Next meeting:Sunday, June 19, 2016, 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm
Location: 1000 28th Avenue, Tuscaloosa

Bring any project that you would like to work on, or just come and chat.
Tatting instruction will also continue, for those who are interested.
smooth cotton thread, such as crochet cotton, size 10
If you don't have these
supplies, we will have some that you can use. Size 10 is just a
suggestion for thread, as a moderately thick thread is easier for
beginners to work with. Any color will do, but keep in mind that
lighter colors make it easier to see your stitches.
Reminder: Please return any supplies you borrowed from the Temari workshop, particularly needles and needle threaders. Thanks!
Last meeting:Sunday, June 5, 2016

Registration is now open for the 14th Annual Tat Days 2016, hosted by the Palmetto Tatter's Guild. It will take place September 9-10 in Toccoa, Georgia -- two full days of tatting classes and events!
I found an amazing story about a woman who made a 12ft x 6ft depiction
of "The Last Supper" in tatting. Her name was Mrs. Louise Concistre
(1884-1956), and she lived in Queens, New York. You can see a picture
of the tatting here (colorized, I believe), and read more about it here and here.
Schedule for 2016
In case you were wondering what we have planned for the rest of the year, here is the link to the schedule that was in the January 15 newsletter. Felting, card weaving, and more are on the list!
