Cardiff 2006

Creative Stitches and Hobbycrafts, CIA

This year our members in Wales staged a truly magical winter celebration in tatting. They even used this year's fashionable Christmas colour scheme of black and white! The high quality is made possible by the lively tatting scene that has developed in South Wales. The tatting is provided by three groups, the Isca Tatters (Caerleon) led by Lynne Webber and Jean Johnston, the Cwmbran Tatters (who are working for a tatting qualification under Lynne's leadership), and the Cardiff Picot Group led by Jennifer Williams. As a spin-off from this Show another new group has formed, the Seaside Shuttles at Penarth!
This fairy-tale princess provided an amazing focal point for the stand. For more detail go to Christmas Tatting by Jennifer Williams.
 
This must be a first - a tatted Flower Shop! The idea for this came to Lynne Webber as a 'natural development' from the flowers in pots made for last year's show. Her husband constructed the shop.
The next 'natural development' was the Hat Shop! It came about because somebody spotted some tiny straw hats and realised their potential. Members each decorated hats as they wished, finishing them off with a tatted trimming.
