3 New Tatters
Well today was the big day. It was the first class for my three new tatting students. I present each student with a written history of tatting and a sheet of short forms that are used in patterns. After giving them a brief oral history on tatting and a discussion on types of shuttles and thread we made our way to the dreaded double stitch. I always love the reaction from students when they finally get the flip and realize what it is. It always gives them such a feeling of accomplishment. All three students succeeded and were sent home to practice making chains until next week. It is going to be a lot of fun teaching this group.
