(1) Butterfly Book: Joy reported the book is progressing and should
be complete before 6/20/02.
Sheron & Sharren are assisting with the layout of the pages. Joy asked
for more simple butterfly patterns with variations by early June to include
in the book. Please email to Sheron
or Sharren. The name of the
book is Butterflies Migrating. Click here to see the cover
and get excited with us! Notice will also be made on the Tat Chat &

(2) SC State Fair (October 4, 2002) Tatting Demonstration & Display
for Palmetto Tatters:
Sheron reported we now have almost 1,000 butterflies for the fair and
we need 2,000 more. So keep those butterflies flying in!! Need to know
where to land the butterflies? Write Sheron.
Sheron also made a sample information card that will be used as a calling
card to all the fair visitors.
All Palmetto tatters are also encouraged to enter their tatting in the
(3) Palmetto Tatters 1st Annual Tat Day (April 5, 2003):
Joy opened discussion on possible locations for the event. Palmetto tatters
have been offered to hold the event at the McKissick Museum in downtown
Columbia and a show of hands was unanimous to pursue the Museum as the
site of choice. Joy announced that a professionally judged tatting competition
will be held that day with Diana Stevens of Washington state judging for
us. Teresa held a discussion on the various needs to be worked on by
committee: activities, classes, vendors, raffle, door prizes, lunch, motel
arrangements. She also reminded that this info must be on this website
before 7/1/02. A call was made for committee members and The 2003 Tat
Day Committee was formed with Dawn, Donna, Joy, Judy and Sharren. (Picture)
Of course, the success of the event will depend on the efforts of everyone
as we go forward.
The Laksami 3-yard Challenge
Joy stated this challenge is to be used to encourage tatters to improve
their proficiency by repeating a pattern for 3 yards. This can be edging,
doilies, or mat-shaped to measure 3 yards of tatting. There will be different
levels of difficulty to allow for progression. Each level of progression
will be rewarded with a "striver" for recognition. This challenge
is open to all tatters in & outside of Palmetto Tatters group. More
info to follow soon.
June program: The group will begin to work on items needed for
the State Fair learning project kits.·
July program: Joy will demonstrate mounting tatting on a foam board
Also, we request that all members remember Joy and her family, and Drucie
and her husband.
