to finish some of those projects that need just a little more done to complete. Also a great chance to check out what others are posting.

If you something to post here, please use the gmail address given in class or on the About page. I’ll be posting Monday, Wednesday, and Friday what I receive by 9 AM Pacific Time. It’s always fun to see what others have created. If you can share any information about how you found the pattern or thread, what tool or technique you used, or your plans for the tatted piece(s), that makes the post even more fun!

See you in class!

Tatters are a creative lot. New patterns and uses are being thought up and put into thread each day! Even if we’re not meeting in the classroom, the innovation hasn’t slowed down. Muskaan has taken 2 patterns we’ve chatted about and made them her own:

Ice Drops by Diane (lace lovin' librarian) Cademartori

Ice Drops by Diane (lace lovin’ librarian) Cademartori

She did not have the requisite gems, so she adapted the lovely pattern using a magnifying lens in one and mirrors glued back to back in the other.

3D Christmas Tree by Grace OB Tan

For these sweet decorations, she tested first without any beads and then with beads as Grace originally wrote the pattern. Wise tatter! She decided to add some 3D effect to her trunk. Those delicate beads are red sand beads.

While class is on recess, we can catch up on those UFO’s. Send in pictures for posting as I will be checking the gmail box. Keep the creativity flowing!

Enjoy the break, see you in class!

It took a few days for the computer to get moved and up and running. My apologies for not being more prompt. I was very excited to see this wonderful door decoration drop into the inbox:

 

Gemengde Kerstkrans by Carolien C.

Gemengde Kerstkrans by Carolien C.

Welcome Carolien to our corner of tatland. She wrote that it is needle tatted in cotton Annel Max-Annel in dark green, mixed green and red. The used red sand beads for embellishments.

Pam Freck has completed a troll. I wonder if this little guy will be knocking on Carolien’s door.

Dagmar Pezzuto shares her clever way to hang a dishcloth or towel. Great practise for split rings, cluny, and covering a ring. Any color combination can be used!
