Mackie Rd Tat and Chat Group

This group has been operating for more than 25 years, and we are a small group of enthusiasts of the art of making lace, using shuttles (nothing to do with tattoos!).  We share patterns, techniques, books and the latest in threads over a cuppa and a chat.  Tatting embraces not only treasured old patterns, but also jewellery, braids and motifs for clothing, Christmas ornaments and decorations, and much more.
