About the Guild

The Greater Milwaukee Tatting Guild is monthly, informal meetings of people who like tatting lace

Tatting, also known as frivolit√©, is a knotted form of handmade lace, perfect to embellish projects from cards to quilts. When combined with beads, tatting produces fabulous lace jewelry - from classic to steampunk. 


Meeting Schedule:  Usually the 2nd Monday of the month

Location:  Mayfair Mall Food Court, 2500 N Mayfair Rd, Milwaukee, WI, U.S.A.
Time: From 3pm to about 7pm, with members arriving whenever they can within that time frame.

The meetings are informal and friendly, and beginners are welcome. It’s an excellent environment in which to acquire new tatting skills, as well as to work on your latest tatting project and share your enthusiasm with friends. Guild leader is Marilee Rockley, the Shuttle Tatting instructor at http://www.craftsy.com/shuttletatting

I can't wait until Monday...I get so excited about gathering with this group of women/girls. Always something to either learn or pass on to someone else.

Hi. I have always wanted to learn tatting. I have seen the online tutorials but prefer to learn with someone. Are there any classes or individuals who might be willing to mentor me in the Milwaukee Wisconsin area? Thanks in advance. Kate

It's free! No dues yet. We just get together to tat, learn about tatting, and have fun!

I really miss getting together with you ladies and hope when school is out, we'll be coming up again. I've been doing lots of tatting and will be eager to show-off to..!
