VOLUNTEERS for 2010

THANK YOU to ALL of the volunteers that worked the booth! You guys are AWESOME!

BUTTERFLIES

WOW! Each year, we are AMAZED at the GENEROSITY and CREATIVITY of the International Tatting Community!

We are in need of small tatted items to share with the attendees at the fair again this year. Can you help? We have folks come by our booth every year just to get their tatted piece. They are treasured by all.

Register your pieces online during July and August. There is no fee to register if you do it during August. Go to the SC State Fair page. Tatting is under Home & Craft, Fancy Work, Miscellaneous. See possible categories below. We will gladly help you register your pieces at the August meeting. Note: You no longer must enter your Social Security Number to enter.

Delivery of Fancy Work is usually the first week in October on a Tuesday and Wednesday, 7:30 AM - 6 PM. Don't forget your entry cards. A Palmetto Tatter will gladly deliver your handiwork if you get them your pieces before the 1st along with your entry cards that the State Fair will mail to you after you register online. (Bring the tatting and tickets to the Aug. or Sept. meetings.)

Date of Judging (Closed to public): A Friday.

Pickup: Monday after Fair closes, Monday and Tuesday, from 8:00 AM - 6:00 PM. (At your request, a Palmetto Tatter can pickup your pieces, provided they have the pickup tags, and will return your pieces at the November meeting unless you need them before then.)

  • May enter one (1) article per class (numbered category)
  • No article having previously been shown at the Fair and having received a premium may be entered.
  • All work must have been done by the exhibitor and within the last three (3) years.
  • A person is considered a professional if he/she has earned more than $1,000 during a calendar year either by selling their items, teaching the subject, doing extended exhibiting, or involving themselves in other professionally related activities in a capacity that would give the entrant unfair advantage over a hobbyist. Unless otherwise designated as a Professional section, all classes should be entered by Amateurs.
  • Complete rules are on the State Fair page.

From all of the tatting entries, there will be additional judging done by a Palmetto Tatters Guild judge and a special award will be given for Best Double Stitches & Picots, Most Innovative Tatted Design, Judges' Recognition Award, and Youth Award.
