Welcome puddy-tat

I can needle tat, but have not been able to master or even begin shuttle tatting. We do have some tremendous tatters on the board!

puddy-tat is trying to get the hang of the forum in between waiting on customers. I think her main question is about shuttle tatting but she is also interested in needle tatting.

She and I will talk more tomorrow and I'll try to show her how things work here. Ummm...just to warn y'all...she's a nut like me. Big Grin

I knew how to shuttle tat about "500" years ago...Wink...but have forgotten everything I know. We do have some beautiful tatters on this board that will surely be along to help you.

Howdy to the boards from Texas. Wave We are a friendly, helpful group here & always willing to do what we can to make new members feel comfortable & welcome. We love pictures & want to see what you are doing.

Am more than happy to try and help but remember I'm a self taught tatter so am still learning myself. There are a lot of very good videos on the Internet that helped me. Get back to me if you would like.

Oh no, Sherry Smile. I'm not the tatting Lisa, that's IowaLisa. She doesn't get her too often, but I can send her a message to come over for some tat chat. Jean (jayardi) is also quite a tatter. Some other amazing tatting talent that will surely jump in to chat.

Welcome!

Just wanted to say HI! and Welcome!

No I can't tat. Tried to learn needle and shuttle at retreats but it was a no go! IowaLisa and Jayardi do beautiful tatting!

I admire anyone who can tat.

● ● ● Welcome to the boards. I would be happy to help, but like Margie, I am self-taught and NO expert. My schedule has been very hectic lately, but I'll try to help when I can.

Welcome puddy-tat!!! Anyone who is a friend of KeepYouInStitches can't be all bad.

I have done a little needle tatting and Jayardi tried to teach us how to shuttle tat at last years COF retreat. Sadly we didn't do too good and I have not picked it up very much since then. Someone on here will help you. This is a great bunch of helpful ladies.

Welcome, puddy tat. How nice of Sherry to drag you here!

What is your tatting question? I have done just a small amount of it, but I have a cousin (who taught me) that has been tatting since 1973 and most likely can help if others can't.

puddy-tat was having trouble keeping her loops tight (or something like that). She figured it out last Friday.

She is diligently working to create a finished project to show off.

Nicely done, Puddy-Tat. I taught myself to needle tat about 8 years ago when I bought a book by Barbara Foster on the subject. She runs "Handy Hands", which is an on-line tatting supply resource. She has threads, shuttles, needles and books galore. Oh, and if you want to have someplace to send your tatting, watch out for the 12 Days of Christmas swap (sign-ups in later September). We would all love to get one of your tatted beauties (you only have to send 12 items). Continued good luck with your new-found hobby. And welcome, welcome to the board.
