Building a Tatting Library - Karey Solomon


Congratulations to Karey Solomon on 20 years of "Tatting Times"

Despite early frustration and setbacks, Karey Solomon learned to tat in 1972. As many tatters do, she carried her shuttles with her everywhere sharing tatting as she went. In 1992 she " began a quarterly tatting newsletter, dubbed "Tatting Times" because time for tatting was very cherished in those hectic years, and "Tatting Times" sounded a little like the "New York Times" - which was not the newspaper she was working at..." as freelance writer and editor.

During the past 20 years both tatting and Tatting Times evolved. Karey has featured in her petite booklet many talented tatters, fascinating patterns using both vintage and modern tatting techniques, new products and threads and the occasional poem and recipe. With 5-6 new patterns in each issue and book reviews, "Tatting Times" became an invaluable resource for tatters over the years.

Karey also founded and hosts the Finger Lakes Tatting Guild annual seminars larger venue a few miles from Hector, NY, the wine-producing region of the Finger Lakes area. Held every spring, the event is an international gathering of tatters, instructors, new patterns, vendors, great food - and a whole lot of fun, a sort of family reunion where everyone's invited to be part of the family. For more information about "Tatting Times" quarterly or the Tatting Seminars in the Finger Lakes, contact Karey at threads@empacc.net.
