Shuttlebirds 2013 and my BIG project

Shuttlebirds was a great success this year. I taught three classes, two of which were sold out. The students were fantastic as usual. We all had fun and learned a lot. I always learn something new every year!
This year something very special happened. My sister and 10 yr old nephew joined the fun! My nephew took the beginner tatters course and is a natural! Not only did he do well but he had a great time. I loved how all the tatters were so gracious and welcoming to him! I hope he continues his tatting journey!
If you have never been to a tatting convention I highly recommend it! I've said it before but it is worth repeating; Shuttlebirds is the highlight of my year!

Well friends, I am super excited to finally share what I have been up to the past several weeks/months. I have been designing 1920's style headdresses. "Empress" is just one out of five styles that I've created and is the very first one I am debuting! The others will follow shortly. I have made these into full kits which include absolutely everything except your shuttle/needle. They come in a few different colors. I am working on more kits. I can't begin to tell you how much work and expense I have into this project so I hope they go over well. They had a lovely reception at Shuttlebirds, so I have high hopes!
"EMPRESS" can be found here!
