Another Palmetto Tatters Guild TatDays Event in the books ... and on-line! In addition to a wonderful slate of teachers with fun and challenging patterns, we went live Friday night to create a World record consisting of the largest number of tatters, at the same time, tatting the same pattern. The recorded video can be found at World Record 23-Sep-2011. In addition to the 62 who were in the room at Toccoa, GA, there were another 65 from all around the world who joined us via FB or U-stream. It was really fun and there are a lot of pictures posted from others on FB and hopefully their blogs.
There were so many new faces this year ... many that I've corresponded with during the last ten or so years. Of course, we always welcome the faces who come every year and want to thank the entire Guild for the planning and hard work that goes into an event like ours. Our international traveler's this year included Riet from The Netherlands and Maria from Mexico.
Also joining us were Tracy and Bill of The Lacemaker from Cortland, OH. Of course they had the latest Lizbeth colors as well as some proto type shuttles that will soon be available (I think) from Handy Hands. They are interesing! In size between a SewMate and a Tatsy, they remind me of overgrown Boye plastic shuttles. They appear to hold a lot of thread!
Will post more later!
