Learn Needle Tatting at the Edinburgh Yarn Festival 2015

I’m very excited to be able to announce that Ill be teaching needle tatting at the 2015 Edinburgh Yarn Festival.

This inexpensive yet versatile lace technique can be used to create everything from accessories and embellishments to decorations and even jewellery.

You’ll learn the basic lark’s head knot and double stitch and how to create lace patterns with chains, rings and picots.

I’ll take you through pattern-reading skills and show you where to find vintage patterns. Other techniques you’ll learn include: joins, node stitch, beads, floating rings and split rings.

Use the skills you’ve learned to make a stunning lace bookmark or pendant.

Edinburgh Yarn Festival LogoThe Edinburgh Yarn Festiival was first held in 2013. It was an outstanding success – almost frighteningly so. You can read my blog post about it. The next one is on March 14 & 15 and promises to be even bigger. I’m seriously excited about it and hope you can make it. If you are going to come up and you can’t get a place in my class – after all, there’s heaps of other classes and numbers are limited, then let me know so that I can say hi!
