Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild, June meeting highlights



 Good times! Sue Anna and Barbara G. were able to join us this time, too. We heard about their experiences at the Lafayette Lacemakers "Lace Day" on Saturday, and got to see some pattern books and other goodies they had bought while there.

We tatted, chatted, and admired new patterns and latest creations.The beginners worked on mastering the "flip" of the double stitch with help and encouragement from the rest of us.

Sue Anna brought tatting in size 3 and size 20. The size of the thread sure makes a difference!


A fun, relaxing time, tatting and visiting with friends, and making new friends!
 
Sure is convenient having the meeting in the Mayfair Mall food court, where there's plenty of food available.

Looks like you had a great time! Wish I could have made it there and to Lace Day. Maybe next time...

With each new post I am drawn more and more to wanting to attend. In spite of the long distance between us! You have a great group and it looks as though it can only grow in fun and fellowship.

One additional comment...the double glasses in your final photo intrigue me. If *I* wore double specs would I be able to see my stitches in size 80 thread?

Thanks. That's my friend Ana wearing the double glasses. She has her regular prescription glasses, then for close work she puts on a pair of reading glasses from the drugstore on over the other pair. She says it works like a charm!

Wow... wish I lived close enough to participate -- looks like lots of fun. I wonder if there's anything like that in FL where I live...
