Here's a view from the deck of the motel looking towards the main lodge. The main gathering room is the second floor and overlooks the river, as does the dining room on the other side of the lodge..

Wow!  That looks like a terrific venue. You are making me Very jealous!!!!!!  :)

Thank you for putting up these photos. I don't do Facebook, so miss out on some things! Very best wishes for another successful weekend. - as I am sure it will be!

I scrounged up some photos from Shuttlebirds' Facebook page to share.  This is main floor lobby at the Ross Point venue.  

And here's the view from the cafeteria:

The classrooms range from intimate to quite large

And there is even a recreation area in the downstairs lobby for "plus-one" non-tatter with billiards, foosball, and ping-pong tables!

I will do my best to take and share photos, Elizabeth.  Last year it didn't even cross my mind to report to you all, and I was way too busy taking classes with a bum foot (major surgery a few months before) to take any photos myself.  It has actually just come up that we don't have anyone in Shuttlebirds doing any marketing beyond the local demonstrations in which we participate. This may be why our Workshop hasn't been growing much, even though we've been running for 22 years now!

I would love to come to the Shuttlebirds Weekend, - but distance etc gets in the way!!!  (I am in Melbourne, Australia!!)

Best wishes to all who manage to get there, - and please give us a report, - with some photos, afterwards.

Shuttlebirds 22nd Annual Tatting Workshop registration is still open, and I'm hoping to see some of you there!  Even if you cannot travel to Spokane, please check out the class listings at and let us know what you think.  We are trying to make our Workshop enticing and would love to hear from you!  We moved to a new location last year, with on-site rooms and professional catering at Ross Point Camp and Conference Center in Post Falls, ID.
