Be a Show Off with your tatting. Bring in your tatting to display! (No competition.) Folks may wish to handle the pieces so we will have white gloves handy. Please be considerate of other's tatting. (If you do not wish for folks to touch your work, you may not want to display it.) You will be responsible for your tatting.

Tat Off!, too! A tiny EASY snowflake! Practice now while you are thinking about it-empty those shuttles. Bring your tats (all colors) and we will gladly share them at the South Carolina State Fair.

Setting the Record-Guinness Book of World Records and Facebook
AT 6:00 to 6:30 (EST), we will all be tatting the same pattern at the same time-making snowflakes (https://www.palmettotatters.org/events/TatDays2011/TatOff2011.pdf). When I searched the Guinness Records, I found 0 entries for tatting. We will be the first! We may be small in number but the world will know tatting is NOT a lost art!
For those not attending Tat Days:
Tweet it. Blog it. Post it. Spread the word! Friday, September 23, 2011, Palmetto Tatters Guild on Facebook, 6 to 6:30 EST. Pattern at www.palmettotatters.org. Comment or Chat with us on Facebook. Let us know your location by country. How far can we reach?
