SOME ASSORTED AND RAMBLING NOTES ABOUT PALMETTOS
Palmettos has a "Give-Away Table" full of things others wish to "gift" to others. I picked up these three plastic containers. They are just perfect for holding patterns or pieces of patterns that I have made permanent and portable by covering them with Scotch Photo Laminating Sheets.wish(I like the 3 in. x 4 in. size).
Marie Smith had a class on Thursday night (that we missed) where they made her "Everybody Needs an Angel" pattern. It is my understanding that most of the people in the class made multiple angels and donated the extras to Marie--who gives these away. I was in a class, later in the conference with Marie. She gave me this little precious angel decorated with a charm to commemorate the event.
Someone had the nifty idea to provide stickers to hang from our nametags. It was so neat to see the
different descriptions that people had picked for themselves! I didn't find the stickers until late on Saturday--so never did attach mine to my nametag--but these are what I picked for myself.

I got into a gift exchange several- several years ago....I'm not sure for what occasion or theme. I just know that whoever got my submission got gypped--I had no idea what I was doing.... Anyway, JB Locke received my name--and I got lovely things from her. One of the many items was this tatted motif. I contacted her, wondering where the lovely pattern came from--her reply was my introduction to the fantastic patterns by Mary Konior. I about dropped my teeth when introductions were made in one of my classes, and this lady with the hugest smile said she was JB Locke! How nice to put a face on a memory!
If you think the Palmettos Tat Days is just an event for little old ladies.... remember Jennifer from Tatting Corner? Her children were tatters and attended classes! Also, forget the ladies only rule--I saw one or two men tatting and there was a rather large group of men accompanying their wives this year, and it looked like they had a lot of fun!
I could never have attended the conference this year had it not been for the generosity of the
|Flowers upon returning home!|
I have no idea if or when I will be able to return to Palmettos--but I know I am already wishing I could attend Palmetto Tat Days 2016: Tatting is Out of This World!
