Like Jane and Georgia. They are the best tatters - and so much fun to be around.
And Marilee and Sue Anna. They brought some of Marilee's lovely HDT to share.
Here's cute Livi and her mama Jess. Jess had yummy thread to sell!
Isdihara (AKA the best roommate EVER) and Anita. They're in the same VA lace guild.
Nancy and GR-8 brother Randy. Da Udder Brudder was recovering from an accident - we missed you Gary!
Krystal Dawne's mama Karrieann, working on an angel in my class.
Arlene, showing off the bracelet she made in my class. Isn't it cute? Arlene is the nicest person.
Spouses David and Sharren were there. Sharron is a hoot, and David is a dear. He's her tatting sherpa!
President Donna at the podium, with new president Teresa on the right. This was at our banquet. These are NOT stuffy people. There was MUCH laughter at the banquet.
Here are folks going to the banquet - Isdihara, the lovely HJ Hess, some unknown lame tatter, and Susan Fuller (who wrote Heart's Desire!)
More folks at the banquet - Hannah Lindhom (of Sweden), Linda Adair (Gina Brummett's sister), Sally and Riet. Hannah's sister Sara Bergman's dark head is in the foreground, next to Laurie Simmons, Gina's daughter.
Hannah provided entertainment for us at the banquet! She was quite good.
Folks gathered to have fun afterwards. Front - Isdihara, Jane and Sally. Back - Karey, some old fool, HJ Hess, and Sue Anna. Don't worry - we were toasting with grape juice. Ms. Hess's TBH took the picture.
It was TONS of fun. For those who haven't ever been to Palmetto Tat Days, you should at least try and go some day. It's worth it!
Lily (who Larry calls 'weapons-class adorable') didn't care about tatting. She was home sacked out.
