Goodness knows, I’ve teased you enough times with hints of my tatted lace wedding accessories.  This time, though, it’s for real.  My Etsy shop is open and I have items for sale.  I’m putting them on sale one at a time, so please visit often to see what’s new.

It takes a long, long time to make pieces of tatting, so I will always have a small stock of items. I will have wedding accessories, gifts, items for the home, and (eventually) some other things that will be completely different.  I have tons of ideas, but it takes a long time to bring them to fruition.

I hope you enjoy my lace creations.  I also do custom work, so if you see something that’s almost perfect for you, let me know.  I can probably create something that is just right.  Visit often, and please make me one of your Favorites.

I’ve been sending out teasers from time to time about my tatted lace.  Really, it will be on Etsy before you know it.

But I also teach tatting, for those who want to make some of this beautiful art for themselves.  I have two classes scheduled at Pamela Penney Textile Arts in Oak Park.  The classes are scheduled for Tuesday, February 21, 7:00 p.m. and Wednesday, February 29, 1:00 p.m.

In a two-hour class, you will be able to learn all the basics of tatted lace, along with some of its history and trivia.  If you’re interested, I encourage you to sign up now for the class.

Did you think I forgot about my lace wedding accessories?  Not at all!  But it takes a long time to make tatted lace, and I have been busy building up inventory before putting them up for sale.  (Look for me on Etsy very soon!)  Here’s another sneak preview.

Remember the garter I posted about?  This is a coordinating ring-bearer’s pillow.  The ribbons are for tying the rings onto the pillow.  They can also be removed easily, so you can even use this as a decorative cushion in your home after you are married.  Here’s another shot:

I even expect to be able to do these in custom colors to match any wedding decor.  If you want more information, be sure to drop me an e-mail.

Sneak Preview: Lisa’s Lace!

I have another part of my business besides wedding and event planning.  I also make handmade lace wedding accessories.  Lace wedding garters will go on sale very soon.

Above is a photo of a garter.  The lace is all made by hand (by me, of course).  Tatted lace is made of thousands of knots on very tiny thread.  Each garter contains about 17,000 knots!  The lace is attached to satin ribbon, and the garter has a soft cotton backing.  The garter is entirely constructed by hand.

Here is a close-up:

These garters are unique wedding accessories, unlike anything else you will find, anywhere.  If you are interested in these garters, please contact me at Lace<at>LisaGordonEvents<dot>com.  I will have more information available soon, so check back.
