New Tatters Coming

I can't believe that I am teaching a tatting class at my church. The class began on Thursday, July 16, with three students. After a three hour class, all three went home with one completed ring. Tonight, I had two to return to the class for the second week. One had completed a very long strip of rings--some with and without picots. Tonight, she learned to do chains along with rings, and joining rings together to make a circular motif. She is doing very well. Her homework is to tat an edging for a hankerchief to bring next week.

The other student that returned, went out of town last weekend and did not pick up her shuttle again until Tuesday. She got frustrated and put it down until returning to class. She left class tonight with some rings. Her homework is to tat every day--practice--practice--practice. She is to return next week with yards and yards of rings.

The third student left on a business trip with her husband this morning. She called me this week and said that she had been practicing her stitches and making a few rings. She is to bring a strip of rings to class next week.

This is the first time that I have taught a tatting class and it is so much fun. It is very rewarding when you see them light up as they catch onto the flip. I will let you know how they are doing next week. I will try to post a picture of their homework.

Congratulations. I'm sure in a matter of weeks you'll have more than 20 students!
