(October 10-21)


We need volunteers to work our booth on Saturday, October 13th. There are many tasks so we are sure we can find one or more that you would LOVE to do! We need folks to do setup, demo tatting, share our beauties with fair attendees, teach tatting, and take down. Come for all day or 2 hour shifts. Write Pam and Donna T. if you will be able to share some of your precious time and LOVE of TATTING.
Thank you!


THANK YOU for all of the tatting pieces we have received! What a VERY GENEROUS International Tatting Community!
