Weekend Schedule

Emptying shuttles? Make butterflies, animals, spiders, owls, flowers, etc., and bring to Tat Days for our SC State Fair BIG sharing of tatting bits in October. No string attached or long strings for necklaces are both much appreciated.


NOTE: Costs are going up $5 for registration, 1.25 individual meals and $10 on double occupancy rooms. Commuter Fee will be $27 per day. Most choose to stay on campus and the commuter fee is included in their room costs. If an individual chooses to stay off-campus, and that is perfectly fine, then the Center charges us $26.38 + tax per commuter per day. We are not able to absorb this cost so we must pass it on. Thank you for understanding.




You can post your photos from our Tat Days on our Facebook page. Just look for the Palmetto Tatters Guild page. And we welcome any tatted related posts there, too. Thanks!



What is Tat Days? One tatter writes: "I am so excited I can hardly STAND it! ;-) You'd think I was 5 years old and waiting for Christmas, my birthday, and a trip to the circus, all rolled into one. ;-)"
Tat Days is a time for all level tatters (tried it a little to advanced) to come together and tat ("art of making lace") for 48 hours. Well maybe only 45; we do sleep a little! There will be a variety of 1.5 to 3 hour classes to select from with various items being created and new techniques being learned. There will be lots of time to chat and learn from other tatters. Show 'N Tell will be exciting as folks bring out works of art they have created. And of course fun, games, and good food. Meet back up with old friends and make new ones. Find out you no longer need to keep tatting by yourself in your closet because there are tatters all across the globe. Tatting started out as an edging on sheets and clothing. It is much, much more than that now. As you scroll down this page and browse our site, you will see many examples of tatted lace. Or take a look at our About Us page. Enjoy!
