Thank you Bonnie for collecting and glueing ALL those butterflies and critters!

Here is a special Thank You Note to all!

Remember, Palmetto Tatters Guild "Dues" are at least one butterfly for the State Fair.

We need volunteers to setup or take down, demonstrators of shuttle and/or needle tatting, friendly smiles to give out butterflies and critters, and teachers - lots of teachers!
