Have shuttle-Will travel

Last night I had the opportunity to teach someone to tat! Ok I have taught others, but this was the first time I actually had someone who picked it up like a fish to water. She got the ds stitch, how to transfer the flip, picots, rings, joins and chains- all in about 2 hours. I left her with a copy of "Learn To Tat" by Jeanette Baker(pic to the right), a couple of shuttles and some thread. Now normally I wouldn't get excited, but she is under 30, not related to me and she is already a talented artist in her own right. It was fun and can't wait to get together again to see how she does! Who knows maybe we can start our own tatting club here in Northern Illinois!:)

I can see why you got so excited that you gave her all that stuff! She really did take to it from the sounds of it! That is cool! Congratulations to the new tatter...now, we've just got to get her blogging, LOL!

Good for you! And good for the student. Sounds as if you both had a great time! It is magical when that sort of thing happens... : )

(major typo in previous comment) I'm looking forward to hearing how your student does and hopefully to see some of her work. Please keep us informed of her progress.
