It is never to early to start saving for the next tat days! I am looking forward to teaching at the Spokane Shuttlebirds Workshop next year. It was a really good group of tatting sharing and tatting away this year.

The 19th Annual Shuttlebirds Workshop will be held April 17th and 18th of 2015.
The theme for the workshop is "A Touch of Victorian Charm".
It is also the theme for the contest. A Touch of Victorian Charm – Theme Contest by Shuttlebirds
Victorian Charm
A. Edgings
B. Collar and/or Cuffs
C. Jabot
D. Other Clothing Trim
E. Wrist Bag
F. Steampunk
(one or two additional categories may be added at a later date)
This contest is open to tatters everywhere. Attendance at the workshop is not required.

How Many Entries May I Submit?
There is a limit of two entries per category (12 entries at the moment - more, if additional categories are added).
What Can I Enter?

Entries may be from a published pattern, an adaptation of a pattern, or original design.
Entries from a published pattern must list the source of the pattern.
Adaptation entries must include a picture of the original pattern for comparison.

Creativity is definitely encouraged!

How Do I Enter?
Each entry must be submitted with a completed entry form (I will let you know when entry forms are available) and received by noon, Friday, April 17, 2015 for those attending the workshop.

Entries submitted by mail must be received by Friday, April 10, 2015. Please include a completed entry form for each entry, a return label address, and sufficient postage for returning your entry after workshop (if you plan to attend the workshop on Saturday, return postage is not necessary).

Please mail entries to:
Shuttlebirds Tatting Guild
Attn: Theme Contest
PO Box 2622
Spokane, WA 99220 USA

Or you can send your entry with someone you know that plans to be at the workshop before noon on Friday, April 17th.

How Is The Winner Determined? There will be one winner per category. Judging will be by popular vote of the workshop attendees, with one vote per person per category.

When Do I Find Out If I Won? Winners will be announced on Saturday afternoon, April 18, 2015, at the workshop. Winners will then be announced online within 48 hours of the end of workshop.

How Do I Get My Prize?
Winners attending the workshop will be awarded prizes after winners are announced.
Winners who submitted by mail will receive their prizes when their tatted entries are returned to them.

What Do I Win? That is a secret that will be revealed Friday, April 18, 2015.!

So what are you waiting for? Pick a category, grab your shuttle, and get tatting!
