April monthly meeting    


At our April meeting at the Sturbridge Federated Church, 8 Maple Street, Sturbridge, MA our program will be "Learn how to tat" presented by NELG members Carolyn Wetzel and Sharon Sacco. If you have struggled to figure out how to tat, this is your chance to learn first-hand from two experienced tatters. Additionally, for more advanced tatters, we will show how to make a 3-dimensional rose motif using split rings.

For materials, please bring a smooth thread size 10-40. For beginners, two colors are helpful, and larger threads are preferred.  Some thread will also be provided for use.  Tatting shuttles are recommended, although there will be something to tat with even if you don’t have a shuttle.  Scissors and a small crochet hook can be useful.

We will bring some tatting examples as well as some modern books for inspiration.
