Tatting Days and The Domes

15th Annual Tatting Days - that's me standing, teaching the tatted "feather" design

Another photo of the class in session

 Tatting Days at the Tatting Corner was fantastic! I recognized many faces from last year, although I'm terrible at remembering names. Great food and lots of fun both days that I was there. But, I had to leave early to get back to Milwaukee in time to set up at Jewelry At The Domes!

The Domes are always fun, and even though sales were very slow this year, I had many people show an interest in tatting! I handed out guild flyers, Craftsy cards, and was even approached by the owner of a local bead shop asking if I would teach tatting classes at her shop.

Wonderful artistic display, of course! And even if sales are slow, meeting people is always interesting, and can lead to other opportunities, such as teaching at the bead shop. I could write many stories about some of the amazing folks I have chatted with during our events.

I admire your enthusiasm for teaching, as I've never really wanted to do so. I mainly like to show the ways one can decorate with or 'wear' tatting, and that's why I have all my displays, which means I have to put everything back in the house afterwards, which can take a while! I also don't like having to build up the inventory for sales. It became too stressful!

I really enjoy your posts and sharing in your adventures, I am curious about the "Guild" you mention is it strictly a Tatting Guild and if so how do I find a Canadian one?

The guild I mentioned is the Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild, just an informal local tatting group. But you can find a Canadian tatting guild here: http://www.georgiaseitz.com/guilds/canada_list.htm
