Tat Days 2021

 Another year has come and gone.  Palmetto Tat Days was held at a new location this year, Lake Junaluska, NC.  It is a nice setting.  Yes, as with any new location, there were some kinks, but for the most part, Tat Days went on as usual.

Georgia Seitz made it this year!  It was nice to see her feeling/looking  good and enjoying the weekend with everyone.

Thursday evening started with a resin class from Mike Lyon.  We made pendents using 2-part resin.  Not difficult at all.  Enjoyed the evening and all pendents looked nice.  I made Marie Smith's angel using 2-strands of embroidery floss.  

Friday I was in Bonnie Swank's Nina's Beanile Lace Grape Earrings class.  Need to put findings on and they will be complete.  

The Online Tatting class held a live YouTube interview with Georgia Seitz in the afternoon.  It was a great way to be asking questions one on one with her.  Glad to have so many join in the live stream.  If you were not able to make it or did not know about it, click on link and watch the interview.  Might be surprized at some of her answers.

Live auction was held in the evening.  There was plenty of laughs and entertainment for everyone.

Saturday was the Beaded Medallion in a Bangle by Melissa Deputy.  Nice and easy pattern.  Also had a class by Bonnie for Nina's Beanile Lace One Strip Bracelet.  It is almost complete.  It will match the earrings.

Banquet was held Saturday evening.  Rest of the evening was used to relax, catchup with tatting friends, decorating shuttles, and finishing projects.  

Lack of sleep also was part of the weekend.  However, I now have a year to recoup and get ready for 2022!
