Tatting Days and Other Events

Usually a tatting day runs from 10 - 4. You take a packed lunch but drinks are provided all day. There is generally a workshop and a supplier, and maybe a competition - but just enjoy tatting and chatting if you prefer. In the UK tickets are about £3-£5. Beginners are always welcome and this is a great way to learn with lots of people to help you. You don't have to be a member of the Ring to attend.

Tatting workshops, exhibitions and fairs are also included here.

More details in the Newsletter or Contact Us.
