Hi all! I will be attending the 3rd annual ArtFest in New Castle, PA, on Saturday and Sunday, May 26th and 27th, Memorial Day weekend. I will be bringing everything that is listed in my Etsy shop, Snappy Tatter, as well as many pieces I have not listed yet. Here is the first gallery of my unlisted work.
Drip, Frilly Drip and Flash Drip tatted earrings with Czech Glass beads and Glass Pearls:
Drops with Czech Glass and Crystal, Swarovski Crystal or Glass Pearls:
Additional Earrings with Czech Glass, Swarovski, Glass Pearls or Sterling Rounds. Bounce, Decadence, Flair and Hope:
All work will be available at the ArtFest. Most of my work is one of a kind because of the amount of patterns I have created and the flexibility to alter my own work. With the exception of the simplest earrings, I tend to tat my designs or embellish them in a different way each time I make them. I have a tremendous amount of colors to choose from in my stash of cords as well as tons of fabric, findings, ribbon, metallic and embroidery threads and beads. I frequently use exceptional quality Czech glass, glass pearls, Celestial, Czech and Swarovski Crystal, wood, shell, semi-precious stones, Sterling and Cubic Zirconia to embellish my work. The jewelry findings are Sterling Silver, Sterling plated, or Gunmetal plated or Black plated over Aluminum chain.
As well as bringing my photo albums of my work, I will have business cards, gift boxes and brochures on my history, the history of tatting and Fiber Art care.
I will be glad to take custom orders on any design except for the Snappy Couture designs and Fiber Art pieces which are always one-of-a-kind. And I am always happy to collaborate on bridal work.
Cash will be the easiest way to pay. I can take personal checks or credit cards and I will hold the item until personal check clears and then ship directly to your home. As for credit, I can send an invoice through PayPal and ship after it has been paid or set up a listing in my Etsy shop to be paid.
Hopefully, I will have access to electricity in which case I can take credit on the spot through PayPal or my Etsy shop. Keeping my fingers crossed as I noticed I did not check the box for electricity on my application. Ugh. I am going to bring a 20 ft. extension cord to see if I can snag some juice from someone close by.
It’s crunch time in Snappy Tatter-land, lots of tatting and working going on around here. This weekend I will be wrapping everything up with pricing, tags and storing my work for travel. I will add to my gallery of work as I have time.

Cheers everyone! Enjoy your day!
