A while ago, during a craftsy sale, I bought access to Marilee’s “Next steps in shuttle tatting” online class. I have watched through a couple of classes during January and printed the class materials. Finally on Thursday evening I decided to load up my shuttles and beads and get started. I learned how to do Catherine Wheel joins – a technique I had always converted to lock joins in the past. After watching Marilee and a couple of tries I now realize the difference in the joins and am very pleased with the effect.
I also like the convenience of this format of classes- the sequence and included materials are a new approach for me. In the past I have worked somewhat randomly with YouTube and the online tatting classes Georgia Seitz runs, as a just in time learning tool for a specific technique. All are fabulous resources too, with great flexibility.
I wonder which formats you like to learn through, and if you have been surprised with a particular product?
Until next time, happy tatting.
