I'M SOOO EXCITED! I leaving tomorrow to go to Spokane, WA to the Shuttlebirds Tatting Workshop. I have been there once (probably 15+ years ago). Looking forward to seeing alot of old and new friends from that part of the country. I'm teaching, vending, and trying a totally new venture: Make-It-Take-It Enamel Shuttles. I have been creating the shuttles with various (somewhat innocuous) base colors. I am taking several colors of enamels with me and various ways to decorate... the shuttles further. Then tatters will use these materials to decorate their own shuttle. I will torch-fire the shuttle into a unique work of art. This is a pilot project for me....I have been prepping for months. The pre-sale response has been overwhelmingly good for me. Now I just hope this whole idea works and tatters get shuttles they are happy with. If it works like I hope it does, there should be some beautiful new shuttles produced. I'll try to take pictures.
