Hi, my name is Laura Evans. I have been tatting for 12 years. My tatting work has won county fair and state fair awards. I am a member of the International Old Lacers, Inc. and the International Association of Professional Quilters.
Currently, I am working on a Tatting Proficiency Program. Upon completion, a pin is awarded by the International Old Lacers, Inc. To follow my pursuit of the proficiency pin, read my Journal.
My logo is based on my original tatting design seen on the Home page. I call it the “Epiphany Star” because it was created during the season of Epiphany. So much of our progression in life depends upon epiphanies. Although insights can occur at critical times–changing the course of our lives, insights are not always that dramatic. Insight can occur when contemplating the ordinary things of life. A New England Astor in bloom, the soft purr of a friendly cat, and the gift of fresh air. These things bring a true thankfulness to us, automatically improving our quality of life.
Tatting is one of those immeasurable joys in life. When I combine tatting with insight, I see the Epiphany Star.
Our goal is to provide time saving, easy-to-read patterns with step-by-step instructions to help fill your world with beauty.
Twelve years ago, I tried to teach myself to tat using a book. In the past, I learned several needlearts by reading books. So I expected to learn tatting in a similar fashion. After reading several books I found the vast majority either assumed you knew how to tat or the instructions were unclear. This was frustrating.
ABC Tatting Pattern books and patterns are designed to remove frustration and save time. Time which can be spent on finishing those tatted beauties. Although my tatting has won awards on state and local levels, I believe all tatters are winners whether or not you enter a competition. When you tat, you win the finished tatted article!
