Finger Lakes Tatting Convention

They sent the registration package out yesterday for the Finger Lakes Tatting Convention.  It used to be called the Hector Tatting Seminar but since its moved to a new location in Lodi they've used a new name.  The fire hall in Lodi is a little bigger and a little better laid out.  Plus its closer to the outlet mall! 
Its on the 14th and 15th of April which is a Saturday, Sunday combination.  If you're never been its a great experience and the food is really good!  (food is very important to me)

I'm excited to be teaching again this year. My project is a bracelet with dimpled hearts and beads. Its a great opportunity to try out using the Balanced Double Stitch (BDS) and see the difference between a BDS and a ds. The bracelet length is easily shortened for smaller wrists and was approved by my 6 year old niece Julia. Since she is very particular about her jewelry I thought it was a good sign.   Each year I have a really hard time trying to figure out what class to take.  Teaching makes it so I can only take the long classes but I'm still having a hard time deciding.  
To make it easier for anyone planning to attend I've provided pictures of my project The Hearty Bracelet.
