My featured Merit Badge Awardee of the Week is … Cyrie Wilson
Cyrie Wilson (Pixiedustdevil, #6941) has received a certificate of achievement in Stitching & Crafting for earning an Expert Level Tatting Merit Badge!
“First I made a bunch of snowflakes from 2 different patterns.
A friend of mine commented on my tatting; she knew how to tat with a shuttle, but not a needle. She made the suggestion that I teach a basic tatting class.
To make a long story short, an announcement was made that I would be teaching needle tatting. Ten people signed up. I made copies of the instructions and wrote an easy pattern for them to learn.
In the end, 6 people showed up (those who couldn’t made appointments), and the class lasted 4 hours!
It was difficult to teach a class, but luckily, my friend was in it, picked the instructions up quickly, and helped me walk around and help people who were lost. I didn’t have time to take pictures.
They requested that I teach 2 more classes on how to tat a snowflake and starch the snowflakes. I haven’t set a date yet.”
