THANK YOU for all of your participation at our Tat Days! We could not do it without you.

THANK YOU for your generosity in so many ways:
*Donations of tatted items to share with our South Carolina State Fair Goers. We have so many that look and watch for us each year so they can get their next tatted piece. They collect them year to year, especially the faithful and wonderful fair workers.
*Donations to our Scholarship Fund! WOW! We have enough to award almost 7 full scholarships next time. That is incredible!
*Donations of your time to share your love of tatting with each one of us that was at Tat Days and now to share it in your community.

TIAS: You will want two shuttles wound continuously.  Use the thread size with which you are most comfy tatting.  And you'll want a bead that is compatible with your thread size.

You will also need to bring your patience and your lovely sense of humor! 

See you really, really soon!
Erin in Tenn.

Sept 5 Vending: The new Freecia thread (replacement for Opera) will be in vending! http://www.hhtatting.com/results_threads.cfm?SubCategory=60
Sept 4

Clothes and Weather Outlook: Shorts, khakis and jeans are fine. Modest clothing, please. It is a Baptist Convention facility. Some will bring something "nice" but not too fancy to wear to the Banquet Friday night. The classrooms may be warm, comfortable or cool, depending on each individual so you might want to have a light sweater packed just incase you need it.

Looks like it will be cool in the mornings walking to breakfast, average 64. High will average 84. Partly Cloudy most days, 20% chance of rain. 30% change of showers on Sunday.

Aug 29 White Oak Campus Tour Updated. Take Note: Registration will be downstairs in the Classroom building. You can drive around to the back of the Classroom Building, driving along in front of the motels, to go straight into Registration.
