I have now been leading the Online Tatting Class for 14+ years. Although I have published
or edited 7 books, I find the greatest personal and professional satisfaction comes from
teaching new tatters. I have taught at many IOLI functions and local guilds: IOLI 2000,
2002, 2008, and 2009 conventions, Palmetto Tatters Guild Lace Days, Hector Lace Days,
The Lacemakers of Puget Sound, Spokane Shuttlebirds, Camp Wannatat, The Fringe
Element Lace Days, Freeway Lacers Workshop and private workshops.

I am an avid reader when my hands get too tired to hold my shuttle. My fav magazines are ARCHAEOLOGY and National Geographic.
