Tatting Contest 2019 and beyond!

2019 Fingerlakes Tatting Convention Contest Entries
Thank you to Martha Ess, Kari O'Connor and Karey Solomon for entering snowflake charm tatted projects in the 2019 convention competition. Martha made a snowflake, Kari tatted a bookmark, and Karey created a hatband.

Convention participants voted for their favorite entry. Martha Ess won the contest with her pale blue and white snowflake which followed the contours of the charm.

Everyone who attended the 2019 convention received a small tin to use in the 2020 tatting challenge. The theme is Tatting a Space Adventure and we're looking forward to seeing how you'll use your tin to tat a project for the next contest.

A note from Nina Libin:
Color choices for kits for Nina’s classes may be found here:
Nina urges those who have signed up for her Maltese pendant class to review and practice making Maltese Rings. These may not be taught in class, knowing the Maltese Ring is a prerequisite for the class.  Luckily, there’s time to learn and practice.  Find a tutorial Nina recommends here:
