Tatting is the process of making lace by forming knots and loops with thread and a tatting shuttle. Tatted pieces of lace are often used as edgings, doilies, and other decorative items. In this beginner class, Pam Tucker, a former president of the Minnesota Lace Society, will cover the basic tatting skills of chain, ring, picot, and joins. Students will practice what they learn to create a lace Christmas ornament. Pam began tatting in the 1970's and has been expanding her skills and teaching ever since!
