Gathering Threads in London, ON
We’d like to thank all of you who stopped by our display at Gathering Threads in London May 13 and 14. Over the 2 days, Carlene, Deana, Ellan, Lorraine, Margaret, Nancy, Robert, Sylvia and Susan took turns demonstrating both shuttle and needle tatting, and handed out many membership hearts to inspire new tatters. It was encouraging to see how quickly people learned to “flip” the knot. People shared many wonderful memories about tatted treasures created by ancestors. For a great story about tackling that BIG project go to: http://fringetatters.ca/2011/05/"
Cambridge Ontario is located near Toronto, Canada. That means there is easy access for tatters in New England, states east of Chicago and north of the Mason-Dixon line. And for tatters across the south, the eastern seaboard and even up to the Great lakes, plan a trip to the Palmetto Tat Days 2011, September 23-24, Toccoa, GA, "Tatting in a Winter Wonderland".
Here's the latest article from the Tatting site at BellaOnline.com.

Women Tatters of the pre-Civil War era in the USA were considered "legally dead!" It is a wonder that any tatting or tatting patterns survived.
