Please mark your calendar for these special events. Nina Libin will show the main features of ANKARS tatting. This method of tatting has a very strong (tight and stiff) foundation and is decorated with beads after tatting is done. Please note that ANKARS and BEANILE are different, but they have a lot in common: both are tatting and both use beads and seed beads. Sometimes there are pre-strung seed beads in ANKARS, and occasional larger beads are used in some BEANILE projects, especially in needle tatted pieces.

There will be 4 lessons on ANKARS: Feb. 25, March 11, March 25 and April 8, 2013.
