Mackie Rd Tatting 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.  We would welcome anyone who would like to join us on the first Monday of each month school- and public holidays excepted.
