Next Meeting:

May 23

10 am to 2 pm

Needle Tatting will be presented by Loretta. 
    A quick refresher of the basics will start off this lesson.  Then we will concentrate on more advanced techniques like final joins of a round so they are not twisted, "right side" tatting with chains and joins being "perfect" looking, split ring and split chain tatting, hiding the tails, and adding beads. 
    Come prepared with a #5 needle and #10 or #20 thread, or a #7 needle and #30 or #40 thread.
    A Bit About Needle Tatting Books & DVD
    I have Learn Needle Tatting  Step-by-Step by Barbara Foster.  It's a good basic book that most will want in their library.
    Needle Tatting With Style Book 1, a lesson in split ring tatting and a bunch of patterns, hardly a must have since any tatting pattern or pattern book will work for needle tatting.
    Needle Tatting Techniques & More, edited by Barbara Foster.  Lots of wonderful advanced techniques shown and desribed very well.  This is also a good book to have in your library if you wish to really do needle tatting.
    The Needle Tatting DVD by Gerogia Seitz in our LPS library is excellent.  Get on the list to check it out!  It is worth your time.
