Tatting Teachers and Classes

Here is the beginning of what we hope to be a long list of tatting teachers, guilds, and other groups. We hope this will be a good resource for you to find teachers and other tatters to socialize and learn with.

If you would like to be listed here, please send us an email at nancy@be-stitched.com. For individuals, we will list your email address, but not your home address or telephone number. For businesses, we will list your address and phone number.

In the hopes of reducing any spam that may result as having a listing here, we have changed the “@” sign in email addresses to “(at)”.

As always, whether you be the teacher or the student, exercise caution when meeting new people for the first time.
