Membership has its benefits, or so they say! In this case, I believe it's true! I am a fairly active member of The Tatting Forums, and Chris Hinton has designed a new shuttle especially for members.
Lucky me... I am one of the first to receive one of these little beauties! The top side says "The Tatting Forums, Est. 2010."
The bottom side has my name and my member number. I LOVE it! It's made out of cherry, and it can be ordered with or without a pic tip.
Oh, and the pretty little blue pen... it's my quad hook pen from LadyShuttleMaker, with hook sizes 10, 11, 12, and 14. I can hardly wait to use it! Mine doesn't have a lanyard, but that's okay. Now I have a reason to do more shopping! ; )
