VOLUNTEERS

We can always use volunteers at our SC State Fair to work our booth. We are there ALL day, 9 to 9. We work in 2 hour shifts. We mostly demo tatting, sharing our love for the art. We also share the little pieces of tatting that have been so graciously donated. And we may even do a little teaching of tatting between 1 and 3. To volunteer, please write Donna at statefair@palmettotatters.org.


Tatted Pieces to Share

BUTTERFLIES and other BEAUTIES

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.

Fish, and Owls (as a necklace), and Spiders (as a necklace) are very popular.
