Does your list of New Year Resolutions include learning Beanile or cluny tatting? Your wish is our command– Mimi Dillman will be joining the Shuttlebirds workshop on May 4-7, 2017, to teach these tatting techniques.
Mimi is from the West Coast of Washington State. She has been tatting since the summer of 1982, when she taught herself the basics from a couple of general crafting books (back when there was no Internet!). After moving to the Seattle area a few years later, she joined the Lacemakers of Puget Sound where she was lucky enough to learn more advanced techniques from mentors such as Monica (Mona) Hahn, Bev Dillon and Diana Howe. While cluny tatting has been a big focus, Mimi is also studying BEANILE lacemaking, taking as many classes from Nina Libin as she can. Mimi has taught at several Shuttlebirds’ Tatting Workshops; three Palmetto Tat Days workshops, Georgia Seitz’ Online Tatting class, as well as workshops in California, Oregon and British Columbia. Her patterns have appeared in Tatting With Friends (Georgia Seitz, editor), the Bulletin of the IOLI, Canadian Lacemaker Gazette, and Lacemakers of Puget Sound and Heartland Lace Guild newsletters.
I know you may think there is plenty of time to register, but registration will close March 27, 2017. Hurry and sign up for classes before they fill up. Here is the link for further information: http://www.shuttlebirds.com/workshop2017.shtml
The Spokane area is now in a “deep freeze’ with the expected low temperature to reach, or is that dip to, minus 1 tonight. What perfect weather to tat snowflakes 🙂
