Necklace center, and art fair approaching


The center part of the necklace - not too bad. But, it could use more stability, so for next time I will add more joining picots, and make other adjustments. Seeing possibilities brings out more ideas. Now, the sides - the easy part, yeah!
The big news - I'm going to be a vendor in an art fair! Hopefully the poster will get bigger if you click on it. I will be bringing the contents of my etsy shop and my books, and I will demonstrate tatting! The plan is to have a sign-up sheet for people to put their contact info on if they are interested in tatting classes.

Great work on the necklace Marilee. Good luck at the craft show and don't be surprised if you get a lot of people interested in learning how to tat. I have seen an increase in people who are interested in learning lately.

Thanks so much for the encouragement, tattingchic. You are right, this art fair is an amazing opportunity - and it's a juried art fair, so there is a certain degree of prestige in being permitted to exhibit at it.

Clyde, I do hope some people will be interested in learning to tat. I hope that by demonstrating at this art fair, people will realize that tatting is a very interesting craft to learn, and is definitely alive and well!
