Let's Talk Tatting

source
Sue O. is going to demonstrate needle tatting at the August guild meeting. She is bringing extra tatting needles so members can try the technique. Please bring a size 0, 1, or 2 crochet hook, if you have one.

The Twist Collective provides a bit of information on the three types of tatting: needle, shuttle, and cro-tatting.

Plan to attend the Guild meeting this Saturday, August 19, 2017 at the REACH foundation in Riverton, to try needle tatting.
