Patty: when you are ready with your text on Celtic tatting I suggest that you create a DISCUSSION in the TATTING GROUP.  That will allow you to post any diagrams, photos or whatever.  You can even attach a file pdf docx gif jpg.  I look forward to it.

Your class sounds like it needed and army, not just one teacher.  I've done all three of those laces.  But never all at one time, fluently enough to teach them in the same class.

Patty: thanks for pointing our the reference to needlelacetalk in one of my NOTES.  I copied the text from the other group.  I thought I had caught all the wrong references, but apparently not.  I have fixed it.

That wasn't a software issue, it was a Lorelei not reading everything she writes carefully enough -- issue.

You can post your IOLI convention tatting class as an EVENT, if you wish.  The point is not so much to bring you students (you may have enough already, but to inform the world of the kinds of classes that are available.  The wide range of what is going on.

Nice to see you here, and Welcome.  Please read all the NOTES, which explain our policies, and how the software works.  Join whatever groups interest you.  Post some photos of your lace.  If you have any questions, contact me and I'll try to help.
