Civil War Tatting

On Saturday I will be giving a short talk on tatting at a stitcher's guild meeting, and hope to mention how tatting fits into the Civil War timeframe.

I am not well-versed in Civil War historical research. Luckily I don't need to be. Virginia Mescher has published a great article on Civil War tatting that Kersti kindly posted with permission over at InTatters forum.

Historian Lorene Payne of the Southern Fauquier Historical Society is coming to speak at the Piedmont Lace Guild's April meeting. She will give a presentation on Ladies Wear of the Americas in full 19th century garb!

The program is open to guild members and guests.
E-mail to join me as my guest.

Hope and Union

design*sponge loves this little peek inside a sunny, Charleston, SC coffee shop called Hope and Union and I must confess to mirroring her yearning to move inside. But for a different reason.

I want to tat there! Bet I'm not alone.

Who lives close enough to this coffee shop to go, tat and take pictures so I can live vicariously through you?
